1st Review of Scheduling Software

2016-08-03

very comprehensive and thorough training prior to going live. Support as needed. Fairly intuitive software.

Pros

There was little to no problem with transition to this software for management or staff.

Cons

I would like a 2 month or so follow up to review things that are used less frequently such as reports.

Game Changer!

2021-05-13

the staff have been very helpful, and [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], our contact is always able to answer our questions. The videos are extremely helpful.

Pros

As with any new data base, it was a bit time consuming on the front end entering in information and making it truly fit our needs, once the data is there, there is an ease about manipulating, changing, copying information.

Cons

I have not used the manager reports as much as I thought as they are a bit cumbersome in extra data that I then need to delete from the excel spreadsheet.

SA review

2021-05-26

Good, thank you.

Pros

I like the mobile app version as well.

Cons

I still can't really figure out how to use the feature to let me know when there is not sufficient coverage, or if too many people may be scheduled, etc.

Only one problem.

2018-03-12

Please, add a way for time accrued/time requests off auditing (so employees know their leave balances and cannot put in for time off past their accrued current accrual balances).

Pros

Employees can view personal schedule in several length variations; ability to see availability of open vacation slots.

Cons

Schedule Anywhere needs an accrual (vacation, compensation time, sick etc.) self-audit capacity; because Schedule Anywhere lacks this capacity, our facility has DOWNGRADED to a 1990's scheduling software program that really lacks clarity and efficiency.

Wonderful Product!

Sending messages to entire shifts or to the part time roster - notifying them of openings, along with the mobile application for our employees solidifies this for us.

Good product but not the easiest to work with

2021-05-11

The program does its job for us. I wish it would speak with Google calendar and other scheduling programs.

Pros

Schedule Anywhere allows us to view yearly schedules for our essential employees.

Cons

It can be difficult to use at times. The mobile version needs to be improved.

Their Customer Service is outstanding, the software helps our company on so many positive ways!!

2017-06-15

online accessibility for our employees. Its much easier to organize, keep track and create our daily, weekly and monthly schedules!

Pros

With the upgrade the weeks are separated so its easy to input schedules for the entire month and multiple personnel!

Cons

The only thing I like least about this software is that the app does not allow you to view schedules by department and employee per day.

Great tool

2018-07-23

Pros

I used this awesome tool to schedule 12 hr shifts for an organization with over 30 employees. Never had an issue knowing who was on night shift or on call.

Cons

On the administrative side, it didn't alert users if their schedule was changed unknowingly.

Communication enhancing tool

2021-05-26

The availability to have notifications go out to affected officers and not every employee is great.

Pros

Schedule change notifications to the affected officers keeps them informed without having to post multiple versions of a schedule.

Cons

The officer whose schedule was changed will be notified, but if a supervisor makes a change and fails to post it and I post the modified schedule, unless it was my schedule that changed and I received the notification, I have no idea what changes were made or by whom.

Schedule Anywhere Review

2021-05-25

Outstanding. A simple email to the sales representative is usually all it takes if I have quewstions. Super responsive and walks me through any issues I'm having.

Pros

It's very customizable to your needs.

Cons

However, once I learned how to do everything and was walked through it by your staff, it's very easy to do now.

Great scheduling tool for law enforcement and shift work

2021-05-25

It is a great program and does what it is designed for.

Pros

Employees can use the app to request leave and their supervisor receives an immediate push notification on their phone.

Cons

I have not found many things that I don't like about this software. If anything, maybe the phone app could use a little work to make it more visually appealing.

Amazing Product!

2021-05-25

Now, I can Add employees, change schedules, and see years ahead within minutes or less!

Pros

To be able to visually see our entire staffs schedules for a 6-week period with just a glance.

Cons

I wish the app was more detailed and I could view the entire schedule instead of just one day at a time. I’d like to be able to print all people on a shift daily as opposed to just the ones working.

schedule anywhere review

2021-05-10

Pros

Trading shifts amongst each other- automatically with supervisor approval was convenient.

Cons

We have a large department of approximately 200 employees, and when balancing a schedule it would have been nice to see the coverage watch in every section of the schedule, so if that could always be at the bottom part of the screen even if you are at the top of the schedule, or middle or bottom.
