Does SW email Early Bird customer after check in?

It does not.

 

It happens automatically 36 hours before the scheduled departure time.

 

You find out the result when you get your boarding pass.

If you have the app, you will get notified of your boarding position at 24 hours prior to the flight.

Do your have to check in on the app or online if you have an early bird purchase.  This is my first time flying Southwest.

Southwest assigns you a boarding spot 36 hours before flight time (ie: checks you in)

 

You then have to get your boarding pass (a different kind of check in) . You can do that however you like: kiosk, phone. printer somewhere starting 24 hours before departure time,.
