Conventions Used in this Manual
In this manual, we put [square brackets] around keyboard keys you must press, such as function keys [F1], the
[Tab] key, the [Enter] or [Return] keys. Prompts (messages and HR displays on screen) are shown with this
typeface. Information you enter into data fields is shown with this typeface.
Chapter 2 Installation and Setup - 9
Chapter 2 Installation and Setup
This chapter familiarizes you with the minimum and recommended system requirements necessary to run HR.
The Installation Procedure is covered in detail. It leads you through the basic install steps and then follows with
advanced setup procedures. If you have questions concerning the installation or setup, do not hesitate to call
Software Techniques’ Customer Support at (540) 721-1002.
System Requirements
With your purchase of HR, your license defines a maximum number of employees. Minimum system
requirements are fine if you have 100 or fewer employees. As the number of users and/or employees grow,
processing speed slows and you may wish to increase processor speed and/or memory size to recommended
levels.

The above screen will allow you to change the destination folder. The Destination Folder is
the folder where the HR software will be installed. Installing to the default folder is
recommended.
Note - The Destination Folder is where the software program is loaded. This may be different than
your Common Directory (discussed later in the Startup section of this chapter). Also, the
installation directory is not necessarily located on the same disk or computer where your SQL Data is
located. The software works best when installed directly on the client, to take full advantage of the
nature of C/S architecture.
9. After selecting an installation directory, click Next to continue the installation. The following
screen will appear.

Click Close to continue.
Database Connection and Setup – SQL Version
Only use this section if you are using the HR SQL Server Edition. If you are using HR
Diamond Edition, check out the next section, Database Connection and Setup – Diamond
Version.
1.
Before you will be able to continue you will need to make sure that you work with your DBA to
create an empty SQL database. Make sure that the database is large enough to support all
your data. Also make sure your DBA has given you a SQL account with the necessary security
to create all the tables that HR SQL will create.
Write down the SQL Server Name for reference _________________________________
Write down the SQL Database Name for reference _______________________________
Write down or memorize your SQL account User Name ___________________________
Also memorize your SQL account password
2.
Next, work with your DBA to make sure you have a SQL connection from your client
workstation. The next few steps will help you complete the connection process. However,
you will not be successful unless you have the SQL client tools installed and you can connect
to your SQL server via your network. In other words, it will be probably be best if your DBA
assists you in the next few steps.
Most SQL environments will require the SQL DBA to perform some of the database installation
steps.
Use the Database Administrator Tool for HR SQL to establish the SQL database
connection and setup the database tables. From the Windows start menu:
Chapter 2 Installation and Setup - 15
Selecting DB Admin mode from the Windows Start Menu
3.
After starting HR SQL, you will be asked to review the license agreement.
Be sure to read through the entire License Agreement:
License Agreement
.
If you agree with the terms of the license agreement, click
If you do not agree, click
4.
. Click OK to continue.
If you clicked “I Accept” after installing HR SQL, the following login screen will appear.
HR User Manual
16
DB Administrator Login
At this juncture you will be unable to login. The first thing you will need to do is configure
your Common Directory and setup your ODBC Connection. To do this click Configure. If the
button says "Change" rather than "Configure" then you are in the wrong place. You need to
be running the DB Admin Tool first before running the main application.
5.
The first thing you will need to do is establish a common directory. HR SQL needs a common
area to store common files that can be accessed by all users. It is usually best to store this on a
networked file server that is on the same network as your SQL database server.
New Common Data
Note to the Network Administrator - The common directory serves as a central gateway
for the application. It contains graphical images, user defined absence icons, encrypted
email configuration files, and encrypted ODBC connection strings, and report templates
as well as other common components shared by all users. It is important for consistency
that all users, who are accessing the same database, share the same Common Directory.
Select a common directory on a shared network drive or shared network resource, such as
“T:\HRSQL Data\Common”.
6.
The next step is to connect to the SQL Server and create an ODBC connection.
Chapter 2 Installation and Setup - 17
Establish an ODBC Connection string
Enter the name of the SQL Server and the SQL Database that you recorded earlier. You will need
to supply a SQL server account id and password. If you are not sure contact your SQL DBA. You
can test your connection by clicking Test Connection. Once you have made a successful
connection, click Next.
7.
At this point you will have the option of Checking for Updates on the Web.
Check for Web updates
This step is not always necessary, but is probably a good idea. In some instances where there has
been a change to the database structure, you may have to check for and download an update. If
there are updates available, they will be downloaded to the common directory. Each workstation
will update itself from the common directory. Click Next to move on to the next step.
8.
After connecting to the SQL Database, HR SQL will automatically test the database for structural
integrity. If you have just installed the application, the database should be empty.
HR User Manual
18
To create a new database or to repair an existing database with a broken database structure click
Fix All. HR SQL will automatically construct all the missing database components. Once you have
a working database structure, click Next.
9.
The next step is to make sure that the data in the database is initialized for use. At this juncture
the data should be empty and will need to be created just like the database structure was created.
HR can easily create an empty database for you.
To start from scratch with a blank database you can click Fix All.
Chapter 2 Installation and Setup - 19
Database successfully created - DB Admin setup complete
Once the data is created the database administration setup is completed. Click Finish and you can
return to the Database Administrator Logon screen.

With everything completely setup you will now be able to access HR from the icon on your desktop
or from the Windows Start menu.

At this point you will be not be able to login. The first thing you will need to do is configure your
Common Directory. To do this click on Configure. If the button says "Change" instead of
"Configure" then you are in the wrong place. You need to be running the DB Admin Tool first

4.
The first thing you will need to do is establish a common directory. HR needs a common area to
store common files that can be accessed by all users. This common directory will also be where
your main database is stored. It is usually best to store this on a networked file server.
Note to the Network Administrator - The common directory serves as a central gateway for the
application. It contains graphical images, user defined absence icons, encrypted email
configuration files, encrypted ODBC connection strings, and report templates as well as other
common components shared by all users. It is important for consistency that all users who are
accessing the same database share the same Common Directory.
5.
This step will show you where your database will be stored in relation to the common directory. It
also shows the type of database used. Click Next to go to the next step.

SQL Edition and Diamond Edition icons are shown
First time application login
To enter HR for the first time, login in as Admin with no password. Once you get in you
can change your User Name and Password.
2.
Now you should be ready to activate your license.
Enter your activation code
Your CD and CD case should contain an Activation Code. Simply enter the code and click
OK and you are ready to use HR. Once activated, your database will be locked into a
maximum number of employees. If your company exceeds that number of employees, you
can contact your sales representative to purchase a license extension. You will then receive
a new activation code, which can be entered through the Upgrade License Utility.
Congratulations! You are now ready to begin using HR.

Setting up additional workstations
After the first workstation, each additional workstation is much easier to set up. To set up additional
workstations, you can enter the program normally (not in DB Admin mode). Once in the program, you will get
to a similar login screen:
The Configure button has been replaced by the Change button. In this case, click the Change button. The
following screen will come up:
Just change the Common Directory field to what you set up in the step above. Once you click OK, the
workstation will inherit all the settings from the common directory. Just click OK on the Login Screen and you’ll
be in!

System Roles
In order to better understand which users have access to which options in HR, it is helpful to cover the
following System Roles.
Employee
Employees have read-only access to their own information. They can view their own records.
Administrator
The Administrator role is allowed to view and modify a certain subset of employees. This can be for one or
more departments. The Super Administrator sets their privileges.
The Administrator role does most of the data entry into the HR system. They can access and modify all
employees in their purview, but can not alter any global configuration settings.
Super Administrator
The Super Administrator has all privileges in the HR system. They can do everything an Administrator can do
as well as setting global configuration parameters and assigning Administrator roles and privileges. The Super
Administrator can also give users Super Administrator options.
Super Administrators have access to all employees, all the time. They also have access to all sections of the
application. Super Administrators can log in as regular administrators if they want. If you log on as a Super
Administrator, the database will be locked and you will be the only one allowed to use HR at that time.
HR User Manual
28
Database Administrator
The Database Administrator is a special role that works outside of the HR application. This person is
responsible for making sure that your Database is functioning properly. This includes creating the SQL
Database, making sure the SQL Server is operating smoothly, making sure the HR Database is secured and
accessible by all those that need access, and finally making sure it is backed up on a routine schedule.

Chapter 3 Getting Started- 29
Getting Around
HR is a standard Microsoft Windows application. You should be familiar with concepts such as menus,
clicking, double-clicking, drag & drop and therefore have no problem learning your way around.
The default screen of HR shows a list of Employees, Employee Categories and Employee Personal Information.
Each of these categories has their own section in Chapter 5 – Employee Information. There is also a
Department drop-down list box so you can filter your list of employees by department.
Depending on your role in HR, you will have access to some of the features. The others will be disabled.
HR operates by interfacing with the HR SQL Database. This is handled internally by the application as it
communicates with the SQL Server. The SQL Server can maintain several databases. To make sure you are
accessing the correct database you can always look at the application title bar. It should include the name of
the database in square brackets (e.g. [hrsql]). If the correct database does not appear in the title bar, exit the
application and contact your Database Administrator.
HR User Manual

Read Only Access and Record Locks
As you select an employee, HR SQL will communicate with the SQL Server to get the records for that
employee. The first user to access a set of records will place a lock on the records for that employee. When
the second user attempts to access the same record(s) at the same time he will only be able to access the
record(s) in Read-only mode. This will prevent two users from changing the same record(s) at the same time.
When a record is accessed in Read-only mode the screen title will display “[READ ONLY]” next to the employee
name and the screen will be a darker shade of grey.
Chapter 3 Getting Started- 31
Super Administrator Options
To enter this mode, click Settings->Super Administrator options. This screen allows the Super
Administrator to configure global settings that will apply across HR.
Date Configuration
This allows you to choose how you want the date to be displayed. You can choose from the options in the drop
down window.
Conversion Values
This allows you to set how many hours per day, days per week, and weeks per year for your organization.
Evaluation Scoring
This allows you to set how the rating for employee evaluations will be displayed. This will be defined later in
this chapter.
Data Suppression
If you are a user of Software Techniques’ SoftTime or TimeKron, you will be able to display current information
about the employee in HR. HR will automatically enable data sharing between the programs. If you want to
suppress these features, click the suppress SoftTime and TimeKron information boxes. For more information
on integrating TimeKron, punch clocks, and other biometric devices and SoftTIME Diamond SQL Server Edition,
with HR contact our sales department at (540) 721-1000.

History Options
HR can automatically create work history for each employee. There are nine different fields that can affect
work history. If you want to automatically create a work history record, when any of those fields change, just
check the appropriate box. If you do not want to do this, click Don’t auto-create work history records.
Additionally, HR can auto-create address history records. Any time you change a field on an employee’s
current address, an address history record (with the old address) is recorded. If you don’t want to track
address history in this way, click Don’t auto-create address history records.
Company Info
This information allows you to customize reports and printouts with your company name and logo. The name
entered here will appear wherever a report or screen displays the company name.
Pressing the Get Company Logo button will present you with a file picker dialog to choose an image file for
your company logo. Reports allow you to select a checkbox to display this logo on printouts.
Workstation Options
To enter this mode, click Settings->Workstation Options. These options apply only for the specific
workstation on which HR is running. They govern certain settings that apply to the user’s session and display
preferences.
Low Resolution Printer
This option allows you to specify that you have a lower resolution printer. The report generator will forgo the
fancier shading it uses when generating reports.
Case Sensitive Password
This applies to the passwords for THIS WORKSTATION ONLY. If it is set then anyone logging into this machine
will be required to enter a case sensitive password.
Chapter 3 Getting Started- 33
Tool Tips
This option will present you with a tool tip on the cursor wherever one is available in HR. This can be helpful
when you are first learning the software and can be turned off after you are familiar with the program.
Exit Warning
This option will alert you any time HR is closing to make sure you actually wish to end your session.
Deletion Warning
This option will confirm deletion any time you attempt to delete anything in HR.

E-mail Configuration
To enter this mode, click Settings->E-mail Configuration. These settings are available to the Super
Administrator ONLY. They basically configure HR to generate email via your existing e-mail server.
Enable E-mail Notification
This is the first step to setting up your e-mail configuration. When this box is checked all of the other settings
become enabled. Without e-mail notification enabled HR will not attempt to generate e-mails.
Auto-detect Settings Button
This handy button will go out onto the Super Administrator’s computer and detect the server and account that
is set up in the default mail client. It will present you with a confirmation dialog showing what it was able to
detect. This tool may not work for all computers, but it’s a good place to start.
Auto-detect Settings
You can either accept the detected settings by clicking OK or ignore them by clicking Cancel.
Outgoing Mail Server
This is the SMTP server name that handles your outgoing mail. It can be found in the configuration settings of
your mail program. It is usually in the form “mail.yourcompany.com” or “smtp.yourcompany.com”.
Chapter 3 Getting Started- 35
Administrator E-mail
This is the e-mail address HR will use to generate e-mails. It must be a valid account on the specified mail
server above. This is also the account that will be notified if there is a problem sending e-mails.
Administrator Name
This is the name associated with the e-mail account above. It will be filled in by the Auto-Detect or you can
change it so the generated emails appear as if they come from a certain person in your organization.
E-Mail Protocol
Most HR users should be able to use their e-mail server with the default protocol. This is an internal HR
protocol known as “Protocol S”. In some rare instances, you may experience problems with your e-mail server
settings. In these situations a certified Technical Support Engineer may suggest that you try using the alternate
protocol “Protocol W”.
My Server Requires Authentication
With security as a concern these days, most mail servers require authentication. However, since this will be
internal mail to employees, your mail server may not require it. If you use Auto-Detect, it will be able to figure
out your server’s policy. If authentication IS required, you must fill in the User Name and Password fields
below.
User Name
This is your E-Mail User Name, not to be confused with you HR login. In some cases it is your full email
address. Auto-Detect will be able to figure out if your server requires the full address or just your information
before the “@” sign.
Password/Confirm
This is your E-MAIL password. You must enter it here twice. Auto-Detect Will NOT fill in your password.
Test E-mail
Once all the information has been entered, you can test to see if the information will work. Click the Test E-mail
button in the upper right corner. If the E-mail was sent successfully you will be notified. Otherwise, it will tell
you why the e-mail did not send. If the E-mail did send, go to your E-mail program and receive mail from the
Administrator E-mail account. If you receive the email, you are all set.
Default E-mail Subject
This is the text that will appear as the default subject for generated e-mail. You can override this subject on
the e-mail notification screen.
HR User Manual

Evaluation Scoring
To enter this mode, click Settings->Evaluation Scoring.
This screen lets you set ranges for HR to express evaluation scores. Scoring Codes are based on the
percentage of points earned, not the point total. For example, using the values in Figure 3-5, HR would
convert a score of 97 out of a possible 100 to A (97%). The first or best score will always end with 100 and the
last or worst score will always begin with a 0 or 1. You can define up to 10 scoring codes for your company.
When you add or change a score’s from value, HR will automatically adjust the scores to the value.
To add a new value, simply click the last record and change the From score to a value greater than 0. A new
rating will appear with the name “-New Scoring Code-“. To change the name of the new score, click the box
containing “_New Scoring Code-” and enter the new name. To remove a scoring code, change the From value
of the preceding scoring code to match that of the code you want to remove. HR will merge the two codes,
keeping the name of the higher scoring code. (i.e. To eliminate the “H” category, change the value of G from
30 to 0.) If you wish to remove all of the scoring codes, click the Clear Scores Button.
Evaluation Scoring’s default is Numeric. If you choose an Alternate scoring code, it can be changed in the Super
Administrator options located on the Settings taskbar.
Chapter 3 Getting Started- 37
User Codes
To enter this mode, click Settings->User Codes. User codes allow you to create or modify items of various
user code categories.
To change the User Code Category, click the Code Category drop down box. This will list all of the categories
available for modification. Select the category you want to adjust. A list of available items for that category will
appear. You can add, delete, or modify most of these items. A few items are fixed and can not be modified or
removed. To modify an item, select it and edit the name in the text box. You can not remove an item if it is in
use.
NOTE: Changing a title is a System Wide modification. When you modify an existing title, that title
will be changed throughout HR, including each employee file.
Netwatch
To enter this mode, click Settings->Netwatch. This screen shows all users currently logged in to the system,
their workstation ID, and the application. Clicking on the refresh button will update the screen and show any
changes since you last opened the screen.
Chapter 4 Organization Information 39
Chapter 4 Organization Information
Defining the organization is the first task that must be completed after the software installation and before
you can enter any employee information into the system. In this chapter, we will explore what is needed to
get started.
Departments
Entering Department information is the first item you need to complete. This information defines your
organization, and affects all employees and reporting; any changes you make in this category changes the
entire organization. Click Organization. This section is broken down into Departments, Positions, Company
Benefits, Evaluations, and Attachments.
Before employees can be added to HR, it is recommended that you set up your departments and positions.
Adding Departments
Click Organization -> Departments and select the Add Dept button. A new screen will appear with the
department area blank. The only mandatory information on the screen is the department name. Click Add
Dept to enter additional departments. You can also add a manager, assistant, and department description by
clicking inside the Description field box and typing the information. After you have completed adding all the
departments, click the OK button.
Note - If you modify the department name, any employees assigned to that department will also have
their department name changed.
HR User Manual

Removing a Department
Click Organization -> Departments. Find and select the department you want to remove and, click the
Remove Dept button. You can only remove a department if the headcount is zero (0).
Positions
Entering Positions is the second item you need to do before you can add employees. This information
defines your positions, the minimum, mid-point and maximum compensation, Pay Rate, Exempt and EEO
Category.
Adding Positions
Click Organization -> Positions and click the Add Position button. The Position Name field will be
highlighted with New Position. In the Position Name enter the position; press the [tab key] to take you to the
next field. This will select the Job Description field. The job description field is not a mandatory field but is
helpful when writing up job descriptions for advertising. Enter the Job Description and press the [tab key] to
take you to the Min field. Type the compensation information in each field. These values serve only as
guidelines. An employee’s salary can go below the minimum or above the maximum. Tab to the Pay Rate
field, from the drop down menu, pick the type of Pay Rate, Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Bi Weekly, Monthly or
Annually. If the position is an Exempt position, click Exempt. From the drop down menu, select the
appropriate EEO Category. Now tab to the Pay Description field and enter how often this position is paid or
other information about the Pay. To add more Positions click Add Position and repeat the process, when
finished click OK.
Removing a Position
Click Organization ->Positions. Find and select the position you want to remove and click the Remove
button. You can only remove a position if the position is not being referenced in an employee record.
Chapter 4 Organization Information 41
Company Benefits
Entering Company Benefits must be done before you can add them to employee files. In each benefit
record you can determine when employees will become eligible for the benefit and how long after an
employee terminates the benefit is available to them.
Adding Company Benefits
Click Organization ->Company Benefits. Click Add Benefit and the field will be highlighted with New
Benefit. In the Benefit Name field, enter the benefit, press the [tab key] to take you to the Eligible After field.
Enter when this benefit is available to the employee. For example: 401K coverage - if this benefit is available
after 6 months and continues for 0 months after termination enter the following: In the Eligible After field you
would enter 6, [tab] to the next field and select months from the drop down menu or type “m” for months.
[tab] to the Continues after termination for field and enter 0, [tab] to the next field and select months from
the drop down menu or type “m” for months. Now [tab] to the Benefit Description area and enter
information that describes the Benefit. The Benefits Description field is not a mandatory field.
Note - HR benefits do not make a distinction between full and part time employees. Eligibility is
based on the employee hire date.

Evaluations
Entering Evaluations must be done before you can enter an employee evaluation.
Adding Evaluation Types and Categories

To access the document, select the document from the white box and double click. The attachment or
document will be retrieved by the program that was used to create the attachment.
It should be noted that HR will allow multiple attachments for each category for each employee. This is a
powerful feature. To read more on this feature, see Chapter 5 - Employee Information.
Note: HR will not move each attachment you enter to the Common Directory. It will simply save the
location that you specified. The reason for this is that if changes are made to any file that HR links to,
we didn’t want the user to have to make changes twice (once for the original, once for the copied
version). Because of this, it is important to note where each file is. If you specify a file on your local
hard drive, users on other workstations will not be able to access the attachment. Keep this in mind
when specifying attachments.

Employee Data
The Employee Data screen allows you to Add, Edit and Remove employees from the system and allows
access to all employee information categories. Each category is explained later in the chapter.
To review employee data by department, click the department box in the top left corner of the screen.
Choose the department you want to view. All employees in the selected department will appear in the
employee list box (Figure 5-1) directly underneath the department box. (Selecting All Departments will show
all employees in all departments.) To select an employee, click the employee name in the employee list box.
Once you have selected an employee, you can choose one of the categories on the right side of the employee
name box. Depending on the information to be viewed, move to the desired category and left click the
mouse. The employees’ data will be displayed.
Add an Employee
To add an employee, click the Add button under the name box.
Note – Before you add employees, it is recommended that your organization data such as
Departments be set up. To set up your organization information see Chapter 4 – Setting up
Organization Information.
Enter employee data on the Add Employee Screen. The only required data to be entered is Last Name. The
system assumes the hire date is the current system date. If the hire date is something other than the current
system date it can be overridden by selecting and entering the correct hire date. You can enter basic
employee information only on this screen. After completing the information for a new employee you can add
another employee by clicking Add Another. Once you have finished, click OK.

Category Attachments have their own screens.
An employee photo may be attached from this screen. Click Find to attach a photo or click Remove to unattach the photo from the employee record.
Since Employee Numbers, Badge Numbers and Payroll Numbers may differ for each employee, we have
provided you a method of maintaining each.
The Employee's E-mail is a very useful field because HR will allow you to send any report to an employee or
employees at will (Reports). This is a powerful feature used to notify an employee of a change in their
recorded employee history, attendance history or work history. We also find this feature useful to send a
manager a Department Level Report. Of course in order to use this feature you must provide an E-mail
address for each employee you wish to notify. You may do this here:

Security
The Security options allow the Super Administrator to grant Administrator privileges to users managing
departments and to assign which departments they have access to. The Super Administrator can also grant
Super Administrator access to another user.
Administrators and Super Administrators can also change a User's Name and Password. Employees can
only view their own security setting that by definition is only Employee Access.

Chapter 5 Employee Information- 49
Notice that an administrator can be assigned to more then one department without being assigned to all
departments. The following screen shows that this administrator may access two different departments.
Also the administrator's privileges can be set at one of three levels. Clicking on an empty check box will give
a blue checkmark, which grants the maximum level of access including the ability to receive leave request
emails. If you click on the blue checkmark it will change to the green check mark. This second level grants
full read and write access, but the user will not be notified by email of leave requests. Clicking a third time will
change the checkmark to yellow which grants access only to view employee absence data for that
department,
but no access is given to add or change data. If you click a fourth time the checkmark will be removed and
the administrator will not have any access to that department.

Removing Employee
If you find it necessary to remove an employee from the database, first make sure that the employee you
want to delete is the currently selected employee in the employee list box (Figure 5-1).
Note - Before doing this, it is a good idea to print all employee reports for that employee to be kept in
the employee’s permanent file. The reason for this is that once an employee is deleted from HR, all
data for the employee is permanently deleted.
Once you have selected the employee, click the Remove Button in the lower left corner of the screen. A
confirmation window will appear asking if you are sure you want to remove the employee.
Individual Attachments
HR allows you to enter attachments for each employee. This is covered more in the Attachments section later
in this chapter. Another feature of HR is to add attachments for each category within an employee’s record.
For example, you can add attachments to the Personal section or to a specific Warning. In each case, each
category’s sub screen will have an attachment section on the form.
This list specifies the attachments related to that particular category for that employee. For the Personal, Other
and Emergency section, the attachments are attached to the whole form. For the other areas (warnings,
evaluations, etc), attachments are added to each individual record. For example, if you attach a particular file
to a specific evaluation, the other evaluations will not have that attachment. Adding attachments to each
section is quite simple. Just click the Add button and you will see something like the following screen:
Chapter 5 Employee Information- 51
Just fill in the information including file location and click OK. You will then see it added to the list.
Clicking on Edit will take you to the same form where you can edit the information.
Address
The Address category stores present and past address information for an employee. The information
presented on the screen is the current information on the employee. The information in the white grid shows
the last time information was changed.

history record (any record but the “current” address), no new records are created.
Chapter 5 Employee Information- 53
Attachments
HR allows you to electronically store documentation and other files received from the employee. The
attachments category lets you see all the documentation and where it its stored. There are two places that
attachments can be added, edited, removed or printed, at the individual category level or through the
attachment screen directly. To review an attachment, select the attachment in the white box and double

complete data by telling you what employee data is missing; and Group Data Entry which allows you to enter
data for multiple employees at one time, such as Training.
Checklists
Checklists assist you in office management by creating a list of items that need to be completed for a
particular event. For example, you may want to generate a checklist for everything that is needed for a new
hire to complete or have on their first day of employment.

employee in the department.
Example
The Applications Programming department has 2 employees. The planned midpoint is 49,045. The total
midpoint for all two employees would be $98k. The planned midpoint for the Application Programming would

This report shows all employees whose current salary is either lower than their position's planned minimum
or higher than their position's planned maximum. If a salary is below the position's minimum, the report will
display the percentage under the minimum. If a salary is above the position's maximum, the report will
display the percentage above the maximum. (The positions table specifies the position minimum, and
maximum.)

Actual salary consists of a minimum, average, and maximum amount. The minimum is the lowest amount an
employee in that position receives. The maximum is the highest amount an employee in that position receives.
The average is determined from all of the employees in that position and their actual salaries.
Planned salary figures are based upon the amounts specified in Positions. The percent of midpoint is
calculated from the position's actual salary average divided by the planned midpoint.

Chapter 10 Utilities
Importing
HR supports importing data from a variety of other software programs and other versions of Software
Techniques Human Resources Systems. There are two options in HR for importing data into your SQL
database.
Under the file menu there is a utility for importing data into your HR database. Before using this utility you
will need to setup your data as you want it. This utility is primarily used to import a generic data file or data
from E-2000 to your HR database that you have already setup. This can even be used to add employees to a
HR database that you are using.
To use this utility you must be operating in Super Administrator mode.
To begin importing data, select File->Import from the menu. HR features an Import Wizard to lead you
through the steps of importing your data.
Figure 10-1
HR User Manual
124
Generic Data File
With a generic data file, you can choose to import either employees or departments.
Figure 10-2
Next you must choose the Generic Data File to Import. It is helpful to use the first row of your import file as
headers.
These will display the next step where you have to map the column names. Generic Data File types can be
xls, txt, csv, dbf, etc.
Figure 10-3
With generic data file imports, you will need to match the HR Fields to the fields in the import file. HR will try
to match the fields as best it can. All of the fields do not have to be matched, but to move to the next step,
you must match up the name field. You can match up fields by selecting a field and using the << and >>
buttons or by dragging and dropping between the lists.
Chapter 10 Utilities - 125
Figure 10-4
Duplicate Handling tells HR how you wish it to handle duplicate records that it comes across. Your choices
are to skip or to allow duplicate records. Skipping will not import a record identified as a duplicate. Allowing
duplicates will import the record and you can review both records in HR to determine which is valid. Merging
duplicates will check the database to see if the Name+Hire Date combination already exists. If it does, the
imported data will be added to the current data.
Figure 10-5
Press the Next button to move to the last page.
HR User Manual
126
From here click the Finish button and the Import will begin. Depending on the number of employees you
have, the import process may take several minutes.
Figure 10-6
Importing from E-2000
Importing from E-2000 is very similar, but there is one less step. From the first screen, select E-2000. You
will then be prompted to specify where the E-2000 executable is located.
After you click next, you will see the Duplicate Handling page as shown above.
Note – If you currently have a SoftTime or TimeKron database and are importing your E-2000
database, you should choose Merge Duplicates! If you do this, then your E-2000 employees will be
imported into your current SoftTime/TimeKron/HR employees.
Then you will just need to click Next one more time to get to the final page and click Finish. The E-2000
import should then begin.
Chapter 10 Utilities - 127
Exporting
Figure 10-7
There are two ways in which to export from HR, from the Quick List screen or from File->Export on the
toolbar. In both cases the Quick List screen will appear. Select the 8 column of data you would like to
export, click Export. An EXCEL spreadsheet (.xls) will be created. This data can now be manipulated
externally.
HR User Manual
128
Advanced Export
Figure 10-8
The normal export allows you to export data for which there is one and only one record for each employee
(Social Security Number, Gender, Hire Date, etc.). The Advanced Export allows you to export data where
there is more than one record for each employee. Things such as Award, Warnings and Evaluation can be
exported using this utility.
On the left side of the screen, select the group of employees you wish to export. On the right side, select
how you want the employee identified in each record. Then you can choose the category that you want to
export from.

Upgrade License
This utility allows you to upgrade your number of user licenses for HR. This screen will display your current
activation code and your current number of licenses. You can still call Software Techniques or your HR reseller
and purchase the additional codes, and you will be given a new activation code to upgrade to the newly
purchased number of user licenses.

Web Update and Automatic Upgrades
This feature allows you to automatically check www.softwaretech.com for recent upgrades and patches. If you
would like to set the interval for performing these checks, you can run the Web update option from the Help
Menu.
Figure 11-2
If a new version is available via the web an Icon will appear in the bottom right corner of the main screen:
Chapter 11 Trouble Shooting - 131
To download the web update, click the web update icon . This will do two things. First it will download the
update files to the auto-upgrade directory on your network. You will need to have read/write and file creation
access to this directory to successfully download updates. Once the files are downloaded they will
automatically be installed on your workstation. You will need to restart HR. Most upgrades will not require you
to reboot.
Each time you attempt to login to HR, the software will automatically check the auto-upgrade directory to see
if your workstation is running the most recently downloaded version of the software. If you need to upgrade
your workstation you will see a screen that will require you to update.
As you upgrade your old HR executable will be backed up and a progress bar will de displayed. After
completing the upgrade you will have to restart HR.
Sometimes an upgrade will require that the SQL Database is also upgraded. HR constantly checks the SQL
database to make sure it is compatible with the software. If the database and the application become out of
sync, you should have your DBA run HR in DB administration mode.
