Managers can now view roster details and update unavailability in WorkZone

WorkZone view roster details

WorkZone just became that much better. With the rostering view tool, managers now have even more ways to help them manage their employees on the move!

Roster view in WorkZone

Managers are busy; often up and about taking calls, writing emails and sometimes offsite entirely. To help managers on the go, our mobile app WorkZone gives you access to a range of tools to manage your workforce, including expense management, leave and timesheet management. Now we’ve made it even better with the roster view and unavailability manager tools!

Tell me more!

The new rostering view will allow managers to see current and future rosters from the palm of their hand. Being able to see all the details of the shift as well as any icons indicating breaks and warnings for added peace of mind. Combined with WorkZone’s other features such as time and attendance, this gives managers greater mobility and real-time information to better manage their workforce on the move rather than having to log into a computer.

Reduce rostering inefficiencies through roster view

 

Managers will be able to view each shift that has been accepted on the day of work, including the employee, location and time of shift, so managers will know who is starting, at what time and on what day and will include approved leave and unavailabilities information as well as if an employee has accepted any rostered shifts. Combined with being able to see unassigned shifts and approved leave and unavailabilities, this will allow managers to plan ahead in real-time without having to log in from a browser.

Unavailability

In this update managers will also be able to edit and delete employee unavailability records on behalf of the staff, being able to set the:

  • Frequency: Select whether unavailability is on an ongoing basis or not.
  • Duration: Whether it is all day or for specific times.
  • Reason: Any relevant notes (not mandatory)

The employee will receive a notification immediately of any changes made, including the details of the change, reducing the need for employee follow-ups. Future updates will allow managers to add unavailability, offering more flexibility in how managers approach mobile staff management.
