Rostering day programs or accommodation shifts can be difficult as often staff shifts are alternating throughout the day. 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.
In the situation where the cost of providing the service is fixed for a day or week, you need only create a shift for the start of the day or week and using a fixed price this will produce a single line item in the invoice for the service.
