ZePlanner FAQs

Frequently asked questions about ZePlanner – Staff Scheduling software:

  • IconWhy is ZePlanner useful?

    You can employ ZePlanner – Staff Scheduling Software practically in any sphere of a company where information has to be collected, edited and distributed. For instance, you can record external orders in the customer service, which will be supplemented with internal requests and finally organised by the group leader.

    Each employee will automatically receive detailed information about the time and specifics of an order in several ways.

    By now, ZePlanner has established itself in various areas, such as trade industry, chemical laboratories and car workshops (client references).


  • IconCan I customise ZePlanner according to my requirements?

    ZePlanner – Staff Scheduling Software offers a high degree of customisation, from the configuration of employees and users to the manifold user settings (colours, fonts, performance,…).

    You can also freely adapt the print-out via a simple HTML editor according to your preferences. This results in a smooth integration of the print-out style into pre-existing layouts and forms.

    With its open interface ZePlanner Sync, ZePlanner can be easily incorporated into existing ERP-systems and integrate their data.


  • IconWhat to do after the installation

    We recommend the following steps after installating ZePlanner – Staff Scheduling Software:

    1.) Enter employee data
    ZePlanner includes one default entry for employees in the distributed version. You can edit this entry according to your preferences and add further employees. Choose labour times and group affiliations. It is recommended to set the standard labour times for your company first so that you can simply copy them for each employee.

    2.) Enter company data (licensed version only)
    Data entered here will be used in order print-outs.

    3.) Create more users
    Create new users of the desired type.

    4.) Adjust settings
    Adjust the settings according to your personal preferences (colours, fonts, font size, …)

    5.) Enter orders
    Enter your first orders. You can move them into the timetable via drag&drop immediately.

    6.) Monitor planning with the order costing
    The integrated order costing allows you to monitor your orders live from the start.

    You can find more information and directions in the quickstart tutorial.


  • IconWhat is the difference between the trial version and the licensed one?

    The trial version offers the full functionality of a licensed version. The only difference is in the length of the utilisable period – for instance, you can only select days between the installation date and thirty days after in the timetable.

    Furthermore, the number of employees, orders and entries in the timetable is limited.

    The aim of the trial version is to provide you with an opportunity to evaluate ZePlanner – Staff Scheduling Software completely. After the end of the test phase, you can simply order an upgrade and continue working the data you have already entered.
