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.
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.
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.
I. Employee attributes show up in the form of Badges. Badges automatically appear based on the information within the staff member's profile. They are reflected for the following information: minor (M), borrowed (B), shared (S), voluntary standby list (V), and note (N). Hovering over a badge will show the relevant information. Badges will also display in the Scheduler, the Scheduler Roster and the Mobile Roster.
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.
A. Add or adjust the individual’s email, 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.
H. Check the box to use a preferred name rather than a first name throughout the site.*
*There are a few exceptions where you will still find the first name rather than the preferred name, these include: Payroll Exports, Payroll Reports, and the First Name Field under their Personal Settings and Staff List Details.
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.
Managers can also create Schedule Thresholds for their employees. If an employee is then scheduled outside of those thresholds, the Scheduler will inform the scheduling manager. To create a Schedule Threshold, managers can navigate to the bottom of the tab and enter thresholds for the following:
Days Scheduled in a Week - Managers can enter a minimum and a maximum number of days in a week an employee can be scheduled.
Hours Scheduled in a Week - Managers can enter a minimum and a maximum number of hours in a week an employee can be scheduled.
Hours Scheduled in a Day - Managers can enter a maximum number of hours in a day an employee can be scheduled.
