Findmyshift Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Findmyshift's features:

Derrick Holland

Pleasantly Suprised

2017-07-25

Pros

The reporting feature on hours worked per employee and time off report have been a great help in our staff management.

Cons

Hard to use on an iPhone, the scrolling isn't the easiest, however, it is useful to use on the go. recognising am-pm shifts or previously entered shift can also be an issue.

Just a caution though - one of my employees did use this siftware to take an unfair dismissal case to court and I can't share it with employees anymore due to this risk.

Ease - webbased - easy to use - reports for leave

Cons

Love it but...

2018-08-20

FindMyShift works really well for our business needs, however, it could do so much more, the lack of regular updates and new feature as put the platform behind the competition.

Pros

Being able to have the rota per building or per employee, we use per employee base don our business needs.

Cons

Holiday management Uploads section and notice board need a lot of loving, not very 2018 more like 1999.

Keeping it Simple

2018-08-27

Employee self service for when can and cannot work is a no brainer now, and the instantaneous publishing of rosters via email and push notifications just simple.

Pros

To put it simply, the ease of using the software. Setting up staff, linking the metrics, reoccuring availabilities / non availabilities, free text notes, colour schemes, heaps of features

Cons

Could have more integration with other products.

Pros

Nothing at this point, maybe some more detailed reports from the data that could be available for research and annual/Monthly automatic reporting? Dashboard for management?

Value for Money

2018-09-03

going from manual resource management for a Contact Center, from using various spreadsheets to using Findmyshift has been a breath of fresh air and made management of the resource a doddle.

Pros

The range of reporting is really helpful and as a whole it is really easy to navigate. the view is very clean and easy to find what you're looking for. having visibility of any time off being added is a real great tool.

Cons

It's a bit annoying when an employee changes their hours and you have to go through and update a few weeks worth with the new hours, A way of having a default shift pattern for each employee that you can change so it changes it for all future shifts.

Thanks for the review Simon! To filter by multiple items, just add a comma between them. You can chain as many items as you like in a filter. Also, a quick way to add time off is to select the dates on the schedule, right click and select Add > Time off. I hope this helps!

I schedule for 2 different companies and www.findmyshift.com is far more value for your money.

2017-08-18

Timesaving, Flexible, Employee tracking.

Pros

I find it to be easy to use, functional, flexible, feature packed and also like the mobility of it.

Cons

It would be nice to see biometrics built into the database for automatic time clocking... as an option it would be nice to have the feature to have a daily sign in sheet that can be used online by supervisors to check their staff in easily.

I am able to download reports for all staff or an individual within date parameters which has proved to be a very useful function.

Pros

-Easy to learn and use - Able to create accurate reports for individual employees

Cons

- The autosave is good but it takes a long time. eg. I have to wait to add a holiday if I have just deleted or amended someone's hours.

Hayley Hall

A no frills staff management system that's easy to use and navigate

2017-07-06

More stable and reliable staff management system

Pros

The interface is clear and easy to navigate making it easier to signpost employees. The rota is simple to produce and amend when necessary meaning staff are notified asap when changes take place.

Cons

It can at times be too regimented - although at time of writing this review I cannot recall the specific incident that supports this statement. The mobile app also seems to require constantly updating which frustrates some of our staff who only access their rota/noticeboard this way.

( company, 501-1000 employees)

beautiful app to manage employees from anywhere

2018-05-16

Pros

allows real-time monitoring of employees either in a single company or in several at the same time. where you can monitor with your clock application the hours that employees are working and automatically generate automated reports to calculate payroll and manage costs.

Cons

It is very difficult to see something negative in this application, since it has several years in development and improvement. the only negative would be his dependence on the Internet to manage. since if the Internet fails, we could have administrative control problems. It should be developed in more languages.

Creating employee schedules with ease.

Pros

Easy to use, and easily accessible to employer as well as employees. The flexibility of moving the shifts around makes it easy when employees request time off, I just drag the shift to an employee available.

Cons

Not being able to request time off from mobile app. The mobile app not having the functionality of making edits to shifts, having to go through the desktop view.

Makes Scheduling easy

2016-11-30

My only problem is when an employee forgets to clock in, we can't change the time, so we aren't using that feature. Overall saves us a lot of time making and changing the schedules and keeps our employees informed.

Pros

Easy to change and send to all employees the updates Time off Requests are easy to track

Cons

Clock in times can't be corrected if someone forgets to clock in

Thanks for leaving your review!

The time clock times are kept read-only so that they can be used as an audit trail of exactly who clocked-in and out at that time.

Of course, this is not going to work for payroll and reporting, which is why payroll and reports all hang off timesheets (approved time clock times).

For more information, please see these help articles (or just chat with us live on the site):

Great Cloud Solution for Rosters

2017-05-24

Ease of use. Good employee response and less arguing

Pros

I like the ease of importing new staff and the template driven week by week roster.

Cons

I would like to see an option to setup rosters by number rather than employees and then you can add employee to number. this way you could build a number based template that anyone can be attached to.

Findmyshift is the most practical online option we have found and it makes our staff management easy

2018-01-04

Pros

We can list all our employees and add the necessary information for each of them.

Cons

We do not merge information with our POS, but I think Findmyshift would not be able to share it. This may be necessary if we upgrade our POS system for a full clock-in POS. If we did so, we would like the POS information to update Findmyshift, but at the moment those changes would have to be applied manually
