With Shiftbase, you can easily set up repeating as well as standard shifts, which can be dragged and dropped into a schedule.
Scheduling a recurring shift can be done by adding a shift and making it recur for a specified period. Based on this, you can make a schedule template, which can be easily adjusted when needed. With recurring shifts, you pick which set weekdays to schedule, and an end date for the schedule.

In strategic personnel planning, the expected labor costs can be calculated. Projected costs can be viewed per employee, per day, or per month, in addition to weekly team cost projections.
Expected turnover can be added to planning, making it possible to see the percentage of labor costs in the employee schedules. Shiftbase then allows the creation of a schedule based on the percentage of labor costs.
Set maximum budget for a schedule, based on either time or salary. When the projected costs exceed the budget, a notification is sent to the planner.
With open shifts, you can send employees an invitation for a particular shift. The planner determines which employees are invited, sending an email and push notification to let them know. The first employee to confirm the shift is automatically scheduled.
