There are several places on the Internet to download free work scheduling software, such as CNET's download portal and Kappix.com. Some software begins as a free download and trial, but requires purchase to use the full version or to keep the software.
Scheduling software on CNET's download portal includes Work Schedule 2013, Easy Schedule Maker and Visual Staff Scheduler Pro, in addition to other office software such as TaskMerlin and Apache OpenOffice. Kappix, a producer of scheduling software, offers several versions of its software online, in both shareware and premium versions. The Kappix free edition is downloadable without a purchase requirement, but does not include some of the premium features included with the paid software.
