You spoken and we’ve heard! We have three new releases to announce that have each come from your feedback. The ShiftPlanning development team prides its self on being customer driven, so if you have any comments or concerns, please let us know. Also, feel free to check out our product roadmap at anytime. You can find out more about the new features below:
ShiftPlanning offers administrators and staff members a number of setting to allow for a flexible system. In the staff profile under notifications, users are able to specify how often they would like to receive ShiftPlanning-related updates. We now offer great control by allowing employees to select not only how often they receive certain notifications but also to select the preferred medium (E-mail or SMS) and set independent frequencies for each medium.
Over the past months, we’ve added quite a bit of functionality to the “add filters” section of the scheduler which you can learn more about here and here. Among the requested filters was the option to segment employees by skill. This works for example if you want to just look at the schedules of all spanish speaking staff members. Filter by staff is an even more powerful feature when combined with other filters like “open trade requests.”
Along with schedule related features, the team has also worked on areas relevant to payroll. One of the most asked for payroll/paycard elements was that of daily overtime. States like California have employment rules that regulate how overtime is handled on a day to day basis (for example, hrs worked after 8hr in a day are overtime etc). ShiftPlanning’s daily overtime feature. We allow the flexibility to create as many of these overtime rules as suits client needs. These rules are reflected in payroll-specific reporting. Daily overtime can be set from the admin tab under ‘rate cards’.
What features are you most looking forward to? Are there payroll-related rules that your organization requires?
