Set up employee profiles for Shiftplan

Modified on Tue, 07 May 2024 at 01:23 PM


Shiftplan is flexible for your business. You are able to customize your shifts as per the roles, working areas, and special employee qualifications or needs. The roles, locations, and tags will later be used to generate recommended employees while creating shifts. Since you might have some employees who work in shifts and some do not,you can also activate and deactivate Shiftplan for each employee.

Once you have set up Shiftplan in Kenjo, it's time to configure your employees' profiles.

Step 1: Create an Employee profile

Depending on how actively you have been using Kenjo, you might have added your employees to Kenjo or not. If you have not added your employees to Kenjo, learn how to create their profiles here.

Step 2: Activate Shift plan for employees

Once you have enabled locations, added roles and working areas, you can start activating employees.

To activate shift plan for your employees, 

  • Go to Employee > Personal
  • On the right-hand side of the screen, you will see a Menu with different ACTIONS 

A new window will pop up where you can fill in all the information needed for the shift plan.

Note: Some information in this form will appear completed/read-only, since you already filled it in when creating the employee profile for the first time.
