Create a new Workplace

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

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

Your new Rotaville workplace 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 workplace has been created, more Workplace Settings can be found in Edit Settings under the Workplaces menu tab.

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


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

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