Employees

Overview

Employees are people in your company that will have time tracked against their name on daily reports. In some cases, an employee may also be an eSUB user, but typically the employee represents a laborer that does not log in to eSUB. If the account is subscribed to the Timecards/Time module, the labor costs from the employee(s) can be tracked in various financial and labor reports.

Employees are one of the “big three” database items in every eSUB account:

  • Users – Anyone in your company that will log in to and use eSUB
  • Contacts – Anyone, internal or external to your company, that may be addressed in the TO or FROM field on a document
  • Employees – Anyone in your company that will have their time tracked in daily reports or timecards
  • Depending on the situation, a person may be set up as all three (a user, contact, and an employee) in eSUB

Import employees

Multiple employees can be created at one time by using the import function. eSUB will import employees as a courtesy to our subscribers. We highly recommend to send your employee import to Support for importing. Please download and complete the most current Excel template and send to support@esub.com. A notification will be sent once the import is complete.

To go against recommendation and import employees manually, please follow the steps below:

A user level of Executive Administrator is required.

  1. Before beginning, ensure the labor classes on the import form exist in the eSUB database
  2. Go to Navigate > Administration > Company Setup
  3. Select Import Employees
