I was recently asked if it would be possible to convert my annual calendar template into an automated work rotation schedule, for an employee who is working a rota consisting of a number of days on followed by a number of days off. The result was the new template listed below.
This template provides a convenient way to display your work rotation schedule, using the annual calendar template as a basis. Just enter the year and start month, then use the other inputs to define your shift schedule pattern. The workbook contains 3 separate worksheets, each providing a slightly different set of features.
In the first two worksheets (Rotation and Rotation_Advanced), the rota schedule is defined by entering the numbers of days on Shift 1, followed by the number of days on Shift 2, followed by the number of days off. For a simpler "days on/off" pattern, just leave the "Shift 2" field blank.
In the Rotation_String worksheet, you can define a rotation as a repeating string such as "11xxx22xx333xx" which would mean that you work Shift 1 for 2 days, followed by 3 days off, followed by working Shift 2 for 2 days, followed by 2 days off, followed by working Shift 3 for 3 days, followed by 2 days off.
Both the Rotation_Advanced and Rotation_String worksheets use the new built-in function NETWORKDAYS.INTL(), available as of Excel 2010, to let you choose which days make up the "weekend" (Sat/Sun, Mon/Tue, Sunday only, etc.) and to also account for holidays. In these worksheets, the rotation excludes both weekend days and holidays, all of which we call "non-working days." This means that if the rotation calls for you to work 2 days starting on Friday, then you would work Friday and then Monday (skipping the non-working weekend days).
This version of the rotation schedule allows you to show the rotation for multiple employees. You define the rotation pattern for each employee, all starting from a specific date. The template shows the total number assigned to each shift for each day.
Shifts that involve working X days followed by Y days off are easy to handle with this rota template. Just leave the "Shift 2" field blank. Or, if using the String method, you can define a 4/2 pattern as "1111xx".
Some rotation schedules use a pattern that repeats every fortnight (2 weeks), and may be referred to as 2/3/2. I created the Rotation_Advanced worksheet specifically for cases like this, where the repeating pattern is "11xxx11xx111xx" with "x" meaning OFF and the "1" meaning ON.
It is pretty common for an employee to be assigned a shift for an extended amount of time (months?) because of how hard it can be on the body and general life planning to change from a day to a night shift on a regular basis. Though the rotation schedule template is set up to show an entire year, you could use it to just show a few months at a time (by hiding or deleting the unneeded rows).

A staff rota is a document that lists the days and hours when staff members are required to work. This document ensures all shifts are covered and the correct number of staff members are present during each shift. You can also use it to assign specific tasks or duties to individual staff members.
While staff rota is critical to every business with employees, creating it from the ground up isn't always easy. But a template can simplify the scheduling process and free up more time to focus on core business activities.
A staff rota is simply a work schedule or roster. It commonly includes shift information such as the location, start date, scheduled hours, tasks, and roles. An effective staff rota ensures work rotation occurs smoothly and employees are well-informed of their shift responsibilities.
That said, a staff rota template is a fill-in-the-blanks file. It provides the basic structure of employee schedules, so you don't have to create staff rotas from scratch. This also allows you to spend less time on rota planning and more on building your business.
As computer technology advanced in the 1980s, word processors like Word replaced the old-fashioned pen and paper in scheduling work. Businesses with few employees still use word processors to make simple rotas.
This is a stand-alone software solution created specifically for scheduling work. Of all the methods on this list, these software solutions are the most powerful and convenient when creating a staff rota. Why? They are designed purposely for rota creation.
Online employee scheduling software like Shiftbase offers powerful features that simplify, fasten, and makes it convenient to create work schedules. Depending on the software providers, employee scheduling software also comes with these robust, rota-building features:
Employees can indicate whether they are available for work through a mobile app or PC. Sometimes, unexpected leaves, emergencies, as well as changes in a client's deadline can happen. This feature ensures you your rota planning considers staff availability.
Effective rota planning is integral to running a business. But creating staff rotas doesn't have to be challenging. These best practices can simplify the scheduling process and help you create a rota that meets the needs of both the business and employees.
Effective rota planning should factor in holidays and sick days. This will ensure that everyone is taking enough time off and the rota is balanced. A balanced rota also minimises lost productivity by compensating for the time lost in holidays and sick leave without burning out employees.
Depending on the employment agreement, your employees may have freedom over when they work through the ability to swap shifts with a preferred colleague. However, ensure you have the final say before the exchange or any other modification becomes official.

You're free to enter any amount of time you like too, as long as you end the entry with the word "break".
