Setup Roles

Empxtrack offers the functionality to setup multiple roles and groups. Users can use this functionality to define important roles in the organization, such as CEO (Chief Executive Officer), HOD (Head of Department), and HR Manager/ HR Admin. An employee may have more than one role in the organization. One role can be assigned to multiple employees.

To setup roles, you need to:

  1. Log into the system as Administrator. By default, this functionality is available only for Administrator.
  2. Go to the General Settings section and click Setup Roles link. The Setup Role page appears, as shown in Figure 1. The page displays the existing roles in the system.
  3. Click Add new role to setup a new role in the system.
    Figure 1

    A new window appears as shown in Figure 2.

  4. Select the preferred option for Type of role. Choose Relationship for the new relationship role. You will have to upload the employee relationships using the upload functionality. The person who would be assigned the role would be the manager column in the upload. The role identifier will be used in the relationship column.

    Select Implied radio button if implied roles are setup using the Setup group functionality. Each implied role shows up in the role chart and you can set a span by identifying different fields such as location, department, employee status etc. All employees that match the span will automatically have a relationship with the employee(s) identified as the group owner.
