A location is a specific destination (such as a building or address) where employees work. Each account can have many different locations, and staff members can work at more than one location. TimeForge automatically handles collisions / conflicts between the various locations so that staff members are not scheduled to work at more than one location at the same time.
Get to the Setup Tab
First, navigate to the “Setup” tab.
Access the Locations List
The Location List can be accessed by clicking on the “Locations” sub-tab.
View the Location List
On the Location List, you can choose to add a new location, or edit an existing location.
You can also delete locations, if more than one location is present in your account.
Add or Edit Location Specific Information
Location specific information such as the location’s description / name, address, phone number, and hours of operation should be edited or added at this location.
Other important information can be entered on this screen as well.
After creating the second location, many of the TimeForge screens will change to allow you to manage more than one store (above store scheduling). For example, positions and sales types must be added at the “corporate” level.
TimeForge Location Settings
Many of the TimeForge settings can be changed at the location level. Settings such as:
- Base overtime rate
- Allow employees to run reports
- Schedule employees that have approved time off
- Integrate TimeForge with another program (such as an accounting program, or a Point of Sale system)
- Including breaks as part of the labor calculations
