Configure HRIS Fields

The configure HRIS fields functionality allows you to add, remove, and rename fields as desired to customize Empxtrack system according to your specific requirements.

Before you configure HRIS fields, you must:

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

To Configure HRIS fields, you need to:

  1. Log into the system as an HR Manager/ HR Admin.
  2. Go to Settings >> Employee Records Settings >> Configure HRIS Fields.

    The  Configure HRIS fields page appears, as shown in Figure 1.

    The page displays Employee Data variable type under Employee field types column and a list of variables for Employee Data variable type. Each variable in the list of variables can be customized according to the specific requirements of your company.

    The variable type list displays two types of variables, Active and Inactive, with the number of variables each of them have. The Active variables are the selected variables for the variable type Employee Data. These variables will be used capturing/ displaying employee data. The Inactive variables are the variables that are not used by the system.
