JUNE 2023 Product Updates

You will notice a number of small but powerful improvements and features that went live in June 2023 on your RosterElf account. 

1. Free Accountant and Bookkeeper Access. 

For many of our customers, your trusted accountant or bookkeeper is integral to your operation, assisting with payroll and employee setup. 

That's why we have decided to allow users to add a FREE account for accountants and bookkeepers.

2. Improved Employee Permissions 

RosterElf has a range of permission levels to enable you to ensure each employee has the right access. However, in June, we greatly improved the usability.

Admins can now view, filter and edit employee permissions directly from the staff tab.

3. Switching Between Multiple Accounts

Many of our customers have more than one RosterElf account and need to switch between accounts.  

We have improved this feature, making switching between accounts easier than ever.

4. New Reports Module

In June, we launched our new reports module which you will now see live on your account. 

All reports have a new, cleaner designer and users can mark their most used reports as a 'Favourite' to make quick access easy. 

Whilst only two reports are live on this new module, we will be pushing over 30 reports live over coming weeks.

Thanks to everyone that has provided feature requests on our Feature Request page. One of our most feature-packed releases is currently in the works. The Roster screen is a screen that is heavily used in the system, and we have listened to the feature requests and have some exciting news in store.

Some of the exciting improvements to Rosters are:

  • Move week to week in the roster
  • Copy and paste shifts to a new day
  • Add repeating shifts
  • Comprehensive filtering and roster viewing options
  • Ability to have a different roster cycle to payroll cycle
  • Ability to roster fortnightly
  • Better roster print-outs
  • Improvements to roster templates
  • Click anywhere in the roster to add a shift
  • Single view rostering - the ability to add draft shifts into a published roster
  • Publish single-shift changes
  • Substantial rostering improvements for NDIS and other service industries which require rostering across large volumes of client's homes
  • Live roster warning system
  • View shifts that are currently pending shift swaps
  • Improved Revenue Forecasting options
  • Reworked create shift modal
  • Custom unpaid breaks for shifts
  • Set the break start time
  • Improved costing in the create shift modal

This will be a large scope of work that will significantly improve the user experience for rostering but will also come with a completely new look and feel. So in future updates before the release, we will announce webinar training to assist with the transition.
