HR Define Position Status (Employer Tab)View the next screen based on the program's menu orderView the previous screen based on the program's menu order

The following step is optional - This step is not required to perform the payroll procedure. If the program's default HR statuses' suit your needs, or if you do not plan to use the HR feature, then you can skip this screen.

This screen is used to define HR position Status indicators. They are used to represent an employee's status for their assigned position. For example, the first two statuses that you create will be the most common: Full Time and Part Time. But you you may also wish to create other less-common status indicators such as "Acting" or "Temporary", that can be used in cases where an employee is working in a certain job temporarily and will relinquish the position at a future date.

Common Buttons

Visit the Button Descriptions help page to view detailed descriptions of each button that appears on your screen (whether in the Button Bar at the top of the table, or in the table itself). Note: If a button is unavailable (i.e. its text appears in Gray), either the command is not applicable to the current screen, or its function has already been applied (e.g. you clicked the New button for an item that can only be added one time).

Sample command buttons

The following section of this help page describes the various columns that can appear in the main table on this screen. If you see a column description below that does not appear on your screen, you can add the column to your view by using the Customize option under the Views button (located at the left side of the screen just above the table). Refer to the Customize View help page for more help on this feature.


This button allows you to view a list of changes that have been made to the current item. Choosing the button opens the Audit History window where item changes are shown in colored text. Note: Audit History is a developing feature and subject to updates as new functionality is added.
