Sling has added specific tabs under an employee's profile so that you can easily find and add information.

As an admin or manager for your organization's Sling account, when you click on the name of an employee using the web version of Sling, you'll be redirected to the Personal profile tab for that user. As of July 2022, the profile details have been split into two tabs: Personal and Work.

Under the Personal tab, you'll find the employee's basic details. These include:

  • first and last name

  • email address

  • phone number

  • time zone where the employee lives

  • date of birth

  • home address

  • emergency contact details

Under the Work tab, you'll find these additional details:

  • status of the user's profile (whether they have joined the account yet or not)

  • hire date

  • employee ID

  • preferred hours

  • system role

  • manager assignment

  • location(s) assignment

  • position(s)

  • groups the employee has been added to

  • time clock enablement/disablement option

  • time clock PIN (for kiosk only)

  • option to hide the employee from your schedule

Under the Documents tab, you'll find any documents that have been attached to the employee's profile. For more details about how Documents can be added, please check out this article instead.

The Unavailability tab is where you can add, delete, or edit the employee's unavailability details.

The Wages tab includes any wage details for the employee. Note that Sling will store any older wage data in the wage history, which is accessible by clicking a link from within the Wages tab. Please note that if your Sling account is integrated with another platform, wage data will be imported from that application and must also be edited within the other platform in order for the details to sync correctly with Sling.

In the Time Off tab of an employee profile, you can adjust the caps for the individual time off categories for PTO that are active on your company's account. You'll also be able to find any history of recorded Time Off events under the time off tab of an employee profile. You can export summaries for that employee using this tab, and by selecting the appropriate date range you wish to view, and then using the export button highlighted in the image below.

The Notes tab is only accessible by admins and managers who are assigned to the same location as the employee. On this page, you can enter any notes that the employee does not need access to read.

New: It is now possible to assign a manager or admin to a manager's profile as well!

From the mobile app

You can also access an employee's profile information using the Sling mobile app, but in order to access all of the tabs available for the employee, you'll need to log in using the web app. The mobile app does not yet have access to the same tabs as the web version of Sling.

Tap on the employee's name to pull up their basic profile information in the Sling mobile app.

Select the option dots within the employee profile to make changes to certain details.

New! When you save an employee's phone number to their Personal details, you'll be able to use the Call icon from within the mobile app to dial that person!
