Any idea on how to handle hire date changes?
As we all know, information about any potential hire date change is vital (for all the teams involved in onboarding of a new employee - from those ensuring that equipment&facility things are sorted out in time, to the people involved in cultural and KT part of the onboarding).
From time to time, it happens that some start dates are moved. While this is rarely a problem when start date is pushed for later, it can create a lot of fuss if it's moved for sooner date if not caught via regular reminders.
Is there a way to have an immediate notification as soon as the hire date is changed?
Workaround that we've tested is: integrating Personio Start/End date calendar with Slack (with preference to update us on any sort of event change) but that doesn't seem to work (unlike for some other calendars like vacations where any update is caught and a message to the appropriate group is sent, for some reason doesn't seem to fire any event/notification when it comes to start/end dates).
Just to be clear: regular Reminders don't solve this because it may happen that due to date modifications one of the "gates" gets skipped (e.g. reminder to the person in charge to check the equipment status 3 weeks prior to the hire date won't be triggered if 3 weeks and 2 days before the start date someone updated start date by -5d meaning that person is now starting in 2 weeks and 4 days, and thereby reminder never goes out).
