With v2.0, StaffFox introduces numerous upgrades, including new scheduling features, ease of use improvements, and performance improvements.

Fox Optimization Inc announces the v2.0 release of their StaffFox staff scheduling tool with a broad range of user-requested enhancements that further position StaffFoxTM as the smart tool for smart staff scheduling managers.

New features include intelligent Open Shifts, Accept/Decline shift capability, and helpful staff Notification enhancements. Specifically, with StaffFox v2.0, managers can not only designate a shift as open (available for pick-up by staff), but also control who can pick it up by setting filtering options such as staff availability, skillset match, and current shifts/hours relative to company limits (to avoid overtime, for example). With Accept/Decline, managers can optionally have staff accept or decline part or all of their schedule, with immediate feedback to managers. Declined shifts can easily be re-assigned either automatically using SmartFill, or on a shift-by-shift basis using StaffFox’s intelligent pre-assignment function. In addition, with any new or updated published schedule or time-off request change, staff will see notifications in their phone notifications center in almost real-time.

Ease-of-use enhancements include a new time-off summary tab to facilitate easy management of staff time off requests, the ability to publish notices of company events and holidays in the schedule, enhanced manager notification in the schedule view of any shift conflicts or other warnings, and improved control over the printing of schedules, including allowing the saving of schedules by employee for easy manual notification.

StaffFox v2.0 also benefits from a complete database upgrade, designed for performance and scalability. Users will see faster loads for schedules and dialogues, as well as even more responsive drag-and-drop and data entry and saving speeds.

With a web and mobile app for managers and staff, StaffFox is the ideal staff scheduling tool for businesses. Meeting the needs of owners and their staff members, StaffFox creates better schedules, reduces overtime, and improves staff retention and productivity.
