In order to gain grater value for the clients Upsteem.com is going through some changes, in connection with which we develop the system and add new functions to it.
Instead of current structure view Uspteem.com users will see the renewed view. The functionality comparing to the old view has not changed, but we have been working on usability and design.
On the left side of the structure view You can find my contacts, company and direct reports. From “My contacts” You will see the same contacts as You saw from “People” but the new view will automatically add contact information like email, phone number, Skype. In addition, You can search the contacts from “Filter” by name and company.
Direct reports will show the people who work in child companies/departments and are managers. In case no managers are found in sub department all people are considered to be subordinates.
You can start all the activities in structure from the “Actions” button. In order to add a department or new employment You need to click on the “Actions” button behind the department.
If You want to add new department the system will take You back to the old view and there are no changes at the moment.
The view for adding new employment is new but the functions are the same – You can add the vacancy information, search person by name or create new person.
From the “Actions” button You can edit work profile, delete vacancy, transfer vacancy and employment, start evaluation and appraisal interview.
If You start evaluation and appraisal interview then the system redirects You to old view and nothing has changed in there yet but all the other actions will take You to new view.
“Edit work profile” function allows You to change the role name, employment time and in addition You can add/change/delete job families.
If You wish to delete a position from the
structure You can use “Delete vacancy” button which will remove the position
from the structure.
“Transfer vacancy” function allows You to transfer position from one department to another but “Transfer employment” transfers the position and the person to a vacant position.
Upsteem will continue improving and next we will improve our training module. Once we are ready to present the training module, we will let our users know!
