STAFF: Onboarding and Managing your Staff
On-Boarding New Staff Members
Your Staff consists of your employees and/or business partners. The Roles you assign them to will determine their level of access and authority to modify contents.
How do I add a Staff Member?
To get started, navigate to Flyout Menu > Manage Staff.
From here, click the +Add Staff Member button.
A modal will appear with fields to fill out for your Staff Member.
The upload block is for you to upload an avatar and this can be a photo or image (Please note this is optional and if there is nothing uploaded the Staff Members initials will be used as the avatar)
Choose a Role for your Staff Member

You have the option to add Automation during the creation of a Staff Profile, click the relevant 'Make a selection' or dropdown arrow to choose your pre-created Automation.
Email Audience: You have the option to add your Staff Member to an Email Audience.
Folder Generator: If you are have created a Staff Folder Generator you can apply it now so it is added prior to the Staff Member accessing their Portal (Tip: The Folder Generator can generate with Files that are already added, this is a great way to share Company Procedures or information that needs to be accessible by Staff Members)

On-Boarding FLOW: Staff On-Boarding FLOWs can be applied during the creation of the Staff Profile. If an On-Boarding Flow is assigned, it will be waiting for the Staff Member when they first log into their Portal.

Setting an Hourly Rate
If you would like to set an Hourly Rate to base on for payment to your Staff member, you can set it here. The value that is entered here will automatically be filled for this user whenever they create a new Timer in a Project. If you choose to Set the hourly rate as private, they will not be able to see this value (either in their Profile or when creating a new Timer). This is useful for instances where you are billing Clients a particular amount for a Teammate or Freelancer's work, but don't necessarily want that user to know that billing amount.
Staff Custom Fields
If you have created Staff Custom Fields they will be listed in the modal. Any that you have created as Compulsory will show a star and you must add data in order to save the new Staff Profile.
