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.
