Onboarding Employee Details Fields

The following table provides descriptions for the fields shown on the Employee Details page.

Users with View permissions can use this page to see details for new hires who have started the onboarding process. To access this page, open the Onboarding Dashboard (Employee Tools > Onboarding Dashboard), and select the new hire's name from the Employee column. See Create and Manage Hiring Locations for details on permissions.

Field Description
Expected HR Ref Allows Onboarding Admins to enter a specific HR reference number for a new hire. This number is then skipped if you select Auto Generate HR Ref when initializing new hires to Vista.
Expected Hire Date If you know the date you expect to officially hire the employee, enter it here. This prefills the hire date when the employee is initialized to Vista.
Rehire Employee For rehired employees, this field allows you to link the new hire's record to an HR Resource record.
  • If an HR Resource record was linked when the invitation was sent, that information populates in this field.
  • When the new hire is initialized to Vista, the existing HR Resource record is updated instead of a new record being created.
Initialize to Vista Allows users to create a new HR Resource record for a new hire or update an existing one, if this employee is a rehire. See Initialize a New Hire to Vista for details.
Notes Allows users to enter internal notes that are shared among users with access to the new hire's record.
Send Reminder Sends an email to remind the new hire to complete onboarding tasks.

This email includes a link to the Onboarding welcome page and login information.
Archive / Delete Employee
  • Archive Employee: Allows you to remove an employee from the onboarding process but keep the new hire record. These records can be unarchived at any time. New hires cannot access onboarding tasks if their record has been archived.
  • Delete Employee: Allows you to remove a new hire's record. Deleting a new hire record removes it from the system.
Export Completed Tasks Allows users to download all completed onboarding tasks for this new hire to a zipped file folder.

Task Tracker Allows users to view all onboarding tasks assigned to this new hire, including Forms I-9 and W-4 if those were included in the Onboarding profile.
  • Tasks highlighted in blue are internal onboarding tasks.

  • If the employee is a rehire, Step 3 of Form I-9 also displays as a task.
