Employee permissions within the system. Built-In Roles:

  • Student
  • Manager

Populating the import file with TRUE for a manager will automatically assign the Manager role to an employee. This allows additional access to the system, such as, being able to assign Courses or Performance Reviews. A manager is only able to do this for their direct reports. If an employee should not be assigned the Manager role, the column details should equal FALSE.
