STAFF: Onboarding and Managing your Staff
Building your Staff
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 +Add Staff Member.
A window will appear with fields to fill out for your Staff Member.
Choose a Role for your Staff Member and fill out the required information. You can optionally upload an avatar.

You can choose an Email List to assign your Staff Member to from the dropdown menu. The Email list must be created beforehand.

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 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.
Sending a Welcome Email
The Welcome Email contains a link for the Staff Member to activate their account and set their password. If you choose NOT to Send Welcome Email Immediately, the account will remain Inactive until you do.
Managing your Staff Members
In Flyout Menu > Manage Staff, you can click on the Options dropdown menu next to any Staff Member to make changes to their account or to interact with them.
Edit: Update the information that was provided during creation.
Send Message: Send a Message to your Staff Member. This will bring you to the Create New Message page with the recipient already selected.

Change Password: You can change the Staff Member's password if they are having trouble accessing the Portal.
