ATLAS Time Card - How to Add a New Official Position
This tutorial will show you how to add a new official position.
In ATLAS Time Card, you have two options when adding a position.
1) Official Position
When you enter the netID of the employee that you'd like to associate with a position, the application searches campus data to determine if the employee has any existing official hourly positions. The official position is comprised of the position number followed by the job suffix for this specific employee.
2) Unofficial Position
The unofficial positions is for employees that you would like to track their time, but they have no existing position in an official capacity with the university. This could be an unpaid intern or a student worker for example.
1.) Navigate to the Unit Administration tab. Click the Positions link.
2.) You will be brought to the Positions page. Click the green 'Add Position' button.
3.) Type in the netID of the person you want to add.
4.) Next, select 'Official Position.' From there, you can select the position that you'd like to add to the Unit Group. If the position is already used in another unit group in the application, it will let you know here.
When entering a netID, if there is not an official position associated with that person, only the Unofficial Position option will be displayed.
The 'Position Name' is only used in this application as a helpful identifier to both administrators and employees that track time.
Once you are done, click the green 'Save New Position' button.
