Choose the widgets on your Location dashboard (Today page)

Updated Feb 13, 2021

Using widgets, Managers can customize their Today page dashboard so that they see the content they're most interested in right when they log into TimeForge. Widgets are interactive: they can be moved around, resized, and selected to best suit your needs. They are designed to provide useful information at-a-glance while also making it easy to navigate to the in-depth details when needed.

There are widgets for both the Location tab (only available to management) and the Personal tab (available to everyone).

  • Location widgets provide managers with useful information pertaining to that store or location, such as employee schedules, pending shift swaps awaiting manager approval, pending requests, employee birthdays, job applicants, daily log entries, labor costs, weekly sales, and other metrics.
  • Personal widgets provide employees with helpful reminders, information, and shortcuts, such as my requests, messages, HR documents, clock-in/out button, available shifts, and who else is scheduled to work.

This article provides a brief overview of each widget on the Location dashboard.
