We've been customers for a number of years now, and everything is working great. Employees love it because it keeps track of everything and management is pleased to not have to jump through hoops for correct HR data. A major upgrade for our company.
This product is so flexible for both a small and large business, its afforded my small company the ability to have a big powerful software system, for a fraction of the price, and manage some of the most important HR needs within our small company. Its very easy to use and gives lots of options for any kind of business.
There was very little to no training on how to use the software or any guidance on upgrades, and we werent able to find videos on youtube or anything, so we had to feel our way around until we figured things out, but it was pretty easy to do so. We wished there had been some video tutorials on how to set everything up from the start.
Thank you for your kind review!
We are delighted to hear how happy both Management and Employees are.

Appogee Leave has made it easier to track the number of employees who are out on any given day and allows us to plan for the days ahead to best service our clients. We have the option to reject requests from our employees if our staffing needs are not met on the days that they request. Appogee Leave automatically sends them both the Approvals and Rejections immediately, saving us the time it would take to send emails to our staff.
We use Appoggee Leave every day within our department. Every day we have someone is out on vacation or calls in sick. Appogee Leave automatically updates their PTO balances and provides Managers and Employees an easy-to-use and understand snapshot of their PTO records. It helps our employees maximize their earned time off without leaving any PTOs unused. It also allows us to see at a glance who is out on any given day, which helps us allocate our resources to better service our clients.
At the moment Appogee Leave does NOT talk to our Outlook 365 calendar, like it did when we had been using Google calendars. Whenever an employee requested time off, Appogee would update our shared Google calendars with a "Pending" status and then, once approved, would change the status to "Approved". However, now that we moved to Outlook 365, Appogee does not automatically update our calendars any longer. The net effect is that we have to manually input the days off in our shared Outlook 365 calendars, which is time consuming and since it is done manually, is subject to mistakes or omissions.
Thanks for your review. Great to hear the system is used every day and your employees are finding it easy to use. Unfortunately, there is a limitation with the API provided by Microsoft so we are unable to connect to Team/Shared calendars within your Outlook account. If Microsoft make this feature available for us to implement, we will of course add it to our offering!

It's fine, it's not an amazing experience but it does the job.
Simple interface. Good value for money Integration with G Suite
Though the time specification period has much improved, it doesn't work so well with editing existing entries. Takes a long time for any new features to be put in.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.
We are pleased to see that you have found us simple to use and great value. We always welcome feature suggestions from our customers and have regular product meetings to define and change product road maps where required.

Works, is far better than our paper system and has reduced the overall overheads throughout the year. However, is fiddly to get to work in the way we work (booking days rather than hours off) and do basic things like cancel bank holidays, or prebook holidays on behalf of staff). It took us about 16 hours of senior and admin time in January just to sort out the 2019 year carryovers and bank holidays for a company just below 50 people.
Integration with office login/calendar Quite simple to use in general. Has been reliable. Different staff groups.
It works in hours not days, so we spend far too much time fiddling adjustments to avoid someone having e.g. 0.7623 days holiday carry over. Holiday (for us) is only be booked in days or half days. It gets even more complicated for part-time workers. Bank holidays - too rigid - people cannot cancel a bank holiday if they need to work it. So we don't use the bank holidays features. No bulk upload of holidays. We prebook certain holidays for all staff (Christmas week and bank holidays). We have to do all of this by hand.
Thank you for stopping by to leave feedback for Appogee Leave.
Pleased that the integration has been beneficial to you and your staff have found it simple to use!
We would be happy to arrange a session to cover off some of your concerns. We calculate in both hours/days so should be able to advise here and we can ensure you have carryover set up to run automatically next year so this does not need to be a manual process.
