The Messaging tab makes it easy for you to communicate with coworkers within HotSchedules. It works like any online email tool, so this tab gives users the ability to send messages to individual people as well as entire schedule groups (everyone on the server schedule for example).
Navigate to the Messaging tab in your HotSchedules account to check out your Inbox! This will display any messages sent to you (including system messages about your schedule).
Messaging Tab Navigation:
Clicking any of these filters will limit the messages displayed to only those associated with that filter. Automatic messages will come with filters already associated. For example, schedule updates will show under the Schedules filter.
You can add custom filters, here. You can then associate them with messages you receive later. Learn more details about creating filters in this article.
To compose a new message, click New Message. A new window will appear. Learn more details about composing messages in this article.
Clicking any message in the middle column allows you to view it in the right column. Bold messages in the list indicate it is unread.
Reply, reply all, or forward a message using the top drop-down menu. You can also associate a message with a filter, or create a new one using the bottom drop-down.
Delete or Mark Messages as Read:
Delete messages by clicking the X beside it.
Affect multiple messages by checking the Multiple box, checking the appropriate messages, and then selecting the desired option from the drop-down.
