Angela Workman

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!

The wall chart enables everyone to see who's taking time off.

Pros

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

Cons

Works Great

2018-03-18

Pros

My employees know how much time they have off without me telling them.

Cons

I would like an app for my phone. Maybe user error there but I could not find it in the app store. It would be great to make it more accessible.

Hi Jason - Wow! Thanks for your review. It sounds like Bindle is working well for Regents School of Oxford.

It's not your fault you can't find our app in the App Store... we don't have one yet.

Bindle does work great on your mobile through your browser though! It's very nice on tablet devices too.

Pros

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.

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 :)

Janet Prather

This app is perfect for our small school. It totally reduced the need for paper forms.

2018-05-23

The wall chart allows for all employees to see who is off and when.

Pros

The app is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Our employees who are not as computer literate have no problem using this app.

Cons

In fact when we first started we needed an earlier start time to the day (since we are a school, we start at 7:30) to make the hours work for us well and Bindle's customer service was quick to meet our need by adding the earlier start time.

Great service to manage PTO for our Smallish staff

2017-10-19

Simple for staff to request time. Quick in and out don't need a ton of extra steps.

Pros

Easy to use and see who all has requested time off on the same day as the current request.

Cons

To approve the PTO request you have to log into the system rather than just replying to the request email with your approval or disapproval.

Hi Allen - Thanks for the great review. Glad to hear that Bindle is something you'd highly recommend and that it's simple for staff to use.

Bindle is really good at maintaining different accrual rates for staff, so we'll follow up to find out why you are managing that separately.

Thanks again Allen!

Hi mystery reviewer! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on Bindle. Can you reach out to us at support@bindle.io so we can help your Admin find out why your Bindle balance is incorrect? We're sure we can help to figure out any adjustments you might need.

P.S. We're not so sure about adding extra communication mechanisms into Bindle itself per se, but thanks for the suggestion!

Individuals are more accountable, info is more accurate, processing payroll is much more efficient.

2018-06-11

Efficient time off management for team of about 15 people in a busy office.

Pros

Having a centralised place for all staff leave requests which is more efficient, reduces human error, saves paper and time.

Cons

Hours can't be customised as required. Need 15 minute intervals, eg. to show that a staff member is out of office for the day on personal or annual leave, but does 45 minutes work from home.

Pros

The software is very user friendly, easy for both administrators and employees to use.

I do not like the calendar function and how once I add a custom Holiday Calendar with the paid holidays we have off, I can't take off the other holidays that are already pre populated in the calendar.
