Manning Levels

Manning Levels in WhosOffice allow you to plan your working time based on demand. You can either setup Manning Levels on days you require a specific number of people to be at work or setup a Min. Group Level Rule which allows you to state that on any given day you need at least 5 people, for example, to be at work within a chosen Group.

To setup Manning Levels on a single day you can;

  • From the Work menu click, Work Planner
  • Then use the Show Totals option and click Manning Levels
  • At the bottom of the Work Planner you will see 2 rows appear, Required Staff and Totals.
  • In the Required Staff row you will be able to set the required number of staff you need to have at work on any given day

The Totals row will indicate whether you have met the required number with a traffic light effect that is explained below;

  • Red - This will indicate that you are below the required number
  • Orange - Will indicate that you are over the required number
  • Green - Will indicate that you have met that required number

Manning Levels also allow you to use the Open Shifts tool, this will notify your staff that there is a requirement for work on any given day. For more information on Open Shifts please see the related Knowledge Base article.

For information on how to setup Min. Group Levels that affect Manning Levels, see the Min Group Level Rule article.
