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.
User statuses can only be selected for a user when their user type is set to Employee, Temporary, Intern, or Contractor.
The availability of this section is controlled by a backend setting. In addition, the User Statuses section is only available to administrators who have permission to manage user statuses within User Preferences.
To access the User Preferences page, go to. Select the arrow to the right of a section name to expand the section.
