Notes Tab

The Notes tab of the Employee Maintenance window enables you to make or edit personnel notes on any employee.

Automatic entries are made when:

  • The base hourly rate changes
  • Salary changes
  • Employee's default cost centre changes
  • Days/hours of annual leave or sick pay are paid
  • Dollar amounts of annual leave or sick pay are paid
  • An employee is terminated or reinstated
  • The employee's tax scale changes

You can enter general Notes at any time. These notes can also be printed out in the Employees Report at any time.

Notes can be entered or edited from the Notes tab of the Employee masterfile window, by selecting Employee Notes from the File menu or by pressing F12 anywhere in the program.
