Most critical review

 The App We've Chosen to use because it had the best features

Some areas could use improvement. The only way to enter time off is to code it as a vacation type. We can't give partial days. We schedule 12-16 people/day on our ambulances. If there is a special event, we are easily able to add that. SP keeps track of vacation days used as well as . I haven't ...

Shiftplanning is easy to use.

17/08/2017

Pros

I like the ease of use of Shiftplanning - - it's easy to set-up an employee and to add them to a schedule.

Cons

Not all of the "functions" are where I would expect them to be, but once I learned my way around the website, it's easy to use.

The software is mostly easy to use - ONCE you figure out how to make it work best for your company.

10/08/2017

Remote timeclock feature.

Pros

We have several different time clock locations and this makes using the timeclock and scheduling feature easy for us.

Cons

No batch printing option for timesheets. Our payroll provider isn't a Humanity partner so payroll is time consuming for us. Also, we have been using this software for 8 months and are still trying to figure out which features work best for us. Having an in-person onboarding/set-up would have made a world of difference.

As a manager with many employees, schedules and work areas, this program has been life changing!

05/08/2017

Prior to Humanity, our schedule was managed via email and Microsoft calendars. It was nearly impossible to appropriately approve vacation requests and get overtime shifts covered. After implementing Humanity the amount of stress that was eliminated was absolutely life changing!

Pros

I love how easy it is to use. I'm able to manage my ever changing schedule/staff with minimal effort. It's very easy to fill overtime slots and approve vacation requests ensuring my employees have a great work/life balance.

Cons

There are some limitations when it comes to customizing the interface. I'd like to be able to change the default option for requesting time off. I'd also like to be able to change some of the terminology used to better reflect what I'm using it for.

Inexpensive, Comprehensive Scheduling Software

21/07/2017

Saved us so many scheduling headaches. We were able to switch from an excel sheet to a program that will almost run itself (if only employees didn't get sick or have something come up last minute). We would not be able to schedule the 150+ shifts per week without humanity!

Pros

Easy to add multiple positions for each employee. Easy get setup and go. Easy to schedule for multiple weeks. Good value for features offered.

Cons

Your employees can't see the total time they've worked in the app. They can see each timesheet but they have to log into the computer to see the total hours. Some of the more advanced features are frustrating to figure out at first. Humanity doesn't subtract leave automatically

WE have multiple crews on different job sites so this software helps us to keep track them

20/06/2017

Without this software we would probably have to use a large table and a map with 20 figurines to track up to 6 crews working on jobs all over the country. Each day (or sometimes hour) when I get a call asking for a date to change or the project scope to increase or decrease we would have to dump the table over and start again.

Pros

Visually it is very clear and easy to read. It is also very reliable and we have had no problems. Thanks

Cons

It's definitely set up more for shift work than multiple job coverage. I'm not sure if we will be able to use this if we continue to grow our number of crews

Enjoyed. My Staff Like it

17/06/2017

Cuts down my work time of staffing. Emails are wonderful reminders. the sign in and out feature helps with payroll.

Pros

Love the repeat Shifts and how you can move staff around with out redoing all the work. The email reminders are convent also.

Cons

Wish you could print off a one page calendar to post in the place of work. Some times we have and error emails in regards to shifts.

great customer service... works great for the mostpart

24/05/2017

Pros

easy intuitive graphical interface, great customer service for whatever questions you may have.

Cons

I believe there were 2 or 3 but off the top of my head I can only remember that the schedule editing, for repeating shifts is not that easy to edit once you create it. I believe if you change something on one of those repeating shifts there's no option to make that global. You pretty much have to delete the schedule and recreate a new repeating one to do that.

The app is easy to use and serves its purpose of scheduling staff.

16/05/2017

I am able to track jobs, employee hours and budgeting information with this app.

Pros

You can use either the app or the computer to schedule staff. You are able to add notes in the app for each job. I like the notifications that are sent out to staff when a change is made and the notifications I receive when a shift is unacknowledged or put up for trade.

Cons

You are not able to see the shifts that were unacknowledged on the app, you have to use the computer. You are unable to post an open shift on the app, you must assign it to a specific person.

Very user friendly software

16/05/2017

Pros

We like the ease of scheduling our guards and getting their shifts acknowledged electronically. Our guards like the ease of access as well.

Cons

It is a hassle that they charge per active employee instead of ranges of employees. The security industry has a high turn over rate and having to disable guards regularly can be hard sometimes

enjoy using software because its very easy to use

05/05/2017

Pros

easy process, it also me to see exactly where my employees clock in and out and let me know if they are on time to their shifts

Cons

sometimes we have glitches to clock in depending on the area my nurses are in and we have to clock them in from the office which is not so good because we don't know exactly where they are when they are asking us to clock them in
