This section will take you through the various options for creating new employees.  

You can't create a schedule without employees!  
We provide a number of options when it comes to adding employees to the system; each of which comes with its own time saving benefits but the same end result. 

  Remind your employees to download Busy Bunny Employee, where they can access schedules, time cards, and have the ability to clock in and out for shifts and breaks.  They will also have the option to request to join your company, saving you even more time in the setup process!


Adding employees is simple.

  1. Go to Store by clicking on the settings icon [] in the bottom navigation.
  2. Select Employees [].
  3. Click on the add icon [+] on the top right.

You will then be given a few easy options to add an employee.


Add Manually

You can start to add employee and schedule them right away. The value of adding manually is that you don't have to wait for the employee to register to begin building a schedule.

  1. Select Add Manually from the options to add an employee
  2. Enter Employee Name
  3. Enter Start Date
  4. Enter Hourly Wage
  5. Click Add

 Note that employees created manually will not have access to view their schedule until they download the Busy Bunny Employee app. For more information on the Employee app, please follow the instruction as Busy Bunny Employee App.

Add by Company ID

Your site is part of the company that you set up during registration, and you are assigned a unique Company ID, that your employee can enter using Busy Bunny Employee app to join the Company. The value of using  Company ID is that the employee does most of the work.  You simply provide them your Company ID and accept their request to join.

  1. Select Add by Company ID.
  2. The Company ID will be shown along with a QR code:

  3. You can present this information to your employee to scan or enter using the Busy Bunny Employee app. (For more details see: Busy Bunny Employee app).
  4. Once the employee scans or enters this code within their Employee app, you will receive a notification with a request for that employee to join your company.
  5. Click Accept to accept the request, or Deny to deny the request to complete adding the employee.

Add by Employee ID

Just like the Company ID, each employee is assigned unique Employee ID when they register on the Employee App. The value of using Employee ID is that you simply scan their Employee ID and the employe information is set up in your account, ready to be scheduled.

  1. Click Add by Employee ID. Employee ID can be obtained from the employee through their account.
  2. Scan the QR Code to scan the QR code presented by the employee

That's it!

Once the employee has been added they are now available on the Manager app to schedule them and run reports on their shifts. A few recommendations and notes:

 Make sure to assign the employee to a site to be able to schedule shifts for that site

 There are many settings related to your scheduling and notification rules. See more details at Settings.
