The Lock Icon

On the Daily View, the lock icon signals whether you have an employee assigned to a shift, or if the AutoScheduler can change the shift.

The lock icon is green (locked) when you have a staff member assigned, and you don’t want the AutoScheduler to reassign that shift. The icon is red (unlocked) when you don’t have an employee “locked” into the shift, and the AutoScheduler will be able to reassign the shift. When the icon is red (unlocked, no assigned employee) the shift will be AutoScheduled.

Lock or unclock the icon.

Lock or unclock the icon.

To change a lock icon from “locked” to “unlocked”, simply click on it. If you leave the lock icon “unlocked”, the shift will be AutoScheduled, and may be changed.

To change a lock icon from “unlocked” to “locked”, first assign an employee to that shift, then click on the icon. This will “lock” the employee into the shift, and the AutoScheduler will not change this shift.

heartWhat some of our clients have to say ...

We are one year into it now, well past being enamored with the newness. We are married to TimeForge. It's as essential to us now as any of our management tools today, and we very happy about that.- Steve @ Hermosa Cyclery
We really like the program so far. I know that it is geared towards restaurants, but we are a real estate company and we love it because it is inexpensive and it is so easy to use.- Nicole @ Exit Premier Realty
The Timeforge scheduling system has not only increased our efficiency tremendously; decreased the errors in what is normally an error prone environment; it has also saved us ten times what it costs us each month.- Michael @ Tiara Cafe
I would highly recommend TimeForge to anyone making work schedules. ... What used to take 1-2 hours, now takes 15 minutes. The reports section is comprehensive and useful.- Lawrence Payne @ Mid Pacific Country Club
I've been really pleased with this latest version of TimeForge. I'm really getting familiar with this program and its become a great time saver! Keep up the good work!- Loren @ Fresh Produce
Before using TimeForge, creating a schedule took 2 hours. With TimeForge, it takes less than 10 minutes.- Gail @ Kerr Drug
