A web-based scheduling system with a graphical user interface was created at Texas A&M University in the department of Computing & Information Services which allowed student workers to request when they wanted to work, when they were willing to work, and when they were unable to work.

Benefits for the lab supervisors include immediate email notification of schedule changes from trading of hours, an up-to-date daily schedule showing where potential problems may occur, and when to expect students to arrive at work.

With student worker input this process of evolution has become a team effort.
