Frequently asked questions

Maybe you’re not doing OK. Count all the hours you spent last year, and will spend next year. How inflexible and time-consuming is changing the schedules when someone is out? Snap Schedule shift scheduling software saves you time by dragging and dropping rather than erasing and writing. It will also help you prevent under and over staffing, schedule conflicts, and reduce your personnel overtime and labor costs. And pencil and paper cannot let your employees access their schedules online or email shift schedules to your employees. It can’t change views to weeks, full month, and it can’t show you just Joe’s or Sue’s schedules. Doing these tasks by hand is very time consuming and difficult due to workload fluctuations, frequent special requests from employees, last minute changes, and high employee turnover. Without the right shift scheduling software tools in place, you will expend a great deal of time on these tasks — time better spent on more critical, revenue-generating activities.

Using Excel templates for shift scheduling is definitely better than using pencil-and-paper but you get much more with Snap Schedule shift scheduling apps, considering the price you would pay for Excel and scheduling templates. Scheduling personnel is really a multi-dimensional problem that cannot be represented in a flat row and column format. There are employees, shifts, skills, and dates – and you really need to be able to view the schedule from multiple vantage points. You will spend many unnecessary hours working around Excel limitations. Unlike Snap Schedule shift scheduling apps, Excel is not specifically designed for employee shift scheduling and attendance management.

Snap Schedule 365 is a cloud-based shift scheduling app, accessible 24/7 from a desktop, laptop, tablets or mobile phone equipped with a modern web browser. Supported web browsers include Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari, Opera, Firefox, and Chrome.  Regardless of the browser used, there is no difference in functionality.  Android and iOS employee access apps are also available and can be downloaded from the AppStore or GooglePlay.

Yes. Snap Schedule 365 shift scheduling app provides a robust system for recording work hours, when and where an employee starts and ends shifts, and time card data for payroll. Employees can punch in/out from their smart phones or use an on-site iPad. Schedulers can set the time window for when employees are allowed to punch in or out. Schedulers can see the punch data in real-time in the Punch view or use the data to report the variances between planned and actual work hours and costs. Employees can view their planned and actual work hours for the current, previous, or next payroll cycle. On-call, overtime, paid and unpaid time-off hours are also presented. Alternatively, time card data can be manually entered.

Yes. Snap Schedule 365 uses a role-based scheme to control access to its data. This ensures that only authorized users can carry out specified functions and that sensitive data is not visible to people who do not have the need to view it.

Roles are created for various job functions and used to control who can create, view, and approve schedules as well as making changes to employee information. The permissions to perform certain operations within Snap Schedule 365 are assigned to specific roles. Schedulers and managers are assigned particular roles, and through those role associations, acquire the permissions to view and/or perform particular commands and system functions. Management of individual user rights becomes a matter of simply assigning appropriate roles to the users.

Yes. Snap Schedule 365 shift scheduling app supports non-cyclical and cyclical schedules. It can accommodate multiple shift lengths and shift patterns for fixed, rotating, compressed work week, 8, 10, 12, and 24 hour work schedules.

Yes. Enjoy the flexibility of setting up multiple locations and always knowing whether your locations are staffed adequately. Whether you need to set up work stations as various locations to assign personnel shifts, or a network of branches managing various locations and their respective service points you can utilize Snap Schedule’s shift scheduling software location feature. Snap Schedule’s dashboard displays a staffing overview and hours by location so there is never any guesswork or time wasted trying to manually calculate.

Snap Schedule 365 shift scheduling app helps you promote fair scheduling practices and avoid costly fines and litigation by providing the tools, visibility, and reporting you need to stay in compliance. It alerts you of shift assignments that do not meet the required minimum rest between shifts or not having enough breaks in a shift. With its flexible overtime and shift premium pay rules, you can handle virtually any type of on-call and overtime compensation pays.

Automated callouts reduce grievances by enforcing callout rules and equalizing overtime opportunities— bringing transparency to the process and improving productivity and work-life balance. Snap Schedule 365 provides 24/7, real-time status of the callout process. It tracks who accepted, declined, or did not answer and how many times an employee refuses a callout, which is important for equitably distributing work per the union agreement. Management and union representatives can instantly see the employee’s shift assignments, hours worked, overtime hours, and how the callout was done.
