What is Deputy's Flexi Weekly plan?

Flexi Weekly is a great option for seasonal businesses, as it offers the exact same features as Deputy Premium with a pricing structure that works for businesses with significant changes in demand throughout the year.

Flexi Weekly is priced according to active and inactive team members on a per week basis (billed monthly). For more information on Flexi weekly pricing please see our pricing page: https://www.deputy.com/pricing

What is the definition of an 'active' team member on Flexi Weekly?

A team member is considered ‘active’ when any of the following occur:

  • A shift has been published for the team member

  • A timesheet has been submitted by the team member

  • The team member has had a timesheet approved

  • The team member has performed management functions such as creating a schedule, approving timesheets or leave, exporting payroll information, managing tasks, creating journal entries or reviewing reports.

What is the definition of an 'inactive' team member on Flexi Weekly?

If the team member has not met any of the above criteria in a given week, they are considered 'inactive'.


This means that inactive members are still able to access all parts of Deputy that will help them stay connected to the business when they're not on the schedule, such as staying up to date on any new information via the News Feed, submitting leave and unavailability requests and updating their employee profile.

Should inactive team members be deleted?

To ensure you’re only paying for what you need, we recommend archiving any users that are no longer associated with your business at all. By archiving these employees, they will no longer have access to your Deputy account, however you will still be able to access their records as required.

Once a team member is deleted from the account, you will no longer be able to access their information.

For employees that may be called in to work in the future, keeping them on Deputy as ‘inactive’ team members allows them to stay connected with the business through having access to the newsfeed (and able to follow any policy or company updates.


How do I know if Flexi Weekly is right for my business?

As a rule of thumb, if you are consistently scheduling more than half of your team each week, you might wish to consider upgrading to our Premium plan. The premium plan is charged as a flat rate of $5.50 per employee per month, with all team members considered active.
