This is a part of the Smart Ops Release. Click here to learn more about the Smart Ops Release.
The Job Responsibilities list in the Smart Ops Release hosts all Job Responsibilities created in R365. Job responsibilities allow a Job to be further classified based on qualifications or skills. Job Responsibilities can be created from the Job Responsibilities list and assigned to the necessary Job and Employee forms. Once assigned, Job Responsibilities can be selected when creating a new Shift in the Scheduling module.
Note: This upgrade will be rolled out to all R365 databases over the course of Q2 2021. Contact your Customer Success Manager to learn more.
Examples of Job Responsibilities
Job Responsibilities break down a general Job Title into specific categories. For the general Job Title 'Cook', additional responsibilities or skills of 'Grill' and 'Fryer' then help to specify the type of Cook needed for a Shift. The corresponding Employees would then be assigned the Job of 'Cook' and the 'Grill' or 'Fryer' Job Responsibility.
Certain Jobs may also require certain training or certifications before certain duties of a Job can be performed. If a certain Shift requires 'Cashier Training' to be completed, the Employees trained on the cash register should have this Job Responsibility assigned to their Employee form and then only they will be able to work that specific Shift.
Responsibilities help to further detail out different aspects of a Job Title. This provides more clarity to the Scheduler and ensures that all Labor Accruals are debited from the same GL Account.
Begin by clicking 'Smart Operations NEW!' in either the Operations or Scheduling module. This will load the Home page.
- Note: Users with the 'Restaurant Manager' or 'Scheduler' Primary Security Role will be automatically directed to the Home page upon logging into the system.
In the left navigation pane, click 'Responsibilities' under 'Team' to view the Job Responsibilities list.
In addition to the list functions explained below, lists can also be filtered to display in ascending or descending order by clicking the column title. The list can then be further filtered after the initial sort by holding down the 'Shift' key on your keyboard and clicking any other column header.
