In the Staff tab, you are easily able to find the contact information for anyone on your staff. You can also adjust each staff member’s profile, add them to schedules, and print off welcome sheets.
A. The All Staff Certifications sub-link takes you into an area where you can view and adjust your staff’s availability on a store-wide basis.
B. Search for any name here. Simply start typing in the name, and the list will start showing options.
C. You can filter the list by schedule or job simply by clicking on the desired job or schedule.
D. You are also able to add one or more staff members to any schedule by checking the box next to the staff member and desired schedule.
E. Edit staff members’ hire dates by checking the boxes next to the appropriate individuals, and clicking Edit Hire Dates. A window will appear, where you can adjust their hire dates.
F. Generate one or more welcome sheets by checking the boxes beside the appropriate staff members, and clicking Welcome Sheet.
G. Generate a PDF or Excel document of the staff list by clicking Export.
H. Clicking any name in the list will bring up that staff member’s profile, where you can adjust their personal information. Clicking column titles sort the column.
In a staff member’s profile, you can adjust any of their specific information under four sub-tabs: the Details, Jobs/Schedules, and Availability sub-tabs.
A. Add or adjust the individual’s contact information, preferred name, and birthdate.
B. Send the individual their current schedule, or login information. In order to receive either, they will have had to set up their email or text information in their account.
C. Send the staff member a message. This message will appear in their internal messaging inbox. They will also receive an email, if they’ve set it up in their account.
D. Check the box next to any applicable certification for this individual, and use the calendar tool to select the expiration date for the certification. HotSchedules will notify management and the staff member when the expiration date draws near.
E. Click the status of the individual to change it. Inactive staff members will not show up as an option for any schedules, but can be reinstated later. Terminated staff will need to be added again, if you ever want to rehire them. Please note – if your point of sale is integrated with HotSchedules, the status in HotSchedules is determined by the point of sale. If you update it here, you will need to also update it in the POS.
F. Click the permission of the individual to adjust it. Note that permissions are adjusted in a hierarchy; a manager could not adjust the permissions of the GM, for example.
G. If your store uses Meal Break Planning, you will be able to adjust MBP parameters.
Under the Availability sub-tab, you can adjust the individual’s weekly availability. This information stays the same from week to week, unless you change it. You can see the latest changes by clicking the date tiles. To adjust availability, click the Plus icon. Then drag your cursor over a time frame to make it unavailable. Gray signifies the individual is not available. You are able to make time frames longer and shorter by dragging the ends, and split them up by clicking the middle of a time frame, and adjusting accordingly.
Under the Jobs/Schedules sub-tab, you can regulate the schedules of which this individual is a part by checking the appropriate boxes.
You can also adjust the job information for the individual. If your point of sale is integrated with HotSchedules, the jobs will be brought over automatically. If your POS is not integrated, you are also able to manually select which jobs the individual works.
Whether or not your point of sale provides the individual’s jobs, you are able to rank their skill levels using the drop-down menus next to each job.
