Work Scheduling app

I was wondering if there was an app out there that would help me produce work schedules for my staff. The way we do them on the computer at work, is a week view (Tuesday through monday)... and we can either pick a day - and do line scheduling (Showing the break down of which hours each person would work on that given day with something that resembles a line graph), or we have our week view and have it show each person on our staff and which hours they're scheduled on any given day.

This would help while im out on the road, instead of pen/paper (i have HORRIBLE hand writing). That way when i get back to the office, I can just look at my phone and duplicate the work schedule without having to worry of deciphering if it was a B or an 8.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Work Scheduling app

That sounds like something you could do in excel. Very easy to keep excel updated on both computer and phone!

I have been using excel, however I was looking for something to actually simplify it.

For instance, click on an hour block for a specific day - pick a name out of preset names, pick a shift title out of preset titles, and drag "highlight method" to select the amount of hours to assign.

If nothing is available that's fine. Excel is still my friend.

Re: Work Scheduling app

i schedule my employees in outlook then sync. set them up as appointments - and label each one a different color - everyone know knows their color so they don't even check for their name now.

the only problem i really have is that i have to manually calculate the hours scheduled (keep everybody less than 40).

once the sched is set, i print to pdf and email the staff so everybody has a copy. if i'm off for the day, i look at the cal on the my phone to see who is working that moment.

i've been doing this for several years - with my apache, tp and now tp2.
since i already had the software and the syncing is painless, it was a nobrainer.

hope this helps.
