Simplify staffing and scheduling with an easy-to-use cloud-based application.
Assign student workers, pages, reference librarians, and circulation managers to a desk schedule. Shifts can overlap too if staffers' have a waterfall schedule and you can assign manager's to full-day shifts.
Create a dedicated schedule for staffing your library's virtual chat reference service. Need to reschedule a shift due to an unexpected meeting or out sick? Swap and give up shifts right in the system from any device!
In a multi-floor or zoned building where you have multiple service points on different levels? Create schedules for each floor/zone or one big schedule and tag shifts by floor/zone.
Staffing multiple buildings, branches or campuses? Create schedules for each location and assign staffers accordingly. Create 'Manager' shifts overlap them if needed.
Instead of creating schedules by place, create schedules by position. Build schedules for just managers, just workstudies, just reference librarians, or just pages. Shifts can be color-coded by desk or location.
Is your library running a conference, workshops, or special event? Create Schedules by 'Event' so staffers know when they're working and where.
