TimeForge is the most powerful and innovative labor management system on the market, and the Scheduling feature allows you to quickly and easily build employee schedules that work.
One groundbreaking feature of TimeForge Scheduling is the ShiftBuilder, which can automatically build a daily schedule for you based on your specifications. In other words, all you need to do is tell the ShiftBuilder that you need 3 bartenders from 7PM-12PM, or 5 Line Cooks from 6PM-10PM, and it will automatically build a shift with each of these positions filled out. All you have to do is assign an employee. Or, you could use the AutoScheduler or Bid Shifts instead.
With the ShiftBuilder, you can even generate shifts based on manager projections.
Using the Shift Builder is easy! Here’s how it’s done.
Enter the schedule information.
Boxes 1-4 are mandatory fields.
1-2. These options ask you to input a start and end date for the schedule to span.
