Personnel administration > Personnel data forms > Ledgers > Employee populations 

Use this function to define a grouping of employees under a population. A population includes a set of employees, but it can also consist of sub-populations.

The concept of population is often used in selection screens before a processing is launched.

Screen management

The population management function consists of a single screen used to create, view and update the populations.
It is recommended to define a membership rule for the employees of each population. This rule is used to automatically assign a new employee to a population at the time of their creation. The employee needs to be associated with a membership criterion.

The employee population update function ([Population update] button) refreshes the list of employees based on the membership criteria.
It is also possible to manually add an employee to an already existing population group. In this case, the update of the population group has no impact on this addition and its deletion will have to be a manual process.

Entry screen


The following fields are present on this tab :


Enter the code of the population being searched or to be created. This code identifies the population in a unique way.

  • Title (field DES)

Specify the description associated with the population. It must be as explicit as possible.
This description is displayed in some screens, windows and reports.

  • Enterable on portal (field AUZPRH)

If this field is selected, the current population can be used in the functions of the employees portal in Web mode.

Table Sub-population

A population can be a group of several populations, called here "Sub-population".
This grid must contain the list of those sub-populations making up the current population (specified in the header).

Table Employees

A population is a group of one or more employees.
This grid must contain the list of those employees making up the current population (specified in the header).

  • Family name-first name (field NAM)


  • Update type (field MAJTYP)

This field, which cannot be accessed, displays the update type chosen for an employee.

Manual update
Manual means that the employee has been manually added to this population. The Employee populations menu or the Otherstab in the Employees record has been used for that purpose.
If the update is a manual process, the employee can only be removed from the population in a manual way.
SEEINFO This deletion will be passed on in the Employee record .

Automatic update
Automatic means that the employee is selected because it corresponds to the criterion defined for this population.
If the update is an automatic process, the deletion of the employee from the current population group, which is performed from this function or the employee record, is only temporary.
Using the [Population update] button systematically yields all the employees who meet the membership criterion. To permanently delete an employee from a population group, the membership criterion should be changed, then the list refreshed.

Membership rule

  • Rule (field CRI)

A population can be generated from a criterion.
When the population is updated, all employees who meet this criterion will be assigned to this population.


  • field CMT

No help available for this field.
