    Both payroll & HR are very date-driven functions. What do you use to track dates/deadlines? Outlook calendar reminders? Post-it notes? Software or an app?

    Share your system & how well it works (or doesn’t) for you!

    I use outlook calendar reminders that are also synced to my personal phone to help me when booking medical appointments or selecting vacation days.

    Hey Stacey! Are you using a payroll or HCM solution today with any automated workflows? I know our Payroll Manager uses a combination of Outlook and automation to make sure nothing gets missed. This includes everything from processing payroll to onboarding new hires.

    Automation can take care of a lot, but there’s always data to double-check, especially on things like timesheets and deductions. That’s where blocking time off/setting up reminders in the calendar is helpful.

    We use Outlook for the majority of our reminders. We also have an Excel database that has built in triggers for specific functions (notifying of staff probationary period ending, or the end of a contract). Our current payroll system does not have that functionality but when we bring on a new system (hopefully for 2024), I am hoping that some of those triggers can be built into it.

    I use Outlook calendar to track all my appointments and deadlines. It works well for me.

    I use Outlook but I love to be old school as well to have a to do list in my desk

    Outlook and I future date emails to myself all the time. And still old school with my daily paper to do list

    I use Outlook, but my brain is very good at reminding me of any deadlines.
