Current performance discipline analytics allows a manager to observe an aggregate picture of employees’ efficiency and labor efforts
Features of Task Control for bpm’online
Task assignment to a certain employee or a group of persons/functional roles
If it is not important for a manager who exactly will do the assigned task, the System allows creating activity for a group of persons, or for a functional role. Thus, when choosing a specific department, the activity will be created automatically for all the department’s employees, and someone will undertake it, depending on the workload.
While creating the activity, you may assign a Controller, who will examine if the actual task result agrees with the expectation. After having performed the actions connected to the activity, the employee shall send it for being controlled (by clicking the relevant status at progress bar). The Controller shall examine the task performance for correctness. If the task has been performed correctly, the System would terminate it. Otherwise, the performer would receive a notification, and the task would return to the performer for rework.
The modernized calendar for an employee or a functional role
There is an opportunity to create separate calendars for employees and functional roles. You can create a timetable in a calendar showing business hours, lunch break, public holidays and shortened working days. Due to this function, the System doesn’t allow assigning a task to an employee for his/her non-working hours.
Hierarchical structure of activities setting
Due to the possibility of forming group tasks and setting of hierarchical structure of activities, you can decompose spatial blocks of work, thus reducing their performance time by attracting more resources. Also the System allows cancelling automatically child activities upon completion of the parent activity, and vice versa.
