New improvements to Rentman’s Crew Scheduling product


Improvement 1: Accurately schedule crew 3x faster using click-to-plan

Plan your crew to a specific job faster and more accurately with click-to-plan - a stress-free way to shorten your planning workflow and get the insights you need to schedule the right crew members to your functions.

How it works:

  1. Choose a function
  2. Select one or more crew members (or freelancers)
  3. View the crew member’s availability for the function by hovering over their name in the Availability timeline
  4. Plan the crew member in seconds by clicking on the highlighted section in the Availability timeline.

 Want to plan a crew member to multiple functions at once?

Don’t worry - you can select more than one function and assign it to crew members. You’ll get an automatic notification of their availabilities even when you plan them for multiple functions.



Improvement 2: Take full control of your planning processes with the improved crew scheduling overview

Love being on top of your planning workflow? Do it with Rentman. 😎

Stay in control of your crew scheduling processes with the latest color scheme we’ve added to your crew planner - created to make it easy to visualize important crew planning activities.

Use this color scheme to seamlessly distinguish between draft and definitive planning of crew members - that way, you can keep crew planning mistakes at a minimum.
