What are App Settings in People Module Settings ?

App Settings is where Admins can configure the settings for employee profile, configure notification settings, create and manage custom fields and employee tags, configure employee's QR code information, and configure password settings for employees' login. Below, we will go through the settings of each portion that can be utilised and customised. 

Employee Profile Settings 

Employee Profile Settings is one of many settings available to customise what your employee views on their app. This particular section customises how an employee views their own profile on the altHR app, and what information in their profile may require approval from an admin to edit.

What are Employee Profile Requests

When an employee requests for an information change in their profile via the altHR app, admins receive a notification to approve or deny such requests. This of course depends on the Employee Profile Settings previously set. If Employee Profile Settings are set such that employee profile information is editable and requires admin approval, admins will receive a notification for the request. 

Example: When an employee edits their marital status on the app, a notification is sent to the admin for approval. The admin can then approve, which will automatically change the employee’s information on the admin dashboard and app, or deny the change.

To view, approve or reject employee’s request to edit profile:

1. On your admin dashboard, head to the left panel.

2. Click People > Settings.

3. Click on the Profile Requests tabYou will be able to view all employee requests for profile edit here.

4. On the right of the section, click View.

5. Click Approve or Reject
