BluePrint: Roster Tool for Volunteer Management
The Roster Tool is a tool to assign volunteers to shifts (time slots) of scheduled work in a project.
- This project aims to create a roster tool primarily aimed at the CERT service. This can be used when there is a need of volunteers / people to be rostered. They can be rostered for an event, project, scenario, or an organisation. The tool is visually a table with each cell defined by a job role and a corresponding timeframe.
- The list of the volunteers / people / employees will be pulled up from the database and then populated next to the roster tool for the admin to select and generate a roster.
- Refer the user guidelines on http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/UserGuidelinesRostering
- A visual tool to generate a roster.
- An administrative profile to create and manage roster
- Compatibility to request change of roster allotment.

- Each CERT team will have an admin who will have access to admin interface. The admin interface will have the following features:
- Roster ability to assign volunteer work on time place grid.

- Assign "Essential" status to important cells which would be given priority for job allocation using auto complete
