Keep up to date with vWork Shift On/Off

22 January 2016

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.

If you would like more detail please refer to our overview help article or specific to Apple or Android devices.
