We continue to improve our product features and striving to help your staff have all the necessary information to carry out their shifts.

You can attach files to your Locations in Deputy. Location notes are a useful way to provide additional context when employees carry out their shifts across different locations.

In this article we will cover:

  • Attach images and PDF documents to Location
  • Attachment privacy
  • View location notes and attachments

Attach Images & PDF documents

You can attach up to 5 files to each location, as well as add up to 5000 characters in the location notes field. ( Accepted file formats: JPEG, PNG, PDF. 10MB per file.)

Great examples of attachments that can empower your staff on the ground:

  • Opening and closing procedures of a store to help staff open the venue or close securely at end of the day.
  • COVID-19 Safety plan, to provide staff with the necessary protocols when operating their store in these unprecedented times.
  • Delivery & warehouse guidelines which ensure staff are equipped to handle the busy days when they expect supplies delivery.
  • Upcoming menu for staff to get familiar with ahead of time.
  • Care plans, typically uploaded by healthcare customers that setup locations as clients. This provides their staff with care guidelines to guarantee a high quality of care.
