Findd allows you to receive notifications by email, the Grandd Central "app", or through device push notifications on various things such as missing punches, exceptions, or schedule reminders.

There are two types of notifications you can set up; personal notifications and subscription notifications. Below is the difference between the two and how to set them up.


Personal Notifications

If you want to see notifications for yourself, such as missing punches, time off requests, or to get schedule reminders, you will set up personal notifications.

Note: Personal Notifications only apply to Employees and are not available to those who are only Account Users. Account Users who are also employees will have access to this type of notification through the "Is Employee" toggle in their Account User Profile.
