goRoster users can now set ‘Requirements’ for their weekly rosters.
Requirements allow you to set the number of employees that need to be assigned to a particular role on any given day so that you can check to make sure you have your roles covered. This feature is one way to help design your roster to ensure you maintain a high quality level of service and compliance in your chosen industry.
Create some Roles (if you haven’t already)
To use requirements, you first need to make sure you have created ‘Roles’ for your roster.
Here is a handy article showing you how to set up roles if you haven’t already Creating Roles
Using Requirements in your Weekly Roster
Once you have your roles set up you can then enter requirements for the roster in the current week. In the Roster Designer > Menu
To get started, click on the field that corresponds to the day you would like to set it for and click ‘up’ or ‘down’ to adjust the number of required roles.
New! Requirements Indicators
When you have everything set up a ‘REQs’ indicator will display in the Roster Designer above the date in the roster. Green indicates you have assigned the correct number of employees for that role and date while Red indicates that you need to add more. If you need to add more employees to a role you can click on the indicator to edit the settings for your week.
Who can use Requirements?
This new feature is now available to all goRoster users, including those on a free 30-day trial.
