Deputy Smartphone Apps

We’ve got a Deputy smartphone app that you can use to start and end your shift.

iPhone

You can download the Deputy smartphone app from here: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/deputy-ultimate-employee-scheduling/id477070330?mt=8

To start your shift, simply open up the Deputy app. Simply navigate yourself to the ‘Me’ tab and tap ‘Start Shift’.

3D Touch

We now have support for 3D Touch on supported iPhones. All you need to do is hard-press the Deputy app icon on the home screen and the 3D Touch menu will appear. From here, you can tap ‘Start Shift’ or ‘End Shift’. You can also start and end your break, and post News Feed posts from the 3D Touch menu. You can watch a video on how it works here: https://vimeo.com/177638571

Apple Watch

You can also Start and End your shift via an Apple Watch. You will need to pair your watch with your iPhone, then find the Deputy app in the Watch application. Then navigate your way to the ‘Me’ tab and hit ‘Start Shift’ or ‘End Shift’.

You can also end your shift, and start and end your break from the same screen.

Android

You can download the Deputy Android app from here:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.deputy.android&hl=en

To start your shift, simply navigate to the ‘Me’ tab, and tap ‘Start Shift’ or ‘End Shift’. You can also start and end your break from this screen.

Deputy iPad Kiosk

The Deputy iPad Kiosk is an iPad app that your System Administrator can set up. To start and end your shift, you will need a Deputy Kiosk PIN, which was sent to you in the Deputy invite email.

To start and end your shift on the Deputy iPad Kiosk, locate your name on the left side of the screen. Tap your name and enter your Kiosk PIN.

After entering your PIN, simply tap ‘Start Shift’ in the top right corner.

The Kiosk will then take a photo for timesheet verification purposes. After the screen confirms that the shift has been started or ended, tap the ‘Log Out’ button in the bottom left to ensure no one else can see your tasks or start and end your shift prematurely.

Web Browser

You can also start and end your shift via a web browser. We recommend you use the latest version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as these browsers provide the best experience for using Deputy.

Log into Deputy by visiting once.deputy.com and entering in your email and password.

Once you are logged in, navigate to the ‘Me’ tab. From here, simply click ‘Start Shift’ in the top right hand corner of the screen.
