Founded in 1935 our business has been in recovery organization and in voluntary service.
We have 10 officers and volunteers. I approached Ryan at ShiftPlanning to allow our organization to utilize ShiftPlanning because we have a very fluid volunteer schedule where 10 people need to be at 270 events throughout the year, planned in advance but yet needed the ability to arrange exchange of schedule commitments (substitutes) as needed. We have not set up a schedule in ShiftPlanning yet because by the time we got approved two years ago the schedule was already built and current volunteers were slow to buy in on the concept. Now we are trying again.
Rotating staff Schedules
Service Industry Scheduler
Non-Profit & Volunteer Scheduling
Our previous employee scheduling system and method has been manual. One person (me) projected a year calendar in advance and input recurring events into a regular outlook calendar, duplicated those dates in excel and went through several iterations finding out who was not available when, resetting the schedule and fixing errors until we had a final product in excel, printed out overall schedule and each persons personal schedule via excel.
I would recommend to others. Just the contact so far with Ryan the allowing us as non-profit to utilize the product is amazing, not to mention researching the tools and sample program appears great.
