With the Letter Request feature:
The HR manager will now be able to set up custom letter templates based on the company requirements.
The HR manager can keep track of all employee letter requests and approve or deny the employee letter request as per needs.
Employees will now be able to request common HR letters, view the status of the request, and download the letter once approved.
What is our goal?
Reduce back and forth communication for letter requests.
Eliminate time spent on data fields when creating new letters.
