3D Touch is available for Deputy on iOS, giving you quick and easy ways to perform basic tasks right from the home screen.

To access the 3D Touch menu:

1. Hard-press the Deputy app icon on your home screen.

2. From the menu that appears under the app icon select your required function.

You can do the following from the 3D Touch menu:

Start Shift

You will be able to start your shift right away from the 3D Touch menu. When you select this option, the Deputy app will open. It will then retrieve your location (for timesheet and time-theft purposes) and start your shift.

End Shift

Tapping the ‘End Shift’ button will immediately end your shift.

This option will only appear in the 3D Touch menu after a shift has been started.

Start Break

Select this to start your break. To end your break, simply select ‘End Break’ in the 3D Touch menu. The ‘End Break’ option will only appear if you have previously selected ‘Start Break’ in the same shift.

This option will only appear in the 3D Touch menu after a shift has been started.

Write a Post

Post to the News Feed

This will bring you to the News Feed tab, where you can create a News Feed post. Simply select the location you want to post to, type your message and press ‘Post’ in the top right-hand corner.

Post Photos

Take/Select and post

You can select this option if you want to include a photo in your News Feed post. This will open up your Gallery. You can either select an existing photo in your phone's photo gallery, or you can click the camera icon to take a photo. Much like posting a News Feed post, you must then select a location and insert text into the post. When you are finished, tap ‘Post’ in the top right-hand corner and you’re done!
