  1. 7. MESSAGING  


Instead of sending emails it is much safer to use Xpert Suite Messaging function. We strongly advise using this, because information about Sick leave is privacy sensitive.  

Xpert Suite’s messaging function can be used to safely communicate directly with colleagues. To access it, use the search function and select the relevant employee case file. Once you are in the case file, you can see the message function under the tab furthest to the right.  



The messages screen: 



The categories that make up the message are the following: 

  • Subject 

  • Participants: the person you want to message needs to be added to the list of participants. When you create the message, you are automatically added as a participant. 

  • Message 

  • Add File: Use this function to upload any documents from your computer or from Xpert Suite. 


Once you have added the participants and filled all the relevant fields, click on START DIALOGUE. The messaging system sends a link to the recipient so that they can login to the messaging system and respond.  


Remember, only participants of the dialogue can read the content. To share the information in the dialogue it is possible to share the dialog within the case file (choose share checkbox).  


When you want to sign a document there are two options: via SMS code or via Digital signature. 

Choose the document you want to sign within the Workflow Case file. 

When the document is signed this will be visible when you open the document as PDF.  



The use of SMS code signing is very useful when both signing parties are not physical together. 

  1. 1 Choose Signature by SMS 

  1. 2 Automatically a dialogue will be started within the tab Messages 

  1. 3 Fill in who needs to sign the document and push Send. 

  1. 4 As a manager you can sign the document by pressing Signing. Fill in your mobile phone number and you will receive a SMS code. Save and you have signed the document. 

  1. 5 The employee will receive an invitation in his mailbox to log in. 

  1. 6 The employee needs to do the following steps only once: 

  1. a Register to the messaging service 

  1. b Agree to the terms of use and log in 

  1. c Choose a password 

  1. d Fill in their mobile phone number 

  1. e Fill in their personal data 

  1. 7 The employee enters their messages. Here they can read the document and also sign it.  


Digital Signature can be used when both parties have a user account or when both parties sit physically next to each other. With your mouse you can make the signature. 


  1. 8. SETTINGS 

The Settings button is located on the bottom left of your XS screen. In the Settings section you can customise XS to match your needs. In the following section we will cover some of these features. 




To change language to your own preferred language the browser will ask you whether you want to refresh the page, choose refresh and next choose to leave the page. The browser page will refresh itself and Xpert Suite will be changed to your preferred language.   



When an user is out of office for a period of time, there is the possibility to assign a deputy within XS. In the absence of the user, the deputy can access to the employee files and tasks.  

Note! You can only assign a deputy to someone who already has authorisation to Xpert suite, i.e. another manager. It is not possible or appropriate to assign this function a team member.
