What is ScheduleAnywhere?
ScheduleAnywhere is an online employee scheduling software that allows employers to manage employee schedules from any device with Internet access. It is designed to save time and simplify the employee scheduling process.
Signing up for ScheduleAnywhere is easy. The simple pricing structure starts at $25 per month after a 30 day FREE trial, and is based on number of employees managed. There are no contracts, hidden fees, additional software to buy, or set up fees.
Signing Up for ScheduleAnywhere
When signing up for schedule anywhere, you are directed to a simple form, and must enter your company information into the following fields in order to trigger a confirmation email with ScheduleAnywhere login credentials:
· First Name
· Last Name
· Job Title
· Industry (drop down menu)

· Questions/Comments (optional)
Once you’ve entered the information, click “SUBMIT” and you will be directed to a welcome screen thanking you for requesting a FREE TRIAL. The screen informs you that you will receive your login credentials for your free trial account.
The welcome email states your username and password will be emailed as soon as the account is ready. There is an option to call their customer service line and set up your account access immediately. The email will also give you information on the pricing structure and gives a link for requesting a price quote.
Your first ScheduleAnywhere login
Your first ScheduleAnywhere login should be as simple as entering the username and password provided to you once you receive the email confirmation that your account has been set up by the ScheduleAnywhere team.
Because there is a 7 step process to follow before becoming fully functional in ScheduleAnywhere, the initial screen you see after login will not be what you would normally see when logging in to the system. You must follow through the process to be fully set up in the system. That process includes the following set up steps:
This is the location where your company operates. You can have only one location, or there could be several locations. Since each location will have a separate schedule, it is important to set these up first.
You will then set up departments, which are a sub category of each location. Example: the sales department will have a different schedule than the marketing department.
3. Employee positions
This allows for set up of different employee roles and will allow for ease in grouping of employees.
This sets up employees and assigns them to roles
5. Explanations of shift details
This defines shift parameters, roles of employees, defines vacation/sick leave, etc.
6. Create schedules
This can be as complicated or simple as you like. You will set up schedules that pertain to your business needs.
7. Start scheduling
According to ScheduleAnywhere, the hard work is done and you are ready to begin scheduling!
After the initial login, you will simply enter your username and password each time, there won’t be additional steps and you will be directed to your dashboard upon login.
What to do if you forget your login information
Forgetting your password is never fun, but there is a fairly simple process for password retrieval. Simply click the forgot your password link found on the ScheduleAnywhere login page. You will then enter your email address on file and a new password will be emailed to you.
