I can share some insights about the SSN view in the Contractors List.
At the moment, viewing the full Social Security Number is unavailable in the Workers menu. Good news is, only you can access this information in the Vendors section of the Expenses menu. Let me walk you through the steps:
Click the Expenses menu.
Go to the Vendors tab.
Locate and click the vendor's name.
Click the Edit button.
The SSN is located in the Business ID No. field.
Having the preference to view the full SSN in the contractors list is a great idea we can add to the program. I would encourage you to submit this product and support feedback to our engineers. Doing this will let them know what features would help a business like yours run even better, and they will consider that in a future update.
With that said, I suggest you contact our Technical Support team so they can add you to the list of our affected users. By doing so, you can receive email notifications whenever an update on this investigation is available. You can refer to this investigation number: INV-38761.
