With Shiftbase you can easily set up (repeating) shifts. You can create standard shifts, which can be dragged and dropped into the schedule. In addition, shifts can also be added in the schedule, where the standard services are customizable.
Recurring shifts can be scheduled. Add one shift and make this shift recur for a specified period. This has the advantage that you can make a schedule template, which can be easily adjusted when needed. When scheduling recurring shifts, you can indicate on which days of the week shift is needed and to which date the shift has to occur.

Employees can indicate their availability via the mobile app or desktop PC. The indicated availability is reflected in the work schedule, so the planner can easily take this into account. In addition, a supervisor can also enter the availability of colleagues. This is useful when employees themselves are unable to provide their availability.
The software is provided with the ability to automatically send availability reminders. This is useful in case employees have not yet provided their availability. This way the planner does not need to keep asking the employees for their availability.

In the personnel planning, the expected costs of employees can be made available. The costs can be viewed per employee, per day and per month, as well as the expected weekly costs per team.
The expected turnover can be added to the planning. This makes it possible to see the percentage of personnel costs in the employee schedules, and you can create a schedule based on the percentage of labor costs.
Set maximum schedule budgets. This can be done in the form of time of salary. When the planned 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, and they receive an email and push notification. The employee who wants to work the shift and confirms this first is automatically scheduled.
Inviting employees to take a shift
Let employees schedule their own shifts
It is possible to set the required occupation in the work schedule. For example: You could indicate the minimum, maximum or exact number of shifts that have to be scheduled. With required shifts you can easily check whether the final schedule meets the desired occupancy.
