For each area of the restaurant, implement a master schedule, which tells you who you have on staff for each position, what days they can work, what shift(s) they can work on those days and what their preferences are on any given day. It keeps all the special requests straight, keeps seniority in the right order and allows you to map out your most important shifts with your strongest staff members. With master schedule, anyone can write any positions schedules.
