Overview

When adding data to your Talexio account, you may either input details individually or in bulk. The Onboarding Assistant is a tool which will facilitate the bulk onboarding of your data, be it employee data, leave data, organisation data, training data, or past payroll data. This article will explain the third step of the onboarding process: training data. For instructions on the first step (organisation structure), click here. For instructions on the second step (employees), click here

To make use of the training data bulk upload, you will need to have the Training module. If you do not have this but are interested in taking it on, please get in touch with us. 

Permissions

To access the Onboarding Assistant, you will need the Manage All Employee Data permission. The permissions required to upload templates via the onboarding assistant depend on which templates you are looking to upload (each one needs to be set on global):|

  • Competencies upload - you will need the Manage Courses permission;
  • Qualifications upload - you will need the Manage Courses permission;
  • Courses upload - you will need the Manage Courses permission;

Check out this article for the specifics of each of these permissions.
