Notes in the Schedule

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

We just updated the employee schedule and the action messages when employees clock in to include any notes attached to their schedule. This allows managers/supervisors to post additional information about their shift that they want to pass on to the employee.

Payroll Integration expanded

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Now you can integrate your TimeWellScheduled Time and Attendance system and payroll with a simple click. The products for which we support payroll integration are:

What does this mean for our clients? It means that if you use any one of these payroll software packages you could save up to two days a week in data entry and verification for payroll processing. In your TimeWellScheduled settings, you can choose “Manage My Company” and choose your payroll vendor under “General Settings”. Once your time sheets are all verified and exceptions have been managed, you can prepare your payroll report with a single click as an export. The exported file is in the format that your payroll software understands and can import for processing by your bank.

Many thanks to all of our clients who have provided valuable feedback and new feature requests. It’s this engagement that allows to continue to roll out new features every month to help you save time and money!

Night shifts

Night Shifts
This week we released a new feature to allow shifts to span midnight. Up to now you had to create 2 schedule entries, which caused more work, and employees having to punch in/out.

To start using this, log into the site, go to MANAGE MY BUSINESS->GENERAL SETTINGS and under ‘Scheduling’ you will see

Our business has shifts that start in one day and end the next day:

[ ] No
[ ] Yes, and for payroll:
( ) all hours are added to the day the shift starts (ie. if scheduled Monday from 9PM-3AM, timecard will show 6 hours on Monday)
( ) all hours are added to the day the shift ends (ie. if scheduled Monday from 9PM-3AM, timecard will show 6 hours on Tuesday)
( ) hours are split equally between the two days (ie. if scheduled Monday from 9PM-3AM, timecard will show 3 hours on Monday, 3 hours on Tuesday)

Several New Features Being Added to the Website This Weekend!

Friday, March 11th, 2011

This weekend, we are adding several new features to the TimeWellScheduled website:

1 – When printing schedules, the department code is added to the colour coding so you can easily see on black and white print outs what department each employee works.
2 – When an employee misses a break or meal, we now show an alert in the timecard sheet
3 – When you filter down to a specific employee, we switch to a month view instead of the standard weekly.
4 – New scheduling alerts let you see when you’re paying overtime, under hours or shifts are too close together
