How your messages are organized

The default view is your inbox. On the left you can see some icons:

Here's what the icons mean:

  • Tray - your inbox (the default view)
  • Box - click to see your archived messages
  • Clock - click to see your 'snoozed' messages
  • Checkmark - click to see your sent messages
  • Document - click to see your draft messages
  • Trash can - click to see your deleted messages

You can archive or snooze a message by clicking on the box or clock icons that are at the top when you open a message.

You cannot send new messages from your inbox, but you can reply to messages that a crew manager or manning agent have sent you.

How to read and reply to messages

Click on a message in your inbox. The message and any replies to it you have sent will open on your screen. To make more room for messages, click the arrow at the bottom of the page to shrink the icon menu:

  • The message that is highlighted in blue is the message you are reading.
  • The details of the employer or manning agent who sent the message are on the right hand side.
  • Click the Reply button to send a message.

When you click the Reply button you will see this:

Here you can:

  • Type your reply into the empty box. (The email address is filled in automatically.)
  • Save the message as a draft to finish later, cancel it, or send it.
  • Attach a file or document by clicking Add another file.

How to create a new tag for a message

Tags help you organize your inbox. When you have a message thread open, click the tag icon at the top of the page:

Your tag will now show under the icons and in the message you have tagged:
