Can You Allow Employees to Choose from Different Time Slots for Available Training?

Allena does not keep track of different time slots for a specific training. Allena is designed to keep track on training of employees. A classroom management software will be more suitable to your needs.

How do I remove an employee?

Allena training tracking is a relational database. This means, all information is embedded and interconnected among the tables behind the modules. By design, Allena does not make it easy for you to delete records. This is, once an employee has attended several trainings the information should remain in the system for future references. If and employee does not work for your organization or company anymore simply deactivate this employee. Allena won’t add this employee to training schedules or registrations during the generation process. If you are building your database from scratch please do not try to modify the sample database. Instead, enter your employees information using “The default datasource”. Please refer to; How do I remove all your employee records and set up my own?
