How to Make It Work?

It takes merely four easy steps to create accurate event schedules, share them with colleagues and analyze your time allocation results with actiPLANS. Here’s how it goes:

1. Create custom corporate events and assign unique color codes to them

2. Allocate your events to employees and set dates for them

The Work Scheduling interface represents a visual timeline with the list of users whose data you have access to. And by simply clicking on the necessary date on this timeline, you can schedule any corporate event for a colleague of choice and specify how many hours it is supposed to take per day:

3. Switch on automatic notifications

actiPLANS has built-in automation to streamline a variety of processes in your team, and communication on recent schedule updates is one of them.

4. See how much time is spent on corporate events

The Work Types report shows how many employee hours are used on different types of work. So, it can provide you with a detailed picture of all the time invested in corporate events. And you are free to choose how to group and present this info in the report — by individual employees, by departments and any preferable periods of time.

Conclusion
