Built for Teams Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Built for Teams's features:

Brian Keating

Great PTO Tracking Tool

2020-11-11

Built for Teams has been a huge time saver. What use to take a few hours a month maintaining a spreadsheet has been cutdown to less than 15 minutes approving time off requests.

Pros

This tool is very easy to setup and maintain. Employees are able to track their PTO balance.

Cons

I would like to see them add a few more reports and make report generation a little easier.

Great PTO Tracker!

2019-03-15

We have full time PTO tracking with our employees. We can look back at time used and decide if our PTO benefit package is working for our employees or if we need to adjust it.

Pros

Our employees all use it, which says a lot about the ease of use.

Cons

It would be nice to customize the reporting.

Thanks, Tracy, for taking time to review Built for Teams and provide us with this feedback. We're very happy to see that our product is working so well for you! We do have a setting that allows you to determine how specific employees can be in using their time off; we can even support time off by the single minute if necessary! If you have any questions about how to use this setting just let us know.

Built for Teams Review

2019-12-13

Managing PTO is so much simpler now as opposed to when we managed it with a spreadsheet and the employees love it.

Pros

Very easy to train employees on how to use the portal. The program is pretty intuitive, and it has streamlined our process for tracking PTO.

Cons

Editing past PTO can be a challenge, currently, we have to make an adjusting entry if an employee's plans change and they don't use the time they requested.

If we are able to help make managing PTO "a breeze" as you put it, that makes us so happy to hear!

This method allows us to help more people and serve them better. Thanks again for your great feedback and for being a Built for Teams customer!

A great way to connect and manage your organization

2019-03-28

Built for Teams gives our team a way to stay connected and communicate at the click of a button.

Thank you, Robert, for this feedback! It sounds like the org chart and our email reminders have been particularly helpful.

Regarding the timesheet reminders we can help you resolve that! In Built for Teams it's possible to configure timesheets to only be required by certain employee types. It sounds like your administrators haven't done that so we'll reach out to them and offer some tips on how to do that. That way, you won't get emails about a timesheet that you don't need to submit!

Built For Teams brought order to our PTO policy chaos

2019-03-15

Built For Teams allowed me to implement a robust, yet easy-to-use system that didn't cause any headaches for employees and gave managers greater visibility over when each member of their team would be unavailable.

Pros

- The UI incorporates best practices so very little training is needed to get new users comfortable with the system; the user experience is very logical. - The shared calendar can be set to allow employees and managers to view others' approved PTO dates to ensure adequate coverage before a new PTO request is made.

Cons

- The system can be used to warehouse a lot of employee data that we don't keep in Built (tax info, direct deposit info, benefits data not related to PTO) and the inclusion of those fields can sometimes cause confusion for new employees.

Built For Teams

2020-01-16

Being able to easily track requests and hours is so time saving and easy.

Pros

It makes it so easy to know my own balance, but, also, the balances of my Employees. It's super easy for me to submit a request and very easy to approve my employees straight from the email, I don't have to log in to approve it.

Cons

I honestly cannot think of anything except the ease of use for the mobile version.

Hi John! Thanks for this kind review. It's great to see that "ease of use" is a major pro of using our system. We like hearing that!

Regarding employees canceling approved time off, we actually do have a setting that allows you to enable that. Some customers want to allow it, some don't, so we support both!

If you'll reply to this message we'll help you get that setting changed if you'd like.

Hi Michael! Thanks for the helpful review of Built for Teams. If we're helping to automate things and simplify things for you, then we feel like we're doing our job.

Regarding the note about cancelling or deleting an approved request, we actually do have a setting that your administrators can change that will allow employees to cancel/delete their own requests after they've been approved. If this setting is enabled and a person cancels a request, a notification would then be sent to the person who approved the request, so that everyone is aware of the cancellation.

I'd suggest talking to one of your admins to see if they'd be willing to change that setting in your company's account. If they have any questions about how to do that we'll be happy to help.

Tanesha, your review is so great! We love to hear that you value Built for Teams enough to consider it one of your best business purchases and offers a more effective solution to so many of your daily tasks. As for automating the setup email invitation, many customers like to create employee accounts and assign documents and create schedules etc all before inviting them to the system to ensure they aren't granted access until their profile is complete. This is just one example of why that process is not automatic, but there is a user login report you can pull to help you determine who has or has not been invited as well as if they have logged in or not.
If you want to leave feedback on a time off request, you'll need to log into Built for Teams to approve/deny rather than using your email to approve/deny. Then you can leave feedback or comments on the request.
We appreciate your time in leaving us such a great review and we truly value you as a customer! Thank you again!

Built for Teams for Non-Profits

2019-10-31

This is solving the issue of having someone track all employees paid time off.

Pros

Instead of using wonky systems, such as Excel spreadsheets, you can track employees (and your) paid time off, sick time, etc.

Cons

I don't have anything negative to say about Built for Teams, it's insanely easy to use, I suggest it to all HR managers.

simple and easy to utilize and request time off, and PTO balances is viewed at your fingertip

2018-06-13

Pros

the portal is easy & simple to navigate & executing time off requests are quick and easy.

Cons

In other words, if there are many time off requests are emailed from various employees, there is no way you are able to tell which you've approved/denied, unless you go into the portal to view what's left.

Your employees do have the ability to view their complete history, which shows every transaction (even for past years). It sounds like it would be helpful for you if we made the transaction history easier to print, though. Is that correct?

I'll have our customer support team reach out to you to discuss this further. We want to make sure your employees are taken care of!
