Masquerade Functionality

The masquerade functionality, just as the name suggests, allows you to disguise as another employee and perform all the tasks that the employee can perform with the permissions as assigned to him/ her.

As an HR manager, you may need to log into employee’s account to resolve their problems. Masquerade functionality allows you to resolve employees’ problem with the Empxtrack system by logging into their accounts without the hassle of knowing their passwords and without logging out from your own account.

When you masquerade as an employee, you log into employee’s account without typing the employee’s user name and password on his / her login page.

To masquerade as an employee, you need to

1.  Log into the system as HR Manager.
2.  Go to Settings >>Employee management >>Masquerade as an employee. The Masquerade as an employee page appears, as shown in Figure 1.
3.  Select Employee Name or Employee Number from By dropdown,
4.  Type the name or the employee number of employee in the text field appearing next to By dropdown after and then click Go.

The employee is selected. Alternatively, click on the Advanced Search icon to search and select the employee.
