Employee Directory


Definition

The Employee Directory lists everyone working for the company: internal employees as well as the employees of external service providers and subcontractors. It is used to specify administrative information and display the employee's main Product name - ev itsm.png information, e.g. list of incidents, requests or problems.

EndDefinition
  • Employees can modify certain personal information by accessing their own form in the user information zone.
  • User profiles and domains determine the Product name - ev itsm.png menus, modules and data each user is authorized to access.
  • A particular employee type, evie, provides you to send notifications during workflows / business rules steps. Users can display them via the notification counter Notification icon - Notifications.png in the notification bar. Open url.png See the procedure.

Notes

  • The directory can be updated manually or automatically using an employee file.
  • You can associate a photo with each employee manually, or automatically using an integration model based on the Photo Integration for Employees connector. Open url.png See the description.
  • You can associate an employee with a supplier or service provider in the Company field of the Employee form. The employee will then appear in the Contacts tab of the Supplier form.
  • The administrator shall manage profiles and domains each user is authorized to access via the Employees access management.

Best Practice big icon.pngBest Practice

  • Enter the employee number to identify each employee in a unique way because certain employees may have the same surname and first name. This information is used when integrating the employee file.
  • When employees leave the company, you should run the Departure wizard to reassign the equipment that was previously assigned to them.
  • If you intend to complete Employee forms manually, you should first complete the other directories in the following order: Locations, Departments, Suppliers/Groups.

Caution

  • When you delete a form, the action is final. If you want to keep the form without making it available in Product name - ev itsm.png, you can archive it by entering the departure date of the employee. You can then view it using the Archived filter.
