By default, staff receives notifications regarding clients they have been scheduled with and/or they are preferred staff for. You can also enable staff to receive notifications for only clients they are a preferred sitter for, or only clients they are scheduled for. You can select which option you would like by going into Settings > Advanced > Notifications and choosing from the dropdown field.
If you select "Only Scheduled Clients" or "Scheduled Clients And Clients They Are A Preferred Sitter For", you must also choose how many days before and after a scheduled event your staff will receive notifications.
Disabling Notifications Staff Receives from Client
When a staff member is assigned to a service for a client or is a preferred sitter for them, they will become "subscribed" to the client. Being subscribed to a client means that the staff member will receive notifications regarding the client, even if they are no longer being assigned services or set as the preferred sitter for them. To unsubscribe a staff from a client, you will need to edit the staff member's details. From the Staff List, select "Edit Details" for the staff member:
From here, you can select the "Client Subscriptions" tab, which will show you all of the clients the staff member is subscribed to. To unsubscribe the client from the staff member, simply click the toggle switch to off.
When Staff Receives Notifications About Client
You are able to customize the notifications the staff member receives in the Bulk Notification Editor (which you can find in Settings > Advanced > Bulk Notification Editor). You can also set notifications on a staff-by-staff basis by going to the staff member's "Edit Details" section and selecting the "Notifications" tab.
Note: We highly recommend reviewing our Advanced Webinar - Notifications video for further clarification on how to best utilize notification settings for your company.
