    Pros
    Easy to set up, easy to use, great support whenever we needed help - AttendanceBot was a total pleasure for us to use.
    Attendancebot's effective integration with Slack has made it a great tool for our company. They were also _extremely_ responsive when we've asked for a small change in how information is presented.
    Easy to use, very nice integration into Slack, and the notifications to channel are great.
    Cons
    I was having trouble editing an employee's time who forgot to clock out.
    We've migrated to a full HRM system that now handles that, the duplicity was no longer functional and expensive to keep in both time and funds.
    For example, I had to go page by page in the leave balance section to see at what specific date I had how much balance. The balance and changes made in the balance were not exporting.

    Your friendly smart punch card

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    AMAZING Few companie have such a good feedback loop, every time we asked for a new feature the team would just try to make sure it was what we needed. I think they are always moving adding features that make users happy!

    Pros

    We needed some way to keep track of the time that we were spending in each project, we are a small studio and creating our own software to handle time was out of scope, we were using slack free, and we had so many limitations. When we learned about attendance bot I fell in love, it would allow our team to keep track of hours. rates and even measure how much time we were putting into the project!

    Cons

    The fact that we had to pay haha JK I think the thing we like the least is that sometimes there might be bugs with the punches, meaning I have to fix them manually

    Great App!!

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Overall it was simple to implements, I got good support from customer service on some of the questions I had and they help me set up some of my default settings

    Pros

    The attendancebot app enables me to manage the various needs of all employees through a simple, user-friendly that can be managed from anywhere. I am able to easily access weather i'm in the office or on the go. It takes away the need for manual calculating and tracking!

    Cons

    Although you can customize the types of leaves (Flex / Vacation) You are not able to differentiate how they are calculated / tracked. IE. I wish I could have 'Flex' time that is calculated and tracked by the hour, but 'Vacation' days calculated and tracked by days.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for your feedback, Jeremey.

    Attendancebot saves me a whole of time checking the weekly attendance of my Virtual Assistants

    Reviewed 21 days ago

    In the past I have been doing manual calculations of the log-in/out times of my employees its super time-consuming. At the same time, it puts my employees accountable in showing up to work on time and on schedule.

    Pros

    AttendanceBot has helped me a huge amount of time in checking the attendance of my virtual assistants at the end of the week. While other business uses google sheet to monitor time-in and time-out of their employees, AttendanceBot gives you the freedom to have them punch in and punch out through slack with their detailed log-in/out times. It gives any business the assurance of accurately representing...

    Cons

    So far has been working really well! I think if there's one thing that needs to improve its having the feature of assigning an "automatic-logout" for employees in different shifts (currently you can assign an automatic logout time for ALL employees but in my case since I have employees working at different shifts of the day it would be best if we can incorporate that feature as well).

    The features of AttendanceBot are improving.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    It tracks employee hours.

    Pros

    Easy for the team to clock in and out on their phones or desktop and to track vacation/sick time and requests.

    Cons

    Often times it takes several attempts to make updates to punches and to run reports. We created a slack channel for AttendanceBot per the instructions but it never worked so we've been using the app channel. I don't understand how on some features you need to use military time but other features you don't would be nice to have consistent formatting for date/time throughout the app.

    Easy to use, people management tool

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Very positive, we're happy with it as a solution for vacation/attendance management

    Pros

    AttendanceBot integrates really well with Slack, making it super easy to use for leave management + punching in and out each day. It's reduced the admin burden we used to have (previously all leave requests were done manually via Word docs). Plus, the helpdesk team is very responsive whenever we've encountered bugs or problems.

    Cons

    Using it for team timesheets isn't something we do yet, as when folk forget to log in, adding manual time entries isn't as easy to do as it is in tools like Avaza. So the timesheet functionality/logging could be improved.
