POS solution provider Square has launched Shift Scheduling, a scheduling tool designed to work seamlessly with Square’s Team Management and Payroll offerings. The feature aims to create a consolidated labor management solution that can handle scheduling, managing and paying staff through the Square platform.
Shift Scheduling completes Square’s suite of labor management tools by adding new functionality into Team Management, which is already integrated within the Square POS to offer clock-in and clock-out capabilities, built-in timecards, permissions, and reporting and analytics for labor optimization. Shift Scheduling aims to add more functionality to the platform, including:
- Easy management: Retailers can create and publish shifts, assign work schedules by job or team member, and copy previous schedules for future weeks to avoid starting from scratch;
- Improved accuracy: Shift Scheduling can help prevent associates from clocking in early or for unscheduled shifts, and timecards will now report scheduled versus actual hours worked; and
- Better visibility: Employees using the Square Team App can view their schedules, signal their availability, request specific shifts and swap shifts with colleagues (with their employer’s approval).
