User Types

In your organization, you may have only a few or maybe you have a lot of people involved in your recruitment process.

In Emply Hire persons added as ‘Users’ and can interact with you and the other users in the recruitment proces.

Every ’User’ in the Emply system must have a ’User Type’ added to their ‘User/profile’, that sets the level of permissions and actions that are available for the specific ‘User Type’ in the Emply system.

You can create as many ‘User Types’ as you need to match your organization and the recruitment workflow and adjust the user’s permission with the User Types.

Custom User Types compared to the Personal Data Regulation / GDPR
Under ’User Types’, it is possible to determine whether a user must be able to extract data from the system. This means that you can remove the Export icon, Print icon, and Download icon for specific ‘User Types’.

It is not essential for a user to be able to extract data from Emply Hire as all data can easily be read in the system.
In this way, your company can ensure that you control the processing of sensitive data as a result of the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
