Default employee fields

SeaTalk has default fields for every employee that you can enter information in. Some of these fields are used in other features. For example, the SeaTalk leave feature uses the Join Date field to calculate the amount of leave days the employee is entitled to.

You can access these fields in each employee when editing an employee and add options to certain fields.
