The Workflow module is designed to automate some of the HR department’s more mundane and repetitive tasks, which can use up the valuable time and resources of the department, leaving HR personnel free for more important work.
This module is inherent in all areas of the application. The module waits for circumstances to occur which it reacts upon, instigating a chain of one or more actions, each individually designed by the user/administrator. These actions can be initiated as soon as the module is presented with the new information, for example, as an absence record is entered, or alternatively at scheduled intervals, for example, at a weekly review of absence records.
The action itself could then be, for example, the production of an email to the absent employee to remind them to produce the appropriate absence certification and present it to their line manager.
