Site Scheduling is currently in BETA and will be available to all customers August, 2020.
With Site Scheduling, as a manager you have the ability to add an address to an area of work within a location, allowing more specificity in your shifts and allocating staff to locations that are not a central place of work.
In this article we will cover:
- How to access Site Scheduling
- How to add addresses to Areas
- Viewing your Site Scheduling setup
How to Access Site Scheduling
To access the new site scheduling options navigate to the 'Locations' page in Deputy. Select the Location you would like to add the site-specific addresses and click the 'Edit Settings' button.
Next select the 'Areas' tab and 'Edit' the Area you want to add an address.
How to Add Addresses to Areas
On the edit Area module, you will now see the options to add an address to your selected area. To add an address change the address option toggle to 'Yes'.
Switching the toggle to 'Yes' will reveal a new modal window that will allow you to add an address.
Enter the desired address and hit 'Save'. Now you are ready to schedule employees to the Area with the address.
How to View your Site Scheduling Setup
From the same Areas list, you can quickly see which areas have an individual address set by looking for the location pin icon next to the area name.
As a manager, when scheduling staff via the scheduling page you will also be able to view the addresses on the areas which have site based scheduling set up. This will allow you to view the addresses quickly, while scheduling your staff.
If your employees are scheduled to an Area that has an address set, they will see the following on the web and mobile app.
In the above shift views, the employee can click the blue address text to bring up a map which displays the address of the area where their shift is scheduled.
