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.

Great tool


Sarah M.

Only one problem.

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

I used this awesome tool to schedule 12 hr shifts for an organization with over 30 employees. Never had an issue knowing who was on night shift or on call.

Cons

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.

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.

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.

Pros

You can use Schedule Anywhere at work, home or on your phone. Easy to make changes and for staff to put in schedule requests.

Cons

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.
