An individual involved in your organization's operation is a "Person". In most cases, a Person is a full-time employee. However, Blissfully can track contractors, interns, and other external individuals involved your operations.
A person is a unique real-world identity, to which various accounts, roles, and privileges can be assigned.
Blissfully sources the notion of a person from any number of accounts detected across any number of systems. We then combine related accounts into a single Person, usually using each account's email to let us know they are related.
People are categorized into one of four types: Employee, Contractor, Service account, and Unknown.
Employees are full-time, typically W2-filing individuals.
Contractors are more loosely affiliated individuals, who nevertheless hold accounts in key systems.
Service accounts are not really people at all! Classifying a person as a Service account lets Blissfully know that the underlying accounts related to this "person" are accounts used for system management, and don't belong to a real individual. We use this signal to de-clutter these accounts from your dashboard, and to remove them from the billing calculations for our service.
People who haven't yet been categorized are Unknown until we are informed otherwise.
