Mobile Employee Schedule Edits Coming to HotSchedules App

See how menu, purchasing, and inventory excellence drives profitability.


Restaurant employee scheduling isn’t a perfect science. Managers are busy and… well, sometimes employee schedules need to be changed. With that in mind, we’re excited to announce that a highly requested and long-awaited feature has just been added to the HotSchedules mobile app. Managers can now make edits to posted schedules from their mobile device – both Android and iOS. No more running to the back office to make a quick schedule change. Just head on over to the Roster page in your mobile app and filter by day part, schedule or job to conduct the following changes from your phone:

  • Edit existing shifts for a scheduled employee
  • Add an employee to the posted schedule
  • Re-assign a posted shift to another employee
  • House a posted shift
  • Add a House Shift

Are You Subject to Fair Work Week Regulations?

Over the next couple of months, we will add additional capabilities that support employee scheduling compliance needs such as schedule violation alerts. Once these features are complete, customers operating in one of the Fair Work Week or Predictive Scheduling legislative areas will be able to take advantage of these capabilities as well.

Be sure you are subscribed to Release Notes so you will get emails when these and other features are ready. We have a lot of exciting development planned for 2019 here at HotSchedules, and we don’t want you to miss a thing!
