We recommend the advanced plan to all clients with 10-25 users as we believe your experience will be optimized for daily operations.
What are the main capabilities that make the advanced plan perfect for the WHO?
User and manager management:
Smart groups: In a nutshell, smart groups help you automate your work by organizing your team members based on position, department and more. Smart groups are a great way to organize your employees so that you send the relevant content to the relevant groups to avoid noise in irrelevant channels. You can also assign different features to the correct users and run your team with ease.
Manager permission: Decide what your admin sees on their dashboard, such as users, categories or specific content.
Archiving users: While deleting a user deletes all records and actions this user performed in the app, archiving saves these records for admins to re-enter for review at any time they wish. In addition, once you delete a user, there is no possibility to restore the user. If you wish to add this user again then you must add him/her from scratch. On the contrary, once archiving a user, the admin can always restore this user without the need to re-invite them to the app.
Attach files to your users' custom fields: E.g. Attach a work contract to each user's profile, add qualifications and certificates to selected users.

Time clock :
Multiple time clocks: create separate time clocks for different teams and departments, helping you run your teams ( up to 3)
Geo fence: Geofence is an advanced capability that allows you to create a geographic "fence" around a site or an address and have it associated with a job. In other words, to clock into that job, users must be within that specific fence or the job will not appear for them to clock into. This will save the owner time and money by eliminating buddy punching and time theft as your employees can’t clock in off site.
Shift attachments: Shift attachments are additional pieces of information that users are asked to add to their shift time. These could be the equipment that was used, mileage covered, who was the manager on the work-site, image and file uploads, and more.
Auto breaks: Automatically deduct X amount of minutes after a certain amount of hours worked. Once activated, unpaid break time will be deducted from the daily total hours for each employee according to your time clock breaks settings.
New customization options: This allows you to add and remove different functionalities in order to meet your organization’s needs. By toggling different switches on or off, you can affect the Time Clock's interface and functionality, so it's easy to use and intuitive for your users with any setup you choose.
Set your payroll period and automated reminders: Easily define your payroll period, which will be adjusted accordingly, and set up automated reminders for your employees to go over their timesheets and for managers to approve any pending changes that employees have requested.
Advanced filters: see who’s scheduled for a shift or job now or today and is/isn’t clocked in.

Automated reminders: tired of reminding users to submit their Forms? Send daily, weekly, or monthly automated reminders to users to make sure they submit their Form.
Manager fields: With Manager Fields, you can manage the full Form process by providing feedback to your employees after each submission.For example, if someone made a stock order, you update the delivery status (approved, delivered, declined), CC the relevant personnel, mark the expected delivery date and even send notes back to the user! That way the complete Form process is managed from end to end and everyone is kept in the loop.
Bulk actions: With bulk Form actions, you can now easily download Form entries as multiple PDF's or as one single PDF, download just the Form related attachments, or delete multiple Form entries.
Real-time Form comments board: now, you can take this collaboration to new heights with a comments board, dedicated to each entry. Once an entry has been made, the shared recipients for that entry that have access to Connecteam will be able to add comments in real-time, share files, images, and more!
