Business decline as a shift end time

Jordan Boesch

By Jordan Boesch

In the food service industry (restaurants, bars etc), it’s common to send an employee home when business dies down. This means that publishing a shift for that employee until a specific time or until close wouldn’t suffice. To remedy this problem, we’ve introduced a shift end time labelled “BD”, with BD standing for business decline.

To schedule an employee until “BD”, go to the schedules page, then click on the plus button to add a shift. You will see a checkbox that says “BD”.


Checking that off and publishing the schedule will alert that employee that they’re working until business decline.
