The only information needed when adding an individual employee is their first name. Of course, the additional information will help you utilize Your Next Seven to it's fullest, but we don't require much personal information to get you going.

As you can see from the image above, you can also enter in pay rates (for use with the reporting features) as well as certificates to notify you when they are expiring.
