Busy Bunny Parts

Busy Bunny has two main players:

  1. Managers
  2. Employees


This is you. When you download Busy Bunny Manager app and register, you are the administrator for your store and the employees. As the manager, you can now add employees to your store and immediately start to schedule your employees.

  You can manage multiple stores and employee across all your stores.


Employees are the crew members that work for your store and those that you'd like to schedule and time-keep through Busy Bunny. Setting up employees is very easy once you've set up your Manager account. To find out more on how to add employees, please refer to instructions on Add Employees.

  We highly recommend that once you have employees setup, they are invited to download the Employee App that allows them to see their schedule and get notifications directly from you.  To see how, please refer to instructions on Inviting Employees.

The thing that ties Manager and Employees together is the Store.

Store (or "Site")

Site refers to the physical location you are managing.  Remember, there is no limit to the number of sites you can have in your network, or "company". 

If you have only one store, you do not need to add or create one when you register your account.  All you have to do is go into the store details to modify the name and to any additional details you wish to add.  

If you have more than one store,  you can create additional sites within your company and then add employees that work in the 1st, 2nd or both locations, and so on.

  To find out more on how to manage your site(s), please refer to our Site Management help document.


This is the main part of the solution.

Once you have the Site and Employees setup, you can start creating and sending schedules right away. 

You will have the ability to:

  • Calculate pay, including the options to account for breaks and over-time*
  • Send schedules and request employee acceptance of them*
  • Have employees clock in and out, and specify grace periods*
  • Get notification when an employee goes on break and starts/ends a shift*
  • Enable shift swaps to minimize coverage disruptions*
