ShiftPlanning now features the ability to integrate web applications with your workforce management software’s ‘Dashboard’ page, providing easy and effortless navigation to other applications that your business utilizes. These ‘Apps’ are linking to other online applications and websites, creating a shortcut right on the ‘Dashboard’ page.
To integrate web applications to your workforce management software, simply click on ‘Add Application’ under ‘Apps’ and it will bring you to an ‘Add App’ window. Type the application name in the ‘App Name’ field (i.e. Facebook) and provide the main access URL for the online application/website in the ‘App URL’ field (i.e. http://facebook.com), then hit the ‘Save App’ button.
After linking an application to ShiftPlanning, there are two options as to how the newly-linked application will appear: (1) within the ShiftPlanning window or (2) in a new window. To select the viewing settings for each linked application, click on the application name or URL to choose ‘Show Inline’ (opens within ShiftPlanning) or ‘Open in New Window’. To remove an application, click on the ‘X’ to the right of the given ‘App’.
Once you have saved a linked application, refresh the page and it will show under ‘Apps’.
The ‘Apps’ feature is currently in beta and we welcome any feedback, questions or concerns you may have. Within the ‘Apps’ area, there is a ‘share feedback’ link that will allow comments to be addressed in the ‘Apps’ forum.
We hope you enjoy this new feature to integrate web applications and that it makes it easier and more efficient for your scheduling needs! As always, please feel free to provide us with any feedback by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @ShiftPlanning.
