The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series of posts on the new features of, the soon to be released, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.
The twelfth Feature of the Day is Employee Self Service Functionality. The new Employee Profile window in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 is an extension of the Employee Self Service functionality allows employees to view and/or update their personal information including Address/Phone Numbers, Emergency Contacts, Dependants, and Position History.
Employees maintain their Education and Tests in the Employee Skills and Training window and view their Skills and Training History.
Workflow functionality is integrated so employees can submit changes and managers can approve changes from a Navigation List or from an email notification.
The roles targeted by this feature are:
- Self Service Users
- Payroll Managers
- HR Managers
