Configure HRIS Fields

Configuration of HRIS fields allows addition, removal and renaming of fields. This helps in customizing Empxtrack system to meet company requirements.

Before configuring HRIS fields, you must:

  • Identify fields that are not required in the system
  • Identify fields where label changes are required
  • Identify additional fields that may be required to capture employee data

Note: Configuration of HRIS fields functionality is only available in paid versions of Empxtrack.

To configure HRIS fields, you need to:

  1. Log into the system as an HR Manager/ Admin.
  2. Go to Settings page. Scroll down to Employee Records Settings section and click Configure HRIS fields.

This page allows you to update labels, setup visibility rules, formats, data types and validation rules for employee data fields fields for different sections of the employee database. You can configure the existing fields and add new fields as per your specific requirements.The variable type list displays two types of variables, Active and Inactive (see Figure 2), with the number of variables each of them have.
