Maintenance, General Settings, Colours
Confirm that colours have been set to distinguish Secondary Agency forms.

Add a Client as normal – then Select Secondary Agency as the State. The colour of the background will change to show that it is a Secondary Agency. There is an extra view on the left called Temp Desk. Tick all the Temp Desks for which this Agency will be used.

Usually added on the fly as a Placement is being entered or a Shift filled. To add from the Person form enter a State of Secondary Agency, then tab to the bottom of the section to link with the Secondary Agency they work for and add/edit the Ref.


Contract Vacancies Make Placement – has now got a button called ‘Use Secondary Agency Applicant’ Click to bring up list of Agencies, Select Agency and use Select button – a list of that Agencies temps appears (blank if no Temps on system) or use the New button to add a new Temp to that Agency. Continue as normal. On the placement view the colour is different to signify a Secondary Agency Temp.

Shift Vacancies Fill Shifts – as you would with a standard temp but select the Secondary Agency Temp radio button on shift match screen. Then you select the Agency, then select a Temp or add a new one. Finally allocate the shifts.

Timesheets The change is in the last page which now has two fields for the secondary agency references. Reports will have to be adjusted to show these.
