Edit your profile and choose which alerts to receive

TimeForge is a powerful tool for employees, and it can send nightly email alerts about upcoming shifts that you are scheduled to work. Your management team may use your email address to contact you with important work messages. TimeForge can even allow you to view your schedules and attendance on your cell phone and on Facebook!

In addition to nightly email messages, TimeForge can send a reminder text message to your cell phone before your shift starts, so you always know when to work!

To enable notifications for your schedule, TimeForge needs to know your email address and cell phone number. The instructions below will help you set up your account to receive alerts.

Go to your profile by clicking the menu in the upper right

When you log in, you’ll see a drop down menu in the upper right corner of the screen. Click this to open the menu, then select My Profile from the options.

Enter your email address and cell phone number

By default, you’ll see the Personal tab, which contains basic information such as your picture if you have one, your full name, email, and cell phone. Enter in your email address and cell phone into their respective boxes.

You can also change your password on this page by using the Change my password link above.

Open the Alerts tab and choose which alerts to receive

Now that you’ve set up your email and cell number, it’s time to configure your alerts. First, click the Alerts tab. Then, check the boxes for the alerts you want to receive by email and SMS (text message).

As you can see, TimeForge can generate a number of different email and text message alerts, based on the information that you would like to know about.

For example, you can receive an email or text message to remind you of:

  • Daily Schedules
  • Bid Shifts
  • Swap Shifts
  • Approval/Denial of Shift Swaps
  • Approval/denial of All Requests

The top two options  are likely to be important for most employees:

  1. Check this box if you would like to receive emails about new schedules and schedule changes. The number in the drop-down box (above shown as “2“) is the number of days you would like to be notified in advance, and can be set up to 30 days. You will only be able to receive information about schedules that your management team has posted/published.
  2. Check this box if you would like us to send a text message reminder before your shift begins. You can receive these reminders up to 24 hours in advance of your upcoming shift. You may be charged by your cell phone carrier to receive the text message. TimeForge is not liable for any text messaging charges that you may receive from your carrier.

Click the Save My Settings button to save your changes

Don’t forget to click Save My Settings when you’re done.
