Managers can create groups for each shift and then assign users to their appropriate group.
Time restrictions can be set by day and time, allowing for the creation of different groups for each shift or working group.
When a user is assigned to a time-restricted group, they will only be able to send and receive messages during their approved time frame.
Restrictions are enforced by Timezone regardless of where the user is located, assuring that employees are only contacted during business hours.
Managers can restrict employees’ access to receiving notifications and messages based on their physical location.
The site-based location restrictions can be set for a specific GPS or address location with a radius around it.
- As long as the user is within the approved location, they can read, send and receive messages and files.
- Location restrictions can be used in conjunction with time restrictions or independently.
GRACEFUL USER LOCKOUT
By default, when a manager enforces time and/or location restrictions, users can still open the Hotshot app and browse previous message history.
Managers have the option to make it so that when time and/or location restrictions are turned on, and a user attempts to open the app, the restricted user would not be able to see their previous message history, instead they would see a "graceful" lockout screen.
In emergency situations, managers can send a mass-communication message to all users.
The admin simply clicks a button and can write either an announcement or emergency alert.
- Managers would have an option to override time/location restrictions when setting emergency alerts. In cases of natural disaster or other high-risk situations, managers can communicate to their employees effectively.
