How do I enter contact information for an employee?

A new starter within Cintra iQ needs to have both a Personnel Record and an Employment Record. You can create Personnel Records for people who are not employees eg contractors, trainers, job applicants etc. An employee will only have one Personnel Record, but may have several Employment Records if they have had more than one period of employment.
For each period of employment, a new Employment Record needs to be created with a unique Employment ID number. If any of the personal information has changed for the employee, you can update the existing Personnel Record rather than create a new record. You will hold a Personnel Record for every person you want to record in the system. 
In order to create a new starter, you need to Create/Identify Personnel records. When creating a new Personnel Record, you can use the Insert People Wizard, which guides you to enter the person identifier and personal information. The minimum requirement for a Personnel Record is the data on the Personal Details form. Additional information can be entered or viewed using the other forms listed in the Cintra iQ layout.
