Background

External Resources (Freelancer and Employees of Partner Companies) may be bundled in a virtual organization called "External Resources". This makes the query easy. Another way to get such data, is using the PREFILTER property in column definition. 

EasyView is provided on certain user's personal pages (Dashboard), may be as a part of usergroup templates.

 

Features

  • Organization Preset allows to filter users by their organization membership.
  • Custom Fields can be added to numberless assets, such as USER. This example illustrates the capability to query any custom field (e.g. "Is Available").
  • Filtering Data is another feature, illustrated by this example. Refer to column "Country":  possible filter values are provided in a dropdown list at the end of the table. Select from list and the report will be filtered. Filter is just another property of a column definition, activate by opt-in. A couple of fields supports that property.
     

Story

  • As HR employee, we're also working with external customers. I'm able to create an external people directory without involving the IT.

Als HR Mitarbeiter arbeiten wir auch mit externen Kunden, ich kann frei ein Telefonbuch über unsere Externen Partner erstellen, ohne die IT beauftragen zu müssen.
