Rostering day programs or accommodation shifts can be difficult as often staff shifts are alternating throughout the time. With the different start times, this can look messy when compared to a group program.
In order to manage this roster, we suggest creating a client named after the SIL house or accommodation which workers can be scheduled with. This allows for more flexibility when rostering accommodation shifts.
Setting up Accommodation Client Roster is a 2 step process:
Step 1: Generate a Client. In our example, we assume that SIL house is located on Bernard Street, so we are going to name this client Bernard House.
Step 2: Create shifts for the client Bernard House
The workers will then see on their schedule that they are rostered with the client Bernard House.
From a client perspective, for billing purposes you can reverse this process, creating a worker (with no access) named after the SIL, day programme or accommodation and rostering shifts with that "worker". This will allow you to invoice the client for the shifts appropriately.
