Click the “Reset” button to reset the advanced search bar entries and bring the events to view back to today.

Creating New Event: 

Click “New Event” or “Booking” which will open a small window.

Fill out the fields and click create.

5.4 Recruitment

Recruit Cards Page — Admin Access

Definitions:
Recruiter — Administrator or Duty Manager User accessing the Admin Portal to use the Recruit Cards page to perform the tasks necessary to assist recruits to complete the recruitment process.

Recruit — Crew User accessing the Crew Portal to complete the recruitment process.

Applicant — Crew User accessing the Sign-Up page to register themselves as potential recruits.

Contacts (Header) > Recruit Cards

CrewCard’s Recruitment Module allows you to onboard new staff members directly into your CrewCard platform for recruitment. Recruits can access their Crew Portal Profile to complete the onboarding process once they have been invited either by a recruiter (Admin or Duty Manager User) or when Recruitment Settings are configured to allow for automatic invitations — Auto Invite.

Add Recruit

 There are two methods to initiate the recruitment process and create a Recruit Card in the Admin Portal for a recruit: Enrollment and Registration.

Enrollment. A recruit is enrolled into the system by an Admin or Duty Manager User by pressing the Add New on the Recruit Cards page.

Registration. A recruit registers themselves into the system on the Sign-Up Page.

During the onboarding process, a recruit completes a series of stages of recruitment until they are Activated by a recruiter (Admin / Duty Manager User) which moves them into the active Crew List at Contacts > Crew List.

Stages of recruitment are Enrolled / Registered, Shortlisted, Invited, Pending, Completed, Hidden and Active which can be searched in the search header of the Recruit Cards page.

Enrollment

To enroll crew into your system click the Add New button.

A pop-out window will open, please fill out the fields.

After you click Save, you will be redirected to the individual’s recruits page, the recruit will receive an email of enrolment. Once enrolled the status on the card will be tagged as Enrolled.

Auto — Invite: 
Invitations are not required after registration.
There are two options for applicants to progress to the onboarding process from the Sign-Up page. Once applicants have either registered themselves from the Sign-Up page or been enrolled by a recruiter, they can be invited by the recruiter via an email with a once-only access token to open their Recruit Details page and continue the process of onboarding themselves as recruits. The Auto Invite option allows you to bypass the step of Recruiters manually inviting recruits to set their password, fill in their personal details, qualifications, experience, medical history, agreements, contract, induction and accounts so that once an applicant has registered on the Sign-Up page, they can progress to the next steps without the need for an email invitation.

Recruitment Page Tabs

Crew Profile > Crew Access

Recruits (staff) can access their Crew Profile to self-register as recruits, which can also be viewed in the Recruit Cards page in the Admin Portal (admin access).

Admin Users and Duty Manager Users can view the same recruitment details as the recruits by clicking on a Recruit Card on the Recruit Cards Page at Contacts > Recruit Cards.

The Crew Portal Profile page contains several pages for recruits to navigate in order to complete their onboarding process. Admin and Duty Manager Users can access the Recruit Cards to view the Bio, Overview, Interview, Details, Agreements, Induction, Contracts, Accounts, Approval and Activate tabs.

To hide any of the Interview, Details, Agreements, Inductions, Contracts, Accounts pages from recruits please untick any of the below settings.

Interview: Admin or Duty Manager Users performing the function of Recruiters can add Admin notes, set interview questions, send predefined SMS messages to recruits (perhaps to inform them to expect a call from a certain phone number to discuss their recruitment) and view the CV of recruits.

Customise the questions that you may need to ask the recruit during a phone or in-person interview.

Agreements: Recruiters (Admin and Duty Manager) Users can assign company policies and other documents from the Resources Module in Settings and create disclaimer questions for recruits to view, sign and submit. The Agreements Invite button at the bottom of the page sends an email to the recruit with a button that links directly to the Agreements page of their Crew Portal Profile, inviting them to agree to the company policies and agreements and to accept the disclaimers, sign their signature and submit. At this point the Recruit has accepted your company’s legal requirements for employment and the Profile Completed email is automatically sent to both the recruit and Administrator with two PDF attachments and a record of the agreements that have been accepted, plus a copy of the captured signature. The PDF attachments can be uploaded in the Recruitment Settings page and can be chosen by the Administrator. An example is PDF 1 may contain ‘Welcome Information’ outlining your expectations to new staff members and PDF 2 may contain ‘Safety Handbook’. The agreements information and captured signature is also permanently stored within the Crew Profile.

Inductions: Recruits can complete a multiple-choice quiz to demonstrate their knowledge of your company’s work health and safety system such as how to submit an incident report, for example. Customise induction questions in Settings > Forms > Recruit Induction. To remove the induction tab for recruits, please hide the tab.

Customise induction questions in by going through Settings>Forms>Recruit Induction. To remove the induction tab for recruits, please hide the tab.

Contracts: To add new contracts, see Settings > Contract Settings.

The Default Activity will be already assigned as will any Activities that the applicant selected on the Sign-Up Page.

 Assigned Categories — Contacts > Recruit Card > Interview Tab

The Default Category selected in the Recruit Settings will be already assigned in the Recruit Card for each recruit.

Activity Details

Activity Details displays a table with a combination of Activity, Minimum Rate and Description for each Activity assigned to the recruit. 

By displaying the Activity Details on the Agreements page, recruits are accepting the initial pay rates as part of their acceptance of their employment obligations.

The Activity Details can also be inserted into their employment contract, displayed on the Contract page of their Crew Portal Profile, or indeed any contract, by inserting the placeholder [ACTIVITY_DETAILS] into the text of the contract when you create or edit a contract in Settings > Contracts > Add Contract. The contract will automatically contain the Activities, pay rates and job description for those Activities in the employment contract for recruits to agree to without the need for any member of staff to manually insert such details.

Click “Tags” button, a drop-down list appears, click “Add New Tag”, click Save at the bottom of the job sheet page. Once created, all tags will appear in the drop-down list under “Tags”, where they can be selected or deselected. Selected Tag will appear on the Ops Home page and can help to categorise different job sheets. For example, a tag named “Xmas” can be created and all job sheets related to Christmas can be tagged for an easy view on the jobs page.

Confirmed:

If a shift has been saved with a crew member assigned to it and you press CONFIRM for that particular shift, the SMS page will bring up the ‘confirmed’ message for the selected shift to be sent to the crew member once more.

If numerous shifts have been selected then all the SMS will be brought up with their respective ‘confirmed’ messages. This message can be modified or completely deleted and a new message can be entered manually.

The message will appear: ‘Confirmed: “Date”, “Time On” (Minus 15 mins) until, “Time Off” approx, at “Venue”, “Meeting Place Address”, “Client”, “Onsite Contact Name”, “Onsite Contact Mobile”, cheers’

For example, the SMS will appear like this:Confirmed: Fri 25-05, 08:15am — 11:30am approx, at Opera House, Stage Door, SHS, Dave Neil, 0412968412, cheers’

Tip: When you can’t find crew or Staff for a shift or job, please make sure to check that:

  • Activity is assigned
  • Crew/Staff is assigned to the correct business
  • Crew/Staff Groups
  • Incompatibility (This function makes Crew Members incompatible with certain Clients. This will remove their names from the list of the available crew when issuing shifts out for a particular client, making it impossible to send certain staff to certain clients.)

Auto Cancel/ Delete

Auto Cancel/ Remove

Auto Time Change

Scheduler/Auto: Please see guide 4.3

Offer Message:

This option is used when sending out ‘shift offer messages’ to staff members. Click and a page called ‘MultiSMS’ opens up, which allows you to offer shift/s to multiple staff members. The default SMS appears in the text box (editable and customisable in global settings) with another box with the list of crews that are assigned to the activity.

In this list, crew members have an asterisk (*) next to their name indicates that they are booked at that time, or a hash symbol (#) next to their name which indicates they entered their unavailability. Any other crew members are available for shifts.

Offer Same: The ‘same crew’ SMS feature works in two ways.

  1. You can book multiple people on several shifts, with a view to keep consistent staff booked on those shifts, provided you select an equal number of shifts on each occasion. For example, if on the shifts page you had four shifts for four people from 8am to 12pm and you needed the same four people to return on four subsequent shifts, perhaps that evening from 8pm to 11pm, you would have to select all eight shifts (it has to be an even number of both to work, four morning shifts and four evening shifts) and choose “Message Same Crew Shifts” in the “Select an Action” drop down list or press the edit (pencil icon) to enter the Shift Edit Page, then leave the Crew Member name blank, press “Offer Shift Same Crew”. This will bring up the default SMS (customisable and editable) and a crew list of available crew for that activity. Once again, crew that are already booked in all time slots will have an asterisk * next to their name and those that have entered their own unavailability will have a hash # next to their name. In this same crew SMS mode, if a Crew Member is already booked for one but not all of the shifts, a *+ will appear next their name and if they have made themselves unavailable for one but not all of the shifts, a #+ will appear next to their name. The message will create one shift number for both (or all shifts) but will offer crew both shifts in the same message. Depending on how you have set the default settings for the same crew SMS message in global settings, the message you’ve sent may look like this:

[715] Can you do 2 shifts, Sun 05-07, 07:45am — 12:00pm & Sun 05-07, 20:00pm — 23:00pm approx., at Cronulla Beach ? Client — X Productions. Reply 715Y for YES, 715N for NO. Await Confirmation.

The crew members are accepting both shifts by replying with 715Y. With this function, it would be possible to select all eight shifts (four in the morning and four in the evening) and send this message to eight or ten or twelve crew members (however many you think necessary to get the job filled). Once again, the system will wait the predetermined length of time that you have programmed into it; the first four of the highest ranking to reply in the affirmative will be awarded the job and will receive the confirmation messages. Those who missed out will receive the declined message to inform them that they will not be needed and to standby for more shifts. Once again, on the shifts page, it will be possible to see which shifts have been sent out using the ‘Offer Shifts Same Crew’ feature. In the shifts, under the SMS field, it will show SC “?” and the shift number created by the system for these shifts, which is, in this example, SC (715). There will be “?” next to the SC (715) of the first of these ‘linked’ shifts. When the “?” icon is clicked, a list will open of all the crew you sent the ‘same crew SMS message’ to, including the time the message was sent. As you refresh the page you will see Y and N appear after the names of the Crew Members that have responded yes or no to the shifts and the times they responded.

  1. The second way that the “Message Same Crew Shifts” can work is offering multiple shifts (under different clients and job sheets) to one crew member, for example an entire week or fortnight’s work. In the shifts page, you need to select all the shifts that you wish to offer to the one crew member, and press the edit (pencil icon) to open the shift edit page. Press the “Offer Shift Same Crew” button, select the crew member you wish to offer the shifts to from the crew list and press “Send SMS”. The content of the SMS will say how many shifts are being offered along with dates, times and locations.

Offer Multi: The ‘Multi Roster Message’ option works the same way as the Message Same Crew Shifts.

Message Multi Roster Shifts allows you to offer several shifts in one SMS/Email to a staff member/s. If they accept the shifts offered, they receive a confirmation SMS with the details of all their shifts in one SMS/Email.

On the shifts Page, at the bottom of the screen under “Select an Action”, and in the shift edit page and the job sheets pages, there is the option “Message Multi Roster Shifts”. This feature allows you to offer multiple shifts to a crew member or several crew members in a single message (SMS/Email) per crew member. The crew member/s only need to reply with a single SMS accept to be confirmed for all shifts.

For example: You could create an entire roster for the following week, select all the shifts you want in the shifts page, scroll down the bottom of the page, under “Select an Action”, select the “Message Multi Roster Shifts”. All shifts will be presented in SMS/format to the staff to accept the shifts in one go. When the crew members accept the shifts, they will automatically be sent confirm multi messages (after the predetermined length of time that is customisable in global settings under “SMS Incoming Configuration”, after “Incoming SMS Accept Shifts Interval”).

Confirm Shift: By selecting shift/s and clicking this option, you simply make a crew member/s confirmed for a shift without sending them a Confirmation Message. Their name will appear black on the shifts Page with a C next to it (under the SMS field) which indicates they have confirmed.

Confirm Message: This will send a confirmation message to the crew who is booked for the shift

Confirm Multi: Confirm multiple shift with the same crew 

Lock: Shifts must be locked with the correct times in order to be processed by payroll. Once the start/finish/break times are correct, shifts can be locked using this option from the drop down menu. Once locked, a padlock icon will appear next to the locked shift.

Admin Lock:  Shifts must be locked with the correct times in order to be processed by payroll. Once the start/finish/break times are ensured correct, shifts can be locked using this option from the drop-down menu. Once locked, a padlock icon with the word ‘ADMIN’ under it will appear next to each shift/s. Admin locked shifts can only be unlocked by ‘ADMIN’ users.

Payroll Lock: The job is locked for payroll the time sheet will be sent to be paid

Unlock: This option reverses the locked or admin locked actions.

Copy Shift (s): The selected shifts will be copied

Deleted Shift (s): The selected shifts will be deleted

Message Cancel & Delete Shift (s): Delete/cancel shift and a message will be sent to the crew member to notify them

Message Notify Staff of Change: The change in the selected shift will be sent to the crew

Highlight Shift(s): Highlight the shift, this reminds you to make changes to it

Reasons for Job Sheet Highlight:

  1. Copied Shift
  2. RP update
  3. Highlight option
  4. Copied shift that has been locked (Lock, Admin Lock and Payroll Lock)

Remove Shift(s) Highlighting: This removes the highlight from the shift.

9.1.2 Performance of Crew Calculation

The overall performance rating of a crew member is a measurement of the performance of the crew in terms of experience, crew rating/feedbacks, and reliability. Each crew member is awarded a score out of 100 that is derived from a combination of their star rating (out of 5), experience level (out of 5), reliability level (out of 5) and recent activity level (out of 5) with the formula weighted most heavily on their recent activity level rating.

Score formula:
((Experience) + Rating + Experience # Days + Reliability*#) *#)

Star Rating:
Star ratings default to a rating of 2DF for crew members not yet rated (DF = Default). Once they are rated in the calendar or app, they will earn an average star rating.

Shift Acceptance Rate:
The shift acceptance rate displays the average acceptance from crew. It shows acceptance rate within 30 days, 90 days, and 14 days.

Experience:
In the dropdown menu for experience, select 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. If you select default for the experience, the rating will be calculated automatically.

Experience Levels are 1 — 5 from least experienced to most experienced. This is defaulted to the total hours crew have worked in the system and are calculated as follows:
Level 0 — 0 Hrs
Level 1 < 100 Hrs
Level 2 100 — 200 Hrs
Level 3 200 — 500 Hrs
Level 4 500 — 1000 Hrs
Level 5 > 1000 Hrs

Once the default setting has been replaced, the experience level will no longer display DF for default.

Example: if a crew member with a lot of industry experience came to work for Show Support, then a level of 1 would not be appropriate and would adversely affect their score. In these cases, we can assign a higher level, such as 4 or 5. The DF will no longer appear after the number to display that the experience level has been manually updated.

Reliability:
Reliability rating from the dropdown menu. Reliability levels are 1 (least) — 5 (most) reliable. Reliability levels default to 5 for all crew. Reliability levels MUST be updated manually (under experience/reliability in their crew profiles) as follows:
Level 5 — No blow outs, no lateness, perfectly reliable.
Level 4 — 1 Blow Out and/or 2 Times Late in the last 12 months
Level 3 — 2 Blow Outs and/or 4 Times Late in the last 12 months
Level 2 — 3 Blow Outs and/or 6 Times Late in the last 12 months
Level 1 — 4 Blow Outs and/or 8 Times Late in the last 12 months

Bias:
Aside from experience and reliability, you can also enter bias in the crew profile page. Only admin has access to this feature. If you are using a different login credential, this option will not appear. Enter the value of bias in the provided field.

Recent Activity:

Recent Activity Levels are 0 (least) — 5 (most) active. Recent activity is based on the number of hours a Crew member has worked in the last 60 days.
Level 0 — 0 Hrs
Level 1 — 0 — 75 Hrs
Level 2 — 75 — 150 Hrs
Level 3 — 150 — 250 Hrs
Level 4 — 250 — 340 Hrs
Level 5 — 340 Hrs

Ranking Using Crew Score:

You can order ranks by hours, score or inactive.

  • Score
  • Bias
  • Hrs — Total Working Hours of the Crew
  • Hrs 7 — Total Working Hours of the Crew within a week
  • EXP — the experience rating
  • REL — the reliability rating
  • REC — the recent activity rating.

9.3 Contracts

Crew members are sent an email invitation to accept contracts. They simply open the contract from a link in the email, review and sign it with their finger and then press submit. The final copy is emailed to the staff member and to Admin as a PDF attachment and is permanently stored in the CrewCard system. 

The process of creating contracts in CrewCard is very easy. Each contract can be added in under one minute or as long as it takes to enter the contract name, copy and paste the content, select a signature block and press save. Assigning signature blocks to your contracts means they are ‘pre-signed’ by the authorised representative from your organisation so only the recipient needs to sign and submit. Different contracts can be saved with different signature blocks. For example, a manager’s name, position and signature can be preloaded into the contract as a signature block so they will not need to sign each time the contract is executed. 

How to Add Contracts

To create contracts, go to Settings and select Contracts in the side left menu. 

Create a Signature 

You will need at least one Signature to be able to create a contract. 

To add a signature, click + Add Signature in the top left of the page. Complete the three required fields, Signature Block Name, Manager Name and Job Role. Signature Block Name refers to the name of the Signature that will be added to the contract as the signatory from your organisation. Manager Name refers to the name of the person signing — e.g. John Smith — and Job Role refers to the position of the manager signing — e.g. General Manager. The last field is the signature itself where the manager must sign using their mouse or touch screen to get the closest result possible to a hand-drawn signature. 

You may save several signatures in your Contract settings for different managers to be added to different contracts, but you can only add one signature to a contract. For example, you might have two contracts, one to be signed by the General Manager and another to be signed by the Managing Director, with the signatures for the correct manager applied to each contract.

Once a signature has been created and saved it will appear in the Signature list below the Add Signature section from where it can be edited or deleted.

Create a Contract

To add a contract, click the + Add Contract button below the Signature List.

Simply fill in the Title with the name of the contract and copy and paste the main content of the contract into the text editor below and then select a Signature from the drop down and press Save.

For employment contracts, you can insert the Activity Details by inserting the placeholder [ACTIVITY_DETAILS] at the desired place inside the contract and this will automatically pull in the Activity, Activity Description and Minimum Rate of the various Activities that have been assigned to crew members or recruits. Note, you will need to ensure the correct Categories and Activities have been assigned for this feature to function correctly. See Activity Descriptions in the User Guide for more information.

Once a contract has been created and saved it will appear in the Contract list below the Add Contract section from where it can be edited or deleted.

How Contracts are signed

There are three methods for getting contracts signed and saved in CrewCard.

  1. Recruit Contracts

Employment contracts that may be required to be accepted by new staff members as part of their onboarding process can be included via the Recruitment module. Go to Settings > Recruitment in the left side menu then scroll down to the Contract section. Select the desired contract from the Choose Contract drop down and then press Save Contract. Once contracts have been saved, they appear in the Contract form list and can be deleted if required. 

Recruits are onboarded in their Crew Portal Profile where there is a Contracts page that is optional for inclusion by the Administrator as some users may prefer to include the contract in the Agreements page. 

A recruit may locate, read and sign the contract during their onboarding process by following the steps from registration through to entering their accounts details. Recruits may also be invited to sign a contract by clicking the Invite Contract button at the bottom of the Contracts tab inside their Recruit Card in the Admin Portal. 

Invite Contract will send a Contract Invitation email to the recruit with a link to the contract page of their Crew Portal Profile indicated by the Click Here button in the email. Once inside the Contracts page, the Recruit selects the contract to open, review and sign on their mobile device (or use their pre-saved signature) and press the Submit button at the bottom.

Once the contract has been signed by the recruit, the physical contract is generated as a PDF attachment to an email sent both to the recruit and to Admin. The PDF displays the name, details and address of the staff member and the signature blocks of both the staff member and the manager. Additionally, the contract PDF is permanently saved to the Crew Profile of the recruit to be accessed at any time.

9.4 Actions Forms

Actions forms are custom online forms for your staff to complete.

CrewCard offers as many online forms to help you manage your business as you need.

For example, you may need pre-start safety checklists, or office inductions, workplace inspections, or equipment sign-out forms. CrewCard can tailor such forms with checkboxes, text fields, images, links, checkboxes and yes or no questions for your staff to complete, sign and submit using their mobile device. In addition, any of your company policies, documents, SWMS and Toolbox Talks can also be included in these forms, providing you with fully fledged and dynamic safety inductions for every occasion.

The possibilities for potential Actions forms that can be added to your CrewCard system are as endless as your imagination. Furthermore, these forms are linked to your scheduling system for staff to complete when required, all conveniently saved in your CrewCard Admin Portal once completed as proof of acceptance and a helpful Admin email to let you know. CrewCard’s Actions forms automate your workflow by saving you from having to remember and follow up all the various agreements staff have to complete during the course of their work.

Actions are responsive web pages that can be accessed by your staff in their Actions page, emailed either manually or automatically with a link contained in the body of the email prompting the recipient to open the page and complete the form. The link is authenticated to log the crew user directly into their Crew Portal to complete, sign and submit the form. Once the form has been completed, an email is sent to Admin with proof of the agreement and the completed form is saved inside the Crew Profile in your Admin Portal along with the staff’s signature. The forms can also be accessed from the Forms Matrix, so that any agreements made by staff will be saved permanently in your CrewCard system.

Actions forms can be emailed manually at any time from within the Crew Profile in the Admin Portal and located using the side menu Invite Action option. Simply select the Action from the drop down list and then click Send Invite to manually trigger the email to be sent to your crew member.

Skills
Automated Actions emails can be programmed to be sent to crew members according to their skills, such as labourer or delivery driver. One or several skills (activities) may be selected, or all skills in the event the form applies to everyone in your organisation.

Frequency
Forms can also be provided to staff at certain programmed times, such as the first time they are confirmed on a shift, or every time they are confirmed, monthly, quarterly, every six months or every year. For example, you may have a Forklift Induction that needs to be sent to a Forklift driver prior to their first shift, or you may require staff to complete a questionnaire every year to prove they are up to date with your latest policies and procedures. The best thing about using CrewCard for your forms is that it is connected to your rostering and scheduling solution, so Actions are only sent to staff as and when required, when they are booked. What is the point of emailing an induction reminder every 12 months to a staff member that no longer works for you?

Simply contact the CrewCard team with your requests for custom paperless forms and we will have them integrated into your platform ASAP. Simple forms can be produced on the same day, complex forms may take a bit longer.

These Resources can be a policy, procedure or any other important information that the crew can access using the Crew Access or via the app. There is no need for an  additional software to view the online content. Resources can be easily used in other sections of the CrewCard system such as Recruitment, Actions and Forms. When a resource is edited, it will be displayed automatically across the software.

10.8.1 Adding a Resource

10.9 Processes settings

Improve the efficiency of your workplace by adding all of your company processes into CrewCard so they are easily accessible to your office team members as responsive web pages.

CrewCard includes a complete internal documentation module to record and provide access for admin and duty manager users to all of your internal user guides, training and company processes in an easy to navigate, user-friendly interface stored within the secure environment of your CrewCard Admin Portal.

It makes sense for the instructions for your office workers to be on the same platform as the one that they use to roster and manage staff, which also reduces time and financial costs to the organisation of maintaining many separate systems for the same workflow. Some of the advantages for clearly documenting your processes for staff are:

  • Processes help employees complete their work tasks as expected
  • Employees learn responsibilities autonomously without needing to over consult with supervisors
  • Scripts can be accessed via the processes for telephone workers to recite
  • Online processes minimise errors and reduce the chance of employees not following company processes correctly
  • Employees can access processes at anytime and from any location
  • Reduce training and internal emails / communications

 

To access the processes page, click Records in the header and select Processes under the Logs column. A list of processes will appear divided into sections under their relevant headings. Process titles and keywords within the processes will result from the search terms used, allowing the admin or duty manager user or the crew user to quickly access the required information to perform their work.

The processes module works in much the same way as the resources module.

To create and add a new process, go to settings and then scroll down to the Processes tab in the left-hand side menu. Click the + Add Process button on the top left-hand side to create a new process. Add the title and the body of the process in the text editor below it. It is possible to attach images and links to web pages and videos to make your processes as informative as possible. Once the content has been added, click Save in the bottom right-hand side of the process.

Once you have created some processes, you can assign them to the Admin Portal for admin and duty manager users and the Crew Portal for crew users. Within these portals, the processes can be organised under headings by clicking + Heading on the bottom left and then pressing the Save Heading button next to it.

Once the heading is saved, a table will appear with the heading title in grey and the buttons + Process and Save Process to the right of it. Once the + Process button is clicked, a drop down menu will appear. Simply select the desired process from here and then press Save Process above. Repeat this process until the list of processes is added under the heading. Continue to add headings and processes as required in the Admin Portal and/or Crew Portal sections of the processes settings.

10.10 Forms Settings

Access Policies Online

CrewCard allows you to add your company policies as responsive web pages or uploaded attachments for your crew members to access within their Crew Portal. In fact, any documentation can be added via the Resources module.  

We have generic policies available to be integrated into your CrewCard system by our team and can offer 3 complimentary policies from the list below for our existing customers:

  • Anti Discrimination Policy
  • Social Media Policy
  • Use of Company Resources
  • Drug and Alcohol Policy
  • Privacy Policy
  • Sexual Harassment Policy
  • Covid-Safe Plan

Company policies and other documentation can be created and stored in the Resources settings of the Admin Portal. Resources can be used for any type of documentation you require, company policies being only one such example.

To add company policies, go to Settings then click Resources in the side left menu. Click the + Add Resource button top left to create a new Resource. Add the Title and the content of the Resource in the text editor below. It is possible to attach images and links to web pages and videos to make your resources as informative as possible. Once the content has been added, click Save in the bottom right of the Resource. 

Once your resources have been created they can be added to the Crew Portal and the Recruitment module for staff to accept during the onboarding process for your company.

Within the Crew Portal, the resources can be organised under Headings by clicking + Heading on the bottom left and then pressing the Save Heading button next to it. 

Once the heading is saved a table will appear with the heading title in grey and the buttons + Resource and Save Resource to the right of it. Once the + Resource button is clicked, a drop down menu will appear. Simply select the desired resource from here and then press Save Resource above. Repeat this process until the list of resources is added under the heading. Continue to add Headings and Resources as required in the Crew Portal section of the Resources Setting.

Company policies and other documents (resources) can be assigned into the Agreements page of the Crew Portal Profile for recruits to view, sign and submit. Go to Settings and select Recruitment from the side menu. Scroll down to the Resources section and select the desired Resources from the Choose Resource drop down menu and then press Save Resource. The order the resources will appear in the Agreements page for recruits can be altered by dragging the resources up and down on the left of the table using the drag icon buttons.

  • Crew name appears as black when crew member/s has confirmed and accepted.
  • Crew Name appears as red to indicate crew has denied the changes and ‘D’ (Denied) also appear in message column.

Scheduler/ auto: Please see guide 4.3.

Offer Message:

This option is used when sending out shift offer messages to staff members. Click, and a page called ‘MultiSMS’ will open up which allows you to offer shift/s to multiple staff members. The default SMS appears in the text box (editable and customisable in Global Settings) with another box with the list of Crews that are assigned to the activity.

In this list, crew members have an asterisk next to their name to indicate that they are booked at that time, or a hash symbol (#) next to their name which indicates they entered their unavailability. Any other crew members are available for shifts.

Offer Same: The Same Crew SMS features works in two ways.

1. You can book multiple people on several shifts, with a view to keeping consistent staff booked on those shifts, provided you select an equal number of shifts on each occasion. For example, if on the shifts page, you had four shifts for four people from 8am to 12pm and you needed the same four people to return on four subsequent shifts, perhaps that evening from 8pm to 11pm, you would have to select all eight shifts (it has to be an even number of both to work, four morning shifts and four evening shifts) and choose “Message Same Crew Shifts” in the “Select an Action drop down list or press the edit (pencil icon) to enter the Shift Edit Page, then leaving the Crew Member name blank, press “Offer Shift Same Crew”. This will bring up the default SMS (customisable, editable) and a crew list of available crew for that Activity. Once again crew that are already booked in all time slots will have an asterisk * next to their name and those that have entered their own unavailability will have a hash symbol # next to their name. In this same crew SMS mode, if a crew member is already booked for one but not all of the shifts, a *+ will appear next their name and if they have made themselves unavailable for one but not all of the shifts a #+ will appear next to their name. The message will create one shift number for both (or all shifts) but will offer crew both shifts in the same message. Depending upon how you have set the default settings for the same crew SMS message in global settings, the message you’ve sent may look like this:

[715] Can you do 2 shifts, Sun 05-07, 07:45am — 12:00pm & Sun 05-07, 20:00pm — 23:00pm approx., at Cronulla Beach ? Client — X Productions. Reply 715Y for YES, 715N for NO. Await Confirmation.

The crew members are accepting both shifts by replying 715Y. With this function, it would be possible to select all eight shifts (four in the morning and four in the evening) and send this message to eight or ten or twelve crew members (however many you think necessary to get the job filled). Once again, the system will wait the predetermined length of time that you have programmed into it; the first four of the highest ranking to reply in the affirmative will be awarded the job and will receive the confirmation messages. Those who missed out will receive the declined message to inform them that they will not be needed and to stand by for more shifts. Once again, on the shifts page, it will be possible to see which shifts have been sent out using the offer shifts same crew feature because in the shifts, under the SMS field, it will show SC “?” and the shift number created by the system for these shifts, in this example SC (715). There will be the “?” next to the SC (715) of the first of these ‘linked’ shifts. If you pressed this “?” icon, a list will open showing all the crew you sent the Same Crew SMS message to, including the time the message was sent. As you refresh the page you will see Y and N appear after the names of the crew members that have responded yes or no to the shifts and the times they responded.

2. The second way that the “Message Same Crew Shifts” can work is offering multiple shifts (under different clients and job sheets) to one crew member, for example an entire week or fortnight’s work. In the shifts page, you need to select all the shifts that you wish to offer to the one crew member and press the edit (pencil icon) to open the shift edit page. Press the “Offer Shift Same Crew” button, select the crew member you wish to offer the shifts to from the crew list and press ‘Send SMS’. The content of the SMS will say how many shifts are being offered with dates, times and locations.

Offer Multi: Multi Roster Message option works the same way as the Message Same Crew Shifts. Message Multi Roster Shifts allows you to offer several shifts in one SMS/Email to a Staff Member/s. If they accept the shifts offered, they receive a Confirmation SMS with the details of all their shifts in one SMS/Email.
On the shifts Page, at the bottom of the screen under ‘Select an Action’, and in the shift edit page and the job sheets pages, there is the option ‘Message Multi Roster Shifts’. This feature allows you to offer multiple shifts to a Crew Member or several Crew Members in a single Message (SMS/Email) per crew member. The crew member/s only need to reply with a single SMS accept to be confirmed for all shifts.

For example: You could create an entire roster for the following week, select all the shifts you want in the Shifts Page, scroll down the bottom of the page, under “Select an Action” select the “Message Multi Roster Shifts”. All shifts will be presented in SMS/format to the staff to accept the shifts in one go. When the crew members accept the shifts, they will automatically be sent Confirm Multi Messages (after the predetermined length of time that is customisable in Global Settings under SMS Incoming Configuration, after Incoming SMS Accept Shifts Interval).

Confirm Shift: By selecting shift/s and clicking this option you simply make a Crew member/s confirmed for a shift without sending them a Confirmation Message. Their name will appear black on the shifts page with a C next to it (under the SMS field) indicates they have confirmed.

Confirm Message: This will send a confirmation message to the crew who is booked for the shift

Confirm Multi: Confirm multiple shift with the same crew 

Lock: Shifts must be locked with the correct times in order to be processed by payroll. Once the start/finish/break times are ensured correct, shifts can be locked using this option from the drop down menu. Once locked a padlock icon will appear next to the locked shift.

Admin Lock: Shifts must be locked with the correct times in order to be processed by payroll. Once the start/finish/break times are ensured correct, shifts can be locked using this option from the drop-down menu. Once locked a padlock icon with the word ADMIN under it will appear next to each shift/s. Admin locked shifts can only be unlocked by ADMIN users.

Payroll Lock: The job is locked for payroll the time sheet will be sent to be paid

14.0 Time Off In Lieu

Time Off In Lieu can be managed within the CrewCard Platform.

In the Crew Profile, select Time Off In Lieu from the side menu to navigate to the Time Off In Lieu (TOIL) section. Note that Full Time and Part time staff can fully utilise this function.

Here you can set the TOIL hours balance and TOIL period.  You may Contact CrewCard support to let us know the pay period options and which day of the week the pay period should commence.

TOIL Period refers to the amount of hours that staff are able to work before the time off in lieu is recorded.  It can be 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks or 4 weeks. For example, a staff member might have an agreed weekly working hours of 38 hours per week. Any work performed over and above 38 hours (minus breaks) will be added into the TOIL calculation. If the staff member had a balance of 0 hours and worked 45 hours in week 1 and then 48 hours in week 2, they will have an updated TOIL balance of 17 hours at the end of week 2. This means they can take 17 hours off work and still receive pay for these hours.

Please note that the CrewCard TOIL calculations work both ways. If we use the example above and the staff member in week 3 only worked 10 hours, 28 hours would be deducted from the balance of 17 hours and the TOIL balance would be reduced back to 0.

Click on TOIL history to see a breakdown of the TOIL balance for the staff member and the events that changed the balance, such as manual updates of the TOIL balance and system generated updates calculated each pay period according to the programmed logic.

There is a Time Off In Lieu page in the Admin menu that enables you to see the TOIL history for multiple staff and to search the TOIL history of staff. 

In this page, you can filter the crew member, crew group and the TOIL period based on the date. TOIL balance is updated weekly depending on the confirmed shift by the admin to the crew. You can Update the TOIL figures for shifts which are already existing in the system or allow users to manually update the TOIL Balance of all staff using the Refresh Button.

From this page, you can click the Forecast button to view the predictions of the TOIL balance in upcoming TOIL periods by looking at the Forecast Working Hours and Forecast Balance. In this page, you also can use the same filter as in the previous page.

You also can check the TOIL details of each crew in the Timesheet. In the timesheet page the TOIL balance is available including the following details: Toil Period, Previous Start, Previous End, Previous Balance, Current Start, Current End and Current Balance

In the event when the hrs./TOIL period was modified in the Crew Profile.

For example:  week 1, the set Hours/TOIL Period is 20 and in week 2, the Hours/TOIL Period was changed to 30. The first week will work based on 20 limits while the second week will work based on 30 limits however if you edit the shift for the first week then the calculation will update with new Hours/TOIL Period which is the 30 limits.
