Adding Tasks

Tasks must be added under the ‘Employee Assignment’ tab first by your Managers or Supervisors to assign them to your staff.

Assign Tasks to a Shift

You can assign or remove one or multiple tasks to an individual from shift edit window. It is useful if you want to assign sub-duties to just one of your staff on a single shift.

Tasks Time Tracking

Once a shift time starts, the Upcoming Shifts under the Dashboard will show you the start with the 'Start' button. Employees should click that button to track the time spent on each of the tasks.

Task Reports

To see the time activity for each task, you can use the task report.
