Employee scheduling software FAQs

Employee scheduling software is a software application that helps managers plan and keep on top of staff schedules, shifts and working hours.

With flexible templates, automated scheduling functionality and intuitive editing tools, a good staff scheduling solution makes it easy to set up, update, copy and remove or share schedules and rotas, without having to rely on spreadsheets or other documents.

Some shift management software can also give employees self-service access, track team members' working hours, help manage shift-swaps and export scheduling data and reports.

Cloud-based employee scheduling software can drastically cut down on manual admin work by moving the whole scheduling process online and automating large parts of it.

Using a simple but powerful software tool that your whole team can access and use to communicate in real time will make it much easier to control shift planning and scheduling changes, minimising the risk of conflicts, mistakes and misunderstandings. Ultimately, this could save you a lot hassle and money on staffing hiccups.
