What is rostering


Selected shift managers can create schedules for employees by setting up Rostering. There are a few ways Rostering can be used:


  • As a shift schedule - For example, you are running a restaurant with two employee shifts, one in the morning and one in the evening OR day schedules, Schedule A (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and Schedule B (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). You are able to set up rosters like these.


  • As a Business Continuity Plan - For example, you have to limit the number of people in the office building to promote safe physical distancing, you can have team A and team B that will come into the office on different days or weeks.



Note that there are two ways to assign an employee to a shift:

    

1. Select employees by their names, or


2. Allow employees to select a shift from their altHR mobile app. Shift managers can then approve

    or reject their applications.
