With the reminders function, you can have automatic reminders sent out as a Qmail, Email or SMS when certain parameters are fullfilled.
Where can I find this function?
You can find the Reminders function in Settings -> Reminders
In order to make the messages more personal and informative, you can use a few Macros to automatically enter some information in the message being sent.
Please note that these macros only work with the Reminders function, not when sending normal Qmail etc
|[FIRSTNAME]||Prints the employee first name||John|
|[LASTNAME]||Prints the employee last name||Doe|
|[BADGEID]||Prints the employee Badge.No||1234|
|[UNITNAME]||Prints the employees home unit||Stockholm|
Good to know
When using the parameter "Leavetype occurance and duration", the reminders function works a bit diffrent from the much more straightforward attestation reminders
|Will a message be sent if you have the absence and then add the message to Reminders?||The reminder look at all leaves with the selected leave reason in the time period and will send the message.|
|If you set it to count 30 days back in time,
will it count current day as day 1?
|Yes, it will take current day and then count 29 days back in time.|
|If you set the reminders to send on 1 day
will it send each time the employee reach 1 day?
|No, the Reminders will send one reminder for each time period. This mean that only 1 Qmail will be sent.|
|If you edit a Reminder that already have tried sending a notice, will it resend all the notices?||No, the reminder will not resend those leaves it have previously tried to sent or have already sent.
To send the same leaves again, you have to create a new Reminder
