With Shiftbase it is possible to easily send news messages to employees of departments or branches within your company. This way you can share announcements and/or files in no time.
To ensure that employees can post and view news items, you need to give employees the appropriate permissions to do so.
Adding news items
To add a news item go to the News tab. Here you click on the green button + Add news message in the top right corner.
You will be taken to a new screen. Here you add the title of the message at the top left and choose which department(s) should have access to this message at the top right. Then type the message you want to share in the text box provided.
Do you also want to attach a file? Then you can drag this file into the light blue box, or select your file by clicking on the box.
At the bottom you can also check Send message to employees. If you do this then the employees within the selected department(s) will receive an email and a push message via the mobile app.
When this checkbox is unchecked no message will be sent, but the employees within the selected department(s) will be able to view this message from the news tab.
Once all the details have been filled in, the Save button can be clicked in the bottom right corner to publish the news item.
Edit and delete news items
To edit a news item, open the desired news item. Here you can click on the pencil on the right, make your changes, and click on Save to finalize the changes.
To delete a news item you can click on the Trash can on the right of the desired item. You will first be asked to confirm, if you are sure click Yes.
