To all our loyal Users, Supporters and Partners,

I wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you for all your support this year.

We hope you’re enjoying using our MyShiftPlanner app and it’s been helpful in organising your work and home lives this year.

There’s been enough mention of Covid this year, so I won’t spend long talking about it other than to acknowledge that it’s been an unusual year for most of us and the shift working / temporary working sectors have been impacted more than most.

A Challenging 2020

MyShiftPlanner hasn’t been immune to the effects of this year’s events either, but I’m really proud of our team who, despite difficult times, put special effort into making sure we were available throughout to provide the best quality support to you, whenever you needed us.

Our support desk and developers have worked especially hard this year and are looking forward to some well-deserved rest over the Christmas period.

We also hope you’ve seen and enjoyed our free little Christmas gift to you – My Christmas Buddy (the mobile app for Android and iOS).

After a challenging year, we decided to create something small, fun and useful to help with those Christmas shopping chores – just a little something fun to end the year with. If you haven’t already tried it, try downloading it from the App Store or Play Store.

Exciting Plans for 2021

The year has almost ended but we’re really excited about 2021 and what we have planned for you. We have an adventurous roadmap of features, improvements and new products which we hope you really love.

The biggest of which is the MyShiftPlanner revamp project. MyShiftPlanner is now 6 years old and through its success has grown really quickly into the great product it is today.

As a birthday present to MyShiftPlanner, and to you, we’re going to revamp it ready for Spring.

Major Update to MyShiftPlanner

What does this mean for our loyal MyShiftPlanner users?

I don’t want to spoil the surprise right now, so my lips are sealed!

But as it’s Christmas, here are a few tasters of what we’re focusing on…

  • A more modern, faster, slicker experience for all phones – but without changing the things you love about the app
  • Better support for the latest phones and their features
  • A specially designed version for tablets and desktop computers
  • Easier setup and new options for adding even the most complex of rotas
  • New work time, leave and pay reporting
  • Exciting new features we’ll tell you about soon…
  • Exclusive early access to all of this for our loyal users

For those using MyShiftPlanner in their teams, we also have something very special planned for next year which we hope you love. But we’ll announce more about that early next year…
