Employees working at multiple locations

Roster employees across multiple rosters with different locations

The location on an employee position is one of the determining factors that allow an employee to have shifts assigned on a roster. You can optionally choose to apply multiple locations to employee positions if your employees work across different locations. 

To allow your employees to work at multiple locations you will need to do the following:

  1. Enable the setting to allow employees to work at multiple locations on your platform.
  2. Apply additional locations that employees can work at individually on the Employee Profile or in bulk.

Tips for rostering employees who work at multiple locations
If you have employees who work at multiple locations please consider the following tips.
  • In your Display Settings enable the 'Show External Shifts' option.  This will allow you to see if an employee is already rostered elsewhere.
      External shifts will display as light blue.

  • If you try and roster an employee who is already assigned to work another shift you will see a Conflicting Shift error.
      Conflicting shifts cannot be published until they have been corrected. 


  • You can also use the Filter option to view multiple roster locations at once. This is useful if you use multiple Rosters at the same time.
      Pick and choose what rosters you would like to view or view them all at once.
