Complete customisation and flexibility

Workflow Builder is designed to be built exactly as you need it. With a library of different triggers, conditions and actions, you can create custom workflows for every area of the business. Whether that’s automatically approving leave within certain teams, or setting actions at a country template level, the possibilities really are endless.

edays has enabled us to follow processes more rigorously and a big benefit is the visibility of absence throughout the organisation. The reporting functionality is used to show clearly which departments need to focus on employee engagement and wellbeing when it comes to sickness absence. It has also allowed us to keep on top of the holiday bottleneck and ensure that we have a smoother flow of absence throughout the year which is much easier to manage.

edays is a great system that is easy to use and understand when it comes to logging sickness and booking holiday. It provides us with all the absence information we need through one screen and the system can offer expert medical advice to ill employees at the click of a button.

Mathias Grosse, HR Officer – McClures

We really struggled with countries using the old HRIS system, we had very little flexibility and limited functionality across HCM. With the combination of Cornerstone for booking and managing learning alongside the absence tracking and reporting offered through edays, we’ve found a solution that has saved endless hours of admin and increased employee engagement globally.

What is edays Workflow Builder?

edays Workflow Builder is designed to automate your processes, reduce admin and save time. By building and creating custom workflows, you can set a variety of triggers, conditions and actions to remove the need for manual work around your absence management practices.

How many workflows can I create?

edays Workflow Builder allows you to create up to 5 enabled workflows at any one time. This doesn’t limit the number you can build, and you can switch your workflows on and off as needed.

If you require more than 5 workflows, we have the Workflow Builder Pro, which unlocks unlimited workflows (and possibilities).

What is the pricing for Workflow Builder Pro?

If you want to upgrade to the Pro tier of Workflow Builder then this is just £2 per user annually. This is based on the number of users in your system, not the number of users you would like to be able to access Workflow Builder.

Who can access Workflow Builder?

Generally speaking, system admins will gain access to Workflow Builder. However, we have added an additional setting for Workflow Builder so that you can restrict or allow access as necessary. This also means that only those who you give permission to, will be able to upgrade to Workflow Builder Pro.
