As you know we are currently working on the new design of Exact Synergy Enterprise and in the product update 245 we have added additional self-service functionalities: medical leave and expense claim. When you use one of these new features you will be guided through a wizard, as we also offer at the personal time off page. In this blog I would like to zoom in on how you can easily register your medical leave.
There are many ways to navigate to the medical leave page. The fastest ways are:
1. the hyperlink medical leave in the self-service part of the personal menu;
2. the medical leave button in the self-service widget on the homepage.
When you start the medical leave page, you will directly see a list of previous requests grouped by ‘Current’, ‘Upcoming’ and ‘In the past’. The ‘Current’ and ‘Upcoming’ sections are always visible so that you have an overview of which current and future requests have been registered. The requests in the ‘In the past’ section are hidden, but you can easily open this section by clicking somewhere in the bar.
Register a new medical leave request is easy and requires only few mouse clicks. Just click at the ‘+ Register medical leave’ button and from there you will be guided through a wizard. In product update 245 we support six medical leave types:
1. Sick leave
2. Visit doctor
3. Visit dentist
4. Other specialist
5. Care leave
6. Emergency leave
Each type has its own page with predefined questions. The content is based on the information that the HR department needs to meet the regulations. In some cases we already prefilled some fields. For instance, if you register a sick leave we have prefilled the current date, the telephone number where the company can reach you and the address you’ll be staying. It is possible to prefill some fields only if the information is already available in Synergy. As a result you save a lot of time to fill in the form.
At the settings page the medical leave request types can be changed into a different request type by a person who has administrator rights.
