An employee can have only one Employee Number. You decide how this number is to be generated when you define your Business Group:
The employee name and number appear together in windows dealing with 'people information', such as the People window and View Absence History window. In these windows you can select an employee by name or by employee number.
The system automatically generates the assignment number and by default, it is the same as the employee number. You can manually override the default assignment numbers the system generates. For example, you might want to use this number to store a payroll code.
If an employee has a second current assignment, the system also generates the second Assignment Number by default from the Employee Number, as in the following example:
|Employee Name||Samantha Green|
|1st Assignment Number||1012|
|2nd Assignment Number||1012-02|
