To keep track of tasks and events, you can have push notifications sent to the Fingercheck app for administrators, supervisors, or employees. Or you can have email reminders sent automatically. For example, you might want a notification sent to the employee culture committee when an employee’s work anniversary is coming up. Or a trucking company might want reminders sent to drivers about renewing their license.


In this article, you will learn:


How to send a reminder notification

  1. Log in to your Fingercheck account as an Administrator.

  2. Click the SETUP tab > HR > Notification Rules.

  3. Click Add.

    You can use the formatting options to make the text more readable and scannable. When you click in the field, a list of variables appears. Use these variables in the message to personalize it. In the example below, {0} is replaced by the employee’s first name in the message.
