Learn about the new Rotaready sign-in page

in Announcements on July 25, 2018

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be migrating accounts to the new Rotaready sign-in page. There’s nothing you need to do. It will look a little different, but still works in the same way.

What’s the same

  • The steps to sign-in haven’t changed. You enter the same information as usual, such as your username or email address, and password.

What changed and why?

We’ve re-engineered the sign-in experience and added new features to make accessing (and recovering access to) your account easier and more secure:

  • Ditch the username! You can now sign-in with your email address. If there isn’t one associated with your account, you’ll be prompted to enter one when you next sign-in.
  • ‘Forgot Organisation’ helps you rediscover your Rotaready Organisation Name.
  • ‘Forgot Password’ has been redesigned to be faster and more secure.
  • Introducing support for Single Sign On (SSO).
  • Consistent sign-in experience across web browsers and the Rotaready mobile apps.
  • A clean, modern design, making it faster to sign-in.

Our changes also pave the way for future functionality, such as Two Factor Authentication (2FA).

How to help keep your account secure

There are a few simple ways to improve your account’s security:

  • Add an email address and a mobile phone number, so you can recover access to your account.
  • Use a password that’s difficult to guess, with a combination of numbers, letters and symbols.
  • Always sign-out when you’re finished, especially if you’re using a shared or office computer.

If you sign in on a device that’s not yours (like a shared or office computer), learn how to browse in private to help protect your account.

I’m proud to announce the release of the most demanded feature we’ve ever had on the Rotaready development list: shift swaps! Now available to everyone.

We spent time with some of our customers to understand how shift swaps work in practice before diving head-first into mock-ups, sketches, doodles and code. This article takes a look at the things we learned and how we went about integrating swaps with Rotaready.

Welcome to Shift Up A Gear!

(We hope you’re enjoying the wordplay as much as we are…)

We’ll be posting here regularly with the latest news from Rotaready Towers. From feature announcements, to opinion on current affairs, to code snippets, we’ll be commenting, boasting and ranting about it all.

You’ll also find featured articles on Rotaready success stories, how we leverage the latest technology to solve some of the biggest workforce management problems, and a behind-the-scenes look at what makes our automated rota building algorithm so damn clever.
