Employees are people within your organization who do not have access to the Mifos X system. They are used to distinguish between the various types of staff as well as their roles and permissions (for instance: it designates loan officers and provides the ability to assign a loan officer to a group or center). With this option, you may view, edit and/or delete your organization's employees. To configure system users, their roles and permissions, see Users.

Once you have selected Manage Employees, a chart of all employees will be displayed with the following information:

Whether the employee Is a Loan Officer or not
The employee's Office
The employee's Status; whether active or inactive

Tip: An employee is not the same as a User (and is not interlinked with Users). Therefore, you may need to create users separately. Please see the Users section of this manual to learn more. In short, All users are the employees. But all employees may not be the users.
