We’ve spent the last couple of months re-designing and re-building the mobile interface of The Holiday Tracker. While you’ve always been able to login to The Holiday Tracker on a mobile device, we always felt the mobile interface could be better.
Today we’ve launched a brand-new design, which makes it clearer and easier to use, as well as bringing features and functionality from the desktop version that were previously missing on mobile:
You can now see your holiday entitlement bar and how much of your entitlement is remaining, as well as access the pop-up key illustrating what the colours on your calendar mean.
Managers can now check their team calendar before approving holiday, giving them a two-week window into their team’s planned absence. However, if the squares are too small on their mobile device, they can also switch to a one-week view.
Employees can request to cancel their holidays and managers can delete entries too – making the mobile experience much more useful than it previously was.
As an admin, you’ll still need to us the desktop version of the site to do the more complex tasks not suited to a small mobile screen, but you still have the option to “View Desktop Mode” from the top-right menu. This at least gives you the ability to zoom and pan around the site to make any urgent changes in a pinch.
Also available now are iPhone and Android apps for your mobile device.
