Sling is an employee shift scheduling system which can be integrated easily with the PaxFlow application. Once integrated, the employee shift schedules created in Sling are automatically shown in PaxFlow. At the same time, any new shifts created using PaxFlow are also seen in the Sling.

Supported features:

  • Manage departure shifts (create, delete, assign)

  • Read and create Pickup and drop-off assistance shifts

  • Read office and field shifts from Sling

  • In Resource Manager only available staff members are displayed in drop-down menus

  • Additional Dashboards can be created for field shifts, office shifts and unassigned shifts

  • The Enroute application displays the next shifts for a logged in user in 'My week' and who is currently working in the office


  • Free Sling subscription

How to set up Sling to use it with PaxFlow

Create 'Locations' for pickup assistance, drop-off assistance, each departure, each office area and each field area.

Create 'Positions' for the three main roles Driver, Driverguide, Guide. Any additional Positions which are not mapped to these roles will be recognized as "other".

Create 'Groups' in case you want to filter who is permitted to be assigned as Driver or Driverguide for certain vehicle types.

To do the initial setup, go to the Integrations section in PaxFlow Settings and select Sling.
