Schedule - Shifts Tab

Once you have selected the respective options for creating a new schedule, you will then be taken to the scheduling screen itself.  In this section, you'll be able to define which employees work at what times and as what Job Class.

 

 

Name

This will list each employee that has been scheduled to work for the date selected in the Shift View section - see below.

 

Job Type

This field details the scheduled employee's job type.

 

Start

This is the time that the employee is scheduled to start work for the day.

 

End

This is the time that the employee is scheduled to end work for the day.

 

Hours

This is simply the number of hours scheduled during the shift, calculated from the Start and End times.

 

Shift Pay $

This calculates the employee's gross pay for the shift.  This column can be hidden by Microworks Tech Support if you do not want the person making the schedule to know how much other employees are making.

 

Volume

In this section, you'll choose which volume measure that you'd like to view for the selected date.  Any Forecast Indicators previously configured will appear here.  The number of weeks used for the forecast can be configured by Microworks Tech Support.
