When you have a member of staff that you need to record on the system, but does not have a contract or require a profile, you can set them up as "Non Contracted Personnel" and record any details and data you require for them in a central area.
If you go to Admin>Personnel you will see an option called Central Register.
Please note this area requires a specific User Role called Central Register Editor and Central Register Viewer.
Once you are in this area click on the tab that says "Manage Non-Contracted Personnel".
Click "Add" and populate these fields as required. The 2 options you have is Non-Contracted and Non-Contracted Full DBS, depending on what you need/want to record for them.
Once you have clicked save this staff member has now been added to your Central Register.
To choose what data items you would like to record for these staff members please go to the "Manage Data Items" Tab.
From here you can now choose what you would like to record using the fields at the top of the table (shown below).
