What are some of the features of Schedule Manager?
Schedule Manager allows users to create custom positions for their staff and then schedule their staff manually or use SwiftShift™ to populate the schedule based on those positions, staff availability, and priority. Staff members have the ability to set their own availabilities and to submit leave requests. Admins also have the ability to create different schedule templates to easily reuse.
What is SwiftShift™?
The SwiftShift insta-scheduler allows managers to smartly populate a schedule based on staff availability, priority, position, and maximum number of hours per staff member. Shifts that have no one available will remain open so managers may fill those shifts manually.
Can I license Schedule Manager separetely?
Schedule Manager may be licensed separately from Lifeguard Manager and Facility Manager or bundled as part of your HydroApps suite. The advantage to licensing HydroApps together is that users are shared across all applications, meaning each staff member only needs to be set up once, unlike standalone applications which will require you to create a user account in each application. Admins may then adjust a user’s permissions in HydroApps at any time.
What type of user notifications are available for Schedule Manager?
Currently, Schedule Manager has the ability to send notifications for published schedules, announcements, availability reminders, leave request approval or denial, open shifts, shift reminders, shift assignments and requests, and many other triggers.
Does Schedule Manager accomodate different positions working across multiple pools?
Yes, Schedule Manager allows you to schedule staff across multiple pools and allows you to create and assign various positions to each of your staff members. In fact, you may also create different positions for each pool, assign multiple positions to a staff member at specific pools, and specify the maximum hours a staff member is available to work in a week and in a single day.
Does Schedule Manager have a time clock function? At present, Schedule Manager does not have a time clock function. This is due to the fact that most of our customers already have seperate systems in place for time entry and payroll that are controlled by human resources, but it is being considered for future release. If you have the need for time clock functionality as part of your scheduling solution, we would love to hear from you to see how we can accomodate you.
Licensing Schedule Manager
Schedule Manager is licensed on an annual basis with pricing based on number of staff members.
