How do I assign rooms to my Attendants?

The following article explains how to assign rooms to Attendants for cleaning.

Assignment Page

After the team schedule has been set for the day, proceed to the Assignment page to begin assigning rooms to Attendants.  All attendants that were scheduled for the current day should appear in the Attendants list on the left.

NOTE: If you are unsure how to set up the team's daily schedule, please see the article How do I create a Schedule for the day?

Unassigned Rooms

All Unassigned Rooms can be found in the list to the right. From here, you can search for rooms to assign by using the drop-down filters, or find a specific room using the Search by room number or name box.

Out of Order Rooms

Any Out of Order rooms will also be shown in a separate box at the very bottom.

NOTE: The Out of Order rooms here are only a display. A Room's Out of Order status cannot be modified in the Housekeeping module, and must still be scheduled and set in the Maintenance Module of the Desktop client.

Methods of Assigning Rooms

There are several methods that can be used to assign rooms to an Attendant.

  • Method 1 (Assign By Rooms) - Select a block of rooms from the Rooms list, then assign to a designated Attendant
  • Method 2 (Assign By Attendant) - Select an Attendant first, then assign them a block of rooms

We will look at both methods individually.

Method 1 - Assign By Rooms

Using Filters

  • Using the Rooms display on the right, filters can be used to help narrow the search for rooms that need to be assigned
