Short answer: users will have login credentials while employees do not.
A company employee list is a list of workers used to populate eForms and T&M tickets. An "employee" does not have a user account of login or any permissions in the PeerAssist platform.
Users are registered by the Admin and will receive an email with login credentials. Users are assigned a Role which is associated with various permissions in the platform such as setting up projects or pricing a ticket. The User list will populate the Project Team Member dropdown when setting up a project.
Users do not need to be on the company Employee List in order to be registered.
Adding Users via Employee List import
- You can add users individually in User Accounts
- You can add employees individually in Admin > Employees
- You can import a list of employees in Admin > Employees

Although Users and Employees are fundamentally different, if you wish to import a list of users via .xlsx import, you can do that in the Admin > Employee menu
