Two types of employees can appear in this list:
Note: The import method used in this screen is different than the typical import process whereby you import staff via a spreadsheet. For more information on the latter method, view the Importing Employees (and other data) from a Spreadsheet File tutorial.

When an employee is imported using this screen, only their basic, non-payroll-specific details are included (i.e. all of the columns found in the Employer or HR tab's Setup Employee screen). If they are being imported from an existing payroll, none of those payroll-related details will be included (e.g. no start/end dates, YTDs, pay rates)
Note: Even though the table in this screen only shows only five data columns (i.e. Surname, Given Name, Initial, SIN and Employee No.), all of the data columns from the Employer or HR tabs will be included during the import process.
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).
Import Employees - Use this button to import the selected employees (i.e. those who are highlighted in the table) into the current payroll. If you wish apply an employee template during the import process, remember to choose the corresponding template from the drop-down list beside the Import Employee button prior to performing the import process.
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.
