ShiftPlanning is now offering our users the chance to socialize staff scheduling by integrating our employee management software with other applications including the popular social media website, Facebook. ShiftPlanning allows businesses to mingle the processes of scheduling, staff management and time clocking (clocking in and out of shifts) with Facebook. Whether you are uploading employee information, updating your own information or updating your Facebook status, ShiftPlanning makes it easy for you to keep well connected with your employees, customers and social circles.

Adding Employees With Facebook for Fast Staff Scheduling

Click on the ‘Facebook’ icon, enter your Facebook log in information and you will be presented with a list of your Facebook friends on the right. Select the desired individuals and click ‘Save Employees’ to add them to your ShiftPlanning staff list. It is important to note that ShiftPlanning does not have access to their e-mail addresses, so invitations must be sent to the necessary employees or e-mail addresses can be manually added to our employee management software.

Updating Your Facebook Profile Through ShiftPlanning 
With our new release, employees are able to update their personal Facebook status directly from the ShiftPlanning application. By linking Facebook with the ShiftPlanning application, employees can sync relevant information, such as their profile picture, and, furthermore, have the option of signing into ShiftPlanning with either their Facebook or ShiftPlanning log in information.

Once your Facebook account has been linked to your ShiftPlanning employee profile, you can update your Facebook status by simply selecting from several options from the drop down menus shown below:

Happy Scheduling!
