Hi Chris!

Depending on what information needs to be communicated to employees (schedule changes, upcoming job start time), there may already be a notification available in ClockShark. Feel free to check out http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1133746-using-notifications to see how those notifications suit your needs. :)

Regarding the ability to craft particular messages and send them directly through the app, this is a request that we are hearing more-and-more. I’m sharing this with our development team, and we’ll continue to monitor the votes here for this idea, so we can know when we should add that for you.

If you have any other ideas or suggestions, you can let me know at cliff@clockshark.com. I love to hear how we can improve ClockShark for you.

    Was just looking for a way to send out a recurring message to certain employees for reminders and things like that. Our company could definitely benefit from having a messaging system implemented also!

    The ability for an administrator to leave an employee a message which pops up on their phone the next time they use the app.

    I agree. This wold be a great feature for weather dependant jobs like construction. We have had rain for 6 days and the employees show up only to be told to go home because of weather and there is not enough inside work for everyone. Sending a message to all would be great and they could go back to sleep

    Also, in addition to my previous comment, we would use (and have used in other time clock systems) the text messaging for job or company specific notifications that are outgoing only. There are options for a reply and group style messaging but they get quite expensive.

    Just another thought.

    An easy option that would be pretty simple to integrate would be some type of SMS service that you could pay for as you go.

    Completely agree. Frustrating that we cannot send a message where other apps you can. Thank you!

    Yes please! This would be extremely helpful in situations where not every employee has a company email - maybe it could come through the app like a text message, and accessed by the office team on the web version.

    It would be great to be able to send a text individually or to a crew regarding any timecard or schedule concern. As, we are reviewing their timesheets or who's working now or who forgot to clock in issues it would be great to just address it with a quick reminder type text.

    Send Notification to Employees. Meetings, Events, remarks. Have the ability to send to to all or Select employees

    1. If multiple people are assigned to the same job they should be able to see that
    2. Multi user login with different view only, or schedule only option.
    3. Internal messaging and picture adding

    When my employees leave notes to Admin it would be great if Admin can reply back to them!

  • Linley Meisch commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is useful if you have any employee who is part time (and cant work after 2pm) or if an employee has a specific day(s) off for sickness/vacation etc or if the company is closed for Holidays or for any other work related reason.
    Kind of like a Post-it note on the schedule.

  • Mersades Petersen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    A Private Messaging/Task Request function between Admins/Employees would be very helpful when dealing with clock-in/out errors, scheduling, requests for time off, human resources issues, requests to use sick days, etc.

    A Comment on a specific punch or date(s) could be added by an empoyee and then sent to the messaging/task inbox of the Admin chosen. I'm sure the feature could eventually hold a multitude of functions in the future as well!

    Thank you! :)
