Downloadable Excel Schedule Template
Free Excel Schedule Template
If you're looking for a simple employee schedule template to print your restaurant's weekly schedule, we've got your answer right here. In collaboration with the folks over at Fast Casual, we've put together this downloadable Excel schedule that will help you get your employee scheduling woes behind you.
This downloadable schedule is very basic, but it does have all of the basic information for a weekly schedule laid out clearly for each day of an entire week. The weekly schedule is already set up to automatically count and total up the daily and weekly hours of your restaurant employees. If you are a restaurant owner and struggling with keeping track of your employees' hours, shift times, and generally scrambling to fill shifts, this downloadable employee schedule template might just save you some time and stress
How to use the free excel employee schedule template
The first step is to head on over to Fast Casual and follow the instructions to download the free excel template. Once you've got the free template downloaded and loaded up, you'll see a blank schedule all formatted in a Sunday to Saturday weekly schedule.
In the first row is where you'll input your employee names. So start by filling that out.
Next up in the following columns, just simply enter their start and ending shift times for each day of the week. As you start filling out the work schedule for your employees, you'll notice the daily hours and weekly hour totals are automatically calculated and filled in. This can help make sure you're not over or under-scheduling your employees and help keep your labor costs down!
Once you've got the work schedule all filled out, it's time to save (important!) and print it out in all its glory! One time to help save paper and keep everything on the same page is to find an option somewhere in the Print dialog box that says Scale - set that to fit on a single page. Also, make sure the orientation is set to Landscape. With those two options checked, hit print and post up your final schedule for your employees to see.
