Managing your organisations open beta features via the HR platform

Employment Hero will occasionally release a new feature into open beta. What this release into open beta means is our product team has a workable new feature, however it needs some fine tuning before it becomes part of the standard product offering of the HR platform. You can opt into these open beta features, however, you need to know that:

  • We have not included these Open beta features in our standard HR product offering, i.e. they are not polished or completed.
  • Customers join at their own discretion, i.e. it may not solve all your problems as it is an open beta feature.
  • If there are limitations and/or issues of an open beta feature, then Employment Hero will not address them as urgently as a standard product offering from the HR platform.


Because open beta features are constantly being revised, they may look different and/or have different functionality when included into our standard HR product offering. Please note that we appreciate any feedback regarding open beta features, but also understand that if you encounter any bugs, we do not prioritise these as normal defects submitted to support.
