Currently, we can only bulk assign work. E.g. if your business hours are from 09:00 - 23:00 you have two shifts 09:00 - 16:00 and 16:00 to 23:00. You can assign person A to the first shift and person B to the second shift for the whole week.
Bulk is fine, but I would also like the ability to assign by day so that I can give people off certain days.
Interesting you mention it. It’s on my personal todo on things I want to improve.
Right now the schedule and the opening hours are strongly coupled together. I was considering moving that connection completely and allow you to freely setup any kind of schedules, with some kind of “automatic configure” button.
What would you prefer? Total freedom, or improvements to the existing one?
I think having a combination of the two (enabled by a setting or what have you) would be sufficient.
As OP points out, the bulk is fine. However, given certain situations (retirement, demands, etc) you may want to have the ability to control finer details.
I find it really helpful to bulk people, and just not be open on Saturday and Sunday (apparently everyone I hire wants weekends off). However, in the future assuming I will find someone wanting to work weekends, just being able to assign by day would be awesome.
Each employee assigned to the business will be available above, each with different colors. The box can be drag and dropped a workstation and the size (hours) can be dragged to make it smaller or larger.
Clicking the blue copy button, will clear schedule for all other days and copy the current schedule to each of them, no matter the specific opening hours the day.
Maybe we could also think about having the business hours in the same screen?
It’s always a bit weird for me to have it in different screens and this way you wouldn’t need the text at the bottom.
And also any chance to move the numbers to appear “over the lines”? Just to make it more clear that in the screen opening time is from 8:00 until 20:00 and not 19:00.
You have the tabs for day of the week, so you would schedule 17:00 - 24:00 on Monday, and 00:00 -04:00 on Tuesday. The two combined would make a shift.
@jhovgaard Your mockup only goes to 23:00. It will need to go to Midnight if we want to create a 24 hour store.
Also, as I mentioned in the original post, if people will retire often, it would be nice if we can create shifts with the new UI that you propose. Or even better, if we get a message “John Doe will retire in 10 days, do you want to hire a replacement?” option. Meaning John Doe retires on day 123, Jane Doe replaces him and starts on Day 124.
Either way, I really like this layout with the opening hours and each cash register & cleaner set out like that.
Currently, or in your mock-up? And are we just talking employees?
What I’m saying is 17:00-04:00 is not currently possible. The issue with what @Namennaj stated is while I can do 17:00-24:00 on Monday, and 00:00-04:00 on Tuesday. I can not do 17:00-24:00 on Tuesday as well, because we can only have one block of business hours per day.
