How Scheduling Helps Supervisors

Ensure Coverage by Role or Location

Rather than scheduling at the individual employee level, use role-based scheduling and location-based scheduling to ensure you have the coverage you need.

Don’t Stress About Qualifications

The system checks skills and certifications (including expirations) when assessing the employees shown as available to work based on role—so you don’t have to.

Minimize Unplanned Costs

Based on your unique historical punch data, Paylocity can surface estimated hours required for future workdays to help ensure appropriate coverage. Real-time alerts help avoid the extra costs of overtime.

Set schedules and capacity needs and empower your employees to claim open shifts or even swap shifts with peers if their plans change.
