Duty roster

Another term for duty or staff rota, a duty roster sets out which employees work, the roles they fill, and the times and dates they’ll work at a business or organisation.

In the past, duty rosters were basic, hand-drawn tables or spreadsheet documents with days written across the top and staff’s names down the side. Today, online staff scheduling software lets managers build and share duty rosters in a matter of minutes, organising their team by role, location, and more.
