Merge Employees from Clients

Elite Only.png

If you have previously been managing your employees by using a Client in FYI, you can now migrate your client to their employee record.

During the merge process, this will transfer all documents and tasks to the new employee. The Cabinets will also be updated to the Employee cabinet. Client Details will be merged, including Custom Fields, although for any details already populated on the Employee they will remain the point of truth and will not be overwritten. 

The following details can be merged from a client to an employee record:

  • Standard fields (Address, Mobile, Phone, Date of Birth, and Manager)
  • Custom Fields (note the Custom Field must be enabled for both Client and Employee)
  • Documents
  • Tasks
  • Process Executions (the history only - the process itself will remain available to clients only)

When merging an employee from a client, all records will be merged. Employees must be merged individually.

To merge a client record with an Employee record:

  1. Navigate to Practice - Employees.

  2. Tick the Employee to be merged from the Employee list.
