After downloading the 7tasks app, an Admin, or Manager/Assistant Manager with the permission 'Can manage tasks,' can log in using their 7shifts login information to and launch the punch pad. 

⚠️ You won't be logged out of 7tasks, so you will not have to keep re-entering your login information to launch the app each day. 

2. Sign in to the app using your 7shifts email and password. If you have more than one account or Location, you will be prompted to choose when you sign in.

From there you'll see the 7tasks punch pad, where you and your employees can sign in using your own punch IDs.

⚠️ To help reduce the risk in using shared devices, 7tasks users can allow their employees to access task lists from their personal devices.

Some tasks will require that you enter a temperature or number value.

⚠️ For photo entries, the device that is set up as your 7tasks terminal will require a built-in camera.

They will also need to grant the 7tasks app access to the device’s camera.

Next, take a photo and tap 'Complete Task' to submit it or 'Retake' to try taking another photo.

⚠️ Only a single photo can be submitted for the task.

Tagging Employees to Tasks

If you have a specific employee in mind for a task, you can tag them directly from the 7shifts web and mobile apps. Tagging your employees can increase your task completion rate by 135%!

⚠️ Managers/Assistant Managers require the 'Can manage tasks' manager permission to tag employees within 7tasks. 
Click here to learn more.

1. Open your task list, where you'll see a three-dotted icon next to your task. Tap on this, then tap on 'Tag employee.'

2. Alternatively, if you are looking at the details for a single task, you can tap on the 'Tag employee' icon at the top of the page.

3. Next, you will see a list of employees scheduled to work that day, the times they are scheduled for, and the Role they are scheduled under.

Tap on the name of the Employee you wish to tag to this task.

4. From there you'll see the tag applied to the selected task. When the employee opens 7tasks, they will also see that they have been tagged to this task.

If you want to change who is tagged to a task:

1.  While viewing the task list or the details of a task, tap on the tag option.

2. Then, tap on 'Change tag.'

3. From there you can then select another employee or select 'Unassigned' if you no longer want anyone to be tagged to the task.

After this, your tag will immediately be updated.

⚠️ Please Note:
  • If the Employee swaps shifts or gives up a shift in the Shift Pool, this will not also transfer the task. The person originally tagged will be removed and the task will be automatically available to the Locations, Departments, or Roles with access to the list for that task. 
  • Employees will be available to tag based on their Location and the timeframe of the task. In order to be tagged to a task, Employees must have published shifts within the Time Frame (Daily / Specific days of the week / Weekly / Monthly). The exception will be for One-time (non-repeating) tasks.

    For example, only an employee scheduled to work on the current day can be tagged to complete a daily task.
