    "Easy to use scheduling software with lots of features"

    September 22, 2008  |   By jcrunkel

    Pros

    Intuitive, drag-and-drop scheduling. See assignments, vacations, and leaves in multiple views. Cloning schedules and adjusting for no-shows only take a few mouse clicks. Extensive reports on schedules and costs. Export and email schedules.

    Cons

    Does not run on Windows 98 -- but I think that is not an issue nowadays.

    Summary

    For my scheduling needs, Snap Schedule is a perfect fit. When scheduling employees, I need to be able to see shift assignments, employee availabilities, and conflicts from different perspectives. Snap Schedule has 3 scedule views that I can use. Its daily view helps me see who are working, on-call, taking vacation or business leave, for any given day, week, or month. It displays employee names on the left, dates running across at the top, and employee?s assignments are shown graphically as rectangular blocks - much like a perpetual whiteboard. Small icons are use to indicate on-call, scheduling conflicts, and additional scheduling notes. Hovering the mouse over these icons pops up a window showing additional details. The total number of hours scheduled are automatically computed and shown at the bottom for each day.

    I use Snap Schedule?s Shift view to see work assignments by shifts and to determine if I have adequate shift coverage. The required number of people for each position, assigned, and variance counts are shown at the bottom for each shift. If I see a red colored variance count, I know I don?t have enough people to cover that shift. I use the Calendar view to see each employee?s schedule in the familiar calendar or monthly planner format. In any view, scheduling an employee, moving or swapping assignments is simply drag-and-drop.

    When there is a no show, I need to be able to find a substitute with the same skills. Snap Schedule lets me see who are available, worked the least hours, or have not exceeded work hour limits.

    I use Snap Schedule to email out employee schedules. For management reporting, I export reports to PDF files and email as attachments.
