Summary of new features and enhancements
  • This software version is a major release and its database structure has been upgraded to accommodate the new features and enhancements. When opening a schedule file created by previous versions of Snap Schedule 2009, you will be asked to upgrade the schedule file before it can be used. The upgrade process is done seamlessly and should take only a moment to complete.
  • New Schedule View: Added the new Daily View by Shift option to show daily staffing for shifts. Shifts are listed vertically to the left, dates across, and each cell shows employees that are assigned to the same shift on a given date. The number of days displayed can be 1, 2, 4, or 6 weeks, selectable from a drop-down menu. You can immediately see whether any shift is not being adequately staffed for a given date range.
  • Improved Task View:
    • For better visibility, the Task view now has its own place on the ribbon bar. Previously, it was an option under the Shift view.
    • In the Task view, added the capability to display task assignments for more than one shift. All shifts that meet the criteria specified on the shift filter bar will have their task assignments displayed.
    • Added a graph to the Task view to show assigned employee count throughout the day. You can configure the graph to display the total employee count for any combination of tasks.
  • Employee Skills/Certifications Expiration: Added a new capability to monitor and report expiration status of employee skills/ certifications.
    • For each employee, you can now specify when the employee’s skills/certifications will individually expire.
    • For each skill/certification, you can now define the number of days before it expires that Snap Schedule will begin issuing warning of a pending expiration.
    • The Schedule Outlook view now includes a Skill Expiration Warnings panel to show employee skills/certifications that have expired or are about to expire.
    • A new Skill/Certification Expiration List report is now available to display expiration status and the number of days until expiration for each employee’s skills/certifications.

The shift premium is added to the employee’s regular pay and may be specified as a combination of a fixed amount per shift, a fixed amount per hour worked, or an amount which is a percentage of the employee’s regular hourly rate. Shift premium can be limited to certain day of the week or to non-exempt employees. An option is also provided for including shift premiums in the employee’s overtime pay calculations.
  • On Call Pay Calculations: Added the capability to define on-call pay policy for any shift. Employees may receive on-call pay even though they do not actually work the shift. You can specify on call pay as a combination of a fixed amount per on call shift, a fixed amount per each on call hour, or an amount which is a percentage of the employee’s regular hourly rate.
  • Improved Overtime Pay Calculations: Improved employee overtime pay capability to support different work periods and overtime rate structures.
    • Added overtime calculations for work periods other than the Weekly period. Two Weeks, Four Weeks, Six Weeks, Bi-Monthly, and Monthly work periods are now supported.

    • Provided the options to include on call and/or shift premium pays in the overtime calculations. When included, the total on call and shift premium pays an employee received in a work period will be divided by the total period work hours then added to the employee’s regular hourly rate to arrive at an effective hourly rate for the purpose of overtime calculations.
    • On the Employee form, changed the Weekly Work Hours Constraints fields to Work Period Work Hours Constraints fields since a work period can now be other than a Weekly period.
    • On the Select an Employee for the Shift form, changed the grid to show Work Period Work Hours instead of Weekly Work Hours and updated data columns to reflect work hours for the applicable work period.
  • Improved Staffing Overview Graph: For the Hourly Coverage option of the Staffing Overview graph, improved the Y-axis scaling to provide a better display based on the actual maximum and minimum data values. Previously, the minimum value of the Y-axis was always set to 0.
  • Manual Resizing of rows and columns in the schedule views: For the Daily, Shift, and Task view, you can now manually resize the rows and columns of the grid to better fit the cell contents. The header column and header row can be resized independently of the content columns and content rows.
  • Generate Schedule Wizard: Added an option to the Generate Schedule wizard to skip generating shift assignments for non-working and non-visible days. When selected, you will also have the choice to skip over these days and resume the shift sequence on the following days.

The wizard will create a new schedule file then guide you through the steps to enter business information and operational settings, shift information, time off reasons, employee information, and task information as required so you can begin scheduling.
