Employee Note Tab

Notes can be entered using the following:

  2. Manager Log: Daily Overview Labor - same as above
  3. Manager Log: Note - Employee - hover over the Manager Log menu, select 'Note', then choose 'Employee'

Punches Tab


This list shows all the detailed labor punches when this Employee has clocked in and out of the POS and at which Location(s).

Locations Tab

This tab displays all the Locations where this Employee record exists on a POS.

Availability Tab


This tab is used in the Scheduling module to help the Restaurant Manager or Scheduler determine when to schedule the Employee.  This is where you specify the general availability for the Employee for each day of the week.  Options are 'Available All Day', 'Unavailable All Day', or specific start and end times of availability.

Setting this won't prevent the Employee from being scheduled at these times but they will show up on the schedule as a visual flag for the scheduler to take into account when assigning shifts.

Jobs Tab

On this tab you can see and manage which Jobs are assigned to this Employee. To add a Job, select it from the fields above the grid and click 'Add'. To delete a Job, click the trash can icon on the row that should be removed. Jobs that are excluded from the schedule will have '(inactive)' listed after the Job Title.

The Rating field is used in Scheduling so that you can set that a specific shift must be filled by an employee with a certain rating (i.e., only 4 star or above Bartenders can work the Friday night shift). You can use this to limit the possible employees who can work that shift based on the rating.

Ratings can be easily managed by clicking the appropriate stars on the row next to each Job. Star ratings are not visible to Employees, but are visible to the 'Scheduler' role.

Responsibilities Tab


This tab shows which Job Responsibilities this Employee has.  You can add them by selecting from the drop-down above the grid and clicking the 'Add' button and can remove them by clicking the trashcan icon on the row you want to remove.

Job responsibilities allow you to break a Job down into more detailed responsibilities/qualifications/certifications.  You can then assign these Responsibilities to only certain Employees.  When creating shifts in Scheduling you can specify what responsibility the Employee must have in order to fulfill that shift.  This will limit which possible Employees can be selected.

For example if you have a job called 'Cook' and you want to schedule one 'Cook' shift for the grill and another for the fryer, then 'Grill' and 'Fryer' could be setup as Responsibilities, and assigned to the specific Shifts.  Any Employee that has the Job title, as well as the Responsibility would be available to assign to that Shift.  Click here for more information on Job Responsibilities.
