Download and install HotSchedules on your Laptop or Desktop computer

If you want to install and use the HotSchedules app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type HotSchedules in the search bar and press Search. Click on HotSchedulesapplication icon. A window of HotSchedules on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use HotSchedules for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • crappy app that could be great

    by Dns2k
    token and password issues EVERY update. plus the location is always messed up (you should make it with option to set location) so we can set a location for calendar sync. {and speaking of sync every time app is foreground it resyncs pushing calendar entries} Edit{} well now I'm not getting my calendar spammed but my password again occasionally doesn't verify at all through app unless i re download it fresh. This isnt a typing issue I'm using a saved password entry. This compounded an issue where this past Saturday a scheduled shift did not sync to my calendar at all. The email notification had it and online website had it but the calendar sync omitted Saturday but not Friday not Sunday. Look I paid for this app like everyone else but it LACKS the Website’s BASIC pickup shift features, but its ability to sync was its saving grace but you guys have now made it to where i cannot trust that it has synced. Further to complicate things was i was unable to login to the app to even verify the error. How the heck does one data point get omitted.
  • Your schedule is in safe hands

    by Augurybot
    As a user why can i not login to see my schedule? Oh, right, because hotschedules did yet ANOTHER nonsense update, and without downloading the update you cant login. What is so critically important that this app has to be updated twice a month or more? It’s like mission impossible, only “your schedule, if you choose to accept it, is...(every normal day)... this schedule will self destruct in 10 days (when we update the app for no apparent reason) ...” What could possibly be so critically important and secure about my stupid work schedule that it needs to update so often???? Thus losing my login data each time, thus making me download a new version (needing wifi) and requiring me re-verify my identity and password each time I use it? It’s annoying. It’s just giving me access to my dumb work schedule and not anything important like my bank account or a government secret agency mission impossible whatever geez
  • I wish I didn’t have to have the app.

    by Jess Brill
    I will admit I was originally disappointed and turned off by HotSchedules because this platform is predominately used for scheduling within the service industry and therefore hourly wages employees. The company is paying a licensing fee to use the platform and I, the hourly wage employee, still have to pay to download the app?!! It feels icky. Of course you’re going to charge the lowest tiered group to use your services because they have to use your services when you should just price your platform costs appropriately. My disappointment was compounded because getting logged into the app is a NIGHTMARE. Horrible experience. I reset my password yesterday and still can’t get into the app and am resorting to my desktop. I’ve tried multiple times. If I’m paying to have this app, I’d expect it to be the best app on my phone and its just not. Also, this is the only app on my phone I’ve paid to download. Once you can get logged in, the app is convenient and handy. Easy to navigate and the layout makes sense. Not tons of lag or anything either. Please fix your login issues and let your finance/accounts team know you’re pricing structure isn’t a good look.
  • A Manager’s Perspective

    by JrmyHghs
    Despite the constant token and password word issues with every update, only half the reason why I gave two stars, I really like this app. It makes it super easy to leave notes for my fellow managers, to send messages to my employees via the app or to contact them by phone or text. The other reason I gave only two stars is this: There is no way for me to write my schedule on the app. The only way I can do that is to sit down at a computer and use the HS website. Being a manager sometimes I do not have the time to sit at a computer down to write my schedule. How great would it be if I didn’t have to be tethered to a desktop or have to lug my laptop around with me? It’d be awesome! I could do a little bit here, a little there. This would free me up to be able to do the schedule anywhere since I always have my phone.
  • the new revamp is awful

    by degrootttt
    it’s so confusing to put in a new availability: what happened to lunch/dinner shifts? Now I have to include time specific on-times? What if I can work lunch starting after 11:00a, and dinner by needing to be on by 5:00p? How do I input that? 11-5 as my availability? no, because now I’m only being scheduled between those hours and not getting approved to pickup shifts outside of that time frame. Go back to how it used to be, I never knew anyone complaining about your app or system. And its horrible trying to request time off, the old version was so much simpler and so much easier to look at. Now you can’t edit individual days with in your request, you either have to delete the WHOLE request and pray that it gets approved again, or pray that someone will release a shift on the day you can work again. It’s so restrictive and complicated. When it comes to work schedules, we want simple and flexible. What are you guys doing with hotschedules?! If this wasn’t a necessary app for my job, I would delete this new-version revamped atrocity of a system. and that makes me bummed because I was practically your biggest fan back in the day, with the green color scheme. :/
  • I wish it worked half as well as it’s supposed to

    by Alice2255
    For an app that is heavily relied on for work, and is paid for, I’d expect it work better. Every time I open the app I have to re-login because my token is bad, so I don’t get messages from my manager because I’m not “logged in”. When you do log in, you have to wait a couple minutes for it to load the first screen or sometimes it will just be a blank screen with a loading circle. It’s super delayed when you try to switch over to anything. And when your trying to send out a message, it will seem like you sent it and then you’ll find out that it never actually sent. I’ve used this app for at least 5 years, and I feel like no major improvements have been made since I first downloaded it.
  • Good app - I have suggestions

    by i<3glee :)
    Easy to use app, makes life so much easier to have your schedule and manipulate it easily. Three suggestions (requests to the developers actually): 1) allow people to create an auto pick-up from the "my schedule" page. It would be a LOT easier to create these when you can see the holes in your schedule (maybe even on the schedule page put "auto pick up set" for the shifts you're hoping to get?) 2) allow notifications for when a shift gets released that you're not already scheduled for. 3) when you're on the "my schedule" page and click on a specific shift, it shows you who is working that shift and who isn't (brilliant) BUT, from there, allow the option to send a message to ONLY the people working that shift (like - hey anyone want tonight off?) AND be able to send a message to ONLY the people not working that shift (ie. hey can someone work for me tonight) instead of having to go to the messages center, select individual people or blast everyone on the whole team. Thank you!
  • Logout bug and notification spam

    by cantplayheerthstone
    Besides the obvious downfall of this being a decent application, why in the hell are you spamming me to rate my shift? You’re implementing rate my app bs into a scheduling application? Please for all things holy, stop adding stupid nonsense to this already decent app. I can post logs of my job with sales reports, post a schedule, make approvals...that parts great. Now you harass me to rate my shift and I’m forced to turn notifications off because it won’t stop. Every 5 minutes, even if I click it. Sometimes it’s every 30 seconds! Are you kidding me?! Now I’ll check approvals on my own instead of being notified since you make me waste my time on nonsense. Already in the process of convincing my employers of phasing you out due to these stupid features and consistent problems that you bestow upon yourself.
  • Hate it

    by 16284927
    I absolutely hate this app. Unfortunately I have to use it because my job requires me to. But it ALWAYS logs me out, it crashes every time I’m using it, takes forever to load. Honestly if there was an option to opt out of using this horrible thing I would. Developers really need to step it up. I never write reviews but this app drove me to do it, and I’ve been using this so called app for 5 years already, and it has gotten worse with every update they put out. Why does it have to log me out EVERY SINGLE TIME I leave the app? I really wish my job would switch to something different. I’m sorry for the new users that have to download this for work, just be prepared to live with unnecessary aggravations HotSchedules will give you. It’s not even worth the price, this is really disappointing and it’s just horrible.
  • This app is great

    by just some guy on iTunes
    The reviewers who cavil about minutiae are probably unrealistic; what do you expect for $3? It’s a brilliant app, and well worth its price. I can see who isn’t working (to swap shifts), negotiate all sorts of deals, message w/o having a phone number, and managers can approve shifts IMMEDIATELY. I used to manage schedules new-old school with Excel. While HS’s features are still clunky, they’re an improvement in design and speed. I would hope at some point that HS would work in an algorithm to automate staff shift rotations, but with all these features, and for its current price, this app is well worth its value.
