Navigating Through the Employee Record

This section will provide you with some tips & tricks to help you navigate through the employee record.

Common Buttons & Icons

Here is a short list of some of the button icons you will see within the employee record:

plus sign + signs are typically seen in the upper right corner of a section. This icon allows you to add something (for example, add a phone/email)
message bubbleThis icon allows you to log a message. 
pencilThe pencil icon allows you to edit information and is typically located in the upper right of a section (for example, interest codes) 
X iconThe X icon allows you to remove something. While we don't allow removal of employee records (you can deactivate them but not remove), there is select information on the employee's record that can be removed (for example, assignment restrictions).  

Navigation Tree

Located along the left side of the employee record is the Navigation Tree. This will show you where on the employee record you are. Each item on the tree will navigate you to a different section of the employee record with different sets of information. Below is a brief overview of some of the different pages:

  • Visifile 
    • The visifile is a front page overview of the employee record. This section is often referred to as the "communication hub" of the employee record because it is home to contact information, messages, assignment information, and interest codes. 
  • Details 
    • The details page contains a lot of important information about the employee including address, SSN, and washed status. When you select this option, it opens up a drop down of additional sub detail pages that contain different sets of information such as education, job history, interview questionnaire, etc. 
  • Documents 
    • This area allows you to view, upload, and save any documents related to this employee. This is a great way to electronically file important paperwork including I-9s and W-4s. 
  • Pay History 
    • This section shows past paychecks and pay information on the employee record. Not every user will be able to access this section
  • Pay Setup 
    • This section contains taxes, direct deposit, and garnishment information for the employee. This is typically accessible by HR Reps or Payroll Clerks.

Employee Avatar

Located in the upper left corner of the database, the Avatar area displays a wealth of information about the employee record currently open in TempWorks Enterprise. 

The name of the employee will be displayed along with their address, ID number, and SSN. 

*Note* Depending on the preferences of your company, the SSN may display the full SSN or only the last four digits of their SSN. 

The main (1.) Employee Avatar icon displayed can be selected at the time a new employee is entered into TempWorks Enterprise: 

To change the Avatar after initial creation of the employee record, right click the icon 

Resetting the Avatar icon will change it to the universal symbol for Employee:  

*Note* because each company has different policies about using Avatar icons, please consult your company before using Avatar icons.

Within the Avatar area there is a row of symbols which depict various aspects of the employee currently viewed:
