In order to empower employees to communicate status Information through the OrangeHRM system, they can share relevant status details with their co-workers when they are working from home. This might be simply stating their working hours or contact details. To remove potential bottleneck by HR and Supervisors in communicating changing information, OrangeHRM can help you add “My Status” information for each employee which would then be visible to all via the Corporate Directory. Refer to the following steps:
- Create a custom field as "My Status"
- Enable the created custom field through "Directory Configuration"
- Request the employee to add the "My Status" in their profile
