We know that prior to switching to online employee scheduling, many services and businesses relied on a spreadsheet or giant paper wall calendar and we hear on occasion that some of our users "miss" the giant wall calendar.
Andrew Blackwood, EMS Sergeant at Queen Anne's County DES EMS in Centreville, Maryland, shared with us that they use an LCD television to display monthly calendar view of the work schedule.
We love this idea and thought we'd share it if anyone was looking for some way to display the work schedule on a larger display. Most LCD TVs now come with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 which accommodate even the largest schedules.
The set up here would be to find some sort of spare computer or pick up a little nettop or a small computer to hook up to your TV. Using VGA, DVI, or HDMI (ideally), you can use your TV as a giant monitor.
If you would like to forgo a mouse and keyboard after initial setup there are a variety of other options available including several FireFox add-ons listed on this page: http://www.technotraits.com/2009/03/5-tools-that-automatically-reload-web-pages-to-check-updates/ Using tools like these, you can have your work schedule page refreshed every 30 seconds to reflect the most current schedule.
