The File-Store is a document management feature that allows those users with permissions to upload electronic files/documents to an employee’s record on Verde HR. This allows the user to label any stored document with a category and type for search convenience and organisation purposes. Users can also make notes in the notes section when saving a file on to Verde HR. To upload a document open an Employee Record.

How to Upload a File or Document

To upload a file record for an employee, please follow these steps:

  • From the Employee records page click on select Documents (see 1 on the screenshot below) from the side menu this will open a new menu below the top  menu, select Document Store (see 2 on the screenshot below) from that menu

  • Select a sub folder for the document from the Sub Folder drop down (see 6 on the screenshot below).
