About the Connecteam Shift Scheduling app

An employee shift scheduling app allows you to easily create, manage, and share shift schedules with your employees.

Shift scheduling software allows you to input data, such as your employees’ qualifications and availability, view schedules according to your shifts or employees, and assign shifts to your team using multiple timesaving capabilities. This further allows you to eliminate costly scheduling errors and ensure your shifts are always fully staffed.

A good shift scheduling app lets you communicate directly with your employees regarding each shift. Look for features such as shift description where you can add information such as tasks to complete, and an in-app chat so that you and your team can directly message one another if questions arise.
