Rostering templates

Rostering templates enable you to create on-demand shifts in advance and allocate them as needed throughout the week. This is particularly useful if your team:

  • has a varying roster from week to week
  • requires different rosters during on/off seasons
  • needs to fill open shifts on a weekly basis.

Using templates can streamline your team rostering process while meeting your business requirements effectively.

Save roster as a template

If you've already created a weekly roster, simply save it as a template and load it onto the fitting week.

Creating a template from scratch

You can begin with an empty template and add the shifts that matter most to your business. There are two options available for each shift: openshift or a specific member.

Loading a template

Load the template for the week you would like to use.

Manager's permission

Managers can be granted permission to manage templates, enabling them to utilise templates for their respective departments.

Fixes & enhancements

  • Improved open shifts UI
  • Improved roster page UI

Adding notes when signing in/out

There can be various reasons why you may need staff members to enter notes for their shifts. This can help in having a better experience when approving timesheets on payday. For example, if they forgot to clock in or out, or what time they started their shift, etc.

Now, with Timble Time Clock's on-site mode, you have the ability to allow staff members to add notes during the sign-in or sign-out process.

Setting it up is easy, just follow these 2 steps:

  1. Enable the option "Allow members to add a note when clocking in or out."
  2. Upgrade the Timble Time Clock app to the latest version, v2.4.0.

Tap the note button on the PIN screen and enter any necessary notes.

Managers will be able to preview the notes provided by staff members for each entry.
