Mobile PTO Updates

Requesting PTO is one of the most common activities that people complete through the BambooHR mobile app, and we’re constantly looking for ways to improve.

With this series of updates, you’ll notice a brand new request screen that has a scrollable graph, which shows your PTO over time, taking into account your upcoming PTO requests as well. It also has a handy reference to vacation policy on the bottom of the screen. These updates allow you (and your employees) to easily visualize how your future PTO balance will be affected by scheduled time off.

Additionally, we’ve added new warning screens for situations where requested PTO will leave the employee with a negative balance. These screens will display for both managers and employees. In pre-release testing we saw this increase PTO approval rates by 3%!

As always, we love your feedback! To provide product feedback on this feature and more, head over to our product feedback page and let us know how we’re doing.
