At a wild guess, an IPad or  other device that enables you to set up a schedule,.

They should maybe start using something like this for keeping track of holidays people are getting and extra hours people are working. In our place management don't pay you for holidays. Then you have holidays left from previous year. Flexis aren't told about overtime yet they are questioned why they weren't in...

"Whole store scheduler". All schedules / OT managed through tablets. Requires lot of prep work including staff training, OT and registers always 4 weeks in advance, availability forms for all staff and more. Everyone to be silver trained / validated on their own dept AND any other dept where they wish to work OT. Dept OT requests (in hours not ££) are reviewed each week at a resource meeting (4wks ahead) and then allowed OT is booked onto the tablet by name. There will be a tablet by clocking machine for individuals to book their own OT. Ultimately it will link to online hol booking, payroll etc. Sick calls require duty manager to update the schedule via a tablet.
Several stores already trialling this.

Some people just want to watch the world burn.

The store where I work is one of the trial stores for ideal schedule and it is a really bad idea, as with most of tesco's new ideas, it doesnt work in the real world, no better than the heat map nonsense, in fact its worse, some departments have so much overtime that they cant fill it all because there isnt enough staff to do so, while other departments are so short staffed that its scary and yet arent being allocated any overtime, to the point where managers are having to fill in for their staff, checkout calls (which were already ridiculously high) have gone through the roof.
  Also means that managers are in even more meetings than they already were and team 5's last much longer also.
  And all just in time for the christmas chaos, as usual  ;D
