What is Planday?

Planday is a business tool designed to streamline attendance tracking across companies of all sizes. The platform is easy to use and packed with smart features to facilitate seamless workforce management. 

It is one of the most popular employee scheduling platforms and for a good reason. It allows shift-based businesses of all sizes to manage their employees in a single location. 

Users can track working hours, attendance, schedules, and also manage payroll off all employees using Planday.

Planday Key Features

  • Staff Management

If you have teams at different locations or at separate sections (front of the house or back of the house), you can use the Planday Department tool to create separate schedules. 

Every team member can define their availability and also apply for leaves. Users can also manage all types of employee absences such as training days, sick leaves, and more. 

If your company has a policy in place for overtime, the tool allows you to set up a compliance warning if an employee is working overtime. 

  • Scheduling

You can minimize the number of hours you spend on making a schedule by automating a lot of your core processes. You can get a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly view of your schedule. You can also track the number of hours scheduled for each employee and the salary they are paid for those hours. 

Based on your employee skills, demand patterns, and other factors, the platform also creates a smart schedule. 

  • Communication

Communicate with team members to stay on the same page while working on a task. Connect with the right people at the right time to ensure there is no confusion while collaborating on a particular task. 

You can either text your employees individually or create a group to avoid unnecessary back and forth communication. You can keep your employees updated with the latest developments when they punch in to ensure they are on top of time-critical tasks. 

  • Punch Clock

The employee Punch Clock application allows your employees to punch in and out via any device. Managers and team leaders can define location-specific clock-in rules to ensure your employees are actually at work. 

Once an employee punches in or out, you can approve the final hours. Once the hours are approved, you can export that data to your payroll management service.

  • Reporting

The reporting feature provides a bird’ eyes view of all the key metrics such as shift timings, employee schedules, hours, and more. Get a clear picture of employee working hours, scheduled vacation, and overtime schedule. 

These reports also allow you to view your weekly revenue and compare them to salary costs.
