Today we are thrilled to announce a new feature that has been at the top of our “wish list” for some time now. Many customers had asked us about how best to handle jobs where they didn’t care what employee clocked in, just as long as somebody did. For many of our customers who manage many different locations, simply ensuring that at least one employee had arrived at a jobsite was critical information. One example of this type of job might be a pool management company that needs to be sure someone has shown up to open a neighborhood pool for the day, or a security firm that needs to be sure a specific location is covered by a certain time.
We started rolling this feature out on Tuesday, and already we are thrilled with the response from our customers, and the innovative ways they are planning to use it. Our programming team put in lots of hard work perfecting how this new type of schedule would work with our alert system, so that supervisors can receive up to the minute information regarding which job sites are covered. Our team also designed the schedules to interface perfectly with our Mobile Chronotek system, allowing supervisors to view this information from any web enabled mobile device.
All in all we are very proud to be able to offer this new feature to our customers. Our support staff created an excellent email tutorial on using “Any Employee” schedules, and current Chronotek customers should check their inboxes for this information. As always, any questions or feedback may be left in the comments section below- we’d love to hear how you plan to use this new feature!
