I suggest you ...

The Admin(s) should have option to get an email notification for requests and changes

Since we spend a lot of time on a desktop, we shouldn't be limited to the mobile app to see requests. There should be an option in settings.

    Hi Everyone,

    I just started a trial with Staff Hub with some of my team members. I had one of them requesting time off yesterday morning but I still have not got a notification on my desk top and/or e-mail. Just wondering if this issue has been already address? Do I need to have the app on my mobile as an Admin to be able to manage requests & approvals still?

    Looking forwards to getting some feedback.

    When a time off request is submitted I would like an email sent to a manager for approval. I would also like an email to be sent to the requester when the time off request is approved or denied

    Notifications via email to admin/manager and full functionality of mobile in Browser.

    I went live prematurely with StaffHub. The premise behind the program is wonderful. Unfortunately the limitations of the desktop web portal (combined with no W10 mobile app) have hampered full utilization. Even if the W10 mobile app doesn't come along, building full functionality into the desktop portal would alleviate many stresses.

    Would this require an exchange online mailbox or can it users have on premise mailboxes on exchange 2013

    Yes, all functionality through a web interface. We can't expect staff to subsidize the office by having to buy smartphones if they wouldn't otherwise have one.

    Similarly there are several employees that are still not comfortable using a mobile app. They should have full access to request time off and make changes through the web

    This is currently the only thing keeping me from going live with my team. To much is dependent on the mobile app.
