It is recommended that the following steps be done in the order presented to avoid repetition of previously completed system setup. Depending on which WorkMax modules you have purchased or how you may be using the system, some steps may not apply.
Step 1: Integration/Data Import
When deciding how you want to get your information into WorkMax (Employees, Locations, Tasks), there are several options. You can import the data via integration with your accounting software or via a .csv (Comma Delimited) file. You can also manually add this information into WorkMax as described in steps 4 through 6 below.
If you are integrating your accounting software with WorkMax you will need to download and install our integration Software, ConnectMax. During the implementation of your WorkMax system your assigned Customer Success Advisor will work with you to complete the integration between your accounting software and WorkMax.
Note: For importing of data, please contact us at 801-465-8181 for assistance.
Here you will set up company level settings, such as Permissions or Permission Profiles. The availability of Module settings is dependent on which WorkMax modules you have purchased.
