Customers definitely don’t have time to enter the same repeating shift over and over again on the calendar. With Shiftboard, managers can post a repeating shift by date, time, day, week, etc. This means you can post the same shift through the end of the week, month, or year.
A delivery customer can post a shift for the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month and only needs to enter the information once. The same goes for a theater needing ushers each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 7:00 PM through the end of 2009. Once the scheduler clicks “Set Coverage” all the shifts go straight to the calendar for viewing. The scheduler also has the option to keep these shifts hidden until it is the correct time for them to go live.
I love showing this part of our software because it is always an immediate jaw dropper. Potential customers instantly recognize the value. “WOW, that’s cool” and “I can actually do that?” are common responses.
