Automatically switch the position for clocked-in employees with multiple jobs

Updated Aug 26, 2020

TimeForge is a powerful and easy to use, labor management platform for service oriented industries (restaurants, retail, c-stores, grocers, hotels, etc.). Service-oriented businesses often have difficulties managing the complexities of their ever changing workforce.

TimeForge helps manage labor by making labor management simple. Employees are commonly scheduled to work doubles, or back-to-back shifts. In some cases, a staff member may transition from one job (or position) to another without ever leaving the business, and may forget to switch their position in the attendance system.

To help ease the administration of employees clocking in and out throughout the day, TimeForge can automatically switch staff to the correct position.

For example, a waiter or waitress (server) may work from 10:00am - 3:00pm as a waiter, and then transition to a bartender from 4:00pm - 8:00pm.  Or, a lifeguard may work from 8:00am - 1:00pm, then as a swim coach from 1:00pm - 3:00pm.

Navigate to the Attendance Options
  • Log in
  • Hover over the "Attendance" tab
  • Click "Attendance Options"

Scroll down.

Scroll down.

Scroll down about 1/4 of the way down the page.

Set the Auto-Switch Position Flag

Locate the option above that's highlighted in red.

Switch this option to "Yes."

TimeForge  will now automatically switch jobs / positions for staff members who work back-to-back shifts.

Note:  The staff member needs to clock in to the first scheduled shift to allow TimeForge to transition between positions.
