In this article we will go over the 4 business unit filter options for who you will be able to see and choose from when assigning employee shifts.
Qualification (1) Selecting this filter will designate specific position-level qualifications that are needed for an officer to be assigned a shift.
These may include qualifications such as armed guard, CPR certified, baton, pepper spray, taser, fire training, etc,. Qualifications are assigned at both the position and the employee.
Work History (2) Selecting this filter will show only officers who have worked at the specific location previously to be assigned the shift.
Licenses (3) Selecting this filter will show only officers who have been assigned a specific license requirement in the Business Unit settings.
For example: Do all shifts in the business unit require a Guard Card? If so, then you can filter by only officers that have a guard card.
NOTE: Each license must be configured so that an officer cannot be scheduled if the license has expired. If an employee's license expires, they will automatically be removed from the schedule.
Trainings (4) Selecting this filter will show only officers who have been assigned a specific training requirement in the Business Unit settings.
If this filter is selected then only officers that have a specific training requirement can be assigned the shift.
Available to Work (5) Selecting this filter will cross reference the employee profile availability with the shift.
Accepted Offer (6) Selecting this filter will show all officers who responded that they accepted a posted shift offer.
Shift Code (7) Selecting this filter will show officers that have worked or prefer a shift that has been specifically coded, such as a graveyard shift for example.
Maximum Weekly Hours (8) Selecting this filter will typically default to 40 hours (although it can be changed to a preference if overtime is acceptable).
The filter is designed to avoid scheduling officers who would otherwise go into overtime.
Overtime Daily (9) Selecting this filter will typically default to 8 or 12 hours.
The filter is designed to avoid overtime or double-time penalties.
Department (10) Selecting this filter will show only employees for that specific department.
For example, a 2 departments may be security officers and supervisors.
The filter is designed to avoid assigning higher hourly rate or over qualified employees to a routine shift.
NOTE: All the filters can be defaulted on or off at the business unit level.
