What is the Roster Distance feature

The Roster Distance Feature takes the location of a user, as well as the location of a Site and determines the Distance between the two.

Why is this important

The feature allows you to determine the most suitable employee to work a shift based on their proximity to the site.
The distance calculated is based on their general location, rather than the road (driving) distance

Note: You will need the Maps feature enabled within your account to access the Distance feature. Please contact our support team if you would like to have this enabled.
