TimeForge is a powerful, but easy to use, labor management platform for service oriented industries (restaurants, retail, c-stores, grocers, hotels, etc…). Service-oriented businesses often have difficulties managing the complexities of their ever changing and high turnover workforce.
TimeForge can help manage labor by making labor management simple. Staff are commonly scheduled to work doubles, or back-to-back shifts. In some cases, a staff member may transition from one job (or position) to another without ever leaving the business, and may forget to switch their position in the attendance system.
To help ease administration of employees clocking in and out throughout the day, TimeForge can automatically switch staff to the correct position.
For example, a waiter or waitress (server) may work from 10:00am – 3:00pm as a waiter, and then transition to a bartender from 4:00pm – 8:00pm. Or, a lifeguard may work from 8:00am – 1:00pm, then as a swim coach from 1:00pm – 3:00pm.
Navigate to the Attendance Options
Locate the Attendance Options tab inside of TimeForge.
Set the Auto-Switch Position Flag
Locate the option to automatically switch positions, based on the schedule, for staff members who are clocked in.
Switch this from No to Yes, and then save your options.
TimeForge now will automatically switch jobs / positions for staff members who work back-to-back shifts.
Please note: The staff member needs to clock in to the first scheduled shift to allow TimeForge to transition between positions.
