    Overtime Rotating Seniority list.

    Hi Everyone, Im new here and could greatly use your help.

    I am trying to create an overtime staff listing based upon the seniority of those staff.

    I already have the list sorted from A1:A50 with the names of staff based on seniority date.

    My goal for this list is to have it rotate based upon seniority date, i.e. If Staff in A1(highest seniority) picks up a shift, the next day their name would be located in A50.

    I am thinking it is best to do this on a weekly basis so Im assuming I will need a column of names for day 1, and then a numeric value to signify they picked up a shift say in column B. Therefore im assuming I would need a total of 14 columns to accomplish what I am looking for.

    The main thing I am struggling with, and I dont know if this is even possible, is to have excel automatically sort the next days list of names in Column C, E, G, etc for the next days based upon whether or not they had picked up shifts on the previous days.

    Please let me know if you need any additional clarification or information on what kind of a list Im trying to create.

    If you have any alternative ways in which i can accomplish this rotating list please let me know.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello shg,

    Is this what you were looking for. If so, ignore the subs part at the bottom of the list. Please let me know if it is not. Thank you !

    Why not just sort the list by seniority and put assignment dates in the adjacent column?

    Re: Overtime Rotating Seniority list.

    this may sound confusing but might bring to light why i want it to be a rotating list.

    This list is for overtime hours and available shifts/overtime hours fluctuate daily. Some days we may need 5 people, some days we may not need anyone. So i need a running/rotating list that changes daily so that every staff is given overtime equally. Secondly, the staff have the option to sign up for the shifts they want to pick up, so there are never any set times, and its up to us to assign them first based on seniority. After they have picked up one shift, they are not at the bottom of the seniority list.

    I forgot to mention this before but I want to use this as a tracking tool rather than something that the actual staff would look at for their assignment.

    I hope that helps describing more of what I am looking to do.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Overtime Rotating Seniority list.

    I get the idea, but I don't know what you want the result to look like.

    You have a list of people and their seniority; then someplace else you have a list of dates, and the people that worked OT on those dates? And below that, you want everyone's name to appear in rotation, with the least (or most) senior person on deck for the next OT shift?

    I'm making this up as I go along, but you're the person that needs to figure out what they want.
