Having a quality schedule is vital to keeping your restaurant running smoothly. TimeForge can make scheduling easier with this free restaurant scheduling template. With Obamacare already here, we’ve made sure that our spreadsheet helps you track employee hours and overtime. If an employee is scheduled for more than 30 hours in one week, their hours worked background color will change to red. If they’re scheduled for more than 40 hours in one week, the background color will change to red and the text will change to red too. That way you’ll see overtime at a glance and manage your labor hours much more effectively.
If you’re interested in something that offers more benefits than Excel could ever offer, you should try out TimeForge Scheduling Lite. TimeForge Scheduling Lite is our free web-based scheduling software that helps schedule small restaurants with 25 users at 1 location. Your employees will be able to enter their availability and their time off requests. You’ll be able to approve or deny time off requests online within TimeForge and be able to easily see who’s unavailable when building the schedule. You won’t accidentally override any requests. Employees can even optionally receive email alerts about the schedule, keeping them in the loop.
