Sending a Message to Other Staff Members

TimeForge’s messaging system provides a single location for convenient and simple work related messages. Messages sent through TimeForge are sent as both email messages, and are also available as TimeForge messages when logged into TimeForge.

To send and receive messages, make sure that you have provided an email address on the TimeForge “Setup” page.

Get to the Messages Page on the Schedules Tab

First, navigate to the “Schedules” tab, and then the “Messages” sub-tab.

From the “Today” Tab, you can click on the Schedules tab, or click on the I Have Unread Messages button.

Navigate to the Messages Page

The “Messages” page displays all incoming / received messages from managers and other staff members, as well as messages that you have sent to other team members.

Send a Staff Message

The last several messages sent through TimeForge are listed in the Sent Messages section.

To send a new message, click on Send a Message.

Choose Staff Members and Send Your Message

Choose the staff members that should receive your message, and enter an appropriate message. Selected individuals will receive notification of the message through their TimeForge account as well as through email. Click on Send a Message to send the message.

Staff members are displayed in an easy to read / locate fashion, and you can send a message to multiple staff members by simply selecting all of the staff member names. Team members and managers that do not have a TimeForge account are shown with a line drawn through them, as these individuals cannot receive messages using TimeForge.

Please note: If the recipient of your message responds via email, it will be delivered to your email account that is registered with TimeForge.

Review Sent Messages

At any time, you can review the status of messages sent using TimeForge.

TimeForge records the message date and time, the actual message, and the number of recipients (click on the Sent Messages link to see which staff members the message was sent to) . If an email address for the recipient(s) was configured with TimeForge, emails were also sent to these coworkers, and anyone that has viewed the message will be displayed in the Viewed Messages link.

Please note: TimeForge cannot accurately record any message that is read via the recipients email account, so the number listed in Viewed Messages is likely lower than the actual number of read messages.

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
I've been really pleased with this latest version of TimeForge. I'm really getting familiar with this program and its become a great time saver! Keep up the good work!- Loren @ Fresh Produce
Before using TimeForge, creating a schedule took 2 hours. With TimeForge, it takes less than 10 minutes.- Gail @ Kerr Drug
