How do I customise onboarding and employee file fields? | HR Platform

As an organisation, you many need to collect and store employee data tailored to your business' specific needs. These could be questions such as what dietary requirements they have for catering events, what software they are most familiar with, right through to what parking spot they use daily.

The Custom Fields feature also allows you to do just this, with the ability to ask a free text, single-select, or multi-select question to your employees. With the ability to set the user visibility, editing, and location of those questions. You can also use this feature to edit any information if it changes and delete a record if it is no longer required.
