The following article will provide you with instructions on how to create a new employee on WorkForce. The smart concept behind WorkForce is that you will be using one common employee data set for all your WorkForce modules. This means that adding an employee to the system will automatically show the employee in all your WorkForce modules.
It is possible to quickly set up an employee on WorkForce by inputting the most basic information, as outlined below. You can link the employee to the desired WorkForce modules at a later stage.
Please note that you must have Administrator permissions for WorkForce people. Please click here to learn more about how to provide access to users to WorkForce modules.
Step 1: Launch the WorkForce People module
Step 2: Click on Employees, then on Add from the left-hand side menu
Step 3: Enter the Employee Number, First Name, Last Name, Department, and Engagement Date as the initial setup process (You are free to enter the other fields, even though they are not required for the initial setup) and click on Create New Employee.
At this point, the new employee has been created on WorkForce, and his profile will promptly follow, allowing you to input all other data (even though they are not required as the initial setup). For more information on each employee field, please click here.
