Handle schedule changes during employee turnover.
Employee turnover happens and depending on the position could have a huge impact on the employee shift schedule. All previously saved schedules and/or templates become useless and you may have to recreate a new schedule from the scratch. With Zip Schedules, we’ve made it simple to handle employee turnover and other scheduling changes. Any time an employee leaves the organization all of their shifts get automatically moved to the unassigned shift row. Those shifts can be reassigned or offered to all eligible employees. And, if business picks up and you have last seconds shifts that need to be filled they can be offered in the same way. When you’ve created a new schedule that you are happy with, you can easily replace outdated schedule templates.
