Setting up RosterElf

RosterElf can use tracking codes in two ways. You can assign a category by Site or by Position and it will depend on how you have set up your account and what you want to achieve as to the best way to use tracking codes.

Using the example tracking codes in this article (Front Bar, Kitchen, Outdoor Bar), I will give you a couple of scenarios to consider.

Sites: If I've set up my RosterElf account to have a separate rostered Site for each department in my business (i.e. Front Bar, Kitchen, Outdoor Bar), it would make sense to allocate the tracking code on the site.

Positions: If I've set up my RosterElf account to have one Site for rostering that covers the Front Bar, Kitchen and Outdoor Bar in one Roster. I may want to consider having Positions in my account that separate each of the areas within my business. For instance, I could have a Front Bar Manager, Chef, or Outdoor Bar Waitperson and from there, you could allocate the right tracking code to the position.

 

Adding a Tracking Code to a Site

1. In RosterElf, head to the Sites tab, then click on a Site.

2. Select the Xero Tracking Code tab, then select the tracking code you want to use.

3. Click Update to save your changes.
