MyWorkHours.com provides you with the tools to get the job done quickly
and easily. The extensive list of features below will help you see why

|Enhanced Web Interface
| MyWorkHours.com provides an easy to use yet powerful application
interface. Unlike the majority of web based systems, MyWorkHours.com

after every action taken by the user. This minimizes the time you
spend waiting for the pages to show up. It also makes the pages
significantly more responsive. Click through the pages within
your account and see for yourself.|| |
|Easy to Learn & Use
| MyWorkHours.com provides a significant number of scheduling and management tools
but not at the cost of added complexity. Unlike other online applications
that build a system to handle a few features and then add new features
without improving the original design, MyWorkHours.com, after analyzing
usage patterns and test users, has redesigned the entire system
three times making it easier to use than it has ever been.
This means you can enjoy additional features without the complexity.|| |

means that whether your organization is large or small you will
have the freedom and flexibility to organize your schedules just

departments or are spread over a wide geographical area will
find the flexibility useful in improving the efficiency and
productivity of schedule management.|| |

jobs or shifts as they need, when they need it.

and deleting shifts easy. The right-click menu allows you to

and apply them week after week, making only minor changes as needed.
Different coverage requirements can be setup for every day of the week.
The Build Schedule feature on the schedule applies the
coverage template to the specified week making weekly
schedule creation quick and easy.|| |
| Shift rotations allow you to pre-assign shifts using a flexible
rotating pattern. You could, for example, assign someone to work the
same shift every Monday, or every other Monday, or every three days
if you want. You could even have someone work a specific number of
days and then have a specific number of days off.
Shift rotations are flexible and can be used to meet the needs of your organization.|| |
|Auto Build Schedule

based on the shift coverage requirements and the shift rotations
specified. This feature makes building weekly schedules quick and
easy. Any shifts left unassigned are clearly marked and can be
assigned using the Auto Assign feature.|| |
|Auto Assign Shifts
| The auto assign feature makes optimal shift assignments for an
entire week with just one click. This feature not only saves
valuable time it helps managers to create reasonable, unbiased schedules.
To match people with unassigned shifts this feature automatically
considers employee availability, employee skills, requested time off,
ideal number of hours per week, maximum allowed hours per week and day,
and maximum allowed days per week.|| |

shifts. These interactive tools are easy to learn and use, and allow

|Auto Conflict Detection
| The schedule automatically detects and displays conflicts such as
when a person is assigned overlapping shifts, jobs they are not qualified for,
work during their time off, or more than their maximum allowed daily or weekly hours.

for quick resolution. This feature saves time and helps to keep
managers from making scheduling oversights. It also helps managers
to be confident that the schedules they create are realistic and feasible.|| |

schedule you are looking for. The responsive interface lets you
quickly switch from week to week. You can jump ahead several weeks
or months just as easily.|| |
| The schedule can be viewed in a number of formats. The first is
a traditional view showing each person's name and total number of
hours they have been assigned followed by the shifts they have been
assigned for the week. The schedule can also be organized
by Job and by Shift Type. These useful formats allow you to see
how the transition between employees will occur for each shift
throughout the day or week.|| |

hosting features of your account are fully integrated with the
scheduling tools. Once a week's schedule is how it should be, just

which jobs a person can do, what hours the person is available
to work (for every day of the week), the maximum hours per day and week they
are allowed to work, the maximum days per week
they are allowed to work, and their ideal number of hours to work
per week.|| |
|Time Off Requests
| The systematic approach used to keep track of time off helps to
ensure that time off requests, no matter how far in advance they
are made, are not lost or forgotten. Employees submit time off requests
using their sign in accounts and then managers can easily
approve or deny the requests. Allowing people to submit requests
at their own convenience can avoid unnecessary scheduling hassels.
Time off is even displayed on the
managers view of the schedule. If anyone is scheduled to work
during their time off this conflict is clearly indicated on the schedule.|| |
|Shift Trade Board
| If an employee cannot work an assigned shift
the employee can post the shift to the trade board. The trade
board allows other people to take or trade for the posted shift.
Employees can even check the status of the shifts they have posted
to the trade board. Giving employees tools and increased
control over their schedule helps to boost employee job satisfaction.|| |

requires no manager intervention. All shifts posted to the trade
board are verified by the system to be reasonable and doable.

the trade board, if needed. Managers can even trade shifts for employees.|| |

be printed from the Reports page.|| |

be managed by the system. You can even create customized accruals.

| Daily & Weekly Overtime, and Holiday pay time codes are automatically
detected and indicated by the system for those who qualify for special pay.
You can even create customized time codes for employees to use on
their timesheets.|| |
| Announcements are a useful way to inform people of scheduling issues,
upcoming events, policy changes, etc. Since announcements are posted
