Staff Events

Staff Events can be setup for a variety of reasons and can also be used to collect optional feedback from staff.

The events are always optional and can be opened to just particular skills and venues within the organisation.

Each event has the following settings:

  • Title
    Title for the event that will be shown to staff.
  • Start
    Start date and time for the event
  • End
    End date and time for the event
  • Description
    For telling the staff what the event is about.
  • Spaces
    How many staff members can sign up for this event. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited number.
  • Lock Sign Up
    This is the date and time that sign up to the event will be locked. Staff will be told this time so they can sign up before the cut off time. Useful if the event requires organisation once numbers and answers have been received.
  • Roles
    These are the roles that the event is open to. You can use the checked and unchecked icons at the top to select all or unselect all options. Only staff with one of the selected roles assigned will be shown the event.
  • Venues
    This allows the event to be assigned to just a single venue or to an operations group. Only staff assigned to the venue/venues in the opts group will see the event
  • Active
    This allows you to prepare an event but not have it shown to staff until you activate it.

Staff can only sign up to an event if they are not booked on shifts or training at the same time. Once they have registered, StaffSavvy will not allow them to be scheduled for shifts or booked on training at the same time.

Adding Sign Up Options

Click on the Options to create and edit questions. Then use the form at the top of the page to add a question. Once the question is in the list below then you can click on the blue form icon to edit the answers for that question.

To add an answer to the question, enter the label shown to staff and a value you want to see in the results (they can be the same). Then click Add Item.

At the moment, it is not possible to edit an answer so simply remove it and add a new one to replace it. Use the blue arrows to move the items in the list.

You can also set a default answers if required by using the green label icon.

All of the changes are updated and saved instantly so just close the popup when you are finished.

Viewing the Event Information

You can view a summary of the responses using the view report on the event listing page. This will also provide you with a CSV export of each staff member’s response.
