Adding employees to ShiftPlanning is an essential part of getting started with the employee scheduling software. You will be able to add employees to the online scheduler by accessing the ‘staff’ tab while logged into the system. Our online scheduling software allows you to add employees the following 5 different ways:

1. Add Employees Manually: 
Under the ‘Staff’ tab, click on Add Employee(s) on the left hand side of the screen. Fill in the details of the Employee e.g. Name, E-mail, Contact details etc., and activate the employees account by leaving the Send Activation checkbox checked.

2. Add Employees by .CSV: 
You can use a .csv file to add employees to the scheduler in bulk. In the left menu of the ‘staff tab’ select ‘Add Employee(s)’. After that, you will see the normal employee addition screen, with an added link on the left to “Import Employees From:” .csv. With .csv, once you have uploaded your file we try to match your field names against our support field types e.g. email, wage, name, first name, last name, nick name, cell phone, address etc. When you’re done for all your fields click ‘Add Employees’, and we will collect the right data based on the field matches.
