    QuickSchedule

    QuickSchedule is shooting for simplicity and usefulness. It is simple and the features are quick and easy for a reason. It does only a few things, but it does those few things very well. QuickSchedule is used to make weekly employee schedules for small business owners or managers who dont have a lot of time. Alternatively, employees can make out the schedule for themselves and send it to management and each other.

    These are the things my app does:

    • Add employees with only first and last name, and optional email address if you want to send a copy of the schedule to them.
    • Add and fully configure daily shifts. You can set the shift name, start time and end time.
    • Remove shifts or employees by swiping to delete.
    • Set the first day of the week.
    • Each employees scheduled hours are totaled up in real time as they are assigned to shifts.
    • 1 button tap to send entire schedule out to every employee. The email has a scheduled hour summary for each employee. The email is formatted in text only to be compatible with the most email clients and computer/phone platforms.
    • After shifts and employees are in the app the way you want them, assigning them is done by simply tapping the shift, then tapping the employee you want to assign to that shift.
    • Rinse and repeat.



    There are scheduling apps that do a whole lot more, and also have desktop application counterparts. These full-featured applications also take a while to learn to use and set up. QuickSchedule is down to earth. I made it for my wife, who manages a convenience store, after asking myself why she doesnt use a big scheduling software package.
    The answer is she doesnt have the time to take out of her busy schedule to learn a new software package. She doesnt want to have to create an account with yet another web service and have to remember another password. She doesnt want to submit 10 pieces of information about each employee just to make out a schedule. She just doesnt want the hassle. So I made her something that would take the place of her piece of notebook paper on a clipboard she was using and would actually make her life easier and more productive.

    Above all, no personal information is collected and used anywhere but inside the app. It uses email addresses only to send out the schedule. The email is sent by your device's own email application.

    Feel free to reply to this post with any questions. I am subscribed and will be notified immediately. I will answer every concern as fast as possible.

    Thank you,
    Darrell

    Thank you. I hate to ask, but could you rate it in the App Store? I need a couple more ratings for it to start showing up. If you don't have time, I understand.

    Thanks again

    Has anyone had any trouble with the app crashing? I have 1 customer that is having a problem that I suspect is a Date & Time or Regional setting on his phone. I know some of you have bought it and I want to make sure nobody has had any problems.

    If you don't mind responding, I really would appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Darrell

    Started playing with it tonight. Is there a way to take someone off a shift? I tried and wound up deleting him all together.

    Yeah, on the main schedule page, swipe left, and it gives the "Unassign" option. Also, you can just assign someone else to that shift and it unassigns the first and replaces with the second and updates the total hours for both.
