How do I add custom fields to the employee file?

You can add up to five custom fields to the employee file.

To do so you need to go to Administration > Company >Custom employee fields and enter a label for one or more of the fields.

Alongside these fields, there are a couple of tick boxes:

Required: Designates this field a mandatory field which must be completed

Self-service: If selected, this field will appear within self service for an employee to complete. This field will appear under Self-service > My personal details > Additional Information 

Please Note: You should be very cautious when changing or deleting labels as this can impact the integrity of the data stored.

    I added the Custom Fields as an Admin, but when accessing my user account separately, I cannot find the fields that were added. Does the Admin need to enable these fields somehow?

    The fields appear at the end of either adding or editing an employee as a seperate tab entitled Custom Fields

    I see these from the Admin account. How does a user see this information? Can the Employee view these custom fields somehow?

    Employee can see almost none of the content of the employee file by design - they only get to see their address, bank and next of kin information but everything else is only accessible via admin/HR/Manager level role
