Cintra iQ Self-Service allows you to provide your employees with online access to your company's policy documentation.
Managing the policies is separated into two areas: Cintra iQ and Cintra Self-Service. You can set up the policy document's details in Cintra iQ and administer the policies in Self-Service. For more information, see the Policy Document check list.
Each time a new company policy document must be issued to your employees, the Documents in Self-Service module allows you to set up the policy's details to appear in the Self-Service interface along with the policy.

About the Document List window

Within the Document List window, you can perform the following:
  • Create a list of Documents.
  • Edit the details of a Document.
  • Delete a document from the Document List.

About the Document Visibility window

You can assign one or more documents to a Self-Service role so that different employees can read different documents. e.g. Payroll users of Self-Service would need different policies to HR administrators. When the employee who has the role opens Policy Documents in Self-Service, they are able to read the document(s) when necessary.
Within this window you can perform the following:
  • Select an Employment State.
  • Select a Self-Service Role.
  • Assign documents to the Self-Service Role.
Go to Cintra iQ: Tools> Documents in Self-Service> Document Visibility
