Creating Workload Schemes - Tempo Server

Creating and deleting workload schemes requires the Tempo Administrator or Tempo Team Administrator permission.

Workload schemes contain information about the days and hours in different types of working weeks. Create or edit workload schemes to manage different types of users' workload. The required hours per day calculation is based on a user's workload scheme. You must assign all users to a Tempo workload scheme. New users are automatically added to the default Workload Scheme.

To create a workload scheme:

  1. Select Settings  in the Tempo sidebar.
  2. Under Working Days in the Settings sidebar, select Workload.
  3. In the Workload view, fill in the fields at the top of the scheme list:
    1. Name - Enter a name for the scheme.
    2. Description - Optional. Enter a description for the scheme.
    3. Enter the working hours for each day of the workload scheme. 
  4. Click Add. The new scheme is added to the list in the Workload view. You can now add or move members to your scheme.

  • Click Set Default to the right of the workload scheme that you want to be the default. New users are automatically added to the default workload scheme when they access Tempo.
  • You can edit the name, description, and working hours of the workload scheme inline.

Tip

The Tempo Default Workload Scheme is created when the Tempo Core system plugin is first installed. This scheme is initially set to contain five 8-hour working days, from Monday to Friday, with the weekend on Saturday and Sunday. If you change this scheme, your changes are not lost whenever you update the Tempo Core system plugin.

Adding Members to Workload Schemes

Adding users to a workload scheme will remove them from any other workload schemes they are included in. You can move users from one workload scheme to another. 

To add a member to a workload scheme:

  1. On the Workload page, click Members to the right of the relevant workload scheme.
  2. To include a user in the workload scheme, search for the user, and then click Add. When a member is added, a Move drop-down button is displayed. You can then quickly move a member to another holiday scheme if necessary.

Note

Tempo Timesheets 10.7.0 and later: You are taken to the Manage Staff page when you click the Members link for a workload scheme. There you can add staff members to the workload scheme, one-by-one or in bulk. For more information about how to add members to workload schemes on the Manage Staff page, see Changing Staff Workload and Holidays.

Moving Members between Workload Schemes

You can move employees from one workload scheme to another if, for example, they move to a different country with different weekend days, or change between part-time and full-time work.

To move a member to another workload scheme:

  1. Click Members to the right of the workload scheme.
  2. Click Move for the employee you want to move, and then select the new workload scheme.

Note

Tempo Timesheets 10.7.0 and later: You move staff members between workload schemes on the Manage Staff page, one-by-one or in bulk. For more information about how to move people between workload schemes on the Manage Staff page, see Changing Staff Workload and Holidays.

Deleting Workload Schemes

You cannot delete workload scheme if there are members assigned to it. You must first move the members to another workload scheme so that it's empty.

To delete a workload scheme:

  • Click Delete to the right of the workload scheme.
