Frequently asked questions

Do you cover pre-boarding activities?

Yes, we even have a collection of pre-filled activities covering this critical preparation phase. You will be able to assign tasks to HR and IT to orchestrate the weeks before the newcomer's arrival automatically.

Will the activities that I create within Softstart automatically generate calendar events?

Yes! That is a powerful feature that we are proud to offer you. By simply selecting the right participants for an activity, Softstart will recommend times when all participants are available. Choose the most convenient availability, and all invitations will be sent automatically behind the scene.

Can we use two email addresses for on user (personal email and then switch to their work one)?

Yes. Pre-boarding sometimes involves communicating with a newcomer that doesn’t have their corporate email yet. Both personal and professional email addresses are supported to facilitate the transition before day 1.

Can I chat with a support team?

Our Support Team is available Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time, by email at or through live chat.
