How do I manage my Lone Working with Google Assistant?

Once the Ok Alone lone worker action is installed, here is how you can use it when working alone to manage your status with any Google Assistant.

1. Set Your Lone Worker ID

To link Google Assistant to your smart speaker you need to tell it your worker ID. This is a 5/6 digit pin number. To do this say
“Tell Work Alone my worker ID is …” followed by your worker ID

2. Start Your Lone Working Shift

Once Google Assistant is linked to your Ok Alone account, start your shift by saying
“Ask Work Alone to start my shift”

Your shift will then be started and Google Assistant will say your check in time.
