Employee teams

Overview

Employee teams can be set up by client admin or manager users for their own in-house employee teams and by service providers for their own employee teams. Once a team is established and remits allocated to team members or to the team as a whole, works enquiries and orders can be issued for individual team members or for the team in general.

Orders that have been issued to a team can be re-assigned to an individual operative as required.

Helpdesk issues can also be assigned to a team rather than to an individual, provided that the 'shared access' checkbox is ticked on the relevant team record. This allows any member of the team to assume control of any open Helpdesk issue.

Setting up internal teams (client / employer)

Client admin users, Providers and Managers with Qualifications access can set up teams for their internal workforce. Employee teams are set up from the Client's home page, the service Provider's home page or the Manager's home page. Start by clicking the Home button on the start screen.

NOTE: If your home page setup does not include the main Home button you can also use the mini home button that is visible on all screens.

Go to Client home

Click the Client button to confirm your choice or if you are a Manager click the Manager option.

NOTE: Service Providers have similar options. Managers with access to employee records can similarly access the employee teams on their manager home.
