As an organisation, you may base your staffing hours of a rostering system whereby you allocate employees' certain hours they need to work per week based on workload demands. By using rostering software, you can take the heavy administration out of this process for your managers, freeing up their time to work on more import areas such as managing and supporting their employees.
The Rostering module within the Payroll platform has a Shift Bidding feature that allows you to create a shift that multiple employees can bid on and include details such as start and end times, work types, classifications and the role it falls under. You can also use this feature to create a pre-defined employee group you can select when creating a bidding shift, edit these groups details if they change and delete a record if it is no longer required.
To use the Shift Bidding features, you will need to have them turned on via Roster Settings. To read further information on how to access Roster Settings, refer to the following article.
- Click the Roster menu.
- Click the Roster Actions button.
- Click the Bidding Groups button.
- Click the Add button.
- Complete the following fields:
- Group name.
Tick the private checkbox if you want to keep the bidding group private, i.e. only you can see it and use it.
- Click the Save button.
- Click the Rostering menu.

- Bidding employees.
You can select any created Bidding Groups from within the Bidding Employee drop menu. Refer to the Glossary of Shift Availability Terms for further information on what recommended and other employees means.
- Work type.
The Work Type field will only appear if an admin has enabled work types.
The Classification field will only appear if you have assigned the employee an employee agreement, which allows the selection of a higher classification.
The Role field will only appear if an admin has enabled shift roles.
- Click the Save button.
When you add multiple users in the employee’s field, this will automatically create the same shift for the selected employees.
The Payroll platform does not cost bidding shifts and will display the shift cost as $0. This is because the platform assigns multiple employees to the shift, and only when an employee accepts the shift will the platform assign a cost to the shift.
You can only edit a bidding shift that has the status of unpublished.
