Release Notes March

We are always working on improving Alloc8 and this month we released a number of new features and improvements to Alloc8. This included many new features that we know will provide our customers with improved visibility, compliance and workflow efficiencies. 

What’s New?

Form Builder (Custom Forms)


You can now create custom forms and checklists using our new drag and drop form builder and attach to jobs, as well as the option to attach to all Branch or Company jobs, or just the ones you choose to. Forms can be made specific to workers, vehicles and assets – and can include conditional fields to capture the exact information you need to save hours in chasing up paperwork.

Paperwork Regeneration

Alloc8 Paperwork-regeneration

You now have complete control over what is included or excluded in the paperwork sent to your customers, even after the Timesheet or Invoice has been completed for a job. The Paperwork Regeneration feature means you can include or exclude an attachment or form at a branch/company/job level, then easily regenerate paperwork for all of those jobs in just a few clicks.

What's Improved?

Awards and Classifications

Alloc8 Award Classifications

We have made improvements to how Awards and Classifications work in Alloc8 to minimise payroll errors and improve the experience for our users. The 'Award Rule Hierarchy' takes into account Shift, Project, Company and Branch awards, and with added visibility you will see the exact classification and award to each shift – as well as easily make changes on the Resource Allocation or Timesheet screen. Learn more here >
