Send a message to all employees at a location

By default, TimeForge allows both Managers and Supervisors to send messages to employees. (Though, this setting can be customized for Supervisors on per-location basis.) This article will teach you how to send a message to all employees at a given location, which can be handy for sending out reminders, announcing upcoming events or requirements, or providing important alerts about the store.

You can also view and send messages at any time by opening the Schedules tab and selecting Messages from the sub-menu.

Enter your message

Enter your message into the text box. You can also customize the recipient list at this time, if you do not want to send the message to literally all of your staff members. Simply click on one of the available options (e.g. “Send a Message to scheduled staff”).

Other options include the ability to attach a document to the message, post the message to the Staff Log, and send the message as a text message to employees who can receive them (requires the message to be 140 characters or less).

Click the Send button to send your message

When you’re satisfied with your message, click the Send a Message button to send it to your employees!

You’ll then be taken to your Messages page under the Schedules tab, where you can review the message in your Sent Messages list or send another one.

heartWhat some of our clients have to say ...

We are one year into it now, well past being enamored with the newness. We are married to TimeForge. It's as essential to us now as any of our management tools today, and we very happy about that.- Steve @ Hermosa Cyclery
We really like the program so far. I know that it is geared towards restaurants, but we are a real estate company and we love it because it is inexpensive and it is so easy to use.- Nicole @ Exit Premier Realty
The Timeforge scheduling system has not only increased our efficiency tremendously; decreased the errors in what is normally an error prone environment; it has also saved us ten times what it costs us each month.- Michael @ Tiara Cafe
I would highly recommend TimeForge to anyone making work schedules. ... What used to take 1-2 hours, now takes 15 minutes. The reports section is comprehensive and useful.- Lawrence Payne @ Mid Pacific Country Club
