TimeForge positions are similar to job descriptions, position codes, or job codes that are available with many Point of Sale systems. In Timeforge, employees can work as many positions as necessary.
Each position can have its own name / description, pay rate (and pay scale), color (for drawing on graphs), and overtime calculation. In addition, positions can have payroll identifiers (for use in some payroll programs), stations / sections (useful when assigning shifts to employees), and multi-level pay rates.
- Stations / sections are used to identify areas of work for a specific position or job code. For example, a “Waiter” or “Server” Position might have several sections that correspond to tables at a restaurant, such as “Section 1“, “Section 2“, etc…
- Multi-level Pay Rates can be used to pay staff members at varied rates throughout the work day. For example, a “Waiter” or “Server” Position might receive a normal hourly rate of $2.13 from the hours of 10am and 11pm. However, prior to 10am, employees working as a Server may receive $7.35
When used at the “Corporation Level” within TimeForge, Positions are available at every location. However, each location can have individual base pay rates, multi-level pay rates, sections / stations, overtime calculations, and colors. This functionality enables business with multiple locations to easily perform labor management with a single, simple tool – TimeForge!
The “Positions” page.

Position information can easily be configured inside TimeForge, and each position can have an unlimited number of Stations / Sections, and Pay Rates.
Note: Overtime calculations can be based on time and a half (1.5x), double time (2.0x), or California Overtime (a combination of 1.5x and 2.0x overtime).
