Station Section

Stations are work positions with shifts assigned at the location.


How does this functionality help you? 

  • The Enterprise controls the stations that locations can use. 
  • The Enterprise determines what station information is editable by location users. 
  • Employees must be given a skill level at the location to be able to work at a station. 

Adding Stations- Enterprise Entry Only

  1. Open the Station Section. 
  2. Open the Tools folder, click on the Add Station link.

     

  3. The Enterprise must add the station and assign it to locations for use.
