Ratings and Reviews
An abundance of notifications 😂
This app is wonderful for the most part. I love how frequently they update it to fix bugs, and how available they are to answer questions. The only thing that get really irritating is some of their updates make the app notify you up to 4 times that your shift is about to start. Sometimes they aren’t even helpful notifications, like a 1 minute warning?! Seriously?!? Can we make it an option to toggle those notifications to 1 hr or 30 min or both? After 30 minutes, nobody cares anymore! Lol 😂 I can’t get to work with a 1 minute warning, and I’m pretty sure I was aware of my shift starting from the other 3 notifications!
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.
Fast & easy
I love this app. I have been using it for about nine months and has really made the process of scheduling my team so much easier.
The ability to repeat shifts, create positions, locations, and see accumulated hours for each week make scheduling fast and simple. The level of personalization to fit the needs of the business is fantastic.
I only have two hang ups: (1) there is not a simple way to block all schedules for an office closure/holiday. (2) weekends can’t be “hidden” on the web version.
That aside, I cannot say enough about how much this has transformed the way I schedule!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
