The Fabasoft Personnel File provides rich functionality which is described in the following chapters.
The personnel files dashboard provides the access point to the personnel file for end-users. When a user receives access rights to a personal file shelf, a dashboard is automatically created and put on the user’s “Home”. If the access rights are deprived, also the dashboard is removed.
The personnel file shelf is based on a personnel file configuration, but the defined settings can be overwritten or extended. The personnel file shelf is used to manage the personnel files and to specify the access rights.
A personnel file is assigned to a person who was, will be, or is employed by the company.
