"How do I create a roster?" by Hero Academy training


As an organisation, you may base your staffing hours off 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 feature is a labour planning tool that allows you to set shift requirements for your staff and assign employees to those shifts. You can also use this feature to share rostered shifts with your staff and to manage their availability settings.
