Depending on what information needs to be communicated to employees (schedule changes, upcoming job start time), there may already be a notification available in ClockShark. Feel free to check out http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1133746-using-notifications to see how those notifications suit your needs. :)
Regarding the ability to craft particular messages and send them directly through the app, this is a request that we are hearing more-and-more. I’m sharing this with our development team, and we’ll continue to monitor the votes here for this idea, so we can know when we should add that for you.
If you have any other ideas or suggestions, you can let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love to hear how we can improve ClockShark for you.Jeff commented
Messaging feature to employees
Hi there, we’re always working on ways to reduce the battery usage of ClockShark. In general most devices are not dramatically affected by battery drain using ClockShark. Some older devices and devices with compromised batteries will have this problem more than others. As the technologies and devices evolve we will always strive to provide the best balance of performance, utility and battery usage. Any further thoughts or feedback are welcome, as always! We love hearing the feedback because we build ClockShark for all of you!
