User Preferences - User Status - Edit

User statuses enable organizations to track an employee through different employment life-cycle statuses. All user statuses are pre-defined with default names and categories so that specific functionality can be associated with user statuses within the system. Additional user statuses cannot be created. Although the system uses pre-defined user statuses, administrators can configure the user status names to match their organization's terminology.

To access the User Preferences page, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Core Preferences > User Preferences.

  • To edit a user status, select Edit from the Options drop-down menu.

Enter the following information for the user status:

  • User Status - Enter the user status name, up to 100 characters. This should clearly describe the employment life-cycle status associated with the user status. This is required. If multiple languages are enabled for your portal, select the Translate icon to translate the field into other available languages.
  • Status Category - This displays the system-defined category for the user status. This value cannot be modified.
  • Active - When a user status is active, it can be selected when creating or editing a user. If a user status is deactivated, the user status continues to be associated with the user. However, inactive user statuses cannot be selected when creating or editing a user.

Save or Cancel

Click Save to save the user status and return to the User Preferences page. Or, click Cancel to discard any unsaved changes.
