What can you use the app for?

NimbleSchedule.com is a tool intended to help businesses manage their employee schedules more efficiently. Users can work with multiple locations by assigning staff to specific branch offices or stores. The user can review labor, costs and employee information for each individual location through the NimbleSchedule dashboard. Schedules can be built based on location, department or position. NimbleSchedule is also designed to take some of the data entry work off of the person handling schedules. Employees can submit their own availability or time off requests on their own. The manager or business owner can review these and respond accordingly through NimbleSchedule. The application also supports convenient notifications that alert the user when there are staffing issues, updated schedules or newly created schedules.
