iOS 16 updates: What's new in Zoho People's iOS app?

As part of iOS 16 updates, Apple has introduced Lock Screen Widget, a new feature that lets you add your desired widgets to your lock screen, Live Text that lets you grab text from live videos and images, and App intents to let users access their apps from multiple places and a lot more exciting features.

Following the iOS 16 updates, we at Zoho People have upgraded our iOS app accordingly to help you complete HR operations seamlessly and we are super excited to share the same with you. Check out what’s new in our iOS app:

  • Add HR widgets to your lock screen

Want to manage your HR operations from your lock screen without having to unlock your iPhone? What if we told you that it is now possible to do so with the latest Lock Screen Widgets that came with the iOS 16 updates? Yes, with the Lock Screen widgets functionality that we’ve incorporated into Zoho People’s iOS app, you can now add the desired HR widgets to your Lock Screen.

For instance, if you are a manager, you’ll have to manage several approvals from your reportees from time to time. In such cases, you can just add the pending approvals widget to your lock screen and take a glance at the pending approvals and manage them easily with a tap of a button right from your lock screen so that you don’t miss them.

Similarly, you can view your upcoming holiday list, view your birthday buddies, add time logs, apply for leave, and regularize your attendance.

  • Find key HR information from multiple places on your iPhone

Apple has introduced App Intents as part of the iOS 16 updates to help their users accomplish their everyday tasks quickly and conveniently. In Zoho People’s iOS app this means, you can ask Siri to fetch key HR information for you, or add them to your shortcuts app so that you can find the necessary information in a single tap or search for it in the Spotlight.

For instance, let’s assume that you are a Sales Manager showcasing your product at an event. One of your leads is asking if a particular functionality is available in your app, but you are unsure about it. In such a case, you can quickly search for and contact your colleague from the product development team through the Shortcuts app itself. For this, all you have to do is add the colleague search screen to your Shortcuts app.

Similarly, you can find your time logs, open tasks, pending jobs, and upcoming holidays through Siri, the Shortcuts app, and Spotlight.

  • Take notes seamlessly as part of your training

Taking notes as part of your training program is incredibly essential so that you can go back and refer to them when you start preparing for a test or when you start applying them to your job. With the live text feature introduced as part of our learning management system, taking notes doesn’t have to be daunting anymore! You can simply use the scan option present under the Notes tab in your courses, grab the text from any video, text, or presentation, and add it under the notes tab.
