Staff can enter their availability through their own employee accounts.

We have created two short videos (less than 5 minutes combined) on how to turn on employee availability, invite staff into Zenshifts to have their own accounts and then submit their availability through their logins. You can watch them below.


If you would prefer to read an explanation, there is one below the videos.




First, You'll need to turn on Staff Entered Availability. 

Select Organization and then Company. 



Click Edit in the top right corner of the screen and turn on Staff Availability by clicking the toggle to the right of the screen. Click Save and you'll have completed the first step



Next, you'll need to invite your staff into Zenshifts. Select Organization and then Staff. 


You'll know if staff have been already had accounts activated by looking at the icons next to their names in the staff list. 

If a staff member has a tick next to their name, they are already set up and ready to go.


If a staff member has an envelope next to their name, they have had an invitation sent to them that has yet to be activated. To resend the invitation, click the "Resend Invitation" button in the top right corner of the screen.



If a staff member has no icon next to their name, you'll need to send them an invite through Zenshifts to set their account up. To send the invitation, click the "Send Invitation" button in the top right corner of the screen.


Once the staff members have received the invitation in their email, they need to click the "Activate Account" link and set up their password to finish the setup.

Staff members can now enter their availability through their own Zenshifts logins via Mobile Phone, Tablet and Computer.
