Why Connecteam’s employee scheduling app stands out: 

Remote access

Employees have instant access to their work schedule, 24-7, via their mobile phone. This makes it much easier for them to take on open shifts, alert you to mistakes, and can request time off or shift changes right from the app. As a result, the interaction can help to improve an employee’s morale and productivity which in turn helps to lower turnover.

Additionally, managers save a lot of time creating and finalizing shifts by almost 50-60% each week. All the ping-ping with employees is direct and instant, instead of waiting for days on end for an answer about covering a shift.

Communicate with your team

Connecteam has a built in chat so you can talk to your team while on-the-go. And vice-versa, your employees can reach out to you in the tap of a button if they have questions or concerns about a shift. By managing everything straight on the app, you create a two-way street for communication. This will help to easily improve engagement and happiness as your employees no longer need to jump through hoops just to get ahold of you.

Receive real-time status updates and notifications

If you’re using outdated methods, like pen and paper, when creating a schedule, you know how much chaos can come your way when you need to make a schedule change. However, Connecteam helps you avoid this mayhem and stress.

In just the click of a button, create and edit single, multiple, or shift schedules, or even copy last week’s schedule – it’s that easy. Whenever a change is made, the relevant employees receive a notification and have the updated schedule in the palm of their hands.

Easily add more information for every shift

While your team is out in the field, they can provide you with feedback with notes like  free text, video and image upload. All of these notes and status updates are located in a stunning timeline and is attached to each shift so that way everything is reachable, organized and documented securely on your dashboard.

Know what’s happening with instant shift status alerts

Employees can accept, reject, check-in, and complete a shift so you’re kept in the loop as to where projects and jobs stand – know if you’re on track to meet deadlines or what the status of a current project or job is.

Plus, whenever an employee sends a shift update, their GPS location is pinned so you can observe via a map view as to where your employees are and what project was just worked on.

Reduce overtime

It’s no secret that complying with labor laws is required as Department of Labor regulatory requirements and litigation spending is growing. Seyforth Shaw, LLP recently reported that workplace action settlements have reached nearly $1.75 billion, which has tripled since 2016 for wage and hour litigation.

When your employees work a 40-hour work week, you need to stay on top of overtime so you can avoid added costs and employee burnout. Connecteam’s scheduling app will instantly alert you the second an employee is close to overtime and when they go over. Additionally, our app has paid breaks built in so you don’t need to worry, especially if your state requires you to provide paid breaks.


In one place, you have access to everything your business needs to operate efficiently on a daily basis – utilize the GPS time clock app to track hours in real-time, receive absence requests and manage timesheets for payroll. Payroll is taken care of through its integration with QuickBooks Online and Gusto; it’s fast, easy, and direct. Easily add workflows to create checklists, reports and forms to help boost compliance instead of relying on outdated methods like pen and paper. Activate in-app training to help improve professional skills for all your employees and provide a creative on-boarding experience for new hires. Save time and get the most out of your workday with our easy-to-use employee app. No, really, it’s so easy to use that no training is required!
