The General section is the heart of every single user account. It shows all information about the respective user, and is therefore unique for every user.
There are two ways to edit user information:
1. Edit the general information through the respective profile of the individual user. (You need to be at least Admin, HR or Owner.)
- Click on "Users" to see all employees.
- If the desired user is not listed, he/she can be found with the help of the search bar or other specifications like the location, department or team.
- Now click on the desired user to see the respective Overview (e.g. Christina Lebbe).
- You can now see the general information of the user.
- To customize information, click on "Edit". (Note that you need to be at least Admin, HR or Owner to edit certain details.)
