On-Call Scheduling

Protect your company's support coverage while protecting your workers' support burden.

Coverage Calendar

Ensure team members have your company's back when problems arise. Identify on-call gaps, assignments, and escalations all in one place.

  • Intuitive Interface
    Easily move a shift to a new date or adjust its duration just like the calendaring tools you're used to
  • Adapt to Changing Needs
    Add or remove shift members or adjust escalation times directly from the calendar
  • Ensure Coverage
    Visually spot empty shifts and coverage gaps to ensure that shifts cover all available times (and if you find a gap, easily turn it into a new shift)

Temporary Absences

Manage exceptions for vacations, holidays, and sick days to keep shifts covered when people are away.

  • Vacation
    Configure temporary replacements in advance of vacations so teammates replacing you only receive your notifications for those specific dates
  • Group and Access Flexibility
    Assign replacements for only specific groups when you need to stay connected. Empower team members and managers to self-select replacements.
