AttendanceBot overview

What is AttendanceBot?

AttendanceBot is a vacation management, time tracking and employee scheduling solution for Slack which provides a central location from which to manage and approve staff leave requests, track attendance, billable hours and payroll, plus manage shift schedules, time off, availability, and more. As an online solution, AttendanceBot gives users the flexibility to track time on projects and apply for leave or remote work anytime, anywhere, via any internet-enabled device. Users can also set-up approvals, leave quotas and holidays according to company policy.

Time tracking technology allows users to clock in and out of work, as well as create timesheets directly within Slack. Users can also track billable hours for clients and projects, plus set-up and customize shifts and schedules for employees. Automated notifications serve to remind employees when to clock in and out based on their shifts. Managers then receive notifications in real-time when an employee punches in or out for their shift. AttendanceBot allows users to generate and download Excel reports, or schedule reports to be sent periodically to their inbox to stay up-to-date.

AttendanceBot supports absence and attendance management tools which enable employees to apply for leave and obtain approvals within Slack. Employees simply send a message such as ‘sick today’ in order to request leave. Managers receive requests instantly for approval. Managers can also customize the approval workflow, so that specified leave requests can be auto-approved or require multi-level approvals. AttendanceBot allows users to create their own leave types, as well as implement their own leave policies by defining their rules for leave accrual. Shift planning tools help users plan and manage weekly, fortnightly or monthly shifts for employees from a single dashboard. Managers can track lateness or no shows, and control shift reassignments on the fly.

Easy time-tracking. Seamless integration with Slack

Used daily for 6-12 months

Saved time. Employees could track their time in the app we use the most.

Pros
It was easy for our employees to track their time. It integrated nicely into our Slack workflow. Overall it streamlined everything for our company. We would recommend this for any company who uses Slack.

Cons
It was a little bit challenging to edit the time to track reports in Slack. It would be a bit easier if there was also a web-based dashboard where we could make edits.

Response from Anaek


Hi Adam, I am happy to report that we now have external web views for editing of times and hours for everybody.
We've also launched two new dashboards for you to track hours for everybody. Can you please give that a look.

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.

It helped me a lot to handle smart working for 30 people during lockdown due to COVID-19

Pros
THe easiness to use it, just onesimple command for a basic functionality, but not limited to it where you need something more.

Cons
Lacalization not so easy, reports not easy to understand, could be more flexible for administration purpose (i.e. allow only manager to edit) but really small things...

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.

The right solution at the right time

The overall experience it is absolutely positive. As I stated in the title, I found the right solution at the right time. In this time of Covid-19 emergency I needed something which had a fast implementation and which was capable to track people's heath and attendance when they were working remotely. AttendanceBot definetely helped me to achieve this goal and their HelpDesk always supported me with proffessionality and effectiveness!

Pros
The most appreciated feature about this SW, is its integration with MS Teams. You can easily have it up and running for the whole team, in just a 10 minutes. Although you need some days to tune it up to your needs, customize all the features and notifications and let the people familiarize with it, it is definitely a fluid process which doesn't affect at all your business. Moreover the Customer support it is a top notch one! You can reach them out either by chat or email and they usually manage to solve your problem in timely manner. They are attentive to customers feedbacks and always happy to adjust their product according to what customers are trying to achieve.

Cons
The Software has been crafted to assolve the most common exigences about time keeping and leave management, but every company it's different, with different ways to manage people and sometimes what could seems a normal request simply doesn't have a simple answer (but as I said before, the customer support it is always happy to help!). Moreover the localization of the dashboard it's only in english and it might lead to some confusion for some users who are not familiar with the this language.
