Hi, We’ve used WhenToWork, https://whentowork.com, for many years. They have a free trial (upper right corner of screen). It is used by other libraries, hospitals, police departments, etc.

I am looking for suggestions on scheduling software. I help schedule a team of about 30, each day 10-20 staff work. Currently we have staff enter requests onto a Google Calendar and then we populate a Google Sheet with the vacation, training, etc, and specific tasks they do each day. We build the daily schedule off a template, so are not recreating everything each week. I like that you can easily see at a glance who is doing what each hour, but am hoping to find something that can automate more of the process.
We have looked at products such as ClickUp, Sling, Shift by Microsoft Teams, When I Work, and Skedda. However, these all tend to schedule an entire shift and we are looking for something that can schedule tasks by the hours, such as reference desk, bookdrop, shelving, as well as input the data from Google Calendar.
Does a magical product like this exist?! If you have any scheduling software you enjoy I'd love to hear what you use.
