The Advanced Personnel Management Module (further one called PM) is designed for companies that want to track worked time, overtime compensation, other work compensation (time or money), earned vacation, sabbatical etc. of their employees on a more advanced level than the standard Personnel Management function in farmerswife provides.
The module itself is integrated into the Long Form > Personnel Tree and is therefore not accessed from any particular menu.
The PM module produces numbers. These numbers are affected by the so called Labour Rules that an employee has and by his bookings. To use the PM module, you must either have it on your license (“Labour Rules”) or run FW in demo mode.
