Once you have created open shifts on the Schedule calendar you can notify employees that there are new available shifts to apply for.

1. Find the 'Publish & Send' button on the top right hand corner and click on it to open the action menu. Select 'Notify people about open shifts'.

2. A message window will open where on the left-hand side you will find the open shifts which will be included in the message, if you wish to exclude any of them simply click on them. Next, write a message to the employees to invite them to apply to the shifts.

3. On the right-hand side of the message you will find the Suitable Recipients list. The people who are included as recipients are available and suitable to apply for at least one of the shifts based on the criteria set up in the System Settings. For example, if you have the ‘Position match requirement’ switched ON then the system will only include people to the recipients list who have the correct positions attached to them.

4. Finally, select whether you want the message to go out as an email and/or SMS and click 'Send'.

Please note! To use the SMS function for this your company would need to be subscribed to the SMS and Voice Module.
