When saving / publishing shifts, there are a number of things to consider: staff member availability, employment (positions, departments, locations), time-off, etc. Determining these things manually can take quite a bit of time, but with Ximble, we want to ensure that your scheduling time is decreased, and more efficient. When saving / publishing shifts, the system will automatically check all shifts, and staff member information, to determine if there are any conflicts present. If there are, the save / publish action will halt, and the conflict reason(s) will be displayed at the top of the shift creation window. Please see the example image below:
Emma has a Schedule Rule in place that states she is only allowed to work 40 hours per week, so the 9 AM to 5 PM shift being created will exceed that limit. Regardless, we don't want to limit functionality, so clicking the Save button again will override the warning. Once the warning has been overridden, the shift will be saved, and the weekly hours limit will display in red to ensure it's understood that Emma is now exceeding the amount of hours she's normally eligible to work.
The conflict checks will take into consideration any Schedule Rules in effect, approved time-off, Hours of Operation, and more. So get out there, start scheduling, and worry less. Ximble's got your back!
