Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Administrator work center.
  2. Access the Employees work center view.
  3. Click on New button, then Employee.
  4. Employee ID will be greyed out.


This is the expected system behavior when the interval of the number ranges for employees is set as Automatic.


You need to change the setting to Manual in order to be able to enter the employee's ID manually. To do this, please follow the below instructions:

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Access the Overview work center view.
  3. Search and open activity Number Ranges for Employees and Service Agents.
  4. Select the option Number range for employees under Available Number Ranges.
  5. Under the column Intervals change the Type option to Manual.
  6. Click Save.
