Reasons Teams love Float
Considering making the switch to dedicated resource scheduling software?
Here are ten reasons why the world's top brands and agencies all choose Float.
I did months of comparison before I made a decision on Float. It’s streamlined interface and ease of use made the difference.
Float is an amazing tool which has transformed the way we book in work in our organisation.

A great product that's saving us a lot of spreadsheet action.
It’s the design and ease of use that allows me to easily navigate the schedule.
I compared many options. I like the interface, it is not trying to be everything for everyone.
Float is easy to use, flexible and simple to get up and running.
I chose Float for it’s simplicity and speed.
Float is easy and fast to update, cut and change elements being scheduled.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
