The ShiftPlanning team is proud to be a TopTenReviews GOLD Award winner for 2012. We’re most thankful of our users. You have helped us to shape the product and make it as functional and easy-to-use as it is today. Last night, we had the chance to release a few more user requested features:

Drag & Drop Shifts Across Employees

We have an exciting update. We’ve been making the scheduler’s drag/drop capabilities more robust over the past few releases, and one of the more requested Drag/Drop features was the ability to move shifts between employees. This helps users save time in navigating the employee scheduler and switching the shifts from one employee to another without having to spend time accessing the ‘shift edit’ window and changing checkboxes.

Publish Button Now Hides If Draft/Publish Mode is OFF

The ‘Publish’ button gives managers control over when the schedule is available for viewing to their staff. However, some users prefer that their schedule always be live. Now if in admin settings the option “Use the Draft/Publish schedule method” is unchecked, the ‘Publish’ Button will disappear from the scheduler.

  • With Publish Option:

  • Without Publish Option:

Recurring Shifts Extended

Previously, shifts could be set to repeat for up to a year. That limit has been increased to three years. Additionally, the date selection can now be made by year for quicker navigation.

Saved Shift Length in Visual View

Now, the default shift length in visual view is 8hrs. However if you create a shift of a certain length, the scheduler will hold state for subsequent shifts.
