In this article, we will review how to add new Workers, create Usernames for logging into the mobile application, and Tags for organizing Workers.
Step 1: Adding a New Worker
While on the Workers tab, select the button at the top of the page. You'll see a window appear that is ready to be edited and filled out with the First Name, Last Name, Username, and Tags.
Step 2: Add First Name and Last Name
Add the Worker’s First and Last Name. You can change the first and last name for a Worker at any time without affecting an Effort.
Step 3: User Names
Create and add usernames for each Worker. We suggest a naming convention like First Initial-Last Name (John Smith = jsmith) so it’s easy to notify all Workers of their username. If you edit a Worker's username, they must use the old username on all Efforts launched prior to the edit. For future launched Efforts they will use the new username. Usernames are NOT case sensitive.
The last column is where you will see Worker Tags. Create Tags by adding a Tag and will appear with a hashtag in front of them (#spanish). Separate multiple Tags with commas. Tags are optional.
Tags are a valuable way to sort Workers when assigning to Turf. You can sort by language skills, demographics, and/or shift dayS. You may also sort/search by First Name, Last Name and Username when assigning Workers to Turf.
