01

Live schedule updates.

No refresh required.
We know that scheduling isn’t always a one-person job, which is why you and your team can both make updates at the same time. You'll see changes as they occur—in real time—so you're always up to date!

02

Super-powerful schedule editing.

Got a conflict? Yo, we'll solve it.
We offer the most comprehensive set of editing tools available, so when things change (as they inevitably will), we’ve got you covered. You can drag, drop, insert, replace, split, and duplicate any task with ease using our right click tools and keyboard shortcuts.

03

Rinse and repeat tasks.

Create recurring schedules with ease.
Have a weekly maintenance task or a monthly town hall to schedule? No problem. Float offers weekly and monthly repeating tasks. Need to copy a task from Rachel in Creative to Paul in Design? Done. Simply duplicate the task by holding Shift and dragging it to where it needs to go.

04

One-off weekend scheduling for those one-off occasions.

Weekend warriors-we salute you.

Float is flexible when you need it to be, even if it means working on (and not just for) the weekends. You can hide non-work days, set part-time availability, and even schedule team member holidays and one-off weekend tasks.

05

Custom sort, search and save.

Find the right person or project using our
powerful search and sorting.

A search bar appears at the top of every page in Float, allowing you to filter virtually any team or project variable—including tags, departments, and clients. You can also save your searches, align team members into a specific order, and search across every section of Float at once.

06

Keep track of the milestones that matter.

Project milestones help you keep track of upcoming key dates and phases.

Simply add them when you're creating your project, and they'll appear as colored strips at the top of the schedule—revealing more info on rollover. An easy and subtle reminder of when things need to get done!

07

Move one task. Move many tasks.

Create task dependencies using multi-select.

Since deadlines are constantly evolving, we've made it simple to make bulk schedule changes with our task multi-select and move feature. Just hold down Shift, select the tasks you'd like to move, and then drag them to their new date.

Report on the numbers.

Track team utilization using Reports, and then export the data.

Data is all the rage these days, and since it doesn't just stop at the schedule, we also offer Reports and CSV exporting. You can report on virtually anything in Float—from people and projects to departments and clients—while also keeping track of individual hours booked and overall team utilization.

09

Connect with all your favorite services.

Use our API and Zapier integration to connect to Basecamp, Asana, Trello and more!
