Features are great when you need them, but if you’re not using some of the features but have to work around them, your scheduling software may be more trouble than it’s worth. This is a common complaint with many of the scheduling software options on the market today. Other common complaints include being complicated, difficult to set up, and tedious to implement.

Look for a scheduling software solution that can be configured to your needs now and can also change and adapt to meet the needs you’ll have in the future.

With so many options available, how do you know you’re selecting the right one to fit your needs? Let’s answer some of the questions you may or may not even know you have.

Customizable to Fit Your Needs

Your staff scheduling software should allow you the ability to turn on the features you want, but also the ability to turn off the ones you don’t need. With staff scheduling software by Schedule360, you can add or drop features at any time based on your preferences and scheduling needs.
