Tutorial :Employee Scheduling Software? Web/Browser Based [closed]



Question:

Just wondering if any of you guys know of any web-based/browser-based employee scheduling software/tools?

Currently doing it all in Excel, but it just isnt intelligent enough... any product suggestions?

Needs to handle multiple employees time over weeks and months... to schedule in work short-term and long-term, allow me to see possible resourcing issues etc etc.

Its an easy question answer when you work only on projects, but at my agency we work on projects and day-to-day retainer type things that can come in at any time and are usually of the "drop everything and do this now" type.

If it were just projects, then any one of the online Project Management tools (GoPlan, Copper Project, MS Project) would suffice (but definately not Basecamp, I find this ok for very small projects and small teams, but anything larger and I think it falls down completely as a PM tool)

The only thing that came close to doing all that I wanted was Workschedule - http://www.workschedule.net/

Its browser based, low-cost and has a zillion options that really allowed me to plan resource levels for the agency. The only downside is it looks pretty awful, but I soon got over this.

Clarification: Must be general purpose i.e. not just for one industry

I love WSS (Windows Sharepoint Services). It's free and installs on W2K3 or W2K8 Server. Very easy to use out of the box. And easily customizable. With Intelligantt you can publish your MS Project files there as well. Then by plugging in Microsoft Office Sharepoint Designer you can built some custom workflows.

And of course the favorite integration with Microsoft Office Outlook is always a plus. You can export your calendars and task lists.
