Updating my company employment settings via the HR platform

The Employment Settings section allows you to customise your employment settings to suit your business needs. You can, for example, edit settings such as what timesheet type you use in your organisation, whether you have two-level leave approval enabled, or whether to make two-factor authentication mandatory for all your employees.

Helpful Hint

We do not support Daily Hours on Weekly timesheets option on the Swag app.


HR Plan:   Premium   Platinum
  User Access: Employee   Manager     Admin

  This is the default access level per user and whether they have  view,  edit and  delete access, excluding any changes made via our Custom Security feature.

Editing data

Edit your employment settings
  1. Click the   Settings menu.
  2. Click the Company Settings submenu.
  3. Click the Employment Settings button.
  4. Complete the following fields:
    • Setup mode.

    Helpful Hint

    Setup mode allows you to block all outgoing emails from the platform. However, it only blocks emails at the time they trigger, not at the time they would be sent.

    For example, if an action in the HR platform undertaken at 3:00pm triggers an email to go out. The email settings enabled means it will send this message at 7:00pm, and if you switch setup mode on at 5:00pm, this email will go into a queue to send once you switch setup mode off. However, if you were to turn setup mode on at 2:00pm, then the trigger never happened and no email will go out once you turn setup mode off.

    During setup mode, we will only send an email if a user changes their account email, in which case we will send a verification email to the account holder.

    • Two level leave approval.
    • Timesheet entry.

    Helpful Hint

    Employment Hero provides three timesheet types:

    • Start and End Time Based on Daily Entries.
    • Daily Hours Based on Daily Entries.
    • Daily Hours Based on Weekly Entries.
    • Show staff details.
    • Enforce two factor authentication
    • Typical work day.
    • HR Manager emails.

    Helpful Hint

    Employment Hero adds the email provided to the invitation email and will provide a new employee with a point of contact for any issues regarding the platform. You can enter multiple HR manager emails by using a comma to separate them.

    • Work safe authority.

    Helpful Hint

    Work-safe authorities can review all safety incident reports.
