Skill levels in TimeForge allow managers and supervisors to rank staff members based on experience at each position. Skill levels can be used to differentiate experienced employees from the less experienced or newly hired employees. The higher the skill level, the more experienced the staff member. You can even use the skill level to help create an employee schedule.
Employees who work more than one position or job can have multiple skill levels. For example, a staff member may be an excellent cashier (with a skill level of 5), but may be a manager in training (with a skill level of 2).
Employees can be ranked by skill levels for each position
Skill levels can be used to rank employees for each position that the staff member can work.
Shifts can require certain skill levels.
Each shift may require employees of different skills, which can be set at the template or schedule level.
For example, on Saturday and Sunday, a pool or aquatics center may need a very skilled head lifeguard (skill level 5), but on other days, perhaps a slightly less skilled life guard will suffice (a skill level 3 or 4).
To designate a skill level requirement for a shift, click the pencil icon next to the shift you are creating to “Edit Shift Information” and the above options will appear.
