If your labor pool is growing and you’re having trouble keeping everything in order, there are a few tools Veryable provides to help guide you through this. In your business portal, you can use tags to organize the list of Operators in your labor pool, create Op templates, use autofill, conduct bulk adjustments, and create work areas delegated to each site you manage to run your labor pool smoothly and efficiently.
Use tags to organize the list of Operators in your labor pool
In your business portal, you can apply tags to each Operator in your labor pool to keep everything organized. This function can be found in the Ops tab, on a button labeled “YLP tags.” This brings up a menu with color-coded tags that can be applied to anyone you’ve added to your labor pool.
For example, if you need to keep track of who has been trained on a specific machine, you could create a tag to denote that an Operator is proficient with that machine and then apply that tag to Operators in your labor pool as you train them. This would allow you to see quickly how many Operators you have with skills on that particular machine in your facility. Then when you invited Operators from your labor pool next, it would be easier to find exactly who you were looking for because of the tags.
Create Op templates
When you find yourself posting an Op with the same details over and over, you know it’s time to create an Op template. That way, you can start each Op posting for that particular task with a base that’s already mostly completed. Then you can just customize it quickly before posting. This will save you time when you’re posting for a large number of Ops.
If you do not want to manually select Operators for each Op, you can save time by using autofill. This feature automatically selects Operators based on an advanced algorithm designed to help you fill Ops effectively.
Autofill can instantly select and confirm Operators who meet your criteria, which we’ve found to boost attendance rates because it removes the delay between an Operator’s bid and their acceptance for the Op.
You can also set parameters on autofill to find the perfect balance between manual and automated selection. For example, if you know you do not want anyone with a rating below three stars for an Op, you can set autofill to only select Operators with a three-star rating or higher.
If you don’t want to instantly approve people based on autofill, you can let autofill rank the bids from Operators who meet your criteria so that you have a shortlist to select from.
Conduct bulk adjustments
If you need to make adjustments to many Ops at once after the Op day has passed, you can upload a spreadsheet file to make bulk adjustments. This can save you time when you need to make many changes at once.
Create work areas for organizing the labor pool inside your building
You can create work areas inside the Veryable business portal to represent areas of the building you want to put Operators in. This will make it easier to stay organized while finding workers for specific tasks and see where you could add more support at a glance.
