Modifying Positions in a Department

While using TimeForge, you may want to change the positions in a department to enable employees to view department schedules, to manage the labor differently, or to easily manage sales and labor metrics. Employees will not be able to see a schedule for a department that is not associated with their position. The position(s) associated with each department can be set up according to your business’ needs.

For example, if Joe is a “Craft Manager” (position) in “Crafts” (department), and all “Craft Managers” are assigned to the “Crafts” department, then Joe won’t be able to see what’s going on in the “Produce” department, unless “Craft Managers” are assigned to both “Crafts” and “Produce”.

If you don’t want to assign all of the employees associated with that position to a department, you can add them individually. So, if you only want Joe to work in “Produce”, you can reassign Joe without assigning all the other “Craft Managers” to “Produce”. Here are the instructions for reassigning department positions.

Go to the “Departments” page.

Go to the "Departments" page.
  • Log in
  • Hover over the “Set Up” tab
  • Click “Departments”.

Select a department.

Click “Edit” next to the department you’d like to edit. You can also add a new department and edit the positions the same way.

Edit the positions in the department.

Click the middle “Positions” tab on the department information page. Click the checkbox next to any position you would like to add to this department.

Click “Save” when you’re finished.

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
