We are all about

Shiftwork Squirrel is a new App designed to put all your shiftwork related information at your fingertips.

Why an App

Shiftworkers have for years been struggling with knowing what days they will be working in the coming weeks, and months. The app takes away the need to write your roster on paper, make a photocopy or even take a photo of it off the crib wall and carry it around.

Shiftwork Squirrel gathers your roster information together and allows you to manage your shiftwork life:

  • Create your roster patterns and load direct to your iphone calendar
  • Identify any clashes with appointments and social activities
  • Track shift swaps and overtime
  • Use Sleepy Squirrel to track sleep and alertness
  • The Squirrel Index will adapt to your sleep needs, and suggest sleep tips to improve how you feel at different points in your roster cycle
  • Work out your sleep equilibrium, and compare yourself with others

What it does

Need to know what shift you will be working on a particular weekend in 6 months time?  With Shiftwork Squirrel you can create your repeating roster pattern with just a few steps. By loading your roster straight into the App, Squirrel will load it not only to its own calendar BUT ALSO to your iPhone calendar. This calender allows you to plan ahead by knowing what roster you are working on your partners birthday, grand final day, or Easter weekend.

The app also gives you the ability to add extra shifts or overtime, delete a shift if you do a shift swap, or record a shift as personal or annual leave, without affecting your roster pattern.

Only working this roster for 6 months, no problem, you can also set an end date and load your next roster from the day it starts.  Load an extra roster for your family members, co-worker, or even your teams training schedule or university classes. It's all there in your calendar to check what's happening.

  Sleepy Squirrel

With Sleepy Squirrel you're able to enter your sleep hours and choose a Squirrel rating to record how you feel. Squirrel will collate all your information, track and present the information in a simple graphical format and suggest how much extra sleep you require to feel on top of your game.

As you add data, the Squirrel Index will calculate your sleep equilibrium so that you can plan ahead and manage your lifestyle. Compare yourself with others by uploading your results to our website.
