The most ideal service I've found for companies working with contractors rather than employees

2017-04-17

My contractors like the interface and importantly, say that it makes it's notification system helpful as well.

Pros

Robust features closely match my needs for a comprehensive, one-stop service.

Cons

I have to manually merge WU and custom reports (shifts scheduled) for each employee, which is very time-consumming.

We use this to seamlessly manage shifts for 60 part time employees

2017-11-27

We have 60 part time employees that fulfill a dozen different roles.

Pros

This tool allowed us to move to the next level in supporting and scheduling student employees. We were using another tool and it was fine, this one gave more flexibility and far better reporting.

Cons

We have run into a couple of problems over the past several months with reports. Support has been very good in identifying and fixing those reports quickly.

2013-03-18

I love the way it automatically sends out notifications to my employees when a schedule is published.

Pros

Ease of use, flexibility on the scheduling, custom rules and settings - export to payroll.

Cons

Time clock interface could be better.

Easy to Use and Full of Features!

2014-08-14

My TV/Film Production company has been using Shiftplanning for 2+ years and being able to not only have time-track hours, but also schedule shifts, have pay-rates increase or decrease based on either location and or time of the day, ability to keep overtime in check, and integrate our favorite calender for event scheduling is a huge benefit for our company.

Pros

Great Support Loaded with Features Integrates Great iPhone / Android App Affordable Price

Cons

Not a Con, but certainly would be a great additional feature: Being able to assign tasks to individual employees and have hours tracked to those tasks.

Humanity.com review

2017-04-20

It's better than the older Shiftplanning, particularly the functionality of the mobile app, but otherwise still quite clunky.

Pros

It's inexpensive and the mobile apps makes shift changes and reminders much more convenient.

Cons

Clunky. Customer support is inconsistent. Usually I have to wait several hours for a call back or chat response.

Good software for time clock

2017-04-16

The only thing I really would like to see different is a more customizable way to track vacation & sick time, for a pre-set bank that is customizable for each worker.

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Not much, just some more customization for vacation and sick time.

Humanity is a terrific value!

2017-04-14

Overall Humanity offers the best "bang for your buck". I've researched all the competition and they far exceed others in the market. There is still room for improved and enhanced functionality, I have hope they will dominate in the next few years.

Pros

Complete control for updating user preferences and passwords is a great feature!

Cons

For example, employee time cards are difficult to use - it would be great if there were a multi step process where employees and supervisors can approve timesheets.

Quick access to company time clock

2019-07-17

Humanity is what my company uses to clock in and out and track schedules for all employees, it eliminates the issues around keeping tracking of time with our traditional digital time clock, it also is very easy to request time off, keep track when other employees call out, and their mobile app makes remote workdays a breeze.

Pros

They make it simple to find the schedules of all employees within the company regardless of which department or office location they are in.

Cons

Sometimes clocking in and out remotes glitches but customer service is always fast to correct the issue.

Scheduling for employee shifts

2018-05-10

Pros

Allows employees to request off for PTO, clock in, schedule shifts and has a mobile application.

The greatest downside is the cost; it is definitely a more expensive scheduling software for just 20 employees.

Service has been great! Having the customer service really makes this what it is.

2017-09-22

Easy for employees to see shifts and the reminders are huge.

Pros

Hands Down the customer service. It is fairly user-friendly but can be complicated at times when doing things that repeat.

Cons

Also, my employees didn't like the clock-in/clock-out functionality, so we ended up having to use another software application.
