The benefits of employee scheduling software

Employee scheduling software is increasingly used to create work schedules. Making a schedule takes a lot of time and often is a complicated task. By using our planning software, you can easily and quickly create work schedules and keep a grip on the expected costs.

Schedule ShiftBase

Quick and easy scheduling

With Shiftbase you can easily set up repeating shifts and standard shifts, which can be dragged and dropped into a schedule.

Recurring shifts

Add a shift and make it recur for a specified period. From this, you can make a schedule template, which can easily be adjusted when needed. With recurring shifts, you preset which days of the week to schedule and until when you want this schedule to run.

  • Drag and drop shifts

  • Recurring shifts

  • Multiple timesheet views



Employees can indicate their availability via mobile app or computer which is then displayed in the work schedule so the planner can easily take this into account. Additionally, supervisors can enter availability on an employee’s behalf.

Availability reminders

The software features availability reminders so employees do not forget to update their availability.

  • A clear overview of the available employees

  • Automatically send availability reminders

Open Shift

Open shifts

With open shifts you can send employees an invitation for a particular shift. The planner determines which employees are invited who will receive email and push notifications to let them know. The first employee to confirm the shift is automatically scheduled.

  • Inviting employees to take a shift

  • Let employees schedule their own shifts

Required Shifts

Required shifts

It is possible to set the required occupation in the work schedule. For example, you could indicate the minimum, maximum, or the exact number of shifts to be scheduled. With required shifts, you can easily check whether the final schedule meets the desired occupancy.

  • A schedule that always meets the set criteria

  • Clear overview of the shifts to be planned



Employee absence is easily visible in scheduling, allowing the planner to easily take them into account. Each absence is displayed in a colour corresponding to the absence type.
