Why 7shifts is better than what you’re using now

Easy to use, so convenient. Love getting notified when my schedules get published, being able to see who I work with, and how easy it is to drop/pick up shifts.

I wish more employers would use this app. I've never had it be this easy to request time off, change availability, or look at who I'm working with. The interface of getting a shift covered or covering a shift is also very good.

“7shifts made it easy for me to make weekly schedules in half the time as my previous platform. It makes it easy to see requests off and shift swaps. Lastly, it allows me to budget our hours in order to schedule heavy on busier days.”
