TimeIPS Custom data fields allow storing and using additional data to enhance custom payroll and custom reports. Data can be entered directly or imported/exported.
The IPSCDF Custom Data Fields module is required.
Custom fields are configured with a "key name" and "value name". Then, you can import or enter data for the actual keys and values you need. The key identifies who/what the data belongs to, while the value is the data itself.
For example, to create a custom field to track the certification levels of employees:
To edit an existing field, update the text and then click the floppy disk icon to save.
Click the red X icon to delete a field.
To edit an existing custom data entry, update the text and then click the floppy disk icon to save.
Click the red X icon to delete a custom data entry.
To Go Back to the Custom Fields page, click the blue arrow icon at the top of the page.
In Custom Reporting, use expressions to retrieve the certification level for an employee by specifying the field key name (Employee Name) and field value name (Certification Level) along with a specific "key" (an employee's name).
