Adding Managers

If you need to set up a member of your team as a Manager in 7shifts, here are a few steps that you can take to update their user profile in the account.

You can also choose to make them a 'Manager' or 'Assistant Manager' user type. The only difference between the two is in terms of hierarchy since a Manager is more senior than an Assistant Manager.

⚠️ Please note:

  • Only Admins can add Managers.
  • Admins and Managers can both add Assistant Managers or Employees. 
  • Assistant Managers are only able to add Employees.

⚠️ Please note:

Managers and Assistant Managers will be restricted to the Locations and Departments they're assigned to, so be sure to assign them to all of their respective Departments. This way they can create Schedules for their Employees and manage any relevant requests/notifications within the account.

⚠️ Tip:

You can grant a Manager or Assistant Manager access to multiple Department Schedules without having their name appear under all of them. If they only need to appear on the Schedules page for certain Departments, you can enable/disable the 'Appear on schedule' option under their user profile.
