Planning a roster is fun, easy and like everything else in TimeFiler, accessible from almost any internet device. The same real-time award interpretation used for timesheets is used to cost the roster and highlight issues such as overtime, excessive hours and anything else managers should be aware of – so you and your users know exactly what the roster will cost and what can be done to minimise it.
Plan your staff roster
Most employees will have a permanent pattern assigned to their profile as their ‘baseline’ roster. Your managers can then make changes as required and add rosters for casual and variable employees.
Create and assign template roster patterns to employees
Patterns can be as simple or complex as you need
24 hour/7 day operation? No problem.
Flexible roster layout allows you to capture exactly what you need to suit your roster requirements
Your roster can be compared to a wide variety of key indicators, including your wage budget, sales targets, required personnel, so that Managers can produce a cost-effective roster that meets operational requirements.
Accurate roster costing – including the ability to accrue costs such as leave liability and other costs of employment
Flexible options for reporting indicators to managers, highlighting areas of concern and issues to address
Our customers communicate the roster to employees in a variety of ways to suit their requirements. Use anything from a smartphone or any almost other internet device, to more traditional methods such as printed reports.
Configure the roster views to show exactly what you want your users to view
Employees working for multiple managers automatically appear on each Manager’s roster (not just their ‘default’ Manager)
Some of our customers already have a system for scheduling staff, typically as part of a wider scheduling system (such as hospital ward scheduling). We can work with you to import that roster directly into TimeFiler, where it can be viewed, reported and costed in exactly the same way as the native TimeFiler roster.
Imported rosters can be broadcast the same as native TimeFiler rosters
Automated import using our specialist synchronisation tools
Employees can either make leave requests using TimeFiler, or we can even import the leave requests into TimeFiler, too.
