The required fields are noted with a red asterix (*).
Note: The employee ID is an optional field. Use the employee ID to track employees via a company specific ID #, for example. The Secondary email is an option second email address that can be used redundantly with the primary email address on file.
Once you are finished with the first tab 'Employee Details', click the next tab, 'Contact Info'.
The second tab provides the contact information for the employee. The Primary Phone # is the main phone number the employee would like to be contacted on. Organizations can elect to have a secondary number for an additional monthly fee. This allows the system to contact a secondary number in the event the employee is not reached on the primary number. For employees and organizations who has setup Alpha Paging in their system options, a Pager ID # is also available. The format for the pager ID# should be 7 digits in length, ie: 5555555, omitting the area code.
The Pin is a unique 4 digit pin number set by the employee. This is used when calling into the toll-free number. By entering the employee ID# and pin# the employee can hear all available shifts open to them. The default pin # is 0000.
The CallBack Contact Method is the method chosen by the employee for how they want to be contacted for CallBack opportunities on their primary number. The CallBack Contact Method for secondary number is how they want to receive CallBack opportunities on the fallback / secondary number, if enabled.
The Alerts Contact Method is the method chosen by the employee for how they want to be contacted for Alert Notifications on their primary number. The Alerts Contact Method for secondary number is how they want to receive Alert notifications on their fallback / secondary number, if enabled.
Do Not Disturb is a feature available for an employee to set a time that they do not want to be contacted for CallBack shifts.
