Features

Communication Tools

MakeShift’s online employee schedule software ensures managers and employees are all working with the same information. The online scheduling software and mobile app automatically update scheduled shifts, availability and other information in real time. Plus, you can set custom notifications so you’ll know as soon as anything changes. With MakeShift you can quickly sync work schedules with Apple, Google and other calendars, or share it with family members.

If administrators need to quickly send a note to their staff, they can send an Announcement, instantly alerting the staff they need to get in touch with.

Time & Attendance

MakeShift goes beyond typical staff scheduling software—it’s a complete HR software solution for managing your staff. Employees can clock in and out from their phones (or a dedicated on-site device), generating accurate timesheets automatically. MakeShift also supports payroll data export to Excel, and several popular payroll providers.

Administrators can require their employees to take a photo when clocking in and out for their shifts, preventing buddy punching. Employees can clock out for their breaks, ensuring that managers are always in the loop of who is on the floor and working, and to accurately track hours worked for payroll purposes

Additionally, by assigning a geofence to a Department or Job Site, employees can only clock in for a shift when they are within the geofence bounds.

Simple & Intuitive Employee Scheduling

Create a more effective employee schedule for your company, using accurate and relevant information including projected budgets, employee availability and an optimal schedule template. Our online employee scheduling software is the fastest and easiest way to make sure you have the right people in the right place at the right time.

For managers on the move, our MakeShift Live mobile application for iOS and Android allows for real-time updates on who is working, who is late, etc. Administrators can send out an available shift from the, enter kiosk mode so employees can clock in and out from a tablet, or approve/decline shift exchanges and time off requests.

Advanced Available Shift Callouts

MakeShift allows companies to fill shifts faster with its advanced callout features, notifying employees in real-time when a shift is available to pick up. Administrators can determine how many employees are required for all available shifts, and are notified when they are about to over-schedule.

To ensure the best person for the job is working, requirements can be set for an available shift, such as skills and positions, only notifying employees who meet all requirements. Administrators can assign the shift to employees based on who is most senior, who is available or most qualified.

Additionally, employees without a smart phone can receive notifications for available shifts by SMS, phone calls or email, ensuring equal opportunity for work.
