Employee Directory Setup Guide

Setting up the Employee Directory is quick and easy. All you need to do is:

  • Determine if you want to display employee photos. If you opt out of displaying their photos, the employee’s initials display.

  • Decide whether you’d like to create new employees on the Employee Directory.

  • Determine Which Managers and Regular Users should have access to the Employee Directory and be able to add new employees based on User Group and Add permissions.

  • Confirm which Role you’d like to use for role permissions granting employee access.

Before starting the setup, you’ll want to ensure the right people can view your employees’ SIN. Employee’s SIN is displayed on the Employee Summary and can be added to new employees.
