The Employee Directory template is an internal platform for the company to store and manage all the staff details in a single spot on top of Airtable bases. The template can be used to consolidate a wide range of information about the company employees such as name, email, position, personal interests, start date, bio, time off, and so on.

How it works

To start with, each new employee needs to pass an onboarding process in order to get access to the platform and have their profile published. Once on the platform, employees can use the advanced search and filtering functionality to browse the directory to find info on a specific colleague (e.g. to get in touch with him/her) or just get to know their team members better. In addition, there are managers with admin permissions who manage the whole directory and are able to modify the profile of any employee or contractor. The template also allows the employees to submit time off and expenses directly from the system, which makes it easier for managers to track all the requests in one place.

An employee directory is for storing the names and contact information (and additional details optionally) of the company employees. It is supposed to provide the employees and management a quick and easy access to their coworkers’ contact information and other details.

Employee directories normally include employee’s basic identification, contact information, and his/her position (i.e. job title) within the company. Additionally, in order to let staff members get to know their colleagues better, employee directories can include personal bios, interests, fun facts, and so on.

Employee directories are important internal communication tools that are use by companies quite often. Especially for companies that have teams across the globe, these platforms provide a quick way for staff members to get in touch with their coworkers or just learn more about them, thus boosting collaboration and team work.

As soon as you click the Use the template button, you'll be immediately taken to Softr studio and can start working on the template. If you don't have a Softr account, you'll be prompted to register first (a Free account will work just fine).

All the Softr templates are completely free of charge and can be used with any of the Softr subscription plans. However, Free and Starter plans have a limitation on the number of application users, so you might need to consider a higher subscription plan if you need to have full Memberships access.

Our users decide to use Softr on top of Airtable bases for several reasons. The most common are: - You will have a responsible and professional-looking user interface to share with clients, colleagues, and users on your domain (included for free!) - You will be able to manage different people's permissions at a granular level. Say goodbye to just "viewers" and "editors". You can decide which group of users can see and/or edit specific content. - You can merge several data sources all in one application. Do you want to connect three tables to the same app? Do you want to get data from other sources too? Not a problem with a Softr application!

Making internal business processes more efficient with Softr

I have been impressed with the flexibility of Softr. The ability to pull data from different Airtable bases into different blocks and display them on one page was one of the main reasons I chose Softr.
