New Scheduling Screen

We’ve redesigned the scheduling screen so it is faster and easier to use. With this change, we remove more whitespace so you can see more employees on the screen at once. Some other key features of the new design:

Departments

View multiple departments at once and show/hide multiple employees at once.

Views

Daily, weekly and month views allow you to get to the information you want to see faster.

Layout

A simpler layout to find the information you need faster.

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

This is how to properly bookmark your company’s TimeWellScheduled access point at home:

  1. Right click on your Bookmarks toolbar, and select New Bookmark.
  2. Paste in your company’s TimeWellScheduled URL, and other bookmark information. Click Add.
  3. Use this bookmark to access your TimeWellScheduled company portal:

You CANNOT bookmark your company’s TimeWellScheduled page from the page itself. Our system takes your company link’s information, and then redirects you to the TimeWellScheduled portal.

This is what your company address looks like:

This is the website your company URL will redirect to.

As you can see, there is no information within the second URL. Therefore, our system does not know what company you belong to.

When an employee is scheduled for a full day, but is spilt between 2 departments, does the system recognize the full shift and allot the proper meal and break periods?

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

If you have an employee that is scheduled for a full day, 8AM to 5PM, but is split between 2 departments, how do you have the system recorgnize this? There are two ways you can achieve this:

Method 1:

Create 2 separate shifts, one for each department the employee is working in. Add one shift from 8AM to 12PM and the other 1PM to 5PM (assuming they have a lunch from 12PM to 1PM)

Method 2:

Create 1 shift for the full day and in the NOTES, mention the department they will switch into, ie. ‘After lunch, cover hardware’.
