  1. Ability to print a timesheet summary from ESS

    Offer the ability to print a timesheet summary from ESS. Our goal is to be able to discontinue paper timesheets completely but we still have some employees who are not entering their own time in ESS. Instead, their supervisor enters their time in ESS so we would like the employee to be able to sign a printed copy of the time that was entered in ESS

  2. Ability to see calendar by Dept as a whole, not just by employee

    With supervisor login it would be nice to see a calendar for the Dept as a whole, to indicate vacation time has been requested on specified dates. Then allow with a click on that date to see who has already requested vacation time off. This will allow supervisor to be more efficient in allowing time off, opposed to clicking the calendar for each employee within a dept before being able to allow vacation time off. This will prevent allowing multiple employees off at the same time and creating a shortage of staff later.

  3. Automatic Overtime Calculation ESS Time Sheets

    Allow for work rules to be programmed so that overtime can be automatically calculated when an employee enters time in ESS time sheets instead of employee selecting between regular and overtime pay codes.

  4. In ESS we need to have a way for employees to request time off that does not come from a time bank

    We are trying to go paperless, so we need a means for employees to request to attend seminars or meetings outside of the office

  7. Give the employer the ability to put links on ESS

    It would be useful for the employees to be able to access information on health and other benefits through ESS.

  8. Let us set different parameters for each dept or employee class

    Some departments may not want to allow employees to request time off through ESS, but other departments want to use that feature. Right now we have to have all of the employees set the same.

  9. Include a "last updated" date on ESS Leave Time

    The balances in the Leave Balances tab in ESS are only accurate up to the last batch update. Could you put the date of the last update on the screen?

  10. Allow employer to set required notice time for requesting time off

    As an example, some departments require 48 hour notice for vacation time or other leave time. We should be able to restrict employees from requesting through ESS on short notice. And it would be great if this could be done by department or contract.

  11. Pension Information Tab on ESS

    We recently implemented and one suggestion I had while training with John Clifford was to put a tab on ESS for an Employees Pension Information.

    Coincidentally, the same time we had training, the State of NJ Division of Pension and Benefits announced that they would no longer be providing paper pension benefit statements, and with everything now being more and more on MBOS, a good amount of our employees needed to register online for their pension accounts.

    One downside was that no one knew their pension number, which is required for account sign-up.

    We ultimately did a mail merged MS…
