What Is the Flag Wall and What Can I Do Here?

The Flag Wall is a news feed of notifications about your employees. On the Flag Wall, notifications are divided into five category tabs, covering: employee attendance, events in your company calendar, requirements submitted by employees, changes to your employee schedules and any photo verification issues that may require your attention.

Important: HR or Admin are the only people who can see the Flag Wall page.
