Jobs in Focus are a powerful tool that allow you to manage what employees can see and do when interacting with the system. This tutorial will demonstrate how to add a new job to store(s) using Focus Office.
An employee in Focus must have at least 1 job and can be assigned up to 6. When an employee clocks in, they choose the job they will be performing for that shift. The job an employee selects will determine what permissions they have (job rights) and what they see when logging into Focus local (location & commands). Different rates of hourly pay can be assigned to different jobs. For example, if you have an employee who acts as a manager, server, and bartender, you would want each of those jobs to be assigned to that employee in employee setup. If you want that manager to still have their managerial rights when clocked in as a server, see Focus Local: Extend Job Rights to learn how. Team members wishing to add new jobs to the system must have the following job rights:
It is highly recommended that you reference an existing job similar to the one that you are creating and emulate the settings. Jobs are highly customizable, and you want to make sure you have the correct combination of settings to achieve your end goal.
