Employees Come and Go

Employees come and employees go, that's just the nature of business. Virtual TimeClock has an elegant solution for staying on top of old employee records. Changing a user's employment status is sometimes overlooked as an alternative to deleting a user that's no longer employed. Instead of deleting a user, you can change their status to 'Inactive' or 'Terminated'. They both accomplish the same thing, the only difference is that one allows you to enter a termination date.

This allows you to keep all the previous timecard records for the employee while at the same time removing their name from the main time clock software window and other worker selection lists. You can change an employee's status by going to the Lists menu, choosing Users, selecting the employee, and clicking the Employment tab.
