We’re working on an amazing new feature that will let you link Turbine and Outlook or Google Calendar so you can see your employee time off calendar in the applications you use every day. It automatically updates if people’s plans change or they cancel their bookings. I’m very excited about this because we’ve just got it working on our staging server.

Holiday requests in Turbine…

Here’s a screen shot showing the four requests in Turbine.

We have more work to do on this feature and some testing. It may take a few more weeks to go live. We’re working on other great enhancements and new features including improvements to the in-app calendar view, booking time-off in the next holiday year, email preferences and other features. Watch this space!
