ZLC Volunteer Scheduler System

Whether you have 25 volunteers to schedule, or hundreds, we have designed this program to make the task easy. You can have this program automatically do everything, from setting up the shifts to assigning names -- for any number of services or functions -- for any range of dates. Or, you can elect to do any part of it manually: setting up an extra shift, pre-assigning a few names, changing the makeup of any shift, or changing any details at any later time.

You just set up your shift structure and your volunteers' availability, the system does all the rest.  Our system has been a leading, proven system for over fifteen years: the best true database system you can buy.  We offer you more power and flexibility, yet with complete ease of use:

Automatic scheduling of any number of volunteers and shifts.  Easy to make changes.
Rotation options set for each individual volunteer: By-Preference; By-Need; or Equal-Rotation.
Unlimited history and capacity.  Numerous report formats.
Microsoft Office and Windows-based for easier operation.
New ZLC LINK to your Volunteer Registry system.


When you use the ZLC Volunteer Scheduler, you get all of these benefits:
  • Saves Time - its all automatic.
  • Easy to use - update the availability information and preferences, enter the date range, and push one button to create the schedule.
  • Our system makes it easy to maintain a correct and fair rotation.
  • You can set a maximum per week, month, and quarter for each volunteer, for each service-type separately, and for each shift-time separately.
  • Each volunteer can be available for any number of service types and any number of shift days / times.
  • Keep-together and keep apart groups can be enforced or not -- including across service types and across weekends.
  • Both Preferences and many Maximums can be set for each individual volunteer overall, plus for each of their service types and each of their shift days / times.
  • Unlimited history of each volunteer's activity.
  • Optionally tracks demographics of assigned volunteers: gender, user-defined-category, and age-group.
  • Comprehensive - all functions together and fully integrated.
  • No limit to the number of service-types, the number of shift times, or the number of weeks you can schedule.
  • Easy to set any number of Not-Available dates and date-ranges for each volunteer.
  • Flexible - written in Microsoft ACCESS – every lookup list is user-definable.
