A ShiftApp workforce contains the list of employees and the schedule for your company or organisation.

To gain access to the online schedule on ShiftApp employees will need to be invited by a manager to join the workforce.

Multiple schedules can be configured within a single workforce

Multiple Workforces

It's possible for workforce owners to create multiple workforces but it's important to remember that all workforces on ShiftApp are completely independent and separate from each other.

Each workforce has it's own unique
  • employees
  • managers
  • schedules
  • holidays
  • agreements
  • client records
  • resource records
  • memos
and none of this information is accessible by any other workforce on the system.

Each individual ShiftApp user can be invited to join with multiple workforces. Sometimes it's appropriate for senior managers, payroll staff, or schedule managers to have access to multiple workforces.

ProTip: When to create multiple workforces

Because each workforce is completely independent and separate from every other workforce on ShiftApp workforce owners need to think carefully before creating multiple workforces.

Each workforce should contain it's own unique pool of employees.  If you have a shared pool of employees across work sites or teams then you should instead create multiple schedules within a single ShiftApp workforce

Within the same company ( and perhaps even at the same work location ), if you have entirely separate teams that don't need access to each other's schedules and each team with their own unique pool of employees, then you could create multiple workforces, one for each team.
