HotSchedules is the industry's leading employee scheduling app because it’s the fastest and easiest way to manage your schedule and communicate with your team.

Team members love it because they can swap, pick-up or release shifts with one click. Work-life balance is easily managed with automatic shift pick ups when you want more hours, and time off requests for when you don’t. Calendar sync and notifications keep your Schedules and the roster automatically updated to your phone with any manager-approved changes.

Managers appreciate the 75% time savings when building schedules and one-click approvals for shift changes. The ability to monitor business performance with sales and labor snapshots from anywhere, keeps them out of the back office. And most importantly, staying connected with broadcast and one-to-one messaging makes for a happy and productive team culture.

NOTE: The HotSchedules application REQUIRES a valid HotSchedules user account through your employer.

What's New

Version 4.77.0

- Leonardo DaVinci took 4 years to paint that woman. We went through this whole interface refresh recently, but decided the color and fonts in the menu needed another update, so basically, we're on the same level as DaVinci.
- Various bug fixes and improvements
- Thought of the week - Give a man a plane ticket, and he will fly for a day. Push a man out of a plane, and he will fly for the rest of his life.

Good app - I have suggestions

i<3glee :)

Easy to use app, makes life so much easier to have your schedule and manipulate it easily. Three suggestions (requests to the developers actually):

1) allow people to create an auto pick-up from the "my schedule" page. It would be a LOT easier to create these when you can see the holes in your schedule (maybe even on the schedule page put "auto pick up set" for the shifts you're hoping to get?)
2) allow notifications for when a shift gets released that you're not already scheduled for.
3) when you're on the "my schedule" page and click on a specific shift, it shows you who is working that shift and who isn't (brilliant) BUT, from there, allow the option to send a message to ONLY the people working that shift (like - hey anyone want tonight off?) AND be able to send a message to ONLY the people not working that shift (ie. hey can someone work for me tonight) instead of having to go to the messages center, select individual people or blast everyone on the whole team.

Thank you!

Mail feature needs work


Seems like I never get notifications from the app itself. When my employer emails me, I get a notification from Gmail but not one from the HotSchedules app. I’ve gone into the settings for HotSchedules just to realize that every thing is activated to notify me, yet still it is not doing that.

The little red bubble you see on most apps, that tells you how many emails you have waiting for before you even open up the app, doesn’t seem to exist on this app. It would be nice if they can make it have the same standard set of features that most other email applications out there have.

Lastly, even after the app is open, the little envelope icon doesn’t indicate any difference at all. So an email could be waiting for you and you would never notice it. That icon should also have a number next to it letting you know how many new emails you have.

Hope The team at HotSchedules finds this feedback useful,


Great app for work BUT


I love this app! It’s easy to use and convenient. BUT to make it better, you should be able to combine schedules from different jobs. Or see both. I work for 2 companies that use this and it is so time consuming and annoying to have one schedule only on my browser, and one schedule in the app! Should make a way to view more than one schedule in the app!! Would make it so much easier and better.
