    Pros
    This software is a lifesaver and it helps you stay on track with your finances. It also helps for the times in between with needing extra funds.
    I like the overall idea of the software and it helps connect employees together for scheduling issues and to communicate. It’s also good to keep up with my schedule and finances all in the same place.
    I like how easy and fast it is to set up and has good tracking of all the money transfers.
    Cons
    There’s not anything that I particularly disliked. Maybe having to use my FaceID anytime I exited the app or when there was an interruption.
    It reads the schedule wrong sometimes because it reads the picture posted wrong depends on how fuzzy the picture is taken.
    Not the worst feature but having to remember to log out every time I use it so no one else can just open it up is a little bit of a hassle. All my other financial apps automatically log me out.

    I like it for communicating scheduling with staff.

    Pros

    I like I can post the schedule for my staff and it instantly syncs with their calendar! As well as sending communication through the messaging feature.

    Cons

    The one thing I do not like is when someone request off time or does a switch of shift, as the admin of the store- there is no place to save it to reference back. I have to take a screen shot to remember to put in at work.

    Overall I really like this app

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I like the scheduler and the ability to share these things with staff easily. I love the shift swap so that i don't always need to be the one looking to replace someone's shift

    Pros

    I love the scheduler and the ability for employees to shift swap. It saves time and energy for me that could be used else where

    Cons

    I have trouble with the transition from the main page to the shift or shift swap page. It sometimes will not change or takes forever

    Pros

    I love this app so much is really easy to use and it benefits a lot of workers , I love how you can switch shifts with your coworkers and the fact that you able to see your schedule is awesome! I love this app! I also love the fact that it sends you a reminder before your shift is going to start , this is the best app ever!!! I also love the fact that it can tell you how much your next check is supposed to be ! Another thing that i like is that it allows you to look at your coworkers schedule and your allowed to easily message them.

    Cons

    One of the cons of this app is that sometimes the schedule gets deleted but other than that i love this app!

    Excellent way to unite my staff

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    Easy to post schedules and shift changes. Gives an alert to upcoming shifts on your phone. Can give important shop info to all employees at one time.

    Cons

    Sometimes can take awhile for schedule to post. Employees have to make sure their app is updated to be able to view things properly.
