Not being able to locate important HR resources can cause a multitude of issues, for example, 

  • confusion for new hires
  • an overload of questions for HR
  • a lack of engagement

Now you can streamline your communication process with a quick links section where you can pin resources for your employees to quickly and easily access from their homepage. Here’s how!

As a full-access admin or an employee who has been granted company access to create/manage quick links, you will see 2 new things:

To get started, either click “View” or “Add Quick Links”.

You will be directed to the new Quick Links landing page.

After choosing one, you can see who will be able to view the link. 

“Team members with an active & complete document on their employee profile will see the link on their homepage.” 

There’s nothing left to do but to save!

You can choose for the link to be available to All Active Team Members or Specific Team Members.

By choosing Specific Team Members, you can decide who can view the link based on status, employment type, or work groups! Once you're ready, simply hit save!

By choosing "Active", this ensures that as you continue to hire new team members, they will automatically see the links they’re meant to view on their homepage.

Now that you have a couple of links added, you can drag and drop to control the order they are visible.

You can also choose to create link groups. They will appear in the widget with a header.

The only thing left to do is to save the link and publish your changes!

Now, team members with links to view will see a new widget on their homepage.

There is no maximum to the number of links you can add to the widget!
