I use WhosOff daily as an administrator

2018-06-04

Pros

It is clear to see whos off as an employee and submit leave for employees as an administrator.

Cons

I would like reporting function be easier and more visible, as well as the ability to turn of email notifications for certain employees whilst making changes instead of the organisation as a whole.

Tracking who's off

2019-12-04

We used who's off in the past but have not transitioned to a competing product. It did solve the job for us, but overall user experience feels clumpsy and old.

Pros

I guess it solved the job of allowing me to see which employees that are off and when, and report my own off time, but overall it feels like an application developed 10 years ago and just in maintain mode now.

Cons

It wasn't really a great experience to use their mobile app for iOS.

WhosOff for a small company

2021-11-23

Our experience of the system meant we could introduce new absence management methodologies as the company grew from 25 to 140 employees. Managers were able to be trained and educated on the use of the system quickly.

Pros

From a start up position to a medium sized business, the system offers both the employee and manager the ability to manage an employee's absence with ease, whilst being able to run useful reports.

Cons

Nothing really, we simply outgrew the system.

WhosOff Review

2018-09-12

In overall, the biggest problem, when having two accounts for different regions, with the sofware is that you can´t create an employee within two account.

Pros

The best thing of this software is that it is really user friendly. As a user, you can find all the information needed on the first page.

Cons

It does not allow combining data of two different accounts without losing information.

Helpful to keep track of staff

2019-10-14

Not that it was easy to keep track of people on the MS Environment but we had it work.

Pros

We are using just the Leave Requests portion so our teams can know who is off and when without having to review an email chain. It is working well and providing the visibility we were looking for.

Cons

That said our complicated software could not do this in a manner that was easy to use and easy to see by all employees.

Used for our company

2018-12-12

Ease the burden of Holiday admin with this program, it works well. The only downside is intregration with calendars in outlook etc could be better!

Pros

With Supervisiors in charge of holidays per department, when a request is submitted by an employee an e-mail is sent to them who in turn can review the dashboard of the team and then approve or decline.

Cons

What would be better, is integration with outlook and other calendar providers.

Not so easy on the eyes.

2019-06-18

Pros

Customer Service is top notch!

Cons

(Too Basic) It lacks customization, for example when i was looking to purchase a product for leave management, i wanted a software where i could add multiple leave approves in a specific order, which wasn't possible in WhosOff.

Easy to use

2018-06-22

It's very to easy to file my leaves, saves time.

Pros

It has a very easy to use interface so it doesnt require further help to navigate the features.

Cons

Maybe the design, it's quite boring, but it doesn't affect the functionality in any means.

Poor user experience detracts from a decent toolset.

2018-07-24

It handles the holiday planning for my department, but is time ineffective and often frustrating.

Pros

The dashboard function is clear and gives a strong departmental over-view of currently planned leave.

Cons

Attempting to access the platform via iPhone results in an infinite redirect and the page is only accessible when you request the site as a Desktop.

Very impressed and gives transparency to whole company

2017-11-13

Pros

I like how everyone in the company can easily see who is off on a certain day (if their permissions allow them).

Cons

There should be a feature to edit a holiday already booked rather than having to cancel and rebook it again.

WhosOff makes it so much easier for me to do my job

2017-11-30

WhosOff saves me time which means I can do all the really important things and don't have to worry about checking calendars to see whose available for meetings.

Pros

I like the fact that you can see, at a glance, where everyone in your company is at any given time. This is great when I'm planning meetings - it means I can schedule the right date and know that everyone will be available.

Easy to use and good for its purpose

2020-09-24

This is a good solution for companies or teams for registering overtime and managing vacations.

Pros

It's quite easy to register overtime, schedule vacations and to have a good overview on who is/will be off in your team.

Cons

When registering overtime you have to scroll all the way down your previously registered overtime, which can be quite boring.
