What are the benefits of using this template?
- Excel export and import:
Export this template to Excel with just one click. When you're ready to improve your excel schedule template, you can import it easily and turn it into a beautiful board in just a few steps.
- Viewing permissions:
By inviting your staff to view the board with “read-only” privileges, you give everyone access to the schedule 24/7 without the worry that staff may make alterations without your knowledge.
Want to see which shifts a specific employee has been allocated? A simple search of the employee’s name will give you all of the information you need.
Have to find out quickly who was on duty during a specific time period? Easy. Either search all of the data or filter out everything except your desired time and date.
- Customize labels:
Change the “employee #” labels to reflect the roles you need to be filled. This makes it easy to see, at a glance, that you have every staff position covered. You can also set the time periods on each day to reflect your particular needs and then see which roles are filled at which times.
