TimeForge has the functionality to easily make and view bid shifts while you are building a schedule. Bid Shifts are a way to allow employees to build their own schedule, saving you the hassle of needing to assign staff members to every shift. You can simply set a bid shift for a specific time and date, and let your employees build part of their own schedule.
For example,a bid shift, can be picked up by several qualified employees – providing you with a choice of multiple employees who want to work that shift. Bid shifts are then approved by management, and employees can choose to be notified, or not, about the approval (or denial) of the shift.
Use TimeForge Bid Shifts to make quick work of your labor schedule.
Note: Bid Shifts can be seen by staff members on the Shift Swap page.
