Employee groups and departments

If you have multiple locations or separate sections of your business (like front and back of house), you can use departments to create independent schedules.

If your business relies on specialized employees, you can assign employees a skill. Then, only employees with those skills can claim a skill-specific shift. For instance, only employees you qualify as yoga instructors can claim yoga instructor shifts.

Compliance

Your business might have policies about overtime or how much time workers need between shifts. On our platform, you can set up compliance warnings so the system automatically warns you when you’ve scheduled an employee for too many hours or shifts that are too close together.

Employees can also have important documents available at their fingertips through the Planday web portal and Planday App, including their payslips and employee handbook.
