Add/Edit employee number series

Updated inย February- 2024 |ย Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Adding or editing employee number series in a software application typically involves configuring the format and sequence of employee identification numbers assigned to new employees. The organizations allot a unique ID or employee number to each of their employees when they add an employee to the database.

The Employee No Series page in the greytHR Admin portal allows you to set up and manage employee number series that are used to generate employee numbers. The numbers can be numeric and alpha-numeric.

You can allot different series for different employee categories, such as permanent employees, trainees, and contract employees. The application automatically increments the serial number each time a new employee joins the organization.ย 

To view the Employee No Series page, click the Settings icon > System Settings > Employee > Employee No Series.

โš ๏ธ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.
