HR ticketing is a great new feature which will allow your company users to send queries to HR from within the Natural HR system.
How will HR ticketing help my business?
- A new open channel for HR queries - HR ticketing gives you a new avenue when it comes to interacting with your employees and answering any questions that they might have for your HR department.
- Keep an archived record of all enquiries - All tickets can be saved and archived once they are resolved. This ensures that there is always a saved record for future reference - meaning that you never have to lose another hand-written note again!
- Email notifications of new tickets & updates - When a new ticket request is submitted, HR will receive an email to let them know that an enquiry has been received. Likewise, once the ticket has been updated, the user who has submitted the enquiry will receive an email letting them know that there has been a response.
