Employees can opt in or out of emails, text messages, and Facebook alerts about upcoming schedules, shift swaps, and requests by editing their notification preferences.
Employees can change these options by accessing the “Alerts” tab, which is found on the “My Information” page under the employee’s “Set Up” tab.
It’s automatic, so management doesn’t need to worry about notifying employees anymore!
TimeForge will automatically notify employees through TimeForge Messaging, which alerts each employee of scheduling changes that may affect them whenever they log into their TimeForge account.
Employees have the option to additionally be notified through email and/or text message.
Notifications can be sent when a new schedule is posted, when a request is approved or denied, when a shift swap is approved or denied, when another staff member wants to swap a shift, when a bid shift is available, and when a bid shift is or is not assigned to that employee.
Make sure management has provided email addresses for all employees, otherwise TimeForge will be unable to contact employees to set up their accounts.
Employees can also connect their TimeForge account to their social networking accounts, like Facebook!
To do this, employees simply need to click “Access TimeForge on Facebook” under the Set Up tab.
TimeForge is the optimal solution for any restaurant or retail operation with labor management needs.
