So that important details are not missed in the onboarding process, Fingercheck administrators can create an onboarding checklist for themselves when onboarding new employees.

Tip: If you are using Fingercheck 360 PLUS, you might want to try workflows in place of an onboarding checklist. See How to Use Workflows.

In this article, you will learn:

  2. Click the SETUP tab > HR > Onboarding Checklist.
