What's New in People First?

We update People First every two weeks. See the last three months of new features.


Trend Cards

Once you have accessed the Trends data from the Trends Card you can now change the date range without having to return to the organisation structure.

Easier Processing

To make HR processing even easier we’ve added ‘Key Actions’ in the job information section, which will help you to process the next step easily.


A currency drop down has been added to the Salary screen to enable you to record salaries paid in different currencies. This can be inherited through the structure along with salary and controls the number of decimal places used. It has also been added on the Trends Report alongside salary information.

Clocking Data

A new export has been added to allow all clocking data to be exported from People First. This will allow you to process or analyse the data.


A blank Passport number can now be recorded in People First, which allows a customer to record that a person has a valid passport without having to record the actual number.


The course shipped course categories can now be edited or made inactive if you do not want to include them.


Enhanced import functionality now allows competencies, memberships and qualifications to be bulk updated at job level. Please note you will see a warning message explaining that the new information will override existing data if you choose this option.


When scheduling a recurring check-in, it will now feature in the calendars of all participants for a 12-month period.


Employees are now able to specify that a goal is ‘Private’ and these can only be seen by the employee, their manager and HR Administrators.


US enhancements

For customers in the US we have made a couple of changes within People First, including making a person’s ‘Title’ non-mandatory, ‘Car Registration number’ is now ‘Licence plate’, ‘Legal Gender’ (for US) becomes ‘Sex’ in the UK and the ‘Salary card’ has been renamed to ‘Compensation’.

Social feed

For an enhanced experience, users can now toggle between a single or three column view on the social feed. It will remember your preference even when you log out or navigate to other pages. We’ve also improved the speed of the social feed.

Job history

We’ve made some enhancements to the job history display, aligning start and end dates so that it’s easier to see when things have changed.

Custom cards

Do you need to file information within custom cards? You now have the ability to extract data from custom cards into files; you can also limit the extraction of data to records created in a specified time-period.

Workforce management

You can now view time worked metrics on an individual’s overview page, broken down by week, month and year. You can also view details of time worked for a specific day. You also have the ability via the desktop to edit and delete time and the appropriate user can add historical data (more than three months old).

Alliance agreement check-ins

Alliance agreement check-ins have now been introduced to the platform, with system-generated talking points to help managers and employees have better conversations. These can be scheduled and started from the alliance video model and the employee has the ability to do this them self. In addition, now both parties involved in the check-in will have the ability to sign the alliance agreement during the alliance check-in and a record of them signing or not signing will be added to their profile. This will be removed if the alliance agreement is de-activated.

Social communities

It is easier than ever to navigate to, and find new communities as we have broken them down into the two categories – ‘Following’ and ‘Not Following’, plus users can find what they are looking for quicker with the ability to search within each.


Details around a job offer changed? No need to worry as you now have the ability to change the job or proposed start date on an offer package. Currency will also now display on both the campaign screen and the job board.

People trends

We’ve made it easier to get the information you need from your analytics reports and keep on top of people trends within your company. Job and personal reference numbers are now included across different analytics reports and the results can be sorted and exportable to CSV. In addition, you can look at trends in the upcoming month and next three months.


Personalise the notifications that matter. Now users can customise which recipients receive notifications when there has been a change in job title or department.


Company news

In order to streamline and enhance the user experience, from now on only Social Media Officers are able to post into company news.


You are now able to customise the recipients for the notifications of new starters, leavers and change of departments. 


You can now report and drill down further into the data for your employee transfers and promotions, giving you a more comparable view of your workforce. In addition,  photos of employees will now appear on the trends cards report making the information more personalised.

Custom cards

Be more flexible with your employee and company information by importing and exporting your custom pages and custom cards.
