What Is Timeline View Good For?
Okay, so you know what timeline view is but.. What's it good for? We'll tell you.
1. Schedules or days with a lot of employees scheduled at the same time.
Take a look at the schedule below; it's cram packed with employees. Any more and it'll start to be a real headache to see what's going on and make edits to the shifts.
However if we switch over to Timeline View... The whole mess suddenly becomes a lot more manageable.
2. It's easier to see by employee.
In traditional calendar format its difficult to see how many shifts an individual employee is scheduled for however with Timeline View this is no problem. Furthermore you can see additional employee centric detail such as how many hours an employee is currently scheduled for in this department (First number below their name) and across all departments (Second number).
