User-Friendly PTO Tracking Software that Provides Peace of Mind

2018-12-11

Communicative customer support and a streamlined, user-friendly interface that meets all of our PTO tracking needs.

Pros

It allows us to easily resolve employee questions and concerns by referring to the captured data. Data entry and report creation is easy and very fast.

Cons

While viewing and booking employee time is super user-friendly, the initial set up on the back end was a bit confusing.

Good. Easy to use. Wish there were a few more options for WFH employees.

2017-10-24

Tracking of employees out of the office as well as my own vac. time used.

Pros

I also like the dashboard so you can see who is out that day and who is not to plan accordingly for the day.

Cons

It would be nice to show who is working from home and when as well as have it approved by management.

Hi Angela - Thanks so much for taking the time to share your views. Interestingly, you can configure Bindle to track work from home time. It's simply a matter of creating a new type for those requests in the Admin section. Simple! Bindle! Yay!

Great Simple Leave Tracking

2018-11-25

Pros

Simple and quick to use. Features a good amount of customisation options without being too complex

Cons

It would be good to have more customisable reports, or more feature-rich APIs so we can create our own reports and integrations.

Leave Management made easy

2021-01-18

For us this has solved the age old issue of lots of spreadsheets, keeping them up to date, not having records matched, not recalling when someone is due for leave, no consistency amongst forms etc etc. And in addition, for the company to assess entitlements and encourage staff to take leave and reduce the accounting liability.

Pros

We couldn't even manage & accrue leave this simply with MYOB, in particular allowing staff access to view their entitlements, and simply apply and have their leave approved.

Cons

A lot of clicking to get to detail for employees - i.e. needs a one page view summary.

Bindle is extremely easy to use and is exactly what we were looking for with our time off program.

2017-10-16

An easy and inexpensive way to track time off for our employees.

Pros

Very easy to use; interfaces with Outlook; the Bindle team is extremely customer service focused; great value for the money

Cons

Wish there were an option to color code different types of time off. Not having any other issues with the system.

Easy to use, user friendly and nothing complicated about it!

2017-11-13

- Reduced emails to manage leave - Ability to import existing data (leave hours/days) - Ability to import leave dates into Microsoft Outlook calendar (we love this feature!)

Pros

We love that it can import into Microsoft Outlook so management can easily view who is on leave etc.

Cons

The only small thing was that the software wasn't set up a year or two in advance which lead to some confusion when applying for leave. Eg. NSW holidays wasn't set up yet for 2018. This was only a small issue and quickly rectified by the Bindle team :)

Saved me tons of time and energy.

2019-05-06

Now the burden is on the employee to notify me about a holiday or sick day.

Pros

I like the ease of use for both me as the admin and for my employees. I have added categories, ie. training & trade shows, that I did not initially think about being a part of this solution.

Cons

I would like to have a feature for anniversary reminders since that info is already there and it is a good time to celebrate and review my employees.

Bindle does exactly what it says it does and does it well

2020-06-15

It was the perfect solution as we did not want or need additional HR functionality. The branding does a good job of communicating the overall feel of the site.

Pros

It saves me so much time tracking vacation form my team and everyone can track their own balances which saves time and conflict at the end of the year.

Cons

Specifically, when looking to add a new company-wide holiday the Action buttons were out of the screen and I didn't scroll past 2021 and 2022 to look for the ADD NEW EVENT. So I added a company-wide vacation day which I then had to undo (one by one) until I got support and created what I really intended.

2019-03-16

We’ve enjoy it

Pros

Nice dashboard, reporting

Cons

Cannot assigns more than 1 person to approve, so if someone is on vacation, items need to be manually switched. Would like to assign heirchy of approved. Also would like to move people from one area or region to another in bulk- not one by one

My file cabinet is clean

2019-03-05

Having a fast efficient way to track vacation days has been a BIG time saver for us.

Pros

There are no more paper vacation requests cluttering up my file cabinet since the start of the new year! Its a great, quick way to handle vacation requests.

Cons

It would be convenient once the vacation day is approved to have a mass email go out alerting other employees of what staff member will be gone and when.

Hi Todd,

Thanks for your kind words. Did you know there is an option in Bindle to CC all leave approvals to any email address you like. Maybe this will provide the alert to all employees you are looking for?
