This screen allows you to manage the users of the payroll system and to assign rights and privileges to each person. Note: For security purposes, none of the cells in the table can be changed for the current user (the person who is logged-in). If the current user needs to change an option, they must do so from the appropriate screen that corresponds to the cell they wish to edit (e.g. if Joe wishes to change his password, he must do so in the Password screen).

There are two types of users that can be created:
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).
Create Employee User Accounts - Available for Administrators only, this button creates a Self-Service user account for non-terminated employees who have a valid email assigned to them (and who are not terminated in the HR or Employer tabs). When the button is selected, applicable employees will be sent an email that contains their unique login credentials (i.e. Username and Password). If an employee does not have an email address assigned, a user account will not be created for them. Refer to the Employee Self-Service User Accounts Overview tutorial for detailed instructions on this procedure.
Note: Choosing this button creates accounts for employees who do not yet have a self-service account. Existing employee accounts are unaffected.
Misplaced Login Credentials: If an employee loses his/her login credentials, the payroll administrator can reset the password so that the employee may access the user account once again. For added security, the administrator may also specify that the user must change the password immediately upon the next login. Refer to the Working with Passwords tutorial for detailed instructions on this procedure.
Deactivating User Accounts - eNETEmployer does not deactivate an employee's self-service account when they are terminated. Your company must determine how long these accounts are to be left enabled (once disabled, the employee will no longer be able to retrieve pay stubs and T4s). If you wish to disable an account, you can do so by removing the check from the Enable option in this screen. View a step-by-step tutorial on this feature
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, one of the following will apply:
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.
Use this cell to specify one or more employees whose data can be viewed by the corresponding user in each row, when said user is using the HR module. For example, if you are editing the row for a user named Pat Testman, and you want Pat to be able to see the HR data for all other employees, you would place a check in the box at the top of this drop down list (which will select all of the employees in the list). Editing the cell displays a drop-down menu where you can choose various employees that may be assigned via their corresponding checkbox. The menu also includes a search box at the top where you can type in a word (or words) and have matching employees displayed quickly in the list.
Use this cell to re-enter the password that will be used by the current person 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.
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 (i.e. if someone does not know their current password, they are not allowed to create a new one). This security measure prevents unauthorized users from changing another user's password without their knowledge (e.g. if an authorized user walks away from their computer while they are still logged in to their account, someone else could reset their password). For additional security, this cell will show as blank regardless if the password has been defined previously.
Use this cell to enter the email address that will be used for each person's user account. This email address is also used for the Password Reset feature. User account email addresses are created in two ways:
Valid email addresses, such as email@example.com are made up of the name, followed by the @ symbol, followed by a domain. The domain part is not case-sensitive, but the name portion may be, depending on the persons email server settings. Underscores and hyphens are permitted, but other special characters (e.g. #, $, !, quotes and spaces) are not.
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 (whether manually by a payroll administrator, or by the system when an employee Self-Service account is created). The number cannot be changed from this screen, but can be edited 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:
This cell is used to specify whether the user is allowed to login to the program. Editing the cell will display a checkbox where you can specify the two available options: Yes (user can login to the program) or No (user cannot access the program).
Auto-Disable - User accounts are disabled automatically after 10 unsuccessful attempts.
This cell is used 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 (e.g. there are two employees named "Mary Smith").
Note: If the user account was generated by eNETEmployer, the cell will show the employee's number followed by their full name, surname, and given name. You can edit the cell and remove the employee number if desired.
Available for Administrator accounts only, this cell displays the dale and time that the corresponding user has logged into the program. This can be useful in cases where you wish to check if one or more users accessed the payroll since you were last logged in.
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 it 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.
This cell displays the privileges that have been assigned to each user. Privileges allow you to control the actions that the user will be able to perform when they use the program.
Employee - This is the default option for employees who have not been assigned any privileges. An Employee designation means that the user has no additional privileges assigned and is restricted to viewing their personal information only.
When Adding a New User - When you are in the process of adding a new user, you will not be able to assign a privilege until you have saved the row at least once.
Further, the above mentioned Employee option will no longer appear in this list once the first privilege is assigned.
<Various Privileges> - Editing the cell displays a drop-down menu where you can choose the various privileges that may be assigned to each user. Choosing the drop-down menu displays the available options that can be enabled via its corresponding checkbox. The menu also includes a search box at the top where you can type in a word(s) and have matching items displayed quickly in the list.

Use this cell to specify if the users must change their password the next time they log in to the program. If this option is changed while a user is currently logged into the program, he/she will be required to change the password immediately when moving to a new screen.
This cell shows the user's unique login name that allows them to access eNETEmployer. The name must be different from all other users, and may contain letters, numbers, spaces, or special characters. If the user name was generated by eNETEmployer, then the name will be based on the employee's name and number, and will include a system-generated suffix that is based on the company's name. For example, if Mary Smith works at XYZ Company, the default username could be: msmith001@xyzcompany. Note: You can change the name of each user (even if it was system-generated), but the suffix cannot be changed.
