Shift On/Off, the new feature from vWork, is available now. Your mobile workers can now easily signal whether they are available or unavailable for jobs via their smart phone.
A dispatcher can now see if a worker is ‘on shift’ (and available for assignments) or not, all through the job schedule. This provides much more visibility and flexibility, especially with a workforce that may operate with varying schedules.
Your clients are better informed from the get-go, which only improves their experience.
For the worker, Shift On/Off can be used when taking a lunch break or other personal time, possibly relieving their stress around normal circumstances, and making it easier for them to manage their day.
Shift On/Off comes with some handy extra options:
- Shift reporting so you can run time-sheets on shift times if needed.
- Quick “shift off” times, a simple way for a worker to indicate the time that they are having off from that moment.
- Custom “shift off” times for personal holidays or other.
Dispatchers can override the Shift On/Off notification, if need be.
Shift On/Off can be turned on in your vWork settings now.
