Table of Contents

On Sunday night, we released the latest version of TimeForge, the groundbreaking, simple and easy to use employee scheduling software. This new version continues to improve the TimeForge software, adding many new features so you can go home sooner!

What’s New?

Supervisor role

Do you have multiple managers at your location who create employee schedules? Do all of your managers need access to, but they should not be able to see each other’s wages? Then they are TimeForge supervisors! Within TimeForge, turning an employee into a supervisor (or manager) is simple! Edit the employee and change their “Employee Type” to be “A Supervisor”.

Hint: You can control what permissions supervisors have by changing your Location Settings. Login to, and click on the “Settings” tab. Then, click on the “Settings for this Location”, and find the “TimeForge configuration” section. At your discretion, supervisors can change employees, requests, and shift swaps.

New Pricing Model

Due to overwhelming demand, the TimeForge pricing model for our simple scheduling software has become even simpler. TimeForge now comes in two flavors: a basic version (at $1.50 per employee per month) and an enhanced version (at $2.00 per employee per month). Existing customers can continue with their current price, or upgrade to the new model at their discretion.


Most of received significant speed improvements, including the AutoScheduler and the requests / availability areas. A faster TimeForge means that you get done scheduling faster , and go home sooner!

Schedule without Wages

Just want a simple scheduling tool? TimeForge can now schedule employees without having any wage information entered into the software. All that is required are the names of your employees and the positions that they can work. That’s it! Of course, TimeForge can do much more.

Turn off the AutoScheduler

For many businesses, the AutoScheduler saves hours of management time by correctly placing the right employee into the right shift on the schedule. However a few of our users would like to do this process themselves, and want to turn the AutoScheduler off. To do so, login to TimeForge, and click on the “Settings” tab. Then, click on the “Settings for this Location“, and locate the “TimeForge configuration” section. One of the options is to enable or disable the AutoScheduler. Setting this option to “No” will disable the AutoScheduler.

Double Alerts

If an employee shift swap will result in a double shift (where an employee will work more than one shift that day) you’ll be notified when you approve or deny the shift!

Graphic Improvements

Many of the charts in received an upgrade over the weekend. They look better, display faster, and can now be printed! To print a chart, right click on the chart, and click “Print“.


You can now change the colors of the graphs inside of TimeForge to meet your needs, based on the position being scheduled. To do so, click on “Employees” and then click on “Positions”. Click “Edit” on the position you want to change, and then click on the color box to pick a color for the position.

Reliable Text Messaging Alerts

We guarantee that our text messages will be delivered to you and your staff. We provide a high quality text messaging solution for our clients, and have partnered with ClickATell, a text-messaging pioneer, to ensure that your messages are always delivered to your staff.

Setup Wizard and User Wizard Improvements

These two tools enable you, and your management team, to quickly add employees and positions to TimeForge. They have been streamlined to include only the crucial information needed to build a schedule.
