Adding, editing, and removing employees from within TimeForge is very easy to do. Employee accounts need to be created for any staff member who will be scheduling employees or who will be placed on the schedule themselves. Additionally, any staff member who will be running reports, clocking in, or receiving messages needs to have an employee account.
Employees are automatically synchronized from some Point of Sale systems that are set up to integrate with TimeForge.
Open the Employees tab and select Employees from the menu.
To add a new Employee, click the Add Employee button near the top of the page. You'll also notice links to Edit or Terminate individual employees already in the system.
If you're using the grid view instead of the list view, these links will appear in slightly different locations but should still be accessible from this screen. (To switch between grid and list view, use the buttons to the right of the search bar.)
When you create a new employee, you will immediately be able to begin entering their information, also known as their "Employee profile."
Each employee has a number of settings that can be configured or changed by managers and supervisors inside of TimeForge. These settings control the hours and shifts that an employee can work, the staff member's availability, and what positions the employee can perform.
To return to this form at any time, simply edit the employee from the employee list.
Other employee settings include pay rates (which are not required), skill levels (for ranking how talented a staff member may be), and employee login information, including the employee's email address.
See our guide on employee profiles for more information about getting the most out of these settings!
If you need to remove an employee from the system, click their Terminate link in the employee list. You'll receive a pop-up asking you whether the employee is eligible for rehire and, if not, why. Make your selections, then select Continue to complete the termination process.
Once complete, you'll be returned to the Employee List and the following confirmation message will be printed across the window:
"Employee <Name> has been terminated, and will no longer appear on your list of employees beginning tomorrow."
