BambooHR is online HR software for small and medium-sized businesses that have outgrown spreadsheets. We automate many of the most tedious HR functions and free you up to do meaningful work. The BambooHR app lets you take some of those most important functions with you, and makes your most common tasks in BambooHR simple and fast.
* In order to do anything with the BambooHR app you will need a current BambooHR account. Find out more and start a free trial at BambooHR.com.
* The app fully supports single sign-on (SAML) to login
Your Company Directory, Everywhere You Go
Your company’s phone numbers, emails, photos, titles—your whole company directory goes wherever you do.
* See colleague’s information and call, email, or message them with a tap
* Quickly add someone’s info to your phone’s contacts
Plan and Manage Time Off
Planning a trip? Request time off when you’re out and about. Leave requests can be submitted in the app, and if you’re an approver, you can approve them there as well.
* See who’s out of the office today and on any future date
* See current and calculate your future time off balances
* Submit, view, edit, and comment on your time off requests
* Approve and deny time off requests
* Push notifications keep you in the loop on the status of your requests
And don’t worry, TouchID and passcode protection will help keep your information secure.
Today marks another red letter day in our relentless pursuit to get more into the app to help you be more effective and productive in Bamboo while away from your big computer machine. The big new thing? Documents! If you got docs, you got ‘em in the app now, too.
That’s right, you can now get to the Documents tab on your profile (“My Info”) to see, download, or share whatever you have there (according to existing permissions, of course). As part of this update, we adjusted how your employee tabs work, so they all show by default instead of being hidden under a dropdown. Turns out, things are easier to find when you can see them. Who knew?
This is just one more step toward getting more and more in there. Thanks for hanging with us. Should you have any feedback (or trouble), don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll get back to you lickety-split.
Ratings and Reviews
Ok but limited
Nice look and feel. I can request PTO and look at all people off in the company. What I can’t do is fill out my time card. If the function is there it is so well hidden that effectively it is not there. That is a far more important function to me than seeing If a guy from sales (that I never interact with) took the day off! Bad functional prioritization!
Alerts- need to show up on your phone for the app
When my boss sends me an update- something to review- something to share- nothing shows up in the app. I have to check the desktop site or go to my email for a notification. It would help if when something was sent out the app put out an alert!
Please add announcements to the app!
Many of our employees use a smart phone only and use the app more consistently than logging into bamboo on a computer. Can you please add announcements to the app?
This would be extremely helpful for getting messages out to our employees who work in different locations.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
