Managers value the ability to have custom employee schedule reports to better understand and evaluate their business’s current workforce management. With ShiftPlanning, there are standard report options that provide a clear and concise table for various aspects under schedules, timesheets, employees, and payroll. There is also an option for custom employee schedule reports, where the manager can select or create multiple other variables to review.

At default, reports created through ShiftPlanning includes all shifts, even the shifts that were not assigned or filled by an employee. To exclude these empty shifts, just click on the ‘Options’ drop-down menu, select ‘Exclude Empty Shifts’ and all empty and open shifts will be removed from the report.
