What’s New

Deputy has made updates to Smart Scheduling based on your feedback.

  • New feature - Working Hours
  • Updates to Labor Modeling

Working Hours

We have improved working hours (previously known as opening hours) in location settings to reflect how your business operates.

This change allows you to enter your business working hours for each day of the week. This provides the flexibility to include different opening hours per day or select a day where your business is closed.

This improvement allows you to replicate your business’ working hours when scheduling employees, creating budgets or setting labor modeling rules. Deputy uses these hours to tailor to your business requirements. This improves the creating employee leave or shift experience by basing it the individual working day. For more information about how leave hours are calculated, have a look into leave management help article for more information.

Labor Modeling

We updated how you can use Labor Modeling to provide granularity and accuracy. The latest update allows you to create labor rules based on your location’s working hours.

For more information on how to create labor rules and how this will benefit you when scheduling employees, have a look at our Labor Modeling help article.
