Online Employee Scheduling Software Now Supports Employee Sharing Across Schedules

April 12, 2012 | 2,575 views

Users of ScheduleBase online employee scheduling software can now create schedules for a particular position, department, group, location, etc., and add the SAME person to more than one schedule. This makes it easy for managers to schedule employees who are cross trained or work in multiple departments or locations.

 

How does this help me schedule my people?

If you have employees who routinely work in more than one department or location, this new feature is for you. When enabled, ScheduleBase simply shares an individual’s availability and scheduling information across multiple schedules. This allows managers to quickly see if a person is already scheduled somewhere else as they are building a schedule.

North Shore Grill Uses Restaurant Scheduling Software

Fargo, North Dakota —  Retail flooring leader, Carpet World, was relying on a complicated, and messy, paper-and-pencil scheduling process for 15 store associates and as many as 25 installation sub-contractors. “Things often change in our business,” said Ryan Weber, sales associate, “and we were relying on erasing everything properly and re-writing neatly. It was confusing.”

 

And, there was the challenge of communicating those paper-and-pencil changes among the associates and sub-contractors. Weber added, “Mistakes affect customer service. We really needed a better way for our subs to see what was going on for the day and a good way to communicate changes to their schedule.”
