Send and Receive Communications

Through Rosterit, you can receive instant shift offers and alerts, reminders, updates and documents via email, in-app push notifications or SMS text messages. Read below to learn the basics on how to communicate with your team.

Update Your Personal Communications Preferences

Once the default communications have been updated within the Company Settings, employees will then be able to specify how they would like their preferred communication method to be for receiving shift reminders, offers, and leave requests as well as how they would like to receive their roster.

This can be done by either the Administrator or the employee themself. Simply select the Employee profile from the Employees page, and then going to the Alert Preferences section of the Details tab. From there, just click on either the email or text message icon to select the preferred communication method for each type of communication/alert, and click Save.

View & Send Communications

The Inbox shows you all of your sent and received messages from any communication method. This includes general messages, leave request, shift offers, reminders and alerts.

To view your Inbox, click Inbox from the side menu bar.

  • Use the dropdown menus to filter messages by type or date, or search for specific messages
  • Unread messages will appear white. Read messages will appear green.
  • View your messages in the message viewer panel on the right hand side.

Want to send out general information or documents to all employees? Use the Inbox to compose messages to send to individuals or groups. 

  • Select whether you want to message an individual or a group. Groups are based on either role, skill, location or department.
  • Specify whether you want the message to be sent via email or text message.
  • Add any relevant attachments.
SMS Text Messaging

Aside from email communications, you may also receive messages from Rosterit via text message straight to your phone. This functionality must be enabled by your company to be utilised, so contact your company’s Rosterit Administrator if you have any questions.
