Our new “auto scheduler” feature is super cool. Here’s why:
It takes your employees’ availability and “automatically” (see below for details) schedules them for shifts based on: (a) your schedule template; (b) the number of scheduled hours a given employee has in the pay week (lower hours get priority); and (c) seniority.
It will save you tons of time.
It gives you complete control over who works when!
Watch this short video clip for a quick tour of this awesome new enhancement:
It seems like everyone is using text messages more and more as a primary means of communication. Given this, we’ve added a new feature to our automatic notification alerts. In the past, your employees would receive e-mail notifications for certain automatic triggers (see list below). Now, they also have the option of receiving text message alerts as well!
The available alerts for text messages includes:
General message notifications
General pager notifications
Shift swap notifications
Shift bid notifications
Through the “edit user profile” screen, your employees can pick and choose which alerts they wish to receive. It’s important to point out that the “text message address” and “cell phone carrier” fields must be properly filled out in order for the text message alerts to function properly.
