We're excited to announce the launch of a new feature for WorkRoster: Shift Interest. With Shift Interest, employees can indicate their willingness or reluctance for unassigned shifts.
To use Shift Interest, ensure that the Workforce Settings allow employees to view all shifts. This feature only applies before employees are assigned to shifts, and the old pre-accept and pre-decline functionality has been removed.
Once an employee is assigned to a shift, they can confirm their Shift Agreement ( Accept or Decline ) as before.
We've also made performance improvements, resolved minor bugs, and updated the design of various screens and pages.
To make the most of Shift Interest, download the updated version v62.0.0 of the WorkRoster App on Android and iOS.
We've also added informative Short Video lessons on Shift Interest for managers and employees:
Assigning Employees: WorkRoster Help Center - Assigning Employees
Advanced Workforce Settings: WorkRoster Help Center - Advanced Workforce Settings
Employee Introduction: WorkRoster Help Center - Employee Introduction
Employee Shift Interest: WorkRoster Help Center - Employee Shift Interest
We hope Shift Interest proves to be a valuable addition. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
We've recently updated the styles on our pages and screens. We've been working hard on this for a while, and we're really chuffed with the results. We think it makes the whole thing look a lot more modern and user-friendly.
Nearly every screen has been updated in one way or another. If you spot a page, screen, or dialog that doesn't look quite right, then please do let us know. We'd be really grateful if you could take a photo or screenshot and send it over. That way, we can fix it up as soon as possible.
Cheers, and we hope you like the new look!
The Show More Calendar button, located at the bottom of the roster "Month" view, now loads the entire next month instead of just one additional week.
This improvement will be particularly useful for managers who frequently plan shifts for multiple weeks or months in advance using the Month view.
The new WorkRoster.com is now live and available for any type of business to manage their staff work rosters.
Everything is Ready to go! Including
We’re calling this a “beta” launch - just in case there are any kinks to be ironed out, but we’re not expecting any problems or issues.
