Ever been through the pain of staff scheduling, either employees or volunteers? Then there are the phone calls if someone calls in sick or wants to trade shifts with another staffer. Ugh. In this podcast, Glen takes a look at When I Work, a service that simplifies scheduling and saves you time and headaches.
Kimba treats us to Rocketium, a video creation and editing tool well-fitted to use on social media. As a bonus, she also dives into Yala, a bot for use on Slack and other platforms.
When I Work
Simple setup: create a location, add employees, create shifts and assign employees to the shifts.
Great onboarding: Lots of videos and emails to walk you through getting started. There are also demos and webinars available. Good support.
Shift Acknowledgement – provides you with confirmation your employees have looked at their schedules.
Time clock – use a tablet, their computer at their desk, or their smartphone (paired with GPS) to clock-in and out.
Positions/skills – to make sure you assign the right person to the task.
Work chat – group chat to make it easier to answer questions like, “who can fill in for Mary tomorrow?”
Timesheets – optional to allow employees to fill in their timesheets.
Can be used as scheduling only, timekeeping only, or both combined.
Integrates with ADP, Quickbooks, Square, Vend and a few others.
Free for up to 75 employees (scheduling only) with Shift Acknowledgement, Schedule Annotations, and Team Messaging.
Starter: $9/month for up to 5 employees (scheduling or timekeeping. $16.92/month for both). Takes away annotations and acknowledgments, but adds a Month View and long-term scheduling.
Basic: $19/month for up to 10 employees ($35.72/month for both).
Premium: $29/month up to 20 employees ($54.52/month for both). Has all the features available.
Video app that is quick and easy. Perfect for a quick social media video. 30-second video with captions, logo, themes, HD, music. They are still shaking out the bugs. A little slow at times.
