employee Notifications center

Control which notifications your employees will receive, and whether they’re sent via email, SMS, Push notification or all three!

Settings > employee Permissions > Edit > Notification center
The Ento Notification center lets you choose which actions and events should notify staff via Push notification to the app, SMS, whether an email is sufficient or if they don’t need to be notified at all.
Learn more about how Push Notifications work and compare the different Communication Methods.

Actions such as shift updates can be crucial last-minute changes that staff need an immediate update for, whereas Schedule Summaries may be sent weeks in advance and can be opened when they have time.
As the Notification center is housed within the employee Permission profiles, different groups of employees can have different combinations of notification settings, all dependent on your needs.
Navigate to Settings > employee Permissions and edit a specific profile to find the Notification center tab and make changes.
Note that these settings depend on the ‘Send to’ settings chosen on each employees profile page under Core HR > People > employees. This means that you’ll need to turn on both those settings before the Notification center can take effect.
Similarly, if you choose to untick ‘Notify staff’ when updating a published shift, it still won’t send any notification.
