Add or Remove MyStaffInfo employee groups

Common Tasks > Managers > Add/Remove MyStaffInfo employee groups

The second task in the Managers group and where you define names for sets of your employees, so that each employee group can be allocated to a manager. Note that only managers can approve timesheet entries. In addition this restricts managers from seeing timesheet entries for employees not in their team, which is recommended. The employee group should be given a meaningful name, typically after the manager, branch or department.

By default, MyStaffInfo provides one group, e.g. "All Employees". In this arrangement, one Manager reviews the website data for all of the employees in the payroll company.

However, when defining employee groups for larger companies, you will need to consider individuals responsible for reviewing timesheets. For example, if your company has six departments, a suitable arrangement may be to create six managers and six employee groups, with one group allocated to each manager. Using this principle, managers will only see website data for employees that they preside over.

You may elect to use a combination of both methods for example, via the "All Employees" employee group, a general manager or payroll clerk (who is marked as a manager) may be able to approve timesheet entries if the designated manager is not present on payday.
