Download the Planday mobile app

Make sure to download and install the Planday app on your phone before starting. Planday app is available for free on most Android and Apple mobile devices.


Change your app settings or set up shifts to sync with your personal calendar

Syncing your Planday shifts with your iCal or Google Calendar will allow you to integrate your work shifts into your everyday calendar, giving you a full overview of all your important engagements from one place.

How to check your upcoming Shifts

Check your upcoming shifts, including:

  • what Department you are going to be working in

  • what you are going to be doing at work

  • and who you will be working with!

How to check and bid on Open shifts

Usually, Open shifts are shifts that you can request if you want to do some extra hours. See what shifts are available and send a request to your manager, straight from the app.

Check your Messages

You can also send messages through Planday, to your managers and colleagues. Use the app to keep up to date with your messages and requests!

Read the latest announcements from your team or manager

Keep up to date with company news and bulletins, shared through Planday.

Posts on the News Feed will remain available, so you can refer back whenever you want to.

Punch in to start your shift

You can punch in for a shift once you are physically at work and punch out when you leave, all through the Planday app. Registering your times accurately allows your manager to know exactly how long you worked. Remember to leave a comment if you were late or stayed extra on a shift.

Set your Availability preference for work

Setting your availability preferences indicate to your manager when is good for you to work, or more importantly when you are unavailable to work. When your manager makes the schedule, they will be able to see your preferences and hopefully schedule you based on your wishes. Marking unavailability is not the same as leave requests. If you want to prevent being scheduled and have a guaranteed off from work, you should ask for time off instead.

See upcoming Events and indicate your attendance

Your company can invite you to Events through the Planday app, so you know what is going on and when. This can be for a work-related training event or a social activity. Make sure to check out the Event, its location and time, and let your company know if you can attend!
