Tagging Employees to Tasks
If you have a specific employee in mind for a task, you can tag them to it directly from the 7tasks and 7shifts mobile apps. Tagging your employees can increase your task completion rate by 135%!
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.
1. Within the 7tasks app, you can see the most recent activity for a task. To access this, tap on the three-dotted icon just to the right of the task you wish to view.
2. Within the task details, you'll see a section below with the most recent activity related to that task.
3. Once a task is completed, you will see the name of the employee and the time they completed the task.
