What is a Rolling Schedule?


Rolling Schedule is a timetable that shows a list of planned working hours, events and activities for a certain period of time. It explains what amount of time is available for assigned individuals to perform planned work items. Rolling schedules are usually used in planning and monitoring employee time and tasks. 

Rolling schedule differs from other types of working schedules by their ability to present time as a continuum so every piece of work (regardless of its duration and complexity) can be placed on such a schedule. A typical rolling schedule often embraces all 7 weekdays including holidays and day-offs. A person allocated to such a schedule is allowed to perform assigned jobs consecutively day after day.

 Rolling schedules count the total effort and time employees have consumed to produce some desired result. The following types of events are included in a typical rolling schedule:

  • Individual one-off (single) events
  • Periodic (recurring) events
  • Multi-date events (a combination of both) 

The greatest advantages of using rolling schedules is that for managers it becomes easier to calculate working hours spent and activities done because rolling schedules are not supposed to have breaks when employees stop doing their job. Rolling schedules regard the working process as continuous and uninterruptable, so managers are enabled to track employee tasks and time throughout the entire process, without the need to focus on idle time and breaks.
