Add or Remove a Temporary Employee Manually

Important Note: This procedure only applies when your Employee data is transferred via SFTP or upload via Manual Import.

When you have temporary employees such as Auditors or short-term Contractors that have a requirement to be seated at a desk, you will need to include these people in SpaceIQ.

Normally, employees are imported into SpaceIQ either Employee import via SFTP or manually uploaded. If you do not want to include temporary employees in the Employee Import, then you can manually add or remove these employees.

When the Employee import is loaded into SpaceIQ and any employees not included in the import file but exist already in the SpaceIQ Employee list, those employees coming in through the import will be deleted. Any employee manually added to the SpaceIQ Employee list will not be deleted.
