Precisely Specify the Required Skills with the Rota Drafting Bench

This innovative feature greatly streamlines workforce scheduling by providing you with the capability to effortlessly integrate your regular shifts into the Rota while seamlessly managing unassigned shifts. Furthermore, these unassigned shifts may necessitate a specific number of employees, and here’s where your flexibility shines—you can precisely specify the required skills, ensuring that the right personnel with the correct skills are always in place. Moreover, employees benefit from the convenience of easily accessing and requesting these unassigned shifts through the clocking-in app, a time-saving approach that eliminates the need for extensive coordination with every team member.

Additionally, you can proactively plan your Rotas months in advance, eliminating the need for weekly adjustments. To simplify the process further, you can easily copy and paste schedules you’ve previously created and replicate entire weeks, making it a breeze, especially when dealing with month-long patterns for some employees.

The benefits of this feature are as follows:

  • Streamlined Workforce Scheduling: Simplify scheduling by easily incorporating regular shifts and managing unassigned shifts for smoother operations.
  • Precision in Staff Allocation: Specify necessary skills for unassigned shifts, ensuring the right personnel are available for improved task execution.
  • Empowered Employee Scheduling: Grant employees control over their schedules by allowing them to access and request unassigned shifts, saving time and enhancing autonomy.
  • Long-Term Planning: Plan rota months in advance, promoting stability in scheduling and reducing the need for frequent adjustments.
  • Seamless Replication: Duplicate schedules and replicate entire weeks effortlessly, optimising scheduling tasks and reducing administrative workload.
