About ScheduleAnywhere

ScheduleAnywhere is an online employee scheduling solution which enables users to schedule employees across multiple departments and locations, manage staffing requirements, track coverage, manage time off requests, control overtime, inform employees of schedule updates, and more. The system is designed for organizations in a range of industries including retail, business services, transportation, government, energy, healthcare, public safety, and law enforcement.

With ScheduleAnywhere, users can schedule and assign employees shifts, rotations, shift patterns, and time off, with the ability to schedule multiple employees at once and copy entire schedules or rotations to remove the need to re-enter repeating schedules. Staffing requirements can be entered into schedules to give users insight into whether a particular location, department, position, or shift is over- or under-staffed. The number of hours and staff members scheduled is automatically tracked, enabling users to monitor and control overtime. Employees scheduled across more than one department automatically appear on multiple schedules, allowing all of their managers to see when and where that employee is scheduled.

Users can manage employee permissions in ScheduleAnywhere, controlling whether employees can view individual or staff schedules, and make requests for time off, additional hours, and shift swaps. Self-scheduling can also be implemented, with manager review and approval of employee shifts before schedules are finalized. Employees are automatically notified of new published schedules, request approvals, and schedule changes by email or SMS, according to their communication preferences. Custom reports can be generated in ScheduleAnywhere, including schedules by shift, position, employee, skill, time frame, department, or location, and users can create reports on employee attendance, time off requests, schedule requests, total hours, estimated costs, employee skills, and much more.

    [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] helped me set up the system and was very patient and helpful. If I have issues, he answers no matter what day or time it is.

    I used to spend up to 4 hours per day on hand-generated spreadsheets. It’s all I ever got accomplished. Now, I can Add employees, change schedules, and see years ahead within minutes or less!

    Our staff loves this product! They can now submit for time off and view schedules from any pc or their phone.

    This product has saved our Agency money and time.. I can now accomplish scheduling tasks in a fraction of the time freeing myself and other supervisors up to concentrate on other issues. It’s highly efficient and visually pleasing!

    Schedule Anywhere is one of the best products our Agency has ever implemented. I highly recommend this to anyone whether you have 5 employees or 500.

    Pros

    To be able to visually see our entire staffs schedules for a 6-week period with just a glance.

    Cons

    Initial set up was a little too complicated for me to understand. For example, setting up Shifts and Coverage Watches, understanding when to use an Explanation, and understanding all of the features. Once set up, it was a breeze!

    I’d like to be able to view more days spans instead of just 1, 7, 14 etc. for example I’d like to be able to view 2, 3, 4 .... etc.

    I wish the app was more detailed and I could view the entire schedule instead of just one day at a time.

    I’d like to be able to print all people on a shift daily as opposed to just the ones working.

    The program does its job for us. I wish it would speak with Google calendar and other scheduling programs.

    Pros

    We have several different shifts and units. Schedule Anywhere allows us to view yearly schedules for our essential employees.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to use at times. The mobile version needs to be improved. It is basically useless as it stands now.

    Response from Atlas Business Solutions

    Dear Jason, Thank you for taking the time to review ScheduleAnywhere. I'm sorry to learn that you are finding the software difficult to use at times.

    Schedule Anywhere team has been wonderful to work with. They are quick to answer questions. They also listen to our suggestion on how to better their program and have made exceptional changes from our feedback.

    Pros

    Schedule Anywhere as really changed my scheduling job. I have been scheduling in an Emergency Department for 10 years, the last 3 yrs with Schedule Anywhere. I had been awesome to be able to see staff schedules across the system, if they work in other departments, and that staff have access to schedule from home! They can submit swaps, schedule request, and vacation request on their days off. I also love the ease of the coverage watches to assure my unit is properly staffed for each shift. The filter option is also very useful when staffing a large department.

    Cons

    I wish that staff could see explanations beyond the self scheduling dates. We use explanation to mark their assigned weekend/holidays and future trades. It is a nice visual for staff to be able to see and plan for the future. I also wish, as a manager, that I could edit Shifts/ requests from the Messages Inbox.

    I have loved working in SA for 2 1/2 years....so much better than the old way we did scheduling!! staff love being able to view work schedule from their phone and it is very easy to submit trades.

    Pros

    admins can add information well into the future, no paper trail to keep track of like in past scheduling options at our facility, automatic opening of the timers, add and delete staff easily

    easy for new staff to learn how to use, love being able to see the schedule on phone or work on from home

    Cons

    recently our facility blocked staff from viewing future information on the schedule...this has been a huge dissatifyer for staff because they can't view future trades, holiday/weekend assignments, details on who they can trade with or not. They can only view a finalized schedule or during the timer for BID sheet they can view that 6 weeks.

    I would love to be able to alphabetize the staff names in the messages area because sometimes I need to look up past messages sent to staff. right now it is set up to organize by submission date and time...which is great most of the time. maybe look at adding a box to choose alphabetize if we need to find a specific person.

    would like to see an option to copy the same explanation for the entire row for the 6 week view.

    is there a way to count specific shifts a person has scheduled for a 6 week period? example Sally works 6 nights and 12 day shifts.

    Response from Atlas Business Solutions

    Hi Lisa: Thank you for the great review! So happy to hear that your staff love being able to view work schedules from their phones and find it very easy to submit trades. I'll have your customer support representative get in touch with you about some of your questions.

    Thanks again! All the best, Jane
