Roster Maker - $10.00
Low cost, easy to
learn program to generate duty rosters according to AR 220-45.
Setup any qualifications you need to distinguish duties and personnel.
Input the names of duties and organizations in the duty form, and then
add personnel in the roster form. For each duty and Soldier click
the qualifications describing the requirements. Next select each
duty in the grid at the top of the duty form and click the
calendar for the each date it occurs. Only select the days
you want on the next roster. Choose File|Setup and the
Holiday tab to input any holiday dates, these are counted differently
along with weekends and show up highlighted with red lines on the roster
when choosing the consolidated roster option. On the roster form
indicate excused absence dates for personnel. Version 220.127.116.11 adds the
option to choose whether to add points for excused Soldiers if they
would have been assigned duty during the excused absence period. After
completing these tasks select "File|Make New Data File" and all of the
rosters are created for the dates you indicated the duty occurs on.
To view and print the data file select
"Open/Print Rosters" and select the data file name you created.
All data before today is deleted when the program starts.
Past holidays, duties, and absences are automatically removed.
Manipulate the counters by choosing the Count menu item. It is
possible to take a point away from a Soldier who does not show up, easily view
who should have the duty next, and add points later should you continue the
roster manually. If you need the next Soldier for the duty, you can give
them the extra point to give credit for the duty performance. When
the data is sorted, the order becomes obvious. Everytime a duty is
assigned it is added to the Assignment List with beginning and ending dates and
Soldier is given a "D" instead of any other duty.
