Employee Roster Usage

Employee Signup

All Employees (and Managers) on WorkRoster need their own  User Account so that they can log in at   to check their roster and login using the WorkRoster Mobile Apps.
 You may have received an email from your shift manager with a request to join your workforce and it's rosters on WorkRoster.

Review the Roster

Exactly how much information you, as an employee, get to see on the roster view depends on the Workforce Settings that have been set by the roster managers or Workforce Owner.

A typical roster view might look something like the annotated screenshot above.

You'll see both confirmed shifts (to which the manager probably won't be making any more changes to) and shifts with a draft status which are still being planned.

Update your Availability

If your workforce is using the WorkRoster Availability feature then you can update your availability on the web roster view or from the WorkRoster Mobile App.

You can register your availability in advance. Using the controls on the roster, you can indicate yourself as available(green/free to work) or unavailable(red/busy).

Employees should discuss their general availability with the roster managers and also about how they would like them to use the WorkRoster Availability feature.

Updating your availability on WorkRoster provides helpful information to your roster managers when they are planning and allocating shifts.

Update your Shift Interest

If your workforce uses the Shift Interest feature, you might be able to indicate your specific interest for shifts you are not yet assigned to.

You can set your Shift Interest for an upcoming shift by clicking the Willing button in the shift details box.

Depending on the Workforce Settings your managers choose, you can also set your Shift Interest to Reluctant.

Update your Shift Agreements

If your Workforce uses the WorkRoster Shift Agreement feature, then you can respond to your assigned shifts.

You can indicate your Shift Agreement for an upcoming shift by clicking the accept button in the shift details box.

Many roster managers like to see your Shift Agreement set to Accept as an acknowledgement that you've seen the roster and are aware of the upcoming shift.

Depending on the Workforce Settings set by your roster managers, you might also be able to set decline on an assigned shift. Please Note: Even if you've declined a shift, you are still required to work it - unless a roster manager removes you from the shift.
