This system requires an IT Administrator and also a HR Manager. This can be the same person. For convenience check the “same as IT Administrator” box, if the person is the same, so that the HR Manage values will auto fill. Once completed please move on to the next step by clicking “next”.
Please read through all the information pages provided and click “next”. This will give you a more detailed information about the system in order to provide the correct information for step 3 of the wizard.
Step 3 allows you to create your first team. Once you type in the details, the graphical organisation chart on the right will auto fill.
Once your team is made, you can then make sub teams and assign managers to each. For convenience the employees in your domain can be selected from the drop down menu.
Employees can now be added to the teams provided. For convenience you can select an employee from the drop down menu. Please make sure all employees belong to your domain, as this is a systems requirement.
Once your teams are created and employees are assigned to each team, you can select whether the employees are allowed self service or not. Self service grants the employee's authorization to read or amend their profiles.
The month that the calendar start date can be selected from the drop down box. This will be the leave year start month for your company.
The working hours page can then be edited. Default values are in place, but can be amended. Once the working day end and start times for the morning and afternoon are provided, the system will automatically calculate the working hours.
The leave allowance can then be configured by selecting the leave type. Once the allowance days are input, the system will automatically calculate the allowance hours and vice versa.
Now your leave allowance has been configured you can assign it to an employment profile name
