To quickly create employee schedules, many TimeForge managers rely on the TimeForge AutoScheduler and schedule forecasts, or build schedules by hand (one shift at a time). Other managers pre-build days on the schedule using collections of shifts, called templates.
Each TimeForge work schedule template contains one or more shifts, and can be used to quickly generate schedules for staff members. Each location (or store) can have many different employee schedule templates (as many as are needed), and the schedule templates can be used to build new schedules.
Some examples of employee work schedule templates:
- Friday server / waiter template
- Monday night football template
- Summer weekend lifeguard template
- Christmas retail template
You can also easily create weekly templates, for a one-click schedule creation.
Employee schedule templates.
Employee schedule templates can be built one shift at a time, or can be copied from other templates. Additionally, a work schedule template can be created from a pre-existing schedule, and if departments are enabled, each department will have individual schedule templates.
There are no limits to the number of schedule templates that can be created at a location.
Create a schedule template for any length of time.
Work schedule templates can be made for any length of days and for any department.
