Not every shift is the same

Sometimes you need to make a change to the length of a shift for a single person or a group of staff. We've made it easy to do this based on feedback from our users, instantly updating fatigue and other selection criteria as well as all your reports.

Shorter or longer shifts are easy to change in CoRoster

Simply select the shift and adjust the start or finish times. CoRoster takes care of the rest.

Sort or long shift


Shift lengths are generally pre-set in CoRoster, making it easy to plan for working hours and rest periods between shifts. But we know that things can often change  - and normally that's 5 mins before a shift starts!

In another of our user requested features, we've make changing working times for any shift easy, so you can keep records up to date. Changes in the start or finish times will show up on the shift with a small counter showing the new working hours. We've kept the visuals subtle so you can see at a glance who's working different hours to the usual, but not let it get in the way of seeing the whole roster.

All details on staff hours are correctly reflected in reports and should you wish to auto assign with the roster, fatigue and total working hours can also be accounted for with updated details.

CoRoster is changing the way staff are scheduled, saving companies money and creating a better work life balance for staff.
