- No - users do not need to be in the employee master list
Employees Master List explained
The employee master list is used to select who was working on the job site. It is typically a field employee list.
The employee list does not necessarily include users of the application and it is not required that a user be in the employee list.
Importing a list of employees and marking them as a user in the import file will result in them being added as a user as well as an employee.
