Hi @umair,

Interesting updates.

On Doc Permission, how will those from v7 who have set doctype permission upgrade to v8 be affected?


Hi all,

Great new features. We would want to see the following simple additions to complete the features in:

  1. Customer Feedback
    a) A connection between feedback results and employee appraisal

  2. Employee Loan Management
    a) Rules/constraints for borrowing e.g. an employee cannot borrow more than n% of net salary (or savings) or employee cannot have more than n outstanding loans
    b) Maximum loan-book for a company as a flat figure or a percentage of some predefined account e.g. previous years net earnings
    c) Some sort of employee savings scheme (the opposite of loans) where employees can save a fixed amount from their pay into an account (such as b above) and borrow from the same using rules in a above.

Otherwise the rest of the features are just wonderful (and long overdue perhaps). Thank you.

Thanks. Please create Github Issues for your feature suggestions.

Thanks for sharing this webinar @umair . Do we know date of release for version 8?

Beta version will be available for testing from 6th March for the community. Full release can be expected later this month.

that is great news to hear, will the loan management system will be integrated with payroll,will the payroll system automatically deduct the amount which the employee agrees to be deducted per month, if so it will be greater.thanks
