The employment status field is used to indicate a new hire's type of employment (such as part-time or full-time) and can be used as criteria to auto-assign specific tasks to the new hire's onboarding plan.

The employment status field is pre-populated with default options that your organization can edit to match your unique need. In this article, we'll cover how to add a new option to the employment status field.

To add a new employment status field option, navigate to the employment status Edit Field page by clicking Settings > Fields > Employment Status.

Under Selection Options, double-click an empty cell in the Display Name column to select the cell.

Once a cell is selected, type in the new option.

If your team uses a third-party integration that requires an external value, double-click the External Value column cell next to the new option you added, and enter the appropriate external value. If your team does not use a third-party integration that requires an external value, you can skip this step.

Repeat these steps to add as many new employment status options as needed. Click Save at the bottom of the page when finished.

You will be redirected back to the main Fields page after saving.

To review your changes, click the Employment Status field to return to the Edit Field page. An automatically generated original value will be displayed next to your new employment status options.

Note: Once saved, employment status options always are displayed in alphabetical order. The display order cannot be edited.
