You are able to share and transfer staff between your various locations. Sharing is considered temporary, while transferring is considered a more-or-less permanent move to a different location.
Sharing and Transferring Staff
You can share and transfer staff either in bulk or individually.
To transfer or share several team members, navigate to the Staff tab.
Check the boxes next to each appropriate individual.
Click More, and from the drop-down menu, select either Share Employee or Transfer Employee.
In the boxes that appear, select the appropriate location(s). When sharing employees, you select the start and end date. When transferring, only select the date the transfer will take effect.
Click Send Request when finished.
To share or transfer an individual, navigate to the individual's profile page in the Staff tab.
Then select Share/Transfer.
Select either Share Employee or Transfer Employee.
The process is similar to that described above. The request will need to be accepted by the recipient location before the transfer or share is complete.
After acceptance of the share, the borrowing store will see the borrowed employee in HotSchedules accessible to their location. Since HotSchedules is not able to add information to a POS, the borrowing store must add the employee manually into their point of sale. They can then use the POS ID from that new POS entry for the employee's HotSchedules profile.
- Confirm that the employee is now shared in HotSchedules
- Create a POS profile for the employee in your POS
- Type in the POS ID provided by that new POS entry into the employee's HotSchedules account
***This step MUST happen before the next POS sync occurs.***
Responding to Transfer or Share Requests
When logging in to your HotSchedules account, you may see a notification box, letting you know that there are transfer or share requests pending.
To respond to the requests, either click the notification, or navigate to the Share and Transfer Approval page in the Staff tab. The page will inform you what you need to know about each request. Simply click Accept or Deny for each request.
Once accepted, employees shared with other stores will be marked with a "Shared" label in the Staff List of their home store, and a "Borrowed" label at the new, temporary store.
Please note: Employee records can only be edited at the individual's home location.
