    Pros
    This has been a terrific product for us using it over 10 years and it was easy to transition a new manager to oversee the product.
    I love being able to see colleagues pending/approved PTO so I can ensure that I'm not asking for time off that overlaps someone on the team so we can have proper coverage. It's also very easy to use.
    Best for Absence Management which help to manage leaves on phone.
    Cons
    Once you've added or deleted time for a user you can't delete it, so that got frustrating, as I wanted to start with everything correct in one entry, instead of seeing my corrections to my mistakes.
    Before implementing Actiplans for leave management we had a cumbersome paper driven system that was time consuming for everyone. Even for a team of 10 people.
    Limit of the users, since the price is not cheap, the limit of users are not convenient for me, unless i have to pay more to buy the user slots.

    Great App for Paid Time Off

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Free software that accurately tracks time off and coordinates time off for employees.

    Pros

    I have a very east time to request time off and also approve time off. It's clear to see who else is requesting time off at the same time. There are easy features for different kind of time off, which I don't use, as we just offer a bulk paid time off. Also, it's free for my small team, which is wonderful.

    Cons

    The software is a little tricky to set up. I had to create and delete users a few times to get everything correct. Once you've added or deleted time for a user you can't delete it, so that got frustrating, as I wanted to start with everything correct in one entry, instead of seeing my corrections to my mistakes.

    The best decision I ever made was to decide to try this product!

    Reviewed 7 months ago
    Pros

    With over 200 employees in six different locations throughout the state, this HR department of one would have never been able to keep up with the PTO leave requests without this product. The leave request process is easy and very accessible to the employee, their manager, and to the administrators. The employees can see their own PTO time usage and availability which greatly reduces the call to HR. The reports are extremely useful, especially for payroll purposes. And my favorite feature is that this product keeps up with the employee's anniversary and rollover dates automatically. I don't have to manually reset it or monitor it after the employee's initial set up!

    Cons

    I wish the program included additional fields for each user that only administrators could see. It would be great if I could add job titles or departments to help with identifying the users for payroll. It would also be helpful to be able to add notes or comments for the users as well that could be useful to both payroll and HR departments.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your kind words on actiPLANS, we really appreciate that! As for the additional fields, we have passed your request to our product department.

    Robust, reliable and effective system

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Speeds up our leave management administration. Fast and full visibility for all team of their PTO allowances.

    Pros

    actiPLANS is simple to use and has allowed us to manage our team's leave management effectively. The ability for all users to quickly see remaining PTO and request leave at anytime is a real boon. Before actiPLANS, we used a spreadsheet which required manually updating by a member of our team., this has now freed up that time for them to work on more important tasks.

    Cons

    Some of our team members work a 9/80 working schedule. I wish actiPlans could accommodate this type of working. At present actiPLANS only allows working on the basis of a fixed amount of hours per working day.
