Paybooks provides the employees easy access to their payroll and personal information, tax planning, reimbursements, leave, etc through the online Employee Self-service portal. 

To help provide this access we need to create and activate their ESS logins. 


The first step is to ensure the 'Enable ESS' option box is checked in the Employee Master. 


Go to TeamàEmployeesàDirectoryàClick "View/Edit".

In the Official details tab of the Employee Master check the 'Enable ESS'.
