This article gives you that understanding, and it also shows examples of both system and tool.

Staff scheduling system includes all the features of tool and it also has additional functionality that makes it more suitable for scheduling projects and processes:

  • Multiple-user access
  • Share information about tasks and schedules and set user permissions
  • Keep information in a centralized database
  • Create spreadsheets and perform calculations by using formulas
  • Export information to external application formats, such as Excel sheets or HTML files
