How to AddNotifications in Scissortail HCM

Hi I’m Rhonda Siex with CS3 Technology and today I’m going to show you how to add notifications in Scissortail HCM.

So, the first thing we want to do is Click the “hamburger” in top left corner of the screen (three lines). When you hover over it, it says “Show Menu.” So let’s click that.

One thing I like to do is use the Quick Search Box and just type in what I’m looking for.  When I type in “Notifications”, I get a list of items.  The one that I want, today, is the one with the words Global Setup next to it.  You will have to click on the words to get it open.  By doing this, it took me to the Company Notifications Screen.  

On this screen, we can see the list of notifications that are already setup and if they are active.

Click the New Notification button (Top Right) to add a new notification.  Here, is where we find the list of items that we can choose from to modify for our purpose. Today, I’m choosing the Checklist Reminder.

Now, I add the name of the Notification and I also copy this to the Subject of the Email notification. Of course we need to remember to add the from email address that will always be Then, you need to setup the body of your email using the available tags in the lower window.  These tags help you personalize the email for each recipient by merging their information into this email template.  Remember to add the “login”tag which will insert a link to  Scissortail HCM for the receiver as well.

Next, I go to Recipients section to select the box for the Employee. This will automatically send each employee the notification when achecklist has been added to their account.

Now, I go to the When section to set the parameters for when the notification should be triggered.  

Once everything has been setup, Click Save.

It’s just that easy!
