Software Enhancements — March 2021

New Feature: E-Mail/Text Alert for Missed Clock-In

If an employee fails to clock in 10 minutes after their scheduled shift start time, eSchedule can send an automated e-mail and/or text message to Time Clock Administrators. This is a great way to be alerted when an employee is a “no show” for their shift. At this time, the alert will be sent to all Time Clock Administrators.

Cost: No charge

If you’re interested in using this feature within your account, please reply to this e-mail or open a Support Case.

Bid Report Updates

You may have noticed a recent change to the Bid Report. The number of currently scheduled hours appears in its own column allowing you to sort the column by # hours if needed.

Inactivating User Accounts

How to inactivate an account:

  • Navigate to “Administration > User Management”.
  • In the “User ID” column, click the name of the member you wish to inactivate.
  • Locate the “Status” field and change it to “Inactive”.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Update”.

​At this point, the member will no longer be able to login to eSchedule. All their old schedules, data, time cards, etc. will remain in tact.
