While the core functionality provided within People Inc. is used by most clients, there are requirements that are more specialist. Functionality designed to help with these specialist requirements is non included as standard within the system, it is available as a downloadable upgrade. The Features Browser is used to add this additional functionality. It enables user to select and install features from an online library.



It is possible to add functionality to the People Inc. system in a number of different ways. Users can add custom functionality using the Screen Designer (and the Report Writer), and new features are provided via Wizards and Plug-ins (available as downloads from the Resources area of this website).

At the beginning of 2018 we launched a plug-in that enables users to browse, download and install report templates. This made the online library of People Inc. report templates much more accessible. Prior to this, it took some effort to download and install reports; the Report Browser plug-in meant it took just the click of the mouse.


Features Browser plug-in

To complement the Report Browser, the new People Inc. Features Browser is a plug-in that enables users to download and install additional screen-based features.

In the same way that the Report Browser made adding report templates a simple thing to do, the Features Browser enable users to add screens at the click of the mouse (until now, screens and screen elements have had to be added manually one-by-one). So new screen can now be added to People Inc. more quickly than ever.


A Library of New Screens

Around 40 downloadable screen definitions are currently available for use with the Features Browser. These include:

  • The Action List configuration screen: a screen to enable users to set 'triggers' to generate reminders on dates recorded in system screens.
  • The Statistics Screen: a screen that provides a monthly summary of headcount and turnover, time lost to absence, equal opportunities information, etc.
  • The Payroll Change Log screen: a screen that consolidates all payroll-related changes so that they can be extracted and used in the payroll.
  • The Service History screen: a screen enabling users to manage and schedule vehicle servicing while keeping a full history per vehicle.
  • The Training Registration feature, A screen that is availble to ESS users and administrators, used to register and maintain employee training records.
  • The Attached Pay-Slips ESS screen: a screen used to record and display copies of employee payslips so that they are accessible to employees via the ESS.

As part of our on-going investment in the People Inc. system, further screens and features will be made available for this plug-in; users will be able to browse these and add them to their system free-of-charge.
