Schedulehead Review

What Is Schedulehead?

Essentially, Schedulehead’s goal is to take the hassle out of scheduling employees. If you’re a business owner and have a lot of employees, I’m sure you’re familiar with the persistent struggle of maintaining an employee scheduling. The phone calls and emails alone can take up hours of your valuable time. A complicated schedule may even require a paid staff member. With Schedulehead, you no longer need someone to do your employee scheduling – Schedulehead does it all for you – well, most of it anyways.

How Does It Work?

If Schedulehead could remove all human interaction and make employee scheduling totally automated, it would. However, like anything else, it requires just a bit of oversight. Most employers have a general idea of who their best employees are and rank them respectively. How many times has this person showed up late? Have they ever missed a shift? What’s their work-ethic like? There are so many criteria that go in to what makes a good employee and keeping this all in your head can be difficult.Schedulehead solves this by acting like any manager would. It thinks logically and makes the best decisions when it comes to staffing. It does this by keeping track of all these metrics and more and giving each employee a 1-5 star rating.

Features

AUTOTEXT – automatically texts your workers when there is an open shift Shift Equalizer – Part of Schedulehead’s Artificial Intelligence, this allows you to balance your shifts to ensure that all workers are distributed equally.

Star Ranking – Each worker has a rank from 1 to 5 stars. Every shift has a Reviewer who determines how well the worker performs. There is also the option to leave feedback for the worker: which gives businesses (and Schedulehead itself) more information to make better decisions).

Employee Profile – Each employee has a profile where a manager can leave comments for the administrators, see how many times they’ve showed up late, view past shifts, among other useful information.

Repeating Templates – Recently rolled out, the repeating template option allows for one click/multiple sign-ups. For example, a worker can sign up for a shift that repeats every Monday at 9:00 am for the next 3 months.

Web Check-in – This option is useful for companies that have different events at different places and want to make sure your workers will be showing up for their shift. Schedulehead sends an email out 24 hours before the shift and the worker checks-in just like an airplane.

Schedulehead’s minimalist design is actually advantageous. Built to get right to the point, the app is focused on its one purpose – scheduling workers who are best suited for the job.
