Tabs and Menus
The top of each eNETEmployer screen contains tabs and menus that allow you to navigate through various screens and perform required functions. Use this help page to learn more about the various navigational controls that you will see throughout the program.
The tabs at the top of each screen provide access to each section of the program. Selecting a tab will exit the current screen and display the chosen section so you can begin working with its features. Note: Each time you use a tab to change to a new section, eNETEmployer recalls the last screen you were viewing within the tab and automatically displays it for you.
- The Active Tab - When a tab appears in highlighted text, it indicates that you are currently working within that corresponding section of the program. For example, the Orange color in the sample image above indicates that the user is currently working in the Payroll section of the program.
- Greyed Tabs - Tabs that appear in Grey text indicate a section of the program to which your current login does not have access. For example, the sample image above shows that the Inbox tab is not accessible by the current user.
- Tabs with Numbers - The Messaging tab offers a special functionality whereby it displays the number of unread messages at all times. This saves you the time of accessing your Inbox throughout the day to see if you have any new messages from other eNETEmployer users.
The menus at the top of each screen provide access to program screens on a task-oriented basis. For example, the Payroll and HR tabs provide both company-level and employee-level menus, while the Recruitment and Messaging tabs do not.
