Welcome Table (Hospitality) Preferences

This table is designed to capture your (and others') roster allocation preferences. There are three things you may wish to change:

  1. The column labelled Fixed Term indicates how many weeks notice you want for your roster allocations. Possible values are 4 through to 26 weeks inclusive. (Used only for rolling allocation.)

  2. The column labelled Exclusion Period indicates how many weeks must pass before you are willing to be rostered again. Possible values are from 1 to 13 inclusive. (Used only for rolling allocation.)

  3. The remaining columns indicate the times or duties you are willing to be rostered. Possible values are Yes and No. (Used for both rolling and Coordinator allocation.)

The "Fixed Term" is the number of weeks into the future when you will be rostered. Setting this to a small value, say 4, means that you can make your self "Unavailable" and so avoid allocation, for any date more than 4 weeks away. The tradeoff is that you only get 4 weeks notice of a duty. This suits people who have relatively unpredictable schedules. Setting "Fixed Term" to a large value, say 13, means that you get 13 weeks notice of a duty, but you can only make yourself "Unavailable" with 13 weeks notice, increasing the probability of needing to arrange a swap. This suits people who like to plan well ahead.

The Exclusion Period defines how frequently you willing to be rostered. If you don't wish to be rostered more than twice a year, put 26 (weeks) as your exclusion period. If you are happy to be rostered once a month, put 4 (weeks). Note that you can go as low as 1 week, although it is unlikely that the program will ever roster you for successive weeks.

The purpose of the remaining columns should be clear. Simply enter a Yes or No in each column, according to whether you are willing to take duties in this time slot.

NOTE: Any changes you make to your preferences will not change allocations already made. If you change preferences to remove a time for which you are allocated, it remains your responsibility to arrange a swap.

You are welcome to edit this page yourself, or send your preferences to DavidMorgan or the ChurchOffice.

Note that while the time for the welcome table is given as 9.15am, it is understood that the welcome table indeed operates both before and after the 9.15am service, so that the 11.00am service is also catered for. A 10.00am preference is also included, for those Sundays when a combined service is held

NOTE: This preference list is under construction, and may not be complete.
