Truly Unique Graphical Timeline
Plan staff rotas with a graphical timeline view. Blue working hours
overlaying green on-call and grey available ones. Just draw the blue shifts or visits over the grey
availability boxes for each employee. Do almost all scheduling from this single view.
The mouse, or your finger, moving, creating and stretching shifts or visits
Look what happens when you move it to the wrong place
The red lines indicate an error as soon as you drop it!!!
(it checks for errors against hundreds of shifts or visits in a fraction of a second as you schedule rather than in retrospect)
(you will not be able to save)
Let's right click, or touch hold, to view the error message on the slide out edit panel to the right
Orange lines indicate a warning
(unlike with errors, you can choose to ignore warnings and continue to save if you must)
Pink lines indicate the visitor does not have enough travel time to get there
I know pink is not a traffic light colour but think almost red :)
Let's reassign the visit to a more suitable employee
Ah, the traffic light colours for candidate employees too! They mean the same thing as the lines do.
We also see employees' percentage attribute match scores, their static preference score, travel distances, how often they visit here and whether they are available.
Let's pick Gandalf, as he has a 89.6% attribute match score, he has no pressing travel constraints
and has done 25% of the shifts or visits here in the previous 6 weeks. The guide does say he is not available, but this is just a guide and not enforced like leave is.
We are using our "artistic traffic light licence" again for the colour gold which means they are working already today (think gold for double shift as they will get lots of money).
Note employees will not appear in this list if they are not in the correct location or role.
I know what you should be thinking!
"What's that orange dot for? It's orange so it must be a warning".
Yes it is... if we slide out the time and attendance panel from the bottom we will see why.
It's the big things that make the difference, which you think are little because they are so intuitive
