Sage HR updates


7 February

Working patterns are now part of Core HR and available to all users. This means you can set up working patterns, assign them to your employees and use them to differentiate full-time employees from other types, even if you don’t have the Timesheets module. And there’s more to come – we’ll shortly be introducing updates that will allow working patterns to integrate with time-off policies.
