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's text appears in a Grey color, either the command is not applicable to the current screen, or its function has already been applied (e.g. some items can only be added once, therefore the New button will be unavailable on certain screens after it is used).

Sample command buttons


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


Confirm Password

Use this cell to re-enter the password that will be used by the current user to log into the program. This second confirmation step is useful to ensure that the new password is being entered exactly as desired (to avoid user lockout). As a security measure, this cell will show as blank regardless if the password has been defined previously.

Note: This cell works in conjunction with the New Password cell in that you must enter the identical password in both of the cells. If the password is not identical in these two cells, the password will be rejected and a Red notification bar will appear at the top of the screen when you attempt to save the changes.

Current Password

Use this cell to enter the user's current password. Required only during the process of changing a user's password, this cell is required for non-administrative users only as an added security measure (i.e. administrators do not have to know the user's current password if they are asked to reset a password on the user's behalf). This step is required for non-administrators to ensure that the person requesting the password change has the necessary validation. That is, if the user does not know their current password, then they are not allowed to create a new one. This security measure prevents unauthorized users from changing another user's password while the authorized user is away from his/her computer (but the user is still logged in to the program). For additional security, this cell will show as blank regardless if the password has been defined previously.

Employee#

This cell displays each employee's unique Employee Number. The number and name shown here was generated by the program when the employee's user account was created (see the Creating User Accounts note above) and is uneditable on this screen. If you wish to edit the number and name shown in this cell, you can do so via the Setup Employees screen.

If the word <None> appears in this cell for a given employee, it indicates that the employee is not assigned to the current payroll. Users may exist outside of a payroll under several circumstances:

Full Name

Use this cell to enter the full name of the user (e.g. Mary Smith) that will be used in the program's Welcome screen. This name differs from the User Name cell in that you may have multiple users that share the same common name (i.e. there are two staff members named "Mary Smith").

Note: If you used the Generate Employee User Accounts button (in the Setup Users screen) to assign one or more users to a payroll, the cell will show their employee number followed by their full name surname and given name respectively (you can edit the cell and remove the employee number if desired).

New Password

Use this cell to enter a new password for the user. This action may be necessary if the user has forgotten or lost their original password. For discretionary purposes, the password will not be displayed in the cell while is being edited. Instead, an asterisk (*) will be displayed for each character entered.

A password strength meter will appear while editing this field so that you have immediate feedback on the validity and strength of the password while it is being typed. If the password meter indicates Weak, the password will be rejected and you will see a Red notification bar at the top of the screen when you attempt to save the changes. If this occurs, please use a combination of alphanumeric characters until a Good or Strong designation appears in the meter. Passwords must be at least 6 characters in length.

Note: This cell works in conjunction with the Confirm Password cell in that you must enter the identical password in both of the cells. If the password is not identical in these two cells, the password will be rejected and you will see a Red notification bar at the top of the screen when you attempt to save the changes.

User Name

Use this cell to view or edit the name that each user must use to login to the eNETEmployer program. The name must be unique from all other users and may contain any combination of letters, numbers or special characters. The default name provided is based on the user's name and includes a suffix that is added by eNETEmployer Services (typically based on your company's name). For example, if Mary Smith works at XYZ Company, the default username could be: msmith@xyzco. Note: This cell is uneditable for the current logged in user in order to prevent them from encountering login issues (e.g. if the cell is edited by mistake). If the name must be changed for the active user, it must be done so by another user who has the necessary administrative privileges.
