Viewing Open Shifts

With TimeForge, there are many ways to create an employee schedule. For instance, you can build an employee schedule by position and leave certain shifts open (unassigned). That way, you can have your positions scheduled and go back later to assign specific employees to those open shifts. To make this process even easier, you can use the shift builder tool, which will also give you open shifts that you can later assign.

Navigate to your schedule reports.

To view open shifts,

  • log in
  • hover over “Schedules”
  • select “Reports”

Locate “Unassigned (Open) Shifts” reports.

TimeForge has two options for viewing open shifts: by date and by position. Locate which report you would like to view and click on it.

Note: Reports are in alphabetical order.

Choose which departments you would like included in the report.

After clicking on the report, you will be shown a list of available departments. Check the boxes next to the departments you would like to have included in the report.

Choose the schedule for which you would like to run the report.

Below the list of departments will be a list of schedules. Check the boxes next to the schedules for which you would like to run the report.

Or, choose the date range for which you would like to run the report.

1. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and locate the blue link titled “Run Report By Date Range”.

2. Then, choose your date range (either predefined or manually entered).

Choose the report format.

Below the list of schedules or date range specifications are formatting options for the report. You may view it either as a PDF or XLS file. You may also adjust the size of the font on the report.

Run the report.

Click the “Run Report” button located at the bottom of the page.

View open shifts.

You may now view your open shift report with the appropriate specifications.
