Resolving shift scheduling conflicts

You can’t always prevent conflicts but you can set some action to avoid conflicts. Here are the best practices for creating shift schedules that help everyone to coexist peacefully.

1. Automated shift scheduling
247Shift is a web based scheduling system. Employees can check, manage and monitor their shift scheduling wherever they go. Web based schedules update in real time, so information is always up-to-the minute accurate. 

2. One stop consolidated view
Dashboard provides a quick overview of all shift and leave related activities. When the system detects scheduling conflicts, system will display them on the screen immediately, alerting you to resolve the conflict during the shift assignment. Staff, supervisor and manager are able to view shift schedules and outstanding tasks from a single screen.

3. Monitor staff availability
247Shift enables manager and supervisors to monitor staff availability by location and time period. Availability status is colour coded to provide for easy viewing. You are able to filter the view by location, department, designation or staff. With an overview of the schedules, you will always be in touch with your team availability.

4. Make time for scheduling/ schedule it early
When manager works on the schedule at the last minute, employees might be unable to show up on time or miss their shifts. Don’t give your employees a reason to miss their shifts or be late for work. Manage your employee shift early, so that your employee can plan their schedule and time off early.

5.Communicate immediately
When schedule changes and you need someone to fill a shift, the 247Shift Scheduling system allows you to notify your employee in real time. System will notify employees about schedule change by email.

6. Learn from Data Analytics
By reviewing the data from the analytics report, managers can check what hours of the day, days of the week, and months of the year are the busiest in the specific day, week and month. Hence, managers will be able to predict scheduling needs and staff more appropriately.

7. Compliance to staff welfare legislations.
The platform monitors for compliance to staff welfare legislations by tracking maximum working hours per shift and minimum rest periods between shifts.

With the right solution, you can resolve them all on your way to a perfect, conflict-free staff schedule
