ShiftPlanning’s new mobile application incorporates the key employee scheduling and time clock functionality found in the web-based application allowing managers to take care of workforce management needs right from a smartphone. The improved application has an easy-to-use interface that maintains a lightweight feel despite being feature heavy. From the new application, managers can add and assign staff, update the employee schedule, manage timesheets and more. Employees are able to view schedules, use communication lines (Message Wall and Inbox), clock in and out of shifts, see the employee database, and edit profile settings. The app is available to all managers and staff alike at no extra charge to a regular ShiftPlanning subscription and can be accessed by visiting https://www.shiftplanning.com/app from your smartphone, where you will be prompted to login:
Once you login, you will be brought to the Dashboard, shown below. Here, you have access to all your upcoming shifts, message inbox, employee details (including skills and positions) and can log out of the application by clicking on the icons aligned at the top of your screen.
When you click the ‘menu’ link on the upper left corner, a list of tabs will appear on left. Here, you can access the ‘Time Clock’, ‘Schedule’, ‘Requests’, ‘Staff’ and ‘Reports’ tabs.
In the ‘Time Clock’ tab, shown below, you can clock in/out of shifts, see your timesheet and manually add clock times. The clock in and clock out process is the same as on any other electronic device – you can clock in and out of shifts, add notes and select a schedule. As a manager, you can also manage timesheets. By clicking on a shift, you can approve, edit or delete shifts. You, and your employees, can also manually add clock times, just like when you access the ShiftPlanning application from your computer.
In the ‘Schedule’ tab of our mobile application, you can view the schedule by day or month, but will be automatically brought to the present day’s schedule. You can easily scroll left and right to access past and future dates.
You can also see all your employees’ profiles in the ‘Staff’ tab, in two view options: gallery or list. When you click on any of the employees, you will be presented with an overview of their profile, the ability to edit their details and change their password. From our mobile application, you have the ability to add employees and use our ‘Fast Assignment’ feature.
Our ‘Reports Tab’ allows you to review timesheets and all payroll processing.
We hope the new mobile application benefits both employees and management staff by making it even easier to keep up with business needs from anywhere, at anytime! Please feel free to let us know of any feedback, questions or concerns in the comments below or by emailing email@example.com.
