JUST TO NAME A FEW
Managers often function as administrative bottlenecks—overloaded with vacation requests and shift swap approvals. Planday turns that dynamic on its head by letting managers choose how much autonomy their employees have, which saves managers time while still giving them control over their business.
Planday automatically sends you compliance warnings, payroll forecasts, and employee availability, so when you want to create a schedule all you have to do is drag and drop shifts into place.
Ever create the perfect schedule only to have a key employee request time off that week? Planday solves that problem by allowing managers and employees to collaborate on a working schedule that suits everyone, saving you time and frustration.
Don’t waste time manually creating the same schedule week after week. If you have a weekly work schedule that suits you, simply copy it over to the next week..
Get more insight into your employees’ activity, so you can make smarter decisions about which employees should be working and when.
Planday serves as an employee management hub, so you can see an employee’s work history, timesheets, and payroll information all in one place, giving you more insight into where there’s room for improvement.
The Planday app allows employees to clock-in from any device, but you can control where they’re allowed to clock-in from and how early they can clock-in before a shift. You can also manually edit hours, giving you more control over payroll costs.
Whenever employees request time off or want to swap shifts, you’ll be notified so you can approve the requests.
COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION
Communicating with employees can be challenging, especially when you might not be at work at the same time.
Send emails or text messages to employee groups or specific locations. For example, message all bartenders working at your downtown location.
Send updates to all employees when they clock-in, so everyone knows about any upcoming changes.
Employees can message each other about trading shifts or finding a last-minute replacement without you having to do it for them.
Because Planday integrates with the tools you already use, it serves as your real-time communication portal that keeps everyone updated on what’s going on.
With an overview of who’s going on vacation, who’s sick, and who’s swapping shifts, you can quickly create schedules while taking employee availability into consideration.
Make informed decisions about scheduling and payroll with the help of revenue forecasts.
Use current employee working hours, overtime, and scheduled vacation to see what your expected payroll costs will be.
Use the Planday app to stay on top of employee management tasks on the go. You can easily make scheduling adjustments, message employees, chat with Planday customer support, and more—all from within the app.
