Furlough In Clik Service & Clik Remote
With such uncertain times ahead, many businesses are adapting to new forms of working. Whether it involves working from home or, in some circumstances, asking staff to take a temporary period of leave.
Due to current circumstances involving Coronavirus (COVID-19), many employees may be making the difficult decision to put employees on furlough for a period of time.
With the latest updates to Clik Service and Clik Remote, we have added new functionalities to ensure you are able to continue working if necessary and help manage staff members that are on furlough.
Please see the Government website for further details on the furlough scheme, what it entails and how to apply.
We understand that this is the chosen approach for many businesses so we have made some updates to both Clik Service and Clik Remote to help manage these changes to staff leave.
In Clik Service, you can adjust staff settings to add a period of leave for users. Whether you are working remotely or on emergency work, ensure you and your staff are aware of any unprecedented changes to working situations and can easily see who is on leave and when they are due to return.
We’ve added a new diary option to easily turn the furlough settings on or off when required. The engineer schedule will also display the appropriate message for engineers on furlough.
These features were added in update v4.330 r24, which can now be downloaded by all users with Clik Cover.
The Clik Remote Manager diary also has the capabilities to display staff furlough status, including the duration of leave. If you have set up the furlough, you will be able to quickly adjust the item view settings to display these in the diary.
The engineer schedule in Clik Remote Manager has also been updated to include the furlough for engineers.
To get these additional fields in Clik Remote Manager, you will need to be running Clik Service update v4.330 r24 and Clik Remote v6.1.14. If you are unsure on how to update your Clik Remote site, please refer to this guide.
We are currently providing a free Clik Remote Manager licence to Clik Service users until the end of May to help with remote working. You must have a least one Clik Service licence and valid Clik Cover. You can request for your licence here.
