We have about 30 student workers and we currently do their scheduling in a very basic template in Excel but it is horrible and takes a long time, manually to schedule everyone forget about making changes or separate shift changes. Does anyone use scheduling software or created their own that they would be willing to share?

 

Thanks

Deb

UT Arlington has been using When to Work (http://whentowork.com/) – a hosted scheduling application. It is affordable and easy to use. We have been very happy with it.

 

Dominican University would second When to Work.  It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and allows for shift changes/swaps between employees ….

I had the same program and years ago wrote our own which works great. We are in the process of making it app based and should have something to share at the end of this semester.

We use When to Work at UW-Milwaukee also and it does a very nice job.

We have been using Google Docs - specifically one spreadsheet that remains static with the students' schedule for the semester, and then another spreadsheet that they self-manage shift swapping/changes.

Hi,

We also use a spreadsheet in Google Docs which remains static. To self-manage the shift swapping/changes, we use the "Help Desk" email calendar and block the full time of the shift as an appointment with a title of "Joe working for Sue". Then they can also send that appointment to their own calendar as a reminder.
