Force Hire List(s)

The Scheduling system offers a great way for you to maintain 'force' or 'mandate' lists.

This is excellent for Organizations who need a way to keep a detailed record and management of their lists, particularly Fire / EMS and Law Enforcement agencies. The article below will describe how to enable, setup and manage these lists.

Getting started:

To enable the Force Hire module, you must first enable it in the system settings. Navigate to the admin System Settings area > CallBack > Force Hire, and then select Enable Force Hire List module.

Finally, click the green Save Options button.

Step 1

Once enabled; navigate to the main menu and click CallBack's > Callback Rankings  > view/edit Custom Force Hire Lists

Note: Only users who have the permission 'Edit CallBack Rankings' will be able to perform this task

Step 2

Click the blue 'Get Started' button; or the 'Add new Force Hire list...' button in the upper right corner:

Step 3

First, name your new Force hire list. Then, you can tell the system how to order the employees in the Force Hire list by selecting either manual, by last force hire date or by callback ranking. Lastly, choose which employees you want to include in your Force Hire list. The scheduling system uses an advanced input detection feature that allows you to search keywords. You can add individual employees, entire groups, entire lists, and more. In this example, we will add everyone who is a part of the 'Officer' CallBack list, as well as one user, 'Tyrel Wardle':

Click the green Add new list button to save

You'll see that we now have one Force Hire list created:

Step 4

To edit the ordering;  click on the Force Hire list. For a manual list, simply drag and drop names around; or set the ordering manual.

If you want to manually add or remove users click Edit list. 

If you used 'Last Date Forced', you can set the order by simply clicking on the employee's name and 'force employee' into the order you need. You can also 'add date', which will move the list accordingly.
