Up until now we have required an e-mail address for every employee account that you created. This makes account activation/communication simple as we can communicate directly with your employees on your behalf to bring them to ShiftPlanning.
Several users reported that this was a limiting requirement as depending on the business type, if you don’t already have this information it can be tedious to gather it.
Starting today, e-mail’s are no longer required; only employee’s names!
Let’s take a look at how this works:
Here is an example of a .csv file I quickly imported that contains just the first and last names of employees:
Now that the employees have been added (without e-mail addresses) I need a way to communicate their account information to them. ShiftPlanning provides easy print-off instructions for each employee. This is found by clicking on their name:
These print-off’s contain a unique username/password as well as sign-in instructions for each employee, to make getting them onto ShiftPlanning easy.
Continue to use e-mail addresses wherever possible; this not only increases the speed of the activation/communication process, it’s also easier on the environment!
