Creating a Weekly Work Schedule Template

In TimeForge, employee schedule templates are periods of time that reflect a single day of a schedule. You can use a schedule template to organize your labor requirements in advance of the actual schedule, allowing you to easily anticipate upcoming staffing needs. This is also helpful if you use TimeForge Sales to project you weekly sales because it can further help you control your labor costs. In other words, creating an employee schedule template will allow you to rapidly create a schedule, as long as you spend a little time in advance thinking about your labor needs.

After creating a week long schedule, make a template out of the entire schedule.

Use Schedule Templates to quickly and easily manage your workforce, and reduce the amount of time that you must spend changing the schedule on a weekly basis.
