In Martide you’ll find a feature called Contract Termination Reason. This allows you to add a reason why you ended a contract with a seafarer to their profile so that other users in your system are aware, and you know for future reference. Here’s how to use the feature.

Contract Termination Reason

Log in to your Martide account and click on Settings in the menu under your profile picture and then on Contract Termination Reason:

You will notice that if the reason is one you have created, you can edit or delete it. Click the pen and paper icon to edit and the trash can icon to delete it.

You cannot edit or delete any of the default reasons that are already in the system.

A couple of notes about Contract Termination Reasons

  • The Contract Termination Reason will only be visible to your company - i.e. seafarers and manning agents will not be able to see it.
  • You need to add permissions for your User Groups to be able to View, Edit and Delete Contract Termination Reasons. You can do this on your User Groups page.
