Permissions: Owners

The employment status field indicates a new hire's type of employment, such as full-time or part-time. You can use this field to automatically assign specific tasks and E-Signatures through a new hire's onboarding plan.

The employment status field includes four default options, which you can update to match your organization's unique needs. In this article, we'll cover how to add a new option to the employment status field.

If your team uses a third-party task system that requires field mapping, you can enter the integration's matching field value in the External value column. Double-click the external value cell next to the new option you added, then enter the necessary external value.

Note: If your team doesn't use a third-party integration, you can skip the above step.

Repeat the above steps to add as many employment status field options as needed.

Click Save when you're finished.

Note: Once you've saved, employment status options are always displayed in alphabetical order. This display order can't be edited.
