Navigating the Updates Page

A walkthrough of the Sapling Updates page

Sapling's Updates page is a snapshot of all important information relevant for to admins and employees. To get to the Updates page, press the "Home" button in the lefthand corner of the top menu.

Here, there are two columns of key information displayed: 


On the left column, you’ll see various updates to keep you engaged with your team. 

  • A snapshot of your personal Time Off (if you elected to have access to this feature) 
  • All recent team member arrivals
  • Any team members that are Out of Office (if you have access to the PTO function) 
  • Other team member milestones (like birthdays and anniversaries)

On the right column, you’ll see a high level overview of your entire organization. What you see in this column depends on what permission level you have within Sapling. 

With standard Employee permission, you see all the left column fields, plus:

  • My Activities: any open tasks that you need to complete 
  • Platform Experience: your entire organization at a glance - this is called your People Directory
  • Company Links: a directory of helpful links (for ex: to your internal wiki, your company handbook, etc)

With Super Admin permission, you see all the same fields as the Employee view - plus two additional fields in the right column: 

  • Pending Hires: shows you how many new hires need to be onboarded 
  • Program Management: a high level overview of company movements and all open tasks 

*Note: the only thing on the Updates Page right hand column that you can edit is the Company Links. To learn how to customize this based on Departments, Locations, or Employee status - please see our Customer Links help article.
