Make the biggest business headache more manageable with this very approachable scheduling application. If you've used Microsoft Excel, Staff Planner will seem an old friend. Completely based on the functionality of the spreadsheet program, this application keeps track of employee working hours, tardiness, vacation, and overtime. The interface makes it easy to edit timetables without typing. We like the detailed help section, which also includes tutorials to walk you through the process. Also available are limited report features, such as running charts on various criteria. Schedules can be created as far in the future as you can see, and can be searched by time frame. Overall, this standard scheduling program should fulfill the most basic needs of any business or group.

Developer's Description

Staff Planner is an Excel-based, long-term-planning tool for scheduling your employees' time. In Staff Planner 2006, you simply select your code and click the cells you want to update, whilst still maintaining data integrity. It includes built-in security (four login levels), reports, charts, and the Planning Board; also overtime/time-in-lieu planning, staff-cover monitoring, print and save-to-file including the Web, a help/user manual, and tutorials. You define all codes (for example, for sick leave, exams, clients, and work functions), departments, job titles, and staff names. The program has two tutorials as well as example data to get you started quickly. Staff Planner 2006 is ?select & click based?, whereby data entry is direct to cells (staff name/date). This makes updating more natural and quick, whilst still maintaining data integrity.

Version 5.3 features minor functionality changes.
