Today is an exciting day. We have officially launched our new Dashboard!

This has resulted from months of hard work by the whole team as we carefully planned and implemented this new feature.

The RosterElf team has carefully listened and tweaked this new release to provide the maximum possible value. We want to thank our clients who have provided great ideas and feedback in recent months as we look to make RosterElf even more powerful and valuable for your business.

The core aim of the Dashboard is to make the process of using RosterElf every week more straightforward and faster. We want to get you in and out of RosterElf as quickly as possible so you can focus on running and growing your business.

RosterElf's Dashboard is a fantastic way to keep up with all the essential data on your account in one simple view. From tasks you need to do to keep your account clean, and up to date to trends and a place to view and action a range of tasks, our Dashboard makes it easy!

To Do.

Our "To Do" section is the first one you will notice the next time you log in. This section aims to help you get the most out of your RosterElf account and keep you on top of tasks you need to do to keep your account up to date and the data clean. We will give you information such as:

* Employees who haven't been rostered for some time may have left and need to be made inactive.

* Employees missing pay-rate information, which could make your labour budgeting inaccurate.

* Employees who don't have an award or pay template assigned to them.

* Employees who have yet to log in, so you can quickly re-send them a password and login details.

Roster Trends.

This is a powerful element of the new Dashboard. With a click, filter between labour cost, average pay rate and hours to see trends in your business and make sure you're always on budget.

Our beautiful graph gives a visual understanding of your labour cost trends with details available just by scrolling over any data sets.

Shift Swaps.

Automatic shift swaps are a great feature of RosterElf, loved by our clients. But now, it has become even simpler to use and manage.

The Shift Swap section of your new Dashboard will give you the ability to view and action:

* Waiting. These are shift swaps requested by employees that are awaiting a replacement.

* Pending. Shift Swap requests made by employees where a replacement has been found and waiting for your approval will appear here.

* Archive. This section shows a complete history of all past shift swaps, approved and declined.


We have moved all notifications, including employee leave requests to your new Dashboard to make life even easier.

View pending leave requests, including detail at a click. If the leave request doesn't suit your business, you can quickly decline, and we will notify the employee for you.

You can now view all past leave requests, both approved and declined, by clicking on the "Archive" button. Easy!


If you're a customer using Clock-In-Out, your new Dashboard will display a live feed of clock-in-out activity for the current day.

Click on any record to see full event details, including employee photos and comments.

Staff Availability.

RosterElf removes the need to keep a record of staff availability as employees can enter the information themselves, keeping you updated as their situation changes.

Our new Dashboard displays changes in staff availability in a simple yet powerful way. Click on any update to see complete information on the change made.

We hope you love what we have created for you, our customers.

If you have any feedback or suggestions on the new Dashboard, please don't hesitate to drop me a line personally at
