Sling is a free communication and shift scheduling software. Built around four features - shifts, tasks, messages and newsfeed, - it allows you to organize all aspects of work on a single platform.

With Sling you can create employees’ work schedules, assign tasks, send messages to groups or individuals, and share information with your employees on the internal newsfeed. So instead of using multiple platforms, you will be using just one tool and keeping everything in one place.

Sling reduces the time it takes to create and manage schedules and helps to bring teams together, keep everyone informed and build better company culture.

Sling is available on the web and through the apps making work accessible anywhere.

Main features:

- Shifts: set up shift schedules, manage time off and shift trade requests and handle unexpected changes without stress.
- Messages: send messages and chat with employees, share photos, videos, and links with coworkers – either in groups or individually.
- Tasks: create and assign tasks and get notified when they are completed. Remind employees about upcoming deadlines.
- Newsfeed: post and distribute information to your company’s feed for all employees to see.

This app requires a user account created through the Sling website.

Lacks Calendar integration


This app is quite nice overall and I really wanted to like it. It seemed like it would be a great fit as Scheduling things is pretty easy. It has a nice user interface and is functional. However the inability to integrate your schedule with an external calendar makes this app useless to a worker. If you are a user/employee who is scheduling things ad-hoc and picking up different shifts, not being able to add it to your actual calendar is a dealbreaker. A worker needs to be able to schedule work and then put it their calendar. This is the most basic of an employee’s user story, it’s a shame this key feature has been ignored by the app builders. Once this feature is created, I would upgrade this to a 4 Star app. Without it, it’s a marginally useful 2 Star app.

Leave request update

Christmas Light!

Would love a function/ update to include options to choose “accruals” or type of leave-when requesting time off. This will enable management to type which type(s) of leaves are being used. Additionally, reports can be ran with this and the employees can keep updated what their accruals are in their bank. If they have 5 hours of vacation, and the employee try’s to take a 8 hour vacation, Sling will prompt a conflict or error alerting management. Also, I highly recommend enhancing the work chat or messaging feature. It would be nice to make it function more like an IM rather than a email.

Perfect for small businesses


Our small, family owned business has gone from a paper schedule to this app for our 35 employees. It’s easy and user friendly. As a manager I would just like to see who the original shift belonged to after it was swapped or picked up. That way if someone forgot about picking a shift up, it can be traced by that person, possibly adding the date it was swapped or picked up as well. That way a staff member doesn’t think the manager messed up scheduling and they did in fact agree to picking up a shift. These type of schedule changes require a manager approval anyway. Thanks so much!
