A guide for roster managers, showing them how to add multiple rosters.
A WorkRoster Workforce can contain multiple rosters.
A single roster setup is probably best for a small workforce.
Larger workforces could use multiple rosters to indicate shifts at separate locations,
or, shifts for specific roles,
or, shifts with distinct clients.
The need to use multiple rosters depends on the requirements of each business.
You can view each roster on it's own.
Or, You can view All rosters at once.
Or, You can view a selection of rosters together.
Viewing a selection of rosters can be helpful when your organisation has many rosters and multiple roster managers.
Each manager can view and focus on their area of responsibility, while still having access to the other rosters when needed.
A new Roster can be added by clicking on the "rosters" menu tab, and then "Add or Edit Rosters", and then "Add New Roster".
Each Roster must have a name, and a description is optional.
The new Roster is created.
While various "Workforce Settings" control what shifts are visible to employees, all roster names and descriptions are visible to all employees.
If your organisation has completely independent and unique pools of employees, that do not need to see or access each others rosters, for example, employees located at different sites, or employees engaged in different and mutually exclusive roles (for example, Doctors and Cooks), then, instead of having all employees in a single Workforce and using multiple rosters, you could create multiple independent Workforces on WorkRoster to manage these independent groups of staff and their rosters.
