Employee scheduling software

by shivet April 10, 2014

Optimising employee scheduling


Employee time management scheduling includes various tasks from managing working time or time off to more specific data such as the number of hours spent by a customer, or assigning an employee to a worksite. Whether you need to manage an agenda for some of your human resources or for several services, it's important to get a clear overview of your business activity and individual workloads.

With PlanningPME you can get very detailed information that will help anticipate busy times or improve reactivity after last minute changes on a project or on an ongoing task. Moreover, planning networking allows you to notify planning changes to coworkers thanks to e-mailing or notifications.

Main features of our scheduling software include:

- Planning views: depending on your needs, you can display daily, weekly or monthly views of your planning

- Ressource availability: you want to assign a task to an employee? If the chosen ressource is not available at the chosen date, a message is displayed to help you avoid conflicts in planning

- Service management: manage the various services of your company (sales department, administrative service, technical department...) by defining access rights specific to each user or service (read only or provide changes to the planning)


Check our dedicated webpage to discover more functionalities of our employee scheduling software.

Licences management under Citrix or Terminal Server

by cdeschamps November 26, 2013

PlanningPME is working on a Citrix or Terminal Server environment

How does the licensing work?

One licence = one user

The number of servers can not be higher than the number of licences.

Installation and registration of the servers

Once the installation completed, launch PlanningPME Server. You will need to register each server with the same procedure described below:

Go to the menu File -> Identification and enter your login and password.

Then, go to File -> Registration via Internet.

You will then have a message telling you that the licence is registered.

How do I register my users?

Each user must be registered. To register, the user just needs to accept the conditions of the licence contract when opening PlanningPME the first time:


If the user does not accept, the window will close and he will not be allowed to use the application. If the user accepts, his name will then be added on the list you can see from File -> Users management.

At the top of this window, you can check the number of licences you are allowed to use and the number of users already registered (In this example, 2/150).

User removal

If a user does not need his licence anymore, select the user that will not need to use PlanningPME, right clic and select “Delete”. You will need to be connected as a Admin on your Citrix or Terminal Server session to be allowed to remove a user.

Be careful, you will be authorized to delete only one licence at one time.

To delete the user, once confirmed by Target Skills, you will just need to go to the menu File -> Users management.

Once this step done, when a new user connects to PlanningPME, he will be asked to accept the conditions of use. 

Switch licences from Client version to Server version

Note that PlanningPME Server and PlanningPME desktop version are 2 different products. So, if you need to switch licences from one version to the other, you will need to purchase new licences.

Contact us

For any additional request, you can contact our support.
