Adding/Removing a Status Message

By default, employees are able to view and edit their own Status message, as well as view other's status message. In order for employees to set the status message for other employees, Directory Status permissions must be set by a System Administrator.

Using the left pane Main Menu » Administration, click on: Employees » Permissions





Using the left pane Main Menu under Tools, click on: Directory




Using a Default Status Message:

  1. Click on the drop-down button next to (or under) Set Controls For to choose the employee name.

  2. Click on the far right drop down menu to choose from the default status messages.




Adding a Custom Status Message:

Removing a Custom Status Message:

TIP: If you were wanting to keep the status as a future option, but clear it from the employees current status... Select "None" from the drop down list and click the "Set" button.
NOTE: Payroll Administrators can also add, change or remove status messages from the default list by using Global Status Controls  since they have Global Directory Status permissions. Those with these permissions can also apply them to other employees/admins.
