Budget notifications

WorkSked Budgets allow administrators to provide guidance to department managers when creating schedules by specifying an hourly allotment for a time period. We are introducing two new related features: ➀ budget warnings; and ➁ budget notifications.

Budget warnings are displayed when managers publish schedules that have more scheduled than budgeted hours for the week.

Budget Warning

Budget notifications are emails that are sent when a schedule is over budget. Administrators can subscribe to them in Locations, Departments and Positions; same place the department managers and schedule notifications are configured.

Budget Notifications

Below is an example of an over budget email notification sent to an administrator. Whenever a schedule that is over budget is published, the assigned administrators will receive a similar email notification.
