Why change our roster view?

The decision to update our roster view was driven by our customers.

Over time Tanda has become more powerful in helping our customers achieve their business goals, and this has led to our customers asking for even more out of Tanda rosters.

At the same time industry compliance requirements have tightened and our customers requirements have become more complex.

In developing our new roster view we called out for feedback. Customers were excited by the new features, but also wanted to be sure they had access to the same tools they have now. We’ve put a great deal of effort into ensuring the new roster view has the functionality of the previous view.

While the new roster view has all of the old functionality, we’ve also added more powerful features, like:

  • More alerts to make compliance easier

  • Additional reports and stats to help drive efficient rosters

  • New tools to build rosters faster

Since we released this view in 2019 over half our clients have already chosen to use the new roster view.

The success and the quality of our product is the result of our continuous pursuit to produce superior software. To continue this pursuit, we have to commit to one roster view and make it the best.

We’ve made this guide to help you get to know the new roster view, and we’ve also made this video. We encourage you to share these resources with your team.

In our new rosters, it is possible to see multiple weeks at a time so we don't have a "week" view. Instead, we have "stacked view", which you can use like so.

How do I see a specific day on my roster?

In legacy rosters, we have "day" view, which looks like this.

In our new rosters, because we can view a day, a week, or multiple weeks this is done a little bit differently. You can either click on a day like the below example.

Or, you can switch the roster into day view like this.
