Full Story

Employee data within Poppulo Harmony is categorised into different data Fields. In addition to the default fields, you can also create your own custom fields to store your employee data. For instance, if you want to send Pension communications to those People on a particular type of pension plan, you can create a custom 'Pensions' data field. This makes it much easier to target communications to that group.

Use the instructions below to create a custom field. 

To Create a Custom Field: 

  1. In the People area of your account, select Fields.
