Schedulehead gives you the ability to schedule your shifts an infinite amount of time into the future.
This way, you can be sure that all of your shifts are fully staffed months ahead and this is the recommended way to use the app.
By scheduling far ahead in the future, it enables Schedulehead to reward your best workers by giving them the ability to see and sign up for shifts further in advance.
A worker with these kinds of reviews, who had been with your company for a full year, would have the opportunity to see and sign up for shifts months into the future.
On the contrary, a newer worker with the same skillsets but poor reviews, would only be able to see a few weeks.
If you choose to schedule only one month in advance:
- Schedulehead has less options to show workers.
- It is less likely to be able to fill all of your available shifts with the perfect mix of staff.
- You will be more likely to have to manually intervene.
