Plan and set schedules days, weeks or months in advance
Workforce scheduling has never been so easy! Easily create jobs in minutes. Assign those jobs to your employees and notify them of their new assignment. Employees can then punch into those jobs and you’ll get the amount of time worked under each job for easier job costing and customer invoicing.
Push and email notifications
After you’ve created jobs for your employees and assigned them to shifts, let employees know about their new schedule by push notification, email or both.
Estimated vs actual hours
Compare scheduled job hours worked to actual hours worked directly from an employees time card.
Ensure that employees are at the correct job location when they punch in or out by using the GPS feature. Their location will show up on their time card next to each punch.
REAL-TIME DASHBOARD VIEW
Quickly review which employees are currently punched into shifts and which are not directly from your dashboard view.
Also on your dashboard you can find the scheduled shifts for the day. Review them and make adjustments if needed.
TRACK MORE THAN JUST JOBS
If you have multiple offices or job sites, locations are a great way to track where an employee is spending their workday.
Create your locations, assign them to employees, and when employees go to punch in they’ll select their location – you can also assign locations to shifts. The amount of time spent at each location will be reflected on your employees time card and in your reports.

How to create, manage and apply a shift template.
By using the Template feature, you can create templated schedules for employees which can be applied to future shifts.

Manage a Template
Now that you’ve created the template, you can make view it by going to Options –> Template –> Manage.
You will be able to view:
Name of the template
Who it was created by
When it was created
The total amount of shifts
The total amount of hours
You will also have the option to Edit the template and Delete it.
Apply a Template
Now that you have your template created and ready to go, you can apply it.
First you will want to navigate to the pay period you’d like the template to be applied to. You can use the left and right arrows to do this. You will then want to select Options followed by Template and then Apply.
