What is BambooHR®?
BambooHR® is a fantastic HR tool for small and medium businesses. It can be used to collect, maintain, and analyse your people data, improve how you hire talent, onboard new employees, manage compensation, and develop your company culture.
Alongside many of our own clients, we are also an avid customer of the BambooHR® product. A critical feature for us is leave management. When somebody wants to go off backpacking in the mountains, they raise a time off request which then goes through an approval process according to the policies that you define!
How does BambooHR Integration for Jira work?
BambooHR Integration for Jira gives you an easy way to manage employee absences by sync’ing vacations from BambooHR® into Jira. Employee time-off requests in BambooHR® are automatically recorded in Jira, giving you the ability to consider employee time-off when scheduling work.
See absence management in context
BambooHR Integration for Jira provides you with up-to-date employee absence information from BambooHR®. You can then work with this information in Jira to make more informed project scheduling decisions and transform your project planning capability.
Easy to configure
The app gives you the ability to configure time-off request types to suit the needs of your team. This means you only have to synchronize the request types that are relevant to your work and you can choose to keep certain absence request types confidential.
The synchronization schedule is configurable with BambooHR Integration for Jira so, you can choose the frequency of updates that best suits the needs of your team, ensuring absence information is there when you need it.
BambooHR Integration for Jira provides powerful integrations with business-critical resource planning tools for a seamless project management solution. These integrations include leading resource planning tools like Tempo Planner and BigPicture, so you can make robust scheduling decisions with the tools you’re already using.
