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.

Key benefits of using ScheduleAnywhere

  • 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.

    Pros
    We went from paper scheduling to online scheduling with Schedule Anywhere so it has been a definite improvement. Like all software programs, I do feel like there is room for improvement.
    Their Customer Service is outstanding, the software helps our company on so many positive ways.
    It saves me time and is so easy to use and navigate. The customer service is awesome and everyone I have dealt with has been so supportive and helpful.
    Cons
    We were getting complaints about communication between sections and changes to printed schedules that no one knew about. This program has greatly diminished the complaints.
    On the administrative side, it didn't alert users if their schedule was changed unknowingly. This resulted in more than one close call in someone missing a shift.
    On your phone it is a little more difficult to utilize all the functions. If you ar scheduled on multiple units it is hard to check that.

    Amazing Product!

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] helped me set up the system and was very patient and helpful. If I have issues, he answers no matter what day or time it is. I used to spend up to 4 hours per day on hand-generated spreadsheets. It’s all I ever got accomplished. Now, I can Add employees, change schedules, and see years ahead within minutes or less! Our staff loves this product! They can now submit for...

    Pros

    To be able to visually see our entire staffs schedules for a 6-week period with just a glance.

    Cons

    Initial set up was a little too complicated for me to understand. For example, setting up Shifts and Coverage Watches, understanding when to use an Explanation, and understanding all of the features. Once set up, it was a breeze! I’d like to be able to view more days spans instead of just 1, 7, 14 etc. for example I’d like to be able to view 2, 3, 4 .... etc. I wish the app was more detailed and I could view the entire schedule instead of just one day at a time. I’d like to be able to print all people on a shift daily as opposed to just the ones working.

    Hi Rhonda: Wonderful! Thank you for such a great review. We are so happy to hear that ScheduleAnywhere has saved you so much time and money! I'll share your thoughtful comments with your sales executive. Thanks again! Best regards, Jane

    Good product but not the easiest to work with

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    The program does its job for us. I wish it would speak with Google calendar and other scheduling programs.

    Pros

    We have several different shifts and units. Schedule Anywhere allows us to view yearly schedules for our essential employees.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to use at times. The mobile version needs to be improved. It is basically useless as it stands now.

    Vendor response

    Dear Jason, Thank you for taking the time to review ScheduleAnywhere. I'm sorry to learn that you are finding the software difficult to use at times. I'll ask your account manager to get in touch. He'll be able to provide some tips and suggestions to provide support. We also have a number of helpful videos on our website (under the resource section) that you may find helpful. Thank you again for your feedback. Best regards, Jane

    Schedule anywhere

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I have loved working in SA for 2 1/2 years....so much better than the old way we did scheduling!! staff love being able to view work schedule from their phone and it is very easy to submit trades.

    Pros

    admins can add information well into the future, no paper trail to keep track of like in past scheduling options at our facility, automatic opening of the timers, add and delete staff easily easy for new staff to learn how to use, love being able to see the schedule on phone or work on from home

    Cons

    recently our facility blocked staff from viewing future information on the schedule...this has been a huge dissatifyer for staff because they can't view future trades, holiday/weekend assignments, details on who they can trade with or not. They can only view a finalized schedule or during the timer for BID sheet they can view that 6 weeks. I would love to be able to alphabetize the staff names in...

    Schedule Anywhere Review

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I have a lot on my wish-list, but overall I am genuinely satisfied with SA. It has made life so much easier than having to make schedules on Excel spreadsheets like we used to do in the past. The cost is reasonable and definitely worth it.

    Pros

    --We like the fact that it can be well displayed on the computer, but then also has an App so you can see the schedule on the run. --Being able to use Highlighters and change colors of fonts for different shifts. --Having a "Today" button on the drop down calendar. (That suggestion was from me and one of my co-workers!) --Quick, friendly responses from my Account Rep [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. --Easy to use functionality and features.

    Cons

    --I know there are buttons, but it would be better if we could use keyboard functions to Copy and Paste. --It would be nice if the current day Column was highlighted in some way so it makes the current shifts/day stand out from the rest of the week that's being viewed. --I hate that in order to move from one schedule to the next I have to use a Drop Down. It would be better to have buttons across...
