The email address does not necessarily need to be filled in when adding an employee however it will be needed if you decide to publish the schedule by email. If a message “this email is already used” crops up, please reach out to the help center (blue bubble top bottom far right hand side of your Skello).

💡 Once the employee file has been created, you can search for the employee by last name, first name, email, telephone number or payroll number.
