Automatically Reassign Training

If the course is one that should be undertaken on a regular basis, then you can set the course to be automatically reassigned at the required intervals.  

To use this option, tick the Automatically Reassign training option, then specify how regularly you need to assign the course. You will also need to select what the anniversary is based on e.g. specific date, employee start date etc.

Course Value Enter the course value in dollars and cents. Remember to be consistent when adding information relating to the course value; make a decision on whether course values entered will be inclusive or exclusive of GST.

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.

Provider Details

These details are filled in automatically, based on the Training Provider selected on the Course Details tab. They can be altered manually if necessary.


Training Courses can be assigned to Positions and/or Employee Groups, meaning that they will be assigned to any employees that hold one of those positions or belong to one of those groups.

NOTE: Training Courses can also be assigned to employees on an individual basis.

To assign the training course to positions and/or Employee Groups, click the Select button in the appropriate area, which displays the available positions/groups:

All unassigned positions/groups are listed on the left; all positions/groups that the training course is assigned to are listed on the right. You can click on items and drag them from one list to the other.
