Hello WorkRoster Users,

We're excited to announce that WorkRoster has received a major speed boost! Over the past few months, we've been working hard to modernise, update, and upgrade the code and infrastructure powering WorkRoster. The result? Faster rostering for your business!

No matter the size of your workforce, these upgrades will help you create, update, and maintain your work rosters more quickly and efficiently than ever before. With improved page load times, faster data processing, and an enhanced user interface, WorkRoster is better equipped to handle even the most complex roster planning needs.

We're confident that these upgrades will make a big difference in how you experience WorkRoster, and we can't wait for you to try them out. As always, your feedback is essential to us, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

From all of us at WorkRoster, thank you for choosing us as your go-to roster solution. We're committed to providing you with the best possible experience, and we're excited to continue improving and expanding WorkRoster to meet your evolving needs.

Happy Rostering!

Best regards, Jason.

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:

For managers:

Assigning Employees: WorkRoster Help Center - Assigning Employees

Advanced Workforce Settings: WorkRoster Help Center - Advanced Workforce Settings

For employees:

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.

Roster styles updated
20 May 2023

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!

Roster "Month" view update.
7 January 2023

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.
