Grant manager access to Ento for other managers or supervisors to share the duties of managing your workplace.

Add managers with full access to the Ento account (super managers), control their access level, or limit to specific locations and staff.

Core HR > People > Managers


There are a two ways to add managers:

Adding managers manually

The simplest way to add managers is individually, and even if your implementation consultant uploaded all of your managers when setting up your account, you’ll very likely need to update manager permissions or details, and create additional managers in time.

To view existing managers and add new ones, go to Core HR > People > Managers and click Create new.

Complete all the fields, ensuring you have the correct manager permissions profile, which determines what the manager can see and do, and the correct access level, which determines  the level of access in the Type drop down of the Access to section.

If you are using permissions based features like cost visibility restrictions, such as preventing managers from seeing other managers’ base rates or shift costs, use the same Staff ID for their Manager ID, linking the manager profile to their staff account.

Importing managers

To start a new file import, go to Core HR > Account data > Import data and click Create new.

Open the Type dropdown list and select ‘Managers’.

The purple bar under the file selection will then update to include a ‘Click here’ link for downloading a CSV template that includes all the fields necessary to get importing.

More general information on preparing import files can be found in Importing data overview.
