Activation of Employees

When you create the new employee, either from the onboarding wizard or from the Add Employees button, there are fields to add their basic contact information.

When you add their email address, the system will automatically send them an invitation to create a password and to login.

During the activation process, each user creates a password.

  • As the administrator, you will see the progress of who has activated.
  • Shift Agent trains the whole team on their devices.
  • Team members must activate their account in 
 order to login to the system.
  • Team members will not be able to activate their account on 
Shift Agent until you add their email.
  • You can assign any team member you wish to 
 also be an administrator or manager.
  • Their email address is their username.  It is a level of security that Shift Agent uses to ensure privacy.  Once they create a password, then they are able to login from anywhere online to see their schedule.
  • The system gives them a quick tutorial of how to use the app to check their schedule, trade shifts, and request days off.  It even allows them up upload a photo to their profile.
  • Managers can edit profile pictures as well.
