PERMISSIONS

Your role needs to have an Assign to organization unit permission under Administration > Role Permissions > Employees to be able to assign employees to organization units.

Step 4: Add an employee name

Next, fill in the First name and Last name fields.

Step 5: Select a company

Assign the employee to a company using the list of available companies.

ℹ️

NOTE

If your environment is converted to an enterprise structure, the list of companies is filtered based on the selection of an organization unit done in Step 3 of this guide.

Step 6: Add an employee number

Further on, you have the employee number, which is a unique identification number assigned to each employee. There are two methods for specifying employee numbers:

  • Generated automatically
  • Entered manually

Which method is applicable for a given employee, depends on the Employee Number Policy setting of the employee's company configured in company details.

Step 7: Select a pay group

Here, you choose whether the employee is paid on an hourly basis or through a monthly salary.

Step 8 (optional): Add a profile picture

There’s also the profile picture field, which is optional. So, you can create an employee without adding a profile pic, but you won’t be able to activate the employee profile without a profile pic.

Step 9: Finalize the setup

When you’re done, select the Create Employee button at the top to create the employee entry. As soon as the employee is created, you’ll be taken to the employee’s newly created profile, where you’ll see some additional details under Profile Info.

NOTE

By default, the employee profile has a Draft status. You’ll be able to activate it as soon as you fill in all the required fields and add a profile picture. If the requried fields and profile picture are set prior to selecting the Create Employee button, the status will change to Active automatically upon creating the profile.
