IS2000: Creating a Personnel Template Guide

The following provides a guide to creating a new personnel template and applying a template to personnel records within the IS2000 software. Use this guide as a quick reference.

Considerations Prior to Setup

Personnel Templates are used to efficiently add new personnel records or modify existing personnel records. When you apply a personnel template to a personnel record, the selected fields with the pre-defined values will be automatically filled in for that template in the record.

Note: Use CAUTION when editing existing templates. When you are saving changes made to existing template(s), you will be asked if you wish to update all personnel records which have the template assigned to them. Clicking “Yes” will overwrite ALL fields with the pre-defined values currently selected in the Personnel Template for ALL records with that template.

If you are assigning a personnel template to an existing record, you will be asked if you want to update the record with the pre-defined template values, clicking “Yes” will overwrite the selected fields with pre-defined values for the template.

Note: If you are NOT using version 10.4.x or above, the term “Card Template” will be used in lieu of “Personnel Template”. With version 10.4.x or above, personnel records can be assigned an unlimited number of credentials (card, fob, or biometric record).
