Training to use Visual Rota

The best way to train a person to use Visual Rota is to reproduce your current staffing roster using the program. The first time you enter one of your shifts, the Shifts Wizard starts up and asks you some very simple questions. As you continue to type in more shifts, you will see that the computer is continually recalculating the shift data and updating your staffing parameters, ie staff on duty, how many hours are worked, etc. This training period takes about 10-30 minutes depending on the complexity of the shifts you are entering. This method of training is highly effective and gets you up to speed quickly and effortlessly.
