Managing Inactive Employees

Making an Employee inactive means:

  • The Employee can no longer login to their 7shifts account
  • They won't receive further notifications from you via 7shifts
  • You won't be able to schedule them into the future
  • All of their information (past shifts, contact information, etc) is still saved in your account to reference

To make an Employee inactive

1. Go to the More menu > Employees

2. Click on the three dots beside the Employee's name and select 'Deactivate Employee'. 

3. Select a reason for deactivation, whether you would rehire that employee, and enter optional comments. These details will be viewable by Admins, Managers, or Assistant Managers on the Inactive Employee page.

While Employees are inactive, you are able to:
1. Edit their profile by clicking on their name highlighted in blue.

2. View the reason they were made inactive, whether you would rehire them, and any comments entered when they were deactivated.

3. Filter the inactive Employee list by the deactivation reason and rehire status.

4. Sort the list of inactive Employees by name or deactivation date.


To reactivate an Employee

1. If you need to reactivate an Employee you have previously deactivated, click the 'Reactivate' button to the right of the Employee. 

2. Alternatively, you can reactivate an Employee, while editing their Employee profile, by clicking 'Reactivate' 

When you reactivate an inactive Employee, they will be able to login immediately using the same login information they used previously. You can begin scheduling them again right away.
