You can notify your people about their new schedule or a shift by sending SMS notifications. Please note! In order to use this SMS function your company would need to have subscribed for the SMS and Voice Usage module.

How to:

1. Firstly you will need to switch a relevant setting on to allow for publishing via a text message. To do this go to the Notifications page (System Settings > Notifications) and find the Scheduling section.

Next, click on the first row 'Notify "People" of any activity in their Schedule' to open more options. Find a setting 'New rota' and switch the SMS button ON.

2. Go to the Schedule calendar and when you are ready to publish the schedule click on the arrow next to the main 'Publish & send' button at the top right hand side of the calendar and pick 'Publish schedule changes, then pop up will open for you to tick SMS notification.

Next, click on the 'Send' button - the shifts have now been published and the new schedules have been sent out both via email and SMS.

Within seconds your staff will receive a text message with detailed shift information!

If you have any further questions about SMS notifications do not hesitate to contact customer support via blue dialogue bubble icon at the bottom right corner of your screen.
