CareStaffer, the scheduling module, has four different methods of scheduling, each with different advantages
- System Aided Scheduling:
The simplest of all our methods, this allows a manager to use a tool tip to assign any shift once or multiple times to any employee with a simple click. All organization rules, OT, credentials or staffing needs are enforced, and the manager is alerted if they are violated.
- Shift Templates:
This commonly used method allows a sequence of shifts to be repeated every week, every two weeks or any other interval, into the future until changed, for each employee.
Our staff empowering self-scheduling has been refined using customer feedback since we initiated it 13 years ago. Managers open up a scheduling period to staff, and employees choose the shifts they desire. Like in system aided scheduling above, all rules are enforced and alerts available. Fairness considerations are enforced!
- Automated Scheduling:
The system takes all contract commitments for each staff member, leave requests, staff preferences, and credentials into account and automatically generates a full schedule. As in all instances, managers have the final say to override before publishing online, after which cancellations, swaps etc. are managed by our system.
