Enter the new email address, in the text box provided. Repeat below to make sure you have entered the correct address. Enter your password and click the green Change Email button to save the change.
⚠️ Note: Your set email address is also your username. So if you change this the login details will also change immediately. All notifications from Shiftbase will now also be sent to the new address.
Enter the new password, in the text box provided. Repeat below to make sure you have entered the correct new password. Fill in your current password again and click the green Change Password button to save the change.
⚠️ Note: Your password must be at least 10 characters long, contain at least one number and one special character, and consist of a combination of upper and lower case letters.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a safe way to log in, as this provides an extra layer of security. When you have MFA set up you have to provide a verification code in addition to your password when logging in.
To set up MFA click on the green button Set up multi-factor authentication on the right. Follow the three steps shown on your screen and click Save.
The verification code, also called token, can be obtained via an external app, such as Google Authenticator. With this app you can scan the QR code as shown in the image below. The authenticator then creates a token. This token will refresh every few seconds.
When this is set up you have to enter this verification code every time you log into Shiftbase. This verification code can be found in the authenticator app you used to create it.
💡 Tip: It is possible to make the use of MFA mandatory for employees. You can do this from the settings.
⚠️ Note: If you close Shiftbase while setting up the MFA (after scanning the QR code before saving the settings), you will need to set up the MFA again next time. Even if you have already obtained a token by scanning the QR code. When the screen below is displayed you will need to set up the MFA again. Do not forget to remove the old token to avoid confusion when logging in.
Multi-factor authentication backup
We strongly recommend that you keep the backup code and set up a backup email when using MFA. You can use this if you unexpectedly don't have access to your authenticator.
In case of loss, theft or a broken phone, it is possible to use this code to disable multi-factor authentication.
A backup e-mail address can be used to receive a login link to regain access to the account. This email address must be a different email than the one you use to log in.
⚠️ Note: Do you no longer have access to your account and you have not set a backup code and/or email? Then your supervisor can manually disable the MFA for your account.
In the overview of active sessions you can see where and on which devices you are currently logged in with your Shiftbase account. By clicking on the red button Log out on all devices you can logout all these active sessions.
