From Theory to Practice:

Tutorial: Personnel Management with Dynamics 365 Business Central

  • How does the system support me with personnel administration?

    HR departments (or managing directors in small and medium-sized companies) are responsible for managing and maintaining personnel data. In the system, you have the option of creating an employee card for each team member. This is similar to customer cards or supplier cards that exist in other areas of the system. This makes it possible to store and maintain all employees in the system with the required data (e.g., master data, confidential data, qualifications, contact data, payment data) and even associated attachments (e.g., contracts).

  • To what extent does the system support me with duty scheduling?

    Depending on the size and structure of the company, the services of employees are allocated to different departments by the personnel.

    In the system, resources are allocated to the respective areas. For example, project employees are planned directly in the project task lines.
