Further information

Can I customise the roster view?

Yes, the employee roster allows you to customise the view with a few handy features. You can use the drop-down menus to:

  • Group by location or business: The Location setting will separate shifts based on individual locations within the business. The Business setting will show all shifts under the main parent location.
  • Sort by employee: (alphabetical) role (alphabetical based on role name), or start time.
  • Location.
  • Shift status.
  • Employee.

You can use the checkboxes to show/not show:

  • Employees with no shifts.
  • Sub-locations.
  • Costs.
  • Leave.
  • Unavailabilities.

Simply click on the toggle button to turn this feature on/off.ROster shifts with checkboxes highlighted.jpg

Can I save the filters for later?

  1. In the employee roster screen, on the left-hand side, click on Manage Filters button.
