You can create and modify accounts for your employees by yourself. Employees can manage locations, entrances or other employees and invite visitors based on their assigned role. In this article, you will learn how to set up your employees properly.
Bulk-import of employees
Especially for the first set up, you might have to create a lot of new employees. To make this easier, you can also upload a list (Microsoft Excel or .csv) of employees using the ZipKey Dashboard. To find out more, please read this article: How can I invite multiple employees at once?
Create new employees
To manually create new employees, please select "Employees" from the sidebar navigation and then click "+ New Employee" at the top right.
Enter all the data of the employee in the popup. Please also select the location for this employee and their role.
After you clicked "Create employee" the newly created employee will receive an email with their invitation to ZipKey.
To modify employees, select the employee you want to edit from the list of employees by clicking on them.
This will open a detail popup with the employee details. Here, you can edit or even delete the user. Please click on "edit".
In the next popup, you can modify the information of this user. The user's name and email address are locked and cannot be edited anymore. You can also change the location and role of the employee here.
When you are done with the modifications, please click "Save changes".
Notifications via SMS
If you enter a mobile phone number for an employee, they will also receive notifications when their visitors arrive via SMS.
