Introducing Fly Notes - A New School Notebook for Restaurant Managers

Apr 9, 2009 | Schedulefly Crew
We've just launched a simple, yet powerful, new feature to Schedulefly - called Fly Notes. Restaurant managers are using this new tool to post and share notes, events, action items etc. with their management team. The Fly Notes page also displays the day's weather forecast, the daily sales forecast and the scheduled labor cost as a percentage of that sales forecast. As with all new features we launch - this is included and available to every one of our trial and paying customers.

Managers can post one-time, daily, weekly or monthly reoccurring notes - and attach documents and photos as needed. Fly Notes can be assigned to individual managers or the entire team.

Email alerts can be sent when notes are added - and an email alert reminder system for reoccurring notes is underway. Each Fly Note can be added to a custom category and also commented on - fostering a web 2.0 style dialog on items and events related to the restaurant.

Here are few examples of Fly Notes categories being created so far:

-Daily To Do List
-Service Issues
-Customer Feedback
-Upcoming Events
-Shift Notes
-Food Cost
-Employee Issues

After some great initial feedback - we are already working on a few cool enhancements including the the ability to send emails to your Fly Notes page. Snap a quick photo of that dirty walk-in freezer from last night and forward it over to your Fly Notes for your management team to see in the morning!
