How Messaging Works
WhenToWork provides an internal messaging system that allows you and your Employees to communicate - even if your employees do not have E-mail.
Managers can send messages to one Employee, a number of Employees (by CTRL clicking names), all Employees who work a particular position, other managers, everyone etc. Employees can sign in and send messages to the manager or another Employee (Employees cannot send to multiple recipients).
When the recipient signs in they see a new message alert in the "What's New" section of their home page and they can click the link to view the message. If the Employee has email notifications setup then a copy of any message is forwarded to their e-mail address.
Managers and Employees can set all of their Notification options as to when they want to be notified or have messages forwarded to their email or text message addresses.
Managers can also send URGENT TEXT ALERTS - which sends a short email or text message to Employees who have signed up to receive them.
WhenToWork messaging is similar to other messaging systems. You can read incoming and sent messages, reply and compose new messages, send, forward and save. We recommend having all received messages forwarded to your e-mail account so that you can keep them on your computer for archive purposes. Unsaved messages over 30 days old are removed from our system.
Note: WhenToWork does not currently include a Spell Check feature but you can compose messages in your word processor, spellcheck, and then copy and paste the text into our messaging section.
