Version 9 Beta Test Roadmap
Roadmap For WorkSchedule.Net v9 Beta
Please note that this roadmap is subject to change at any time.
ESTIMATED BY APRIL 1, 2022
Confirm / decline feature
Allows employees to confirm or decline a shift on the schedule via a link, depending on permissions. This will be an improved version of the existing feature in version 8.
Allows employees to bid on shifts. Shifts that are bid on will be highlighted for the admin. The admin can then use automation to find the bid winner, or manually choose from a list of bidders. This will be an improved version of the existing feature in version 8.
Cancel Time Off
A request/approval process for cancelling previously approved time off (does not include re-assignment)
Double Scheduling Suppression Per TB
This feature allows specific time blocks to be tagged as immune from the double scheduling rule (does not set off warnings when conflicting with other TBs).
A free text area in each time block similar to standard “Notes”, except that employees cannot view it.
Daily Coverage Report
A report that lists the employees as rows, and breaks down the day into 15, 30, or 60 minute increments showing as columns across to the right. Each cell of the report shows either filled in or not, depending on whether or not the employee is working during that time period. At the bottom of each column the report shows a count of how many users are scheduled, needed, and the difference. This will be a more enhanced version of the daily coverage report that exists in version 8 now.
Allows the admin to group rules into lists (“profiles”) that so that there can be multiple sets of automation rules for various users, situations, departments, etc., instead of only one list for the whole company.
Allows developers to connect the WorkSchedule.Net software to third parties for the purposes of exchanging data.
ESTIMATED BY JUNE 1, 2022
Partial shift swapping and sign up
Allows employees to swap or sign up for partial shifts, provided the permission allows it.
Ability to add / view qualifications from category item
Allows admins to add /edit qualifications from a category item by listing the users qualified for it. This is in addition to the current way: adding a list of qualified category items for a user.
Military vs standard time option
Allows times to be entered/shown in either standard or military time. Currently times are only entered/shown in standard time.
European vs. American date options
Allows dates to be entered/shown in either American or European format (mm/dd/yy vs. dd/mm/yy). Currently dates are only entered/shown in American format.
