New scheduling tool

Just wondering if anyone's store has started using the new scheduling tool? Has it been better or worse than manager's doing the scheduling? Is it good for flexible schedules or limited availability? We have a couple employees(myself included) who only work 1 or 2 days a week, does it allow us to keep our original availability?

Re: Dayforce
Dayforce seems put to put everyone in every department they are trained for very randomly, i.e. I have shifts at Cashwrap, CS, Digital and Kids, where previously I would very rarely get shifts other than cashwrap. Also, it schedules based on last years performance daily, so sometimes we may have 3 people at CW when it is dead since last year we had a bookfair or just a high influx of people. Only problem the shifts are very random shifts, I.e. 6:15 to 11 pm at Cashwrap with break coverage from 7pm to 7:45pm. Not to mention you have to request shifts at least a month in advaced.

Re: Dayforce
Any program with FORCE in the title should be suspect: Of course it's Canadian -- remember, they didn't have slavery or indentured servitude to sully their image.
This is a glimpse of the future. Better watch out!
