With ScheduleAnywhere, everything you need to schedule your employees is right at your fingertips. Your employees' names are listed along the left side of the screen. If your employees work in departments, or have specific positions, this information appears next to the employee's name. The Total Hours column shows you how many hours an employee is scheduled and helps reduce overtime.
Schedule your employees within the scheduling worksheet. Separate groups of employees by adding dividers to your schedule. If you have staffing requirements, you can enter them into the schedule by shift, position, department, or location, and see whether you're over- or under-scheduled. ScheduleAnywhere tracks the number of employees or hours you have scheduled.
You can schedule employees by locating them on the schedule and selecting the day(s) you wish to schedule. Use it to assign individual work shifts, shift patterns or rotations, and track time-off. ScheduleAnywhere is packed with powerful functions and tools to make employee scheduling easy.
If your employees work in multiple departments or locations, their names can appear on more than one schedule. ScheduleAnywhere automatically prevents overlapping shifts. By listing an employee on two different schedules, other managers will know when and where an employee is scheduled to work even if it's not in their department or location.
Create Custom Views and Schedules
See what you need to see
ScheduleAnywhere allows you to set up an unlimited number of custom schedules. Create a schedule for each of your locations or departments, as well as create schedules by position or shift. To switch schedules, just select the name of the schedule you wish to view.
You can schedule your employees from one of four different views. Choose a one-day view, a 7-day view, a 14-day view, 28-day, or 42-day view. To view a different scheduling period, press the next or previous buttons, or enter the date you wish to view and press the Go button.
Using ScheduleAnywhere to create schedules by position, department, or location is as simple as adding names to a schedule, plus you can create unlimited schedules. You can view all employees in your company or view employees by position, department, or location, or create your own custom view.
Creating custom schedules is easy
The Highlighter tool allows you to add background colors to specific items on the schedule. Using the Highlighter, you can easily identify schedule cells that match your criteria. For example, if want to emphasize employees scheduled for vacation or sick time, you can easily create a highlighter called "Vacation" or "Sick" and apply it to the schedule.
To view specific schedule information, you can apply a filter. Use filters to see only those employees scheduled a particular shift, or employees scheduled time off. Filters can also show you who is not scheduled. This is helpful when an employee calls in sick and you need to find a quick replacement.
Rotate and Copy Schedules
Timesaving tools make online employee scheduling easy
ScheduleAnywhere is the fastest way to schedule your employees. It saves you time by letting you schedule multiple employees in one easy step. You can copy schedules or rotations so you don't need to re-enter redundant or repeating work schedules, and much more! ScheduleAnywhere gives you the power to manage your employees' schedules and achieve your staffing goals.

Staffing Requirements and Coverage
See if you're covered
Do you need to maintain specific staffing requirements? Do you need to know how many people or hours you have scheduled by position, shift, skill or department? If so, ScheduleAnywhere is right for you!
Enter your staffing requirements and instantly see whether you have too few or too many employees scheduled. When employees call in sick or go on vacation, see how it affects your coverage.
See if you're covered
Many of today's businesses schedule overlapping shifts to increase staff coverage during peak times. With ScheduleAnywhere, you'll always know if you're covered. View the number of employees you have scheduled by hour, half-hour, 15-minute, 10-minute or 5-minute increments. Use filters to check coverage by shift, position, department, or location. The Labor Hours chart shows how labor hours are distributed throughout the day.
Reduce your labor cost
Avoid scheduling unnecessary overtime. From each schedule view, you can see how many hours an employee is scheduled. By displaying total hours on-screen, you will be able to better manage your employees' work schedules and reduce your labor expense.
Employees can appear on more than one work schedule so you can share employees with other managers, departments or locations. Regardless of the work schedule you're viewing, you will always know where and when a shared employee is scheduled. More importantly, you will know how many total hours a shared employee is scheduled, which can help reduce overtime. Get the online scheduling software that's designed to save you money.
Track Skills and Certifications
Reduce liability and schedule the right people
ScheduleAnywhere can keep track of employee attributes, such as skills, training, and certifications. If your employees are licensed or certified, ScheduleAnywhere will help make sure they stay current and reduce your legal exposure. You can create and track an unlimited number of skills and each can have its own effective date and expiration date, if applicable. ScheduleAnywhere will automatically alert you 90 days before any expiration date.
ScheduleAnywhere helps make sure you have scheduled the right people with the right skills. For example, you can track the number of employees scheduled with CPR certification or speak Spanish. ScheduleAnywhere employee scheduling software can show you if you have scheduled the right number of skilled people.

Employees can also be given permission to submit schedule requests online. Requests can be to cover open shifts, swap shifts, request additional hours or overtime, or to communicate changes in availability. You will be automatically notified by email when an employee makes a request. Login to view a request and make any necessary schedule adjustments. Requests can be added to the schedule for easy reference.
Print Schedules and Reports
Customize schedules and reports for any time frame
