Employee Scheduling

Easy & Great Value

Employee scheduling used to be tedious, now it's fun! Best of all, the basics of scheduling are available to you at a very low cost with our Starter plan.

Multiple locations & areas

Whether you are a single site or franchise owner, you can run multiple locations of your business within one account! Structure your business with different areas, roles or activities.


Accurately cost your full schedules before you publish. Never go over budget. Sync your employee's pay rates straight from your payroll software.

Sales & Weather

Take the guess-work out of employee scheduling! Integrate POS data and live weather feed to identify peaks and troughs of sales/foot traffic and create your schedule accordingly.

Fatigue & Overtime Management

Maximum of 8 hours per day? 40 hours per week? Part timer with 29 hour limit? Don't worry - we've got you covered.

Replace & Swap

Employee cancels a shift or you need immediate help? Never do the ring around again. Offer open shifts to either selected employees or your entire workforce with one tap. You can even allow your employees to swap shifts.


Need to track your trained and qualified employees? Whether it's first aid, food preparation or heavy machinery, allocate employees according to their skills and qualifications.

Manage time off

A happy workplace comes with clear communication. Employees can self manage their leave and availability that once approved automatically syncs with scheduling.


With Deputy's publish function you can print the schedule, share via email, SMS and Push notification into Deputy Mobile app. Employees can even sync their schedule with calendar systems like Google, Outlook, iCloud etc. Optionally, you can enforce confirmation on published shifts.

Questions about Scheduling?

  • How is the schedule cost estimation calculated?

    Within Deputy, you can do full customization of overtime and special conditions with selected cloud payroll products. Or else you can simply set Weekday, Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday pay rates for each employee. You can even import the rates in one click!

  • I want the same schedule as last week. How can I achieve this without painstakingly rebuilding it from scratch?

    You can copy this week's schedule to next week in its entirety. Deputy will even let you know if there were any problems.

  • Does Deputy's scheduling take into account an employee's leave and preferred working hours?

    Of course! Any employees with approved leave will be unable to be scheduled. Any employees who have stated they are unavailable will not be recommended for shifts at those times although you can still schedule them if you need to.
