Shift notes for restaurant managers

Keep your whole
team in sync

Publish daily notes to managers

Ensure every manager stays up-to-date with the goings on of your restaurant by publishing log book entries or daily summaries to your management team. Off-duty managers can be part of the conversation by reviewing or replying to any new entries.

Get past entries at your fingertips

You have your restaurant’s operational history at your fingertips with the cloud-based log book—meaning you can search, sort, or review any entries on your mobile or desktop device. Pick up recurring trends in your historical entries to uncover any problems that need addressing—like consistent fridge repairs or recurring customer complaints.

Let your team’s voice be heard with automated feedback surveys sent after every shift. Any feedback can be kept anonymous to ensure your staff feel comfortable sharing their insights.

Identify problems and support your team

With aggregate shift feedback scores fed directly into the Manager Log Book, your management team can proactively manage staff and identify opportunities to improve restaurant operations—and employee satisfaction.

"My schedule writing days are over but I still use the app to get daily recaps from all of my restaurants on the flow of service, 86'd items, sales, and employee progress. With the Manager Log book you can customize each section, add as many areas or as few as you want... Or search an employees name for an easy way to find feedback for quarterly evaluations."

The best private communication channel for managers

With the manager log book, your management team can communicate with each other privately about the goings-on in the restaurant. Even if managers don’t have overlapping shifts, keeping in-sync with daily shift activities, upcoming events and parties, maintenance issues and more can be important for the smooth functioning of the business. The manager log book feature is completely customizable—anything your managers need to share with other members of the management team can be done in the restaurant’s daily log book.

Managers can keep a pulse on team satisfaction and engagement with Shift Feedback, which prompts employees to provide feedback on their shift to the management team after they’ve clocked out. By tracking trends in satisfaction and employee happiness, at-risk employees or problematic shifts can be identified and dealt with to improve restaurant operations.

The manager log book is completely searchable so your team can always find older activity logs from weeks, months, or even years prior. All entries are archived by date and customizable category so you can always find what you’re looking for.

An easy-to-use daily log book is essential for restaurants, and now you can keep your entire management team in-sync across shifts, activities, and more for a more productive workplace.
