Set Email & Text Alerts

Text Messaging is only available if the Scheduler is being used. If you only have the Bulletin Board turned on and are not using the Scheduler, you can set your notifications in the Account area.

You can decide to get notified via email, text message, or both about open shifts, when someone has picked up your shift, if a manager has approved or denied your request, when schedules are changed or published, and you can even get reminders for when you are scheduled to work. You can also decide to opt out of these messages and simply log into your ShiftNote account to view schedule information.
