Method 1 - How can I create new employment documentation via Workflows and Checklists?


Documents are created through the completion of workflows and checklists to ensure that your business is compliant and meets best practice standards.

As you work through any of the workflows within HRA Cloud, the system will prompt you to create relevant employment documents at appropriate stages in the workflow. Please click here for more information on workflows.



Please note that this example provides instructions on how to create an employment contract. The same instructions can be followed to create all employment documentation through HRA Cloud by applying these steps to all HRA Cloud workflows. The steps of the workflow will vary however the concept of following the prompts are the same.

1. Select the appropriate workflow from the following modules:

Employee Management:

  • Pre-employment
  • Employee Management
  • Termination

Contractor Management:

  • Contractor Engagement
  • Contractor Management
  • Contractor Termination

WHS Management:

  • Hazard Management
  • Incident Management
  • Return to Work & Consultations

For this example, to create an employment contract, select the “Pre-Employment” workflow under “Employee Management” module.


2. Select the appropriate checklist.  

For this example, it would be the “Prepare and Send Hiring Documentation Checklist


3. HRA Cloud has the functionality to initiate a new process or resume a process you may have started at an earlier date.

For this example, it would be “Initiate a Prepare and Send Hiring Documentation Checklist”.


4. Continue to follow the prompts which will include check boxes as well as options to create a document.

For this example, it would be to select an existing candidate and work through the question and answer checklist until complete.


5. When you reach the “Create a Letter of Offer and Employment Contract for the candidate” section, select “create” and choose the most suitable option.  

For this example,  we have chosen to “Create a new document”.


6. Select the appropriate template.

For this example, we will use “Full Time – Award Covered”.


7. Continue to complete the answers to the question, note that a creation progress bar shows how far along the process you have progressed.


8. During the document creation process you may wish to insert the image of the manager’s electronic signature. Please see the article "How can I insert a signature (image and HTML)?" for more detailed information. 

9. You will then arrive at the "Question and Answer Summary" for you to review and edit as needed.


10. When you have finalised the "Question and Answer Summary", you can preview the document, create it as a PDF or continue to work through the workflow by selecting next.


11. Upon completion of the other elements of the workflow click “complete”.

12. To view the created document, search for the candidate under the “candidates” tab, click on their name and then select the documents tab.

13. Now that the candidate documentation has been completed, you will need to convert the candidate into an employee. Please refer to the article How Can I Convert A Candidate Into An Employee? for detailed information.


Documents can also be created directly within a candidate, contractor or employee record. Please refer to the article Method 2 - How Can I Create New Employment Documentation Via a Record for detailed information.
