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.
How does employee sharing work?
Adding a person to more than one schedule is easy. First, go to an employee’s profile and click the “Allow this person to be added to other schedules” checkbox.
Second, go to the schedule you want to add the person to and click the “Add person from another schedule” link on the People tab. A list of available employees will appear. Just click a person’s name to add them to the schedule. Now each schedule will show the shared employee, along with both schedules’ information. You can add people to as many schedules as needed. As always, ScheduleBase will automatically update employees by text and email when schedules are posted and when changes are made to any posted schedule.
