“I’m looking for a simple work schedule template. Do you have one that I can download?”

Excel spreadsheets can be used to create and print employee work schedules for small companies with only a few employees and shifts. If this is your situation, we offer a Weekly Employee Shift Schedule template that can be downloaded and used for free with Excel 2007.

With this scheduling template, you can create a weekly work schedule for up to 20 employees, 9 shifts, and print the resulting shift schedule for distribution. The work schedule template resembles a scheduling white board with employee names down the left, dates across the top, color coded cells representing assigned shifts. You define the employee names and hourly rates in the Employees worksheet, and input the shifts and shift durations in the Shifts worksheet. To assign a shift to an employee, simply click on the corresponding schedule cell and pick a shift from the drop-down list. Work hours and labor costs are automatically computed based on shift assignments and labor rates.

While the Weekly Employee Shift Schedule Template is easy to use, it is only capable of scheduling employees one week at a time. As a spreadsheet template, it is limited by what Excel can do. If your scheduling needs are more than just creating a weekly work schedule, you should use our Snap Schedule Employee Scheduling Software.
