Default Employee screen

ProContractor uses default employee values when you create a new employee or when you import data.

Use the Default Employee screen to assign default employee values which your application uses when you create a new employee and when you import employee data from Microsoft Excel or QuickBooks.
Note: To open the Default Employee screen, select Employees > Setup > Default Employee in the All Tasks pane.

For example, suppose you entered a value of FED in the Federal Authority field for your default employee. When you get external employee data for an import, ProContractor inserts a value of FED in the Federal Authority field of any employee that has a null value (that is, no value) for that field.

You can enter one default employee for each company defined in ProContractor.

The Default Employee screen is a step in the employee setup process. The next step can vary:
  • If you want to import employee data from QuickBooks, the Import Data screen is the next step.
  • If you want to import employee data from an Excel or TSV file, the Import Setup Data screen is the next step.
  • If you don't want to import employee data (and will be entering employees manually), the Employee screen is the next step.
