Adding a new Staff Member
Adding more staff members is a great way to get acquainted with Re:amaze's notifications system and message distribution system. Each staff member can easily receive notifications for incoming messages and customize their own experience inside the Re:amaze dashboard.
To add a new staff user, navigate to Settings > Staff. Then, click "Add Staff".
Provide the following information for your new Staff Member:
- Staff Name: Name of the staff user displayed internally within Re:amaze.
- Display Name: Name of the staff user that will be shown to customers.
- Email Address: Used for logging in and staff notifications.
- Department(s): The department or staff group you want the user to be a part of (supported on Plus plans).
- Role: The role and permissions that you want to assign the user (supported on Plus plans).
NOTE: Ideally, the Email Address will be the staff’s personal work email. The staff user will also have the option to use a different email address for email notifications in Settings > Personal Settings > Profile.
Re:amaze is a shared inbox so when customers email
email@example.com, the message is distributed to individual staff members assigned to that channel. When a staff replies, you can choose to show either the staff’s display name, your email channel name, or your brand name as the sender name ("From" name), making for a more personable experience. However, the staff email address is purely internal and will not be seen by customers.
If a staff member didn’t receive their account invitation email
When you add a new staff user, they will receive a welcome email from firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow them to log in and create a password.
If a staff member didn’t receive the welcome email, please have them check their spam or junk folder. You can also re-send the invite by going to the Settings > Staff > Actions > Re-invite. If it still doesn’t work, please reach out to email@example.com or send us a chat for further assistance.
