Free Employee Scheduling Software Solutions

Companies install employee scheduling software to forecast their labor costs and increase their productivity. They can plan the timetables of their staff for days and weeks ahead.

Functionality of Bitrix24

Bitrix24 scheduling software for employees features the following functions:
  1. Calendars
  2. An event scheduler
  3. Integration with CRM
  4. An absence chart
  5. Meeting and briefings

To start, pause or finish their working day, your employees can use the in-built online clock of Bitrix24.

When creating a calendar, you can decide who has the right to add events to it and who can only view its contents without editing.

It might be challenging to juggle multiple calendars simultaneously. In this case, you should subscribe to those that are the most important for you. See all their events in a single grid view.
Also, you can follow the schedules of workgroups and individual users. This will help you to coordinate the activities of multiple staff members or entire departments.

Sometimes, you might need to reserve a specific block of time to disclose the exact nature of the appointment. In this case, you should create a private event.
Thanks to the event scheduler, you will be able to plan and manage public events with an unlimited number of guests. Traditionally, the trickiest part of it would be to find a time slot that suits everyone.

You and your colleagues would be bouncing emails back and forth, which is counterproductive. Bitrix24 will save your nerves and will considerably facilitate the planning process.

When scheduling repeating events, you can assign any desired interval for them. They can take place weekly, biweekly, monthly or as often as you wish.
As soon as someone adds an event to the Bitrix24 CRM, it will be imported to the employee scheduling software. Your staff will never miss a customer meeting or a follow-up call. The system enables its users to set up reminders.

Bitrix24 will come in handy when some of your employees are absent. Its absence chart is a composite calendar where you can find exhaustive information on all types of leaves: sick, on vacation, on the road and so on. See who is absent right now and who is just planning to take a leave and has already received approval for it.

The end-to-end meeting planner of Bitrix24 deserves special praise. There, you can schedule your meetings and briefings, manage invitations and responses as well as outline the main points of each event. Moreover, you can assign these points as tasks from the main meeting interface. The system enables you to log minutes and save the results of each meeting. If a certain topic remains unfinished, you can roll it over to the next meeting. Such an approach guarantees maximum transparency and eliminates the risks of accidentally forgetting something important.

Collaboration Tools

It is not enough to have shift scheduling software. Staff members should be able to discuss their planned events, express their opinions and offer alternatives. Bitrix24 contains the following collaboration tools.

  • Intranet
  • Chats
  • Document management
  • Videoconferencing
  • Knowledge base

Set up a feed where you will share news, updates and announcements. Other participants will be able to react to your posts, like them and use appreciation badges.

The system offers group and private chats and allows users to share files. Plus, you can create engaging polls to get to know your staff's opinions on any subject.

In addition to standard chats and voice calls, you will be able to hold HD video calls and conferences. Up to 24 participants can take part in a conference. There are no time limits for all these types of communication. You can set an opportune background and record your conversation.

The knowledge base will help newbies to get to know your company better and get used to your workflow. You can create comprehensive and well-structured articles on your meeting procedures and other relevant aspects of your work. You can customize access permissions to this content. Your employees will be able to find necessary articles through the smart search.

All these functions make scheduling easier and more efficient.
