8 Tips to Use Sentrifugo

After going through some queries from users, we have decided to give you a bunch of tips which will make your journey with Sentrifugo a cakewalk!

  1. It’s preferable if an IT Admin installs or assists you in installing Sentrifugo. As basic knowledge about webserver (LAMP/WAMP/XAMPP) and databases is required while installing this application.
  2. Sentrifugo only supports MYSQL DB and Apache.
  3. Ensure that you have permission to attach ‘Triggers’ to your MYSQL database, as Sentrifugo is highly dependent on Triggers. (If you want to host your application on a domain, Please ask your service provider to grant permission to attach Triggers).
  4. You need a proper email server configuration for sending emails in the application.
  5.  If there are any changes in your Super Admin’s email address and password, please make sure that you change it in Sentrifugo’s mail settings as well.
  6. Once employees are added, they can’t be deleted, however they can be made ‘Inactive’. Once they are inactivated they cannot access the application again.
  7. If you had added the employee by mistake, you can edit the current employee’s details to replace it with another employee’s name and details.
  8. Sentrifugo is packed with 4 user guides. You can access them in ‘Help’, placed on the top right corner of the respective modules in the application
  • Complete Sentrifugo Guide
  • Time Guide
  • Import Employees in Bulk Guide
  • Appraisal Guide

We’ll be coming up with more tips to ease your way through Sentrifugo in our future posts. Do let us know if you would like us to write a post about an area you’re facing difficulty with in Sentrifugo. We’d be glad to hear from you!!

      • Hi there,

        First of all I would like to thank all of you for interesting tool.

        If during user creation wrong mail was defined (which means that user will not receive login link and will not be able to login), after fixing mail address, there no possibility to re-send user credentials to the user and the only way is to re-create user which also not possible since there no “delete user” button.

        Regards,

      For the first employee, you will only see the management role since the first employee is like the CEO of the organization. After you have added the first employee, you will see the other roles when adding employees.

    • Hi,

      Thank you for choosing Sentrifugo!!

      1. The employment ID number cannot be changed to an organization’s specific number code system. When you add a new employee, the number along with the identity code is assigned by default.
      In Site Configuration -> General -> Identity Codes you can see that each group of employees
      is given a specific Identity code, which you can modify at any time. The business logic we have implanted
      is that whenever there’s a new employee in a respective identity code, he/she will be assigned an incremented number
      of the originally existing employees along with the identity code. Eg: EMP0001, EMP0002, or USER0001, USER0002 etc.

      2.Buy a domain and try hosting with the help of IT person.

    I have an issue which already was mentioned here:

    The answer was to use version 3.2. I’m using this version, but actually don’t know how to associate one HR person to multiple departments.
    How can this be done?

    Great Product, however couple of issues:
    1) Approved requisition does not show in the login ID of the reporting manager if creating by Super User
    2) Approved requisition cannot be edited. We cannot assign/ remove recruiters, cannot change the job description. While hiring people, this is something which is always needed.
    3) In the requisition dashboard, how do we add more columns such as POSITION and DEPARTMENT because one job title could exist for multiple positions and multiple departments.

    • Hi,

      We apologize for the delay.

      1. Approved requisitions will be visible to the employee (who has created the requisition)
      2. Currently, this is not available in Sentrifugo
      3. We are sorry to disappoint you, this change will involve a lot of code level and database changes. We will be unable to explain it to you theoretically.
