TimeForge is a great tool for managers, and it is much more than just an employee scheduling system. TimeForge works well for both independently owned and operated businesses, as well as chain concepts.
TimeForge has two separate operating “levels” depending on the desired usage within your organization.
The “Location” level of TimeForge is used when examining the labor or employee schedules at a single location, store, or unit.
The “Corporate” level of TimeForge is used when multiple locations are being used.
When operated by a business with more than one location / store / unit, some of the functionality of TimeForge is moved to the “Corporate” level to ensure consistent labor reports and employee schedules among all of the business locations.
The TimeForge Corporation Level – Multiple Locations
When operating with multiple locations inside of TimeForge, a drop-down box will appear in the top right hand corner. This drop-down box allows managers and supervisors to switch locations with a single click.
In addition to the drop-down box, a link, designated “Corporation Settings,” is available to allow manipulation of “Corporate” level data.

At the “Corporation Level,” many of the menus are similar to the menus at the “Location” level, including the ability to change position names, set request types and certifications, configure sales forecasting, and manage departments across all locations.
Additional capabilities include multi-location / multi-store reports, a corporate level dashboard (displayed above) with indicators for labor costs, posted schedules, and shift satisfaction among employees.
