Broadcasting Messages

Landing Broadcasting Messages

This provides the HR team/administrator to broadcast messages to employees immediately after successful login. This ensures the employee read the message and also record the acknowledgement that the employee has read the message. The message is configured by the administrator or delegated admin (HR department) with the following options

  1. Frequency
  2. Repetition
  3. Message

Frequency provides the option to configure the interval at which the message needs to be displayed i.e. daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, only once or only for a day. Whereas repetition indicates whether to show the message only once for the selected frequency or on every login. The message can be configured using a rich HTML editor.

Even though the message can be sent through email but there is no way to know whether the message was read and if read when it was read by the employee. With the Landing Broadcast feature, gControl records the time of the message being read by the employee.

Agreement Broadcasting Messages

The HR team/administrator can use this feature to enforce new employees/existing employees to view the agreement and obtained their consent in a seamless manner. The feature provides a simple way to include the content of the agreement through a rich HTML editor.

In case of disagreement, the employee is not allowed to go to the Gmail page. gControl records the data and time of employee behavior.
