ScheduleAnywhere overview

What is ScheduleAnywhere?

ScheduleAnywhere is an online employee scheduling solution which enables users to schedule employees across multiple departments and locations, manage staffing requirements, track coverage, manage time off requests, control overtime, inform employees of schedule updates, and more. The system is designed for organizations in a range of industries including retail, business services, transportation, government, energy, healthcare, public safety, and law enforcement.

With ScheduleAnywhere, users can schedule and assign employees shifts, rotations, shift patterns, and time off, with the ability to schedule multiple employees at once and copy entire schedules or rotations to remove the need to re-enter repeating schedules. Staffing requirements can be entered into schedules to give users insight into whether a particular location, department, position, or shift is over- or under-staffed. The number of hours and staff members scheduled is automatically tracked, enabling users to monitor and control overtime. Employees scheduled across more than one department automatically appear on multiple schedules, allowing all of their managers to see when and where that employee is scheduled.

Users can manage employee permissions in ScheduleAnywhere, controlling whether employees can view individual or staff schedules, and make requests for time off, additional hours, and shift swaps. Self-scheduling can also be implemented, with manager review and approval of employee shifts before schedules are finalized. Employees are automatically notified of new published schedules, request approvals, and schedule changes by email or SMS, according to their communication preferences. Custom reports can be generated in ScheduleAnywhere, including schedules by shift, position, employee, skill, time frame, department, or location, and users can create reports on employee attendance, time off requests, schedule requests, total hours, estimated costs, employee skills, and much more.

Please, add a way for time accrued/time requests off auditing (so employees know their leave balances and cannot put in for time off past their accrued current accrual balances).

Pros
Employees can view personal schedule in several length variations; ability to see availability of open vacation slots.

Cons
Schedule Anywhere needs an accrual (vacation, compensation time, sick etc.) self-audit capacity; because Schedule Anywhere lacks this capacity, our facility has DOWNGRADED to a 1990's scheduling software program that really lacks clarity and efficiency.

online accessibility for our employees. Its much easier to organize, keep track and create our daily, weekly and monthly schedules!

Pros
I like the ease of creating and navigating a schedule. It has boosted the efficiency of my job immensely! With the upgrade the weeks are separated so its easy to input schedules for the entire month and multiple personnel!

Cons
The only thing I like least about this software is that the app does not allow you to view schedules by department and employee per day.

Until purchasing the schedule anywhere software we were doing our scheduling on Excel. Our schedules change daily and this was very time consuming. By using the schedule anywhere it has allowed us to cut down on the time spent updating schedules. We post our schedules 5 weeks in advance and this makes it very easy to update and select weeks we want to post. I love the messaging option. In the past we would copy the Excel and email to each staff member as changes occurred. Now they can get updates on their cell phones and email which is a great time saver. It also allows our per diems to submit their schedule requests here rather than submitting a form for approval. We will be using this for our flu clinic program for the first time this year. We have about 100 staff who are moved around daily and sometimes hourly and was again done in Excel, by having this tool, this is going to make that process so much easier with less confusion on where people are scheduled. The system is easy to learn, very user friendly. The 2 training sessions were helpful and I was able to create my schedules that same day with ease. The feedback from the staff has been great, everyone seems to be happy with it and have had no complaints! I wished we'd purchased it long ago.

Pros
I love the mobile app version of Schedule Anywhere. It allows me to look at my schedule and my coworkers' schedules at the touch of a finger. It's extremely easy to use.

Cons
I wish this app would have an option to sync with Google Calendars. I use Google Calendar for all my personal events, and I wish I could upload my work events into my calendar - I currently enter them manually every month.

Pros
Schedule Anywhere makes scheduling easy! We have full-time, part-time and equipment scheduling on SA and we love it. It is quick to access online and easy to use and read.

Cons
On the mobile app, you have to click through a few pages to find what you are looking for based on who you are. And on the web based site, you can't click off of the page and then click page to it without being automatically logged out. Other than silly little things like that, it's great!

Benefits

Employees working in more than one location or department appear on multiple schedules, giving managers insight into all of a shared employee’s shifts, and ScheduleAnywhere automatically prevents overlapping shifts to ensure that no employees are double-booked.

Staffing requirements can be added into schedules by location, department, position, or shift, enabling users to flexibly monitor coverage, with automatic tracking of scheduled hours and staff members for overtime management.

Users are able to select from 1-day, 7-day, 14-day, 28-day, and 42-day schedule views, and highlight shifts in different colors to identify sick days, vacations, and other items.

Employees are notified of published schedules by SMS or email, according to their specified communications preferences.

Employee attributes including training, certifications, and skills can be tracked, with automatic alerts 90 days before licences or certifications are due to expire.
