In order to receive email notifications as an admin about status notes, published weekly schedules, changes, etc. the administrator has to be assigned to a department within a location. It is sufficient if the administrator is assigned to only one department, however it is important that he / she is assigned to at least one department within each location.
Go to the menu item "departments" and click on "manage employees" in the desired department.
Now you can chose yourself from the list on the right or look for yourself in the search field. Click on "add" next to your name to assign yourself to the department.
