Create a new Workforce

A new workforce, together with its first rota, can be made by clicking the 'Managers: Create a new Workforce and Rota' button found under the Workforce menu tab.

Enter the name of your business as the Workforce Name. A description can also be added. Then click 'Create Workforce and Rota'.

Your new Rotaville workforce and its first rota will be created. Some example shifts with some examples employees will be automatically added to the new rota.

The example shifts and employees can be edited or deleted. 

After a workforce has been created, more Workforce Settings can be found in Edit Settings under the Workforce menu tab.

Use the Rotas menu tab to switch the rota view from one workforce to another.


Any user on Rotaville can create a workforce. New managers might like to create a workforce called something like "MY TEST WORKFORCE" and then use this workforce for testing and learning how to use the Rotaville system.

Using your own separate and fake workforce testing/learning/playing with Rotaville is safer than accidentally making mistakes, due to inexperience with the software, on your real production workforce rotas.
