Overview

If you have multiple employers that use When I Work, you can switch between workplaces without having to log out. As an added benefit, email notifications are sent to one email address.

Registering with another workplace

Your email address associates you to your workplace. If you want to quickly switch between workplaces without logging out, use the same email address for all of your workplaces.

  • When you start a new job, give your manager the same email address you’ve been using for other workplaces.
  • If your manager invites you to join the workplace via text message, make sure to register with the same email address.
Using Different Email Addresses

If you’re registered to multiple workplaces with different email addresses, log out and log back in to switch workplaces.

If you need to adjust your alert preferences, check out Setting Alert Preferences.
