Drag and Drop Rota Scheduling or Rostering
Imagine if scheduling your care staff was as simple as clicking on an appointment and dragging it to an available carer…
Imagine being able to see at a glance which members of staff are free…
Imagine being able to tell visually where appointments could be better organised in your roster…
With CarePlanner, all of this and more is possible.
We offer the smoothest, most intuitive drag-and-drop rostering software (or e-rostering) available, where assigning calls requires just the click of a mouse.
Groups and Runs
Behind the ease-of-use of our staff scheduling rota, there’s a lot of clever checking going on. For instance, every time you drag and drop an appointment, the system will automatically check:
- Whether all the assigned care workers have the correct skills
- Whether their DBS checks or manual handling certificates are valid
- Whether they have exceeded their maximum hours for the week
If a certain service user doesn’t like the member of staff you’re trying to assign them on the roster, the system will let you know. And if you happen to drag the appointment to a time when the care worker isn’t available, you’ll get a warning message.
As with all features in CarePlanner, e-rostering is a hugely powerful tool that’s really simple to use.
Care Worker Recommendations
Sometimes, particularly in larger agencies, you may not know off the top of your head who the best care worker is to schedule for an appointment. In these situations, simply clicking the ‘recommended carer’ button will ask the system to suggest the best members of home care staff for the call, based on:
- Care continuity
It’s up to you to make the final decision, and the assign the carer to the roster with a single click.

“We constantly have new referrals, whilst other patients pass away or need to increase their number of visits at very short notice. Frankly, I don’t know how we’d cope without CarePlanner “
