StaffDad is a simple, low cost, easy to use scheduling tool for those companies scheduling anywhere from 5, 70, 800, or 9999 employees. It is especially beneficial to any company that is currently using Excel spreadsheets or other manual systems to organize and generate schedules.
It is also beneficial to organizations that are using a product that has unnecessary features at a higher cost.
Using Staffdad is very easy and only takes a few minutes to learn. Once your company is signed up, employees can either be entered manually or, using the system import wizard.
Shifts can then be entered and schedules can be created. Once a schedule has been created, the system has the ability to copy the schedule to future weeks and modify each week as necessary. Schedules can be sent to employees directly using our built in Notification system.
Using the Notify feature, all employees can be notified when the schedule is posted via e-mail or text messages (as designated in the employee profile). If changes are made to the schedule the Administrator/Scheduler can notify only the relevant employees of the changes.
All employees can have a read only login to the system to check the schedule and to see how other employees are scheduled.
This can be turned on or off depending on the needs of the organization. Additional features such as employee messaging can be used
if the employees regularly login to the system.
No, the employee would need to contact the Administrator/Scheduler responsible for the schedule to request changes. The employee can have the ability to look at the full schedule, to see which other employees are scheduled , but all changes will need to be communicated through the Administrator/Scheduler.
The system has a 3 color system (Under Hours, At Hours, Over Hours) that can be tailored to your specific requirements. It can be setup using different colors and numbre of hours for Part and Full Time staff. The system will only provide a visual alert to the Administrator/Scheduler. The decision to the modify the schedule based on the alert is left to the Administrator/Scheduler, the system will allow any number of hours to be scheduled.
The Administrator/Scheduler can print the entire weekly or two week schedules. Employees have the ability to print their own weekly schedule if they log into the system, or if they receive their schedule by HTML e-mail.
