We are a volunteer organization by and for students since 1998 at Gjøvik University College, in Norway. We arrange game nights every Wednesday, disco/club every Thursday and pub quiz every Friday. Occasionally we make concerts, Stand-up, karaoke and other fun stuff for the students here. Since we are fully run by students you can imagine the chaos it is communicating and keeping everyone informed. Also people quit and join all over the place, ShiftPlanning has really made managing it all a lot easier!
We started with at least 20 volunteers and now we have 105 volunteer students with rapid changes in both employees and management.
Studentenes Hus (Huset) is run by 9 managers, 6 managing staff as well. Before the work scheduler ShiftPlanning the managers (and staff) were separated, nobody knew anything about each other. Now everyone can see who the others are, what they do and who they are going to work with in the evening.

Before this work scheduler we used e-mails and printed paper schedules, that were very difficult to keep updated, when staff exchanged shifts. Nobody knew who was supposed to work or not. Total chaos in short.
The work scheduler has completely changed how the managers work and how we share information with all our staff. It is also very helpful for keeping information for later. Like I said about the history that is a mystery. Now we can go back a full year (and hopefully even longer later) and see. How many worked on that special event for instance. It is indeed very helpful. It is beyond words.
I would definitely recommend ShiftPlanning both to big volunteer businesses like ours and private. It’s a great application and the support is phenomenal!
The ShiftPlanning team is great! They’re eager to listen and better their services. Workaholics maybe?
