If you try to add, edit or deactivate a user who has the same employeeID as another one on Appraisd, you will get the following error message. We use employeeID as the unique identifier for each user so no two can match across any account.
To solve this, you will need to find where the employeeID is already being used.
Where to look?
The first place to check is your deactivated user list. Go to the Admin Centre > People and apply a filter. This link will take you there if you're logged in to your account. If there are a lot of deactivated users, you can drill down by putting the employeeID in the search for text box.
If you find the employeeID here and it belongs to the same user, you can reactivate them.
If you find the employeeID here and it is being used for a different user, click edit and change it to something else (eg. put .old at the end). You will then be able to add the new user with the employeeID.
If you're using administration groups, the user may be in an admin group that you don't have visibility over. To find out, please ask your main account admin.
If you can't find the user in your deactivated list or in a different admin group, they may be in a different account - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out.
