View and edit shifts

In TimeForge, employee schedules are a collection of many shifts, and each shift is assigned a corresponding start and end time, position or job code, and an employee. Other information can be included with each shift, such as whether the shift is for an “extra” staff member, or the name or number of the section or station being worked by the employee (for more info on schedules, see our article on how to View employee schedules).

Shifts can easily be created for a specific day on the schedule or copied to other days on the schedule. Shifts can also be grouped together into days on the schedule, and then can be used to create a template for future schedules. Additionally, shifts can be reassigned to other employees, and are used by the TimeForge ShiftBuilder to estimate anticipated needs for schedules in the future.

Select a schedule

Click the Edit button on an upcoming or past schedule to view its details.

Select a view: Monthly, Weekly, or Daily

By default, TimeForge will show you the Weekly View for that schedule (unless you change your default setting under your profile!), but you can also get a graphical representation of the staffing load for that day by selecting Daily View in the upper right corner.

On the left: list of shifts

On the left side of the page will be your list of shifts, with start and end times, employees, and their positions.

On the right: graphic representation

And on the right side will be the corresponding graph.

Edit as necessary – your changes will automatically save in real time!

Your changes will save in real time. To return to the Daily View when you’re done, you can click the Finished! button at the bottom of the page.

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
