Code: Enter the Employee Code here.  This code may be up to 5 letters or numbers.  It is recommended that the Code be the first five characters of the Employee’s last name.


Name: Enter the Employee’s Name in this field.  Up to 40 characters can be used.


Sort: The sort selection allows you to decide the alphabetical "order" in which you want to display the Employee Name on the glossary and certain reports.  "Company" will display the name exactly as it appears in the Name field.  For instance, if the Employee name is "General Contractor", the Company selection will display the Name exactly as "General Contractor".  When "Name" is selected, Design Manager will attempt to reconfigure the Name with the surname of the individual before the first name.  In this case, if the Employee Name is "John Smith", the Name will be displayed as "Smith, John". "Manual" allows to configure the sort order of the Name in any manner you wish.
