- First/ Last Name : Required
- Access Code: Required - A unique 1 to 4-digit numeric code used by the employee to gain access to the system. If the Access Code entered is not unique, an error message that contains the name of the employee that has the access number is displayed. Via the Access Code label, the next available sequential code may be generated automatically. A magnetic or bar code card can be used to input the code in this field.
- Nickname: Required - The employee’s preferred Nickname, up to 15 alphanumeric characters. The Nickname will be printed on the Guest Check, Activity, Attendance, and Transaction Reports. If a Nickname is not entered the field defaults to the employee’s First Name followed by the first letter of the Last Name. Example: The Nickname for Sam Brown would be “Sam B.”
- Jobs: Select from the list of available jobs that this employee will be assigned. The first Job is required and must be assigned. All other Job assignments are optional. Jobs 1 through 6 must be assigned sequentially. Note: The current Job should never be changed while the employee is clocked in.
Save your changes and exit the Employee screen. Your new employee is added to your database.
