MYOB Exo Employee Information gives you the ability to store information on candidates for positions you are offering. You can store information on applicants and their suitability for particular positions. You are also able to store their interview information, resume/CV etc. Candidates who are accepted for a position can be converted to full employees.

To access candidate records, select Candidates from the Maintenance menu. A list of candidates appears. Click Add to create a new candidate or select an existing candidate and click Select to edit them. Candidate records are added and edited on the Candidate Maintenance window.

User Defined

The User Defined tab contains extra generic fields that may be used to customise your data. You can rename some of the "User Defined" fields, and use them to track information that may not have been included in the set screens provided with the system.

With User Defined Fields you can extend the power of the Exo Employee Information system to record items of interest that are not otherwise covered elsewhere.

The following types of User Defined Field are available:

  • Logical - Place a tick in the box to turn on a logical field.
  • Date - Enter a date in the format dd/mm/yyyy.
  • Text - Enter a short comment here.
  • Memo - Enter a long comment or description here. It can run over several lines.

To give a meaningful name to a field, double-click on the "User Defined" name; this will make the caption editable.
