An employee type is a group defined by how employees are paid. Employee types are used for payroll, time tracking, and reporting purposes. Examples of predefined employee types include Full-time Hourly, Part-time Salaried, and Contractor employee types. Each user can be assigned only one employee type in Web TimeSheet.

Web TimeSheet supports creating timesheet periods based on the Employee type of the user. You can use Web TimeSheet's predefined employee types, or create new types to meet your organization's unique needs. Employee types must be defined before setting up users or defining timesheet periods.

To create an Employee Type:

  • Log into Web TimeSheet with administrative rights.
  • Click on Administration? tab from top menu. Select Employee Types? under Users/Departments from the side menu.
  • To add a new employee type, select the Add button, at the bottom of the screen.
  • Enter the employee type name and description.
  • Click on Save.

Note:
This newly created Employee Type will be listed in the Employee Type field, under the Advanced tab of the user profile.
