have (someone) (do something)
When you are in charge of someone, like an employee, you can "have them" do things for you. For example:
I'll have my assistant send you those documents later today.
Why don't we have the waiter bring us the check now so that we can leave quickly?
You also use this expression to ask someone to pass a message like this:
Can you have her call me?
This phrase appears in these lessons:
- “I don't know exactly how much it'll be. I'll call the office and have them crunch the numbers.”
- “Can you have him call me when he gets in?”
- “I’m going to have you shadow Narisa for the first few days until you’re comfortable working on your own. How does that sound?”
- “Let me send an email to I.T. and have them give you access to the network.”
- “I’m going to have you work with Martin for the first month or so.”
