5. If turned on, the PurelyHR Access option will automatically grant the new hire access to PurelyHR on their start date. 

Review and Confirm

If you have included tasks that require user-specific documents in your onboarding template (such as offer letters or employment contracts), this is where you will attach the document to the task. You will see a red exclamation mark beside the tasks requiring a document upload. You can select a document previously uploaded to their User Profile or upload a document from your computer.

Select Confirm to finalize the onboarding process. Your new hire will receive an email where they can start their onboarding tasks and task owners will receive an email notification that a task has been assigned to them.
