hi,
I was wondering what is the best way to purge all employees in TimeTrex, or a way that i can have the ability to select what employees I want to delete.

so I guess my question boils down to are you able to click the top checkbox that selects all and click on delete to remove all employees. does that work for deleting multiple employees out of the system? Also if I am going to delete this way is there any remaining information that may linger after deleting all the accounts.

if that isn't the best practice from removing employees out of the system what is the best practice for doing so.

Yes, that is possible, but we don't recommend deleting employees in any live system.

We recommend marking them as terminated/inactive instead.

You can mass edit any record in TimeTrex almost, simply select as many employees as you wish and click the "Mass Edit" icon.

so after you do a mass edit like that make them either inactive or terminated do the accounts get deleted or something after so long?

Nope, thats the point, that the data doesn't get deleted.

You may not be using TimeTrex for its intended purposes, but in most jurisdictions its required by law to maintain employee records for several years after they are terminated, hence the reason we don't recommend deleting them. If you do want to delete employee records, you can enable such permissions under Company -> Permission Groups, and enable the "Employee -> Delete" permission. Those permissions are disabled by default to prevent the above from happening as well as accidental deletion of employees.

Just keep in mind, once an employee is deleted, all data related to that employee is also deleted instantly (ie: punches, schedules, wages, HR records, etc...)

Nope, definitely not. You can manually delete them on mass yourselves at anytime though.
