Spreadsheet Schedule Import/Export — Sability

Keywords: Workforce Management

In many organizations, spreadsheets are an integral part of managing employee schedules. Even companies with advanced Workforce Management systems like Workbrain rely heavily on time-tested, supervisor approved, spreadsheet management tools. Unfortunately, most companies rely on supervisors to manually input these schedules into their WFM system. The Sability Spreadsheet Schedule Import/Export app for Workbrain automates this process.


The Spreadsheet Schedule app is fully integrated with Workbrain security.  Security Groups are used to grant users access and the Workbrain Team Hierarchy continues to restrict which employees a user can modify.  As a result, the solution can be configured and deployed in a matter of hours.Export Schedules for Printing

Export too!

To complete the end-to-end user experience, the Spreadsheet Schedule app also delivers a Schedule Export feature.  Similar to the Import functions, a configurable template defines a company's desired format of the output.

The schedule export is useful for ongoing edits to the employee schedules as well as making it easy to format and print schedules for posting on break-room walls or employee bulletin boards.

Configurable Spreadsheet Templates

No two companies use the same spreadsheet format for tracking and posting employee schedules.  The Spreadsheet Schedule app allows for the configuration of an unlimited number of spreadsheet templates.  Through a simple XML definition, administrators can define the location of schedule fields by their row and column coordinates.
