Vacation and leave tracing with cloud based Human Resources

Human Resources or Human Capital Management responsibilities include tracking and scheduling vacation and leave time for employees. Human Resource cloud software at Wyn Rocket include facilities for tracking upcoming and historical leave and vacation for the enterprise as well as for individuals.

The WRbil employee screen contains a vacation and leave option on the left, and the same left option is available for employees. If you are looking at leave from an employee view, you will only see records for that employee. To see all records return to the all employees screen and look at leave records from there.

Standard leave categories include vacation, sick and family/medical leave.

Leave records can be viewed for the current fiscal year and prior fiscal year. Leave records are not saved older than the prior fiscal year.

Leave records have approval fields and room to record the payroll period and rates for which the leave was paid/granted.

Improve communications about leave and vacation management with easier reporting and spreadsheet compatible leave reporting for employees and the company.

Employees can see their leave approval status and leave/vacation paid and unpaid history.

Reduce paperwork while keeping records of employee and company history of leave and vacation, allows for notes on leave requested and granted.

Manager managed, not an out of control cluster fish of employee requests.

Transparency without maleability

When the boss sends his troops out to find software, a system to store and share assets and orders, calculate things like hours, inventory, sales and costs, the shoppers are never fully equipped to evaluate our options.

Like a teenager with their first car, we have little perspective, even in a smaller and less pervasive arena like human resources in the cloud, to know what we need in terms of horsepower and legroom.

The process becomes a journey of ‘demos’ and one player in the group finds some things they want, sways the remaining shoppers and the company adopts a platform.

Over the years, some companies have adopted everything from Peachtree to Quickbooks, while other companies have rolled their own systems with bells and whistles that fit their business to a degree with which no generic solution could ever compete. Still, cloud based software solutions also have features that home grown solutions may need, but sorely lack.

Features of (some) cloud based software solutions;

  1. Authentication – a user and a password, at the minimum, identify the person that might be updating, or messing up data.
  2. Advanced Authentication – two factor or three factor, thumbprint, keyfob, or more recently, sms based.
  3. Encryption – all data that flows over any network is encrypted.
  4. Multi level authority – setting the level of authority by user, can they view, add, update or even delete data.
  5. Audit Trails – a complete record of changes that have been applied to a field or a record of the database. (WRbil does both)

Priv and Auth

Authentication – Identity and verification of such.

Authority – What an identity is allowed to do.

Privilege – Heightened ability to do things within what is allowed.

Privacy – individual areas of data storage, especially when dealing with intermediate results.

Wdub or dub-dub

A Wdub (pronounced dub dub) is a predefined format for importing and exporting data. Employee data has a predefined format of id, first_name, last_name, home_phone, cell_phone, hire_date, term_date, separation_info, address1, category.

Wdub is predefined to streamline import and export of data. WRbil provides data Wdub export so that the data may be more readily imported. Wdub import is a single step rapid operation requiring no tedious matching of column headings for effective results. Wdub import may re-assign id’s during import, if a conflict is detected.

The Xdub is more complete and is only defined by the spreadsheet produced.

Custom is an export of exactly the field headings used for the super list. There is no import option for custom spreadsheets.

Cloud HR

Simply put, Cloud HR is software to organize and manage workforce records.


Cloud means that you will not or may not be installing an application on your computer.

An example of an application that you install on your computer is Adobe Reader, alternate browsers like Chrome and Firefox, cCleaner, Norton, Outlook, iTunes, Skype, etc.

Cloud applications generally run on your browser. If you don’t know what that is, think Internet Explorer or Safari. That’s the place where you use the internet. You check mail, access your bank information, search for homes, or contribute to Wikipedia with your browser application. All computers have a built in browser these days, including tablets and smart phones.


HR stands for Human Resources, also called Human Capital Management, what used to be called things like personnel or employee department. All companies have HR functions, larger companies have an entire department committed to Human Resources. HR applications deal with the functions that occur in the ‘HR bubble,’ i.e. hiring (onboarding) employees and managing the nuances of today’s employer environment, including sick time, missed days, hours worked, vacation and leave, health benefits, worker compensation, drug testing, etc.

Onboarding, or the hiring and interviewing process has become a application of it’s own, with some companies looking through thousands of resumes and managing hundreds of interviews to grow and maintain a workforce.

HR Documents

Many cloud applications include a pre-defined storage quota for employee documentation, such as resumes, employment applications, I-( forms, DOT forms, etc. You scan the document to your computer and upload it to the application. At Wyn Rocket HCM, you are only limited by the size of your Dropbox purchase, we offload document storage to a company that specializes in document storage, Dropbox. Wyn Rocket organizes the documents by employee and HR managers do not have the burden of managing directories and figuring out each others filing schemes, they do all their Dropbox activity through their WRbil cloud application. If IT departments are going to use the Dropbox desktop app in sync with IT managers preparing their HR department Dropbox account, they are encouraged to look into Dropbox’ Extended Version History functions. Dropbox users and even IT staff have made many documented mistakes with the Dropbox client and assumptions about how it should work.

How to avoid Dropbox Problems

Here is a simple list for IT managers on how to avoid Dropbox file deletion problems.

  1. Understand that whether or not you use the desktop app, if you delete a file, even by accident, everyone’s copy is deleted
  2. Don’t use the desktop app, to avoid one computer deleting another computers files.
  3. If you are going to use the desktop app, understand Extended Version History
  4. Even if you are not going to use the desktop app, understand Extended Version History
  5. In WRbil, only administrators can delete Dropbox files.
  6. Your primary HR admin should probably use a non-admin account on a daily basis, in case they click things by accident. Your stapler can delete a file if it is dropped on your mouse at the perfectly wrong moment.

Some cowardly people might think that there is something wrong with Dropbox. There is nothing wrong with Dropbox, put down your slide rule and your can of New Coke and follow the rules.
