Creating employees

In order to view the co-workers page of Roughly Right and add new employees you must be logged in as an admin user. From the Co-workers page, click the plus sign in the upper right corner to create a new employee. Enter their name and a valid email address, and press “create employee”. This will not send an invitation email right away, but the email field must be filled to create the employee.

At this point, the employee is created and their time can begin to be planned. You can also begin configuring other employee profile settings. Guilds are groupings of different roles, such as Project Management or Design. Plannable hours is the percent availability, based on the normal number of hours for the company in Basics. This affects the available hours in the Planning page. Lastly the access level defaults to Co-worker, meaning the employee will only have access to planning and time. Project lead has access to everything except Basics and the Employee tab, and admin has access to everything.

What do different access levels see?

Roughly Right has three access levels for your users. Co-worker has access to planning and time reporting.

Project lead has access to everything except Basics and the Employee tab. Admin has access to everything.

How do I invite a new employee?

Once you have added a new employee and configured their profile, you can invite them to set up a password and log in to Roughly Right. Click on the employee from the employee list to open their profile. Then, scroll down to the bottom and press the "Send Invitation" button. This will genarate an email to the employee with a link to create their password and log in to Roughly Right.

How do I remove employees?

At the bottom of an employee profile, there is a red button to remove the employee. However, this can only be done if the employee does not have any enrollment, planned time, nor reported time. This is to avoid any issues with accidental deletion. Newly created employees can still be removed using this button.

Next to the remove button there is an "Active" toggle which can be toggled off if an employee should no longer show as active and plannable. If an employee absolutely needs to be removed from the system, however, please reach out to us at help@roughlyright.com.
