One of ShiftPlanning’s biggest advantages over offline employee scheduling software is ShiftPlanning’s ability to keep everyone in the loop when schedules are published & re-published (as well as to send out automatic reminders 60mins & 24hrs prior to work times).
Our notifications go out via e-mail and sms and abide by notification settings both setup by the business as well as by the individual employee.
We’ve just released 2 features which will help to streamline your communication as well as make it much easier to keep staff in the loop during your employee scheduling process.
Starting this morning we now include your business logo on all notifications that go out vs. the previous ShiftPlanning logo. This will help improve communication to your staff, and help them to immediately recognize why they’re receiving these notifications. If you haven’t uploaded a corporate logo you can easily add one from ‘Admin’ -> ‘Business Details’.
Available Shifts Included in Published Schedules
Up until now notifications only went out to staff that were actually scheduled, and there was no convenient way for ‘publishing’ open shifts. Alongside scheduled shifts we now also take a look at which shifts in the timeline have open slots and send out a convenient reminder to your staff (that are available to work at those times) to let them know their are shifts that they can request to pick-up.
Open shifts have been an incredibly popular component of our employee scheduling software, and we are excited for the improved communication that this added functionality will provide.
Here is a preview of both of these new features in action:
