Positions can be applied in many ways. Traditionally, this defines an employee's job role (such as nurse, cook, cashier, etc). However, they are very flexible and can be used to define any kind of information you might use to separate your employees' skills, responsibilities, and more.
To create a position, go to your Dashboard and click the Positions tab, then click the Add position button.
Enter the position name, then choose a color to be associated with shifts for this position.
Next, add employees. Any person who might be assigned to a shift for this position or who can pick up a shift for this position should be listed here. You can type names into the field or click and choose one by one from the list. Note that you can add all employees with one click using the link shown.
Like locations, you also have an option to permanently hide a position from your view of the schedule. This should only be used if the position is one you will never manage, but this could affect your ability to see totals for employees scheduled in multiple positions.
There is also an option to enter a position ID which can be applied to reports (Business version).
Finally, you have the option to set a base wage for a position. Setting a base wage for a position means that any employee assigned to this position will be paid at this rate, unless they have a specific rate for this position defined in their profile.
When you have all the details set the way you want, click Save to create your new position.
