You can change the way Employees and Groups are displayed for selection in the drop-down lists at the top of the Supervisor Dashboard, and also which Employees are available to you for use with Employee and Group functions. See Supervisor dashboard for more details.
From the Dashboard, click on Selection options from the other menu in the drop-down Header pane. The Selection Options page opens:
A number of fields and check boxes are available to select what Preferences will be set to alter the Employee selection.
Use the selection box to select what Employees to include with the following statuses: current employee, future starter, leaver and non employee (i.e. a visitor or temporary worker).
Only show employees in group — This Preference allows you to restrict the Employees available for selection to a particular group. Only Employees from the selected Group in the Group drop-down list will appear in the Employee drop-down list at the top of the Supervisor Dashboard and be available to view in Group functions.
Synchronise group to selected employee — This Preference allows you to synchronise the selected Group field to the selected Employee. When you select an Employee from the Employee drop-down list, at the top of the Supervisor Dashboard, the relevant value for that Employee will be displayed in the Group drop-down list.
This Preference allows you to define how Employees are sorted in the Employee drop-down list at the top of the Supervisor Dashboard and in Group functions:
Select a value from the drop down list of sort fields. In the example 'Personnel ref' has been selected.
The available sort fields are selected in the Preference: List of possible employee sort fields.
For example, selecting 'Department' results in 'Departments' being displayed in alphabetical order in the Group drop-down list. Selecting 'None' leaves the list unsorted.
In the example, the Group type currently selected is 'Department'. This means that Employees are grouped by department and individual departments can be selected from the Group drop-down list on the Dashboard. The other available Group types are displayed in the drop-down list.
In the example above, the check-box has been selected. This means that the Employee drop-down list, at the top of the Supervisor Dashboard, also includes the appropriate value of the Group sort field.
If the check-box is selected, the Group field drop-down list will be removed. For example:
This means that the Employee drop-down list will be defined and sorted according to the selected Group sort field.
When clicked you will be taken to the Employee selection page to customise the selection of Employees to use for the Group functions.
