Why Schedule Employees? What are the benefits?

Scheduling employees has been around long before any software was invented. The first digital scheduling I can recall was spreadsheets where you would build your schedule in a spreadsheet. I am sure before spreadsheets people scheduled with paper and pen.

Today scheduling with a digital solution the employee roster means so much more.

The old way was to schedule on paper, pick up the phone, call and confirm the person is ok for the shift, takes notes on your paper. The modern way is to build your schedule and then push one message with all people scheduled notified automatically at the same time with the ability to turn on a feature asking the person to accept or decline the schedule.

The old way was to have a list of names you could call for on-call scheduling when you needed people at the last minute. I have done this one before in a previous life where at 10 pm at night I needed to find 5 people and would start calling people until I got the 5 people i needed, sometimes I was still calling at 11:00 pm at night starting to wake people up who had already gone to sleep. The Modern way is to push one button notifying any person who is skilled to complete the work and the first 5 people to accept the offer get the shift, everything sorted in minutes without one phone call.

How do you schedule? the old way or the Modern way?

Mutliple location time keeping or scheduling just took a 180 degree turn to easier than ever before

Over the past decade as cloud software has continued to rise we are still doing many things manually or slower than we would like as software continues to catch up with customer needs.

Multiple location tracking employee time and/or scheduling JUST GOT EASIER

There are no longer any excuses for not going digital, recent changes now allow the faster scheduling. Until now we had to create a location for every job site, while it all worked it was certainly a little time consuming especially if you had dozens or hundreds of job sites.

Now within one location, we can build multiple job sites (locations with a physical address. This also allows all the geo-location triggers to work as they have previously worked against every address of every location.

How you manage unavailability today could be a mixture of text messages, Facebook posts, spreadsheets, notes on your PC and even writing on your hand.

Adding your work schedule to your google calendar – Google helped to solve this issue

Customer……

I work a rotating shift schedule which is standard every month. Basically I want a shortcut (likely by using a weekly/daily repeat function) to set up the hours for the year without having to go in and individually add each day. For example, the shift is set up as follows:

Beginning 24 January – Monday – Sunday from 6am-2pm
Beginning 3 Feb – Thursday-Wednesday from 10pm-6am
Beginning 14 Feb – Mon-Thurs from 2-10pm

Of course, you scatter some random days off because the hours end up being more than you actually need, but in general, I would like to repeat those all on the same days. I attempted to use the weekly repeat, but it does it from the end of the shift, not the beginning, so when you schedule out 4 weeks from a night shift it messes up the days.

Google answer…..

HEY DUDE, I JUST DID MINE AND THIS POST BY KiethR2010 BELOW HELPED ME IT… WAS EASY.

ALL YOU BASICALLY DO IS REPEAT THROUGH DAILY AND CHOSE THE SET DAYS. MY SCHEDULE IS WORKS 2 DAY SHIFTS 2 NIGHTS AND OFF 4 SO I ENTERED THE FIRST DAY IN MY CALENDAR THEN REPEATED IT EVERY 8 DAYS. IT WORKS LIKE MAGIC LOL
