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.
