Managing Staff Information

From Wageloch Wiki

At any given time you'll need to manage staff information in Wageloch, whether it's adding a new employee, terminating someone at the end of their employment or updating personal information.
This article will be discussing managing staff information, specifically the staff cards within Wageloch. We'll cover the view from Site level and the small variances between Central (payroll). At the bottom of the page we'll briefly touch on importing staff information from various payroll systems such as MYOB, Xero and Reckon to save time on data entry.

Onboarding is another method of managing staff information, especially for new employees.

Payroll Code Not all payroll systems utilize payroll codes as a staff identifier; more often than not it is an optional piece of information.

You're welcome to input this information manually from your payroll, though some of our import functions may pull this through automatically.

Xero one of the only systems that assist us in generating a payroll code for Wageloch, as it's a mandatory requirement for timesheet exports. No Xero payroll code? No timesheet data.

First Name Enter the employee's first name. This will need to exactly match the staff name in your payroll system. This includes spelling and capitalization.
Surname Enter the employee's surname. This will need to exactly match the staff name in your payroll system. This includes spelling and capitalization.
Mobile Enter the staff member's mobile number. Wageloch does not use this information for anything apart from SMS services which is disabled by default.
Email Address Enter the staff member's email address. This is used for general email communication, roster publishing and access to the Wageloch Mobile App
Date of Birth Enter the employee's date of birth. This can be used for reporting purposes, Pay Levels and a lovely Happy Birthday! notification when clocking in on their birthday!
