To add to the employee scheduling feature of our workforce management application, there is now an auto-scheduler that will automatically detect empty shifts or unfilled open slots and prompts you for action. You are given three options: (1) to ‘Fill these shifts’ by the auto-scheduler, (2) to ‘Create a new schedule’, or (3) to ‘Cancel’, which will leave the empty or open shifts unfilled.
If the first option to ‘Fill these shifts’ is selected, the scheduling wizard will ask if you want to include unfilled open shifts. If you only want to fill empty shifts and none of the open shifts, uncheck the ‘Fill shifts that have open slots’
If you want to fill the empty shifts with X number of employees and fill all available open slots, check both the ‘Fill shifts that have open slots’ option and the ‘Fill remaining X open slots on X shifts’ option.
If you want to fill the empty shifts with X number of employees and fill X number of open slots on each open shift, uncheck the ‘Fill remaining X open slots on X shifts’ option.
We hope our new employee auto-scheduler helps to prevent any problems you may have filling required shifts with an adequate amount of staff.
