Used occasionally for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
I like the size of these calender's and the dry erase ability. These calenders are great for all our guys out on the projects.

Cons
The least thing I like is the cost of the calenders. They can be pretty expensive!! Especially when we are purchasing 10-12.

Much better than the cards

Used daily for 6-12 months

Overall I'm very pleased with the attendance calendar. It has helped me keep track more efficiently than in the past. It's very easy to print out someone's calendar and share with a supervisor or the employee. No more keeping notebooks filled with the attendance sheets.

Pros
It eliminates the need for the cards and is set up exactly like the cards.So it was familiar to start. Easy to add and remove days off and add notes if needed on each date.

Cons
It would be helpful if there were a calendar that shows a full month with all people scheduled off that updates as you add each individual day off. It takes a long time to load and switch from employee to employee. It would also be helpful if you could block out say a week at a time instead of having to enter each day separately when someone is scheduling vacation time.

Better than paper!

It saves me time and paper using this version, rather than the paper calendar.

Pros
We have been using the paper attendance calendars from HR Direct for a few years now. I received an ad for the online app version and thought I would give it a try since the price for the paper calendars is pretty much the same. It's easy to enter the employee information and enter the time off information. Each employee calendar can be downloaded and/or printed for the employee. It saves paper and makes updating and reviewing attendance with employees a little more convenient. It is also much faster to pull up a calendar on the screen than having to go through a binder with lots of other calendars in it.

Cons
There are only two categories for time off, vacation and sick time or PTO. We have vacation, sick and personal time. You also have to make the deductions of days off yourself. It doesn't deduct them automatically as you enter the time that's taken by the employee. So, you have to be mindful that you are deducting as you go along. There is a component to this app that is supposed to be launched later for employees to send you their time off requests. when they can just send me an email. I would use it if it came with the calendar app, but for another fee, it's a little too much, especially for a smaller office.

The attendance calendar has helped to automate a totally paper based system and makes it easier to provide detailed information to my employees with the click of a mouse. Overall I have had a good experience with this software. It does from time to time get bogged down and is slow to boot, but overall it is a great reasonably priced product for small business to use.

Pros
I like that it is portable and I can access it from anywhere.

Cons
That it will not invoice you, but rather requires a credit card on file in order to continue the service.

Pros
The neatness of the software makes it easy to present to superiors. The attendance sheet is also a great addition to the mix.

Cons
Its a little slow, but I'm almost sure its not the software.
