We just released two convenient new ways to import staff into the ShiftPlanning online employee scheduler:
Simply sign-in with Facebook either from the initial login screen or at the new import import screen under ‘Staff’->’Add Employee(s)’. Once you are signed in you will see a list of all your staff with the ability to import the ones you want. Imported employees from Facebook will already be setup with Facebook Sign-On, as well as their avatar image.Click here for full details.
E-mail Address Book
Simply login to your e-mail address book, and we’ll show you a list of your contacts for you to choose which contacts (employees) you want to import. Currently we accept address books from the following online e-mail providers:
Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, ICQ Mail, Lycos, Indiatimes, firstname.lastname@example.org, email.it, FastMail and Reddiffmail
Don’t worry; We will never:
– Store your e-mail address/password
– Contact your contacts without your permission.
These two new options work alongside the existing .csv import tool.
We’re working hard right now to finish the Google Apps integration which includes Single Sign-On as well as User provisioning (auto-importing Google Apps users to ShiftPlanning) and Google Docs sharing. We’ll update you as soon as this is ready!
