Detailed description of the functionalities of the R&R Job App
On the basis of the descriptions below, we would like to explain to you how the R&R Job App works in practice.
Current work schedule
Would you like to effortlessly provide employees with an overview of their schedules? Then our R&R job app is the answer. As soon as you have decided the schedule for your employees in R&R WFM, it is automatically posted on the R&R Job App.
Employees can then view their own schedule for the relevant weeks. Have any changes been made to the schedule in the meantime? No problem. The app automatically implements these changes to the schedule, and always provides employees with access to the most up-to-date schedule.
Do you have school-age employees or those who still attend school? These employees can simply import their school schedules into the R&R job app and amend them when and if necessary.
The app automatically calculates how many hours per day a student can work based on their school schedule. Also, you will know when an employee is available and when they need to attend school.
Do employees regularly ask to make changes to their schedules? With our app, it becomes easy for employees to swap shifts themselves. This can be implemented up to 72 hours before the start of their shift. The app automatically checks whether there are employees available to take over the shift, and who also meet the necessary criteria.
Those that meet these criteria and are available will receive a request from the employee. They can then indicate whether they wish to take over the shifts. The manager will receive an overview of all employees willing to take over the shift. A check is carried out as to whether these employees comply with the Working Hours Act regarding the relevant shift.
Based on this, you can select the employee best placed to substitute the other employee, or you can simply decline the employee’s request. This is then automatically processed in R&R WFM and communicated to your employees.
Did you know that it is easy for your employees to request leave via our job app? Just click on ‘Leave’ and then on ‘Request’ in the app. Next, submit your request. The date should be at least 14 days in the future so that it can be incorporated into the schedule. After approval from the manager, this will be viewable in the app, and is automatically processed in R&R WFM. All this prevents unnecessary work.
Do employees regularly ask you about their remaining leave balance? This question becomes redundant when you use the R&R Job App, as employees can see their own up-to-date annual leave balance in hours. They will know exactly how many more hours of leave they can take. It’s that easy! They can also simply submit annual leave requests via the app. Their manager can then approve the request, and it automatically appears in R&R.
If an employee changes their availability in the app, then this is automatically shown in the software through a notification, and an alert is included in the schedule. This message is shown for 3 days after the change was made.
Employee availability is managed in the ‘Standard Availability’ screen in the software. If an employee is not available, a message is displayed in the schedule. This makes scheduling easier and more transparent, as you will have a clear overview of all the available and unavailable employees.
Do you regularly get the question from employees how many hours they have worked in a specific week? In the R&R Job App, employees can view their hour registration themselves. Up to a maximum of 7 weeks back. They can see the hours worked after these have been finalised in R&R WFM during payment.
Not only can employees see the start and finish times in the summary for the days worked, they can also see the net hours they worked on a particular day. If any information is incorrect, this can be amended by the department head or manager in R&R. After the relevant week has been revised in R&R WFM, it is also automatically corrected in the employee’s R&R Job App.
