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.

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.

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.

Great app for small business users

2014-08-18

It's been a great help in managing the schedules and vacation requests for my team. It's easy to use, and the team is EXTREMELY receptive to feedback.

Pros

- Great support staff - Easy to use - Competitive pricing - Chock full of tools/reporting capabilities - Very customizable

Cons

- Scheduling can be a bit buggy at times, but again, the team is super responsive and always willing to help - Not thrilled with the export functionality

One of the best solutions i have come across

2019-06-18

Pros

For an organization where employees don't work in shifts, Humanity doesn't tend to offer alot compared to other products out there, but it shines best when it comes to Shift planning and scheduling.

Cons

The mobile app isn't as good as the web version of the product.

The self-service for employees is great as this gets them to be a part of the work of scheduling by submitting their availability and day off requests.

Pros

Being able to see the operations as a whole, able to see all departments at once.

Cons

The reports aren't very great!

Humanity is great for corporations with a high volume of employees.

2018-05-30

Easy access and clear communication when inquiring about my schedule

Pros

This shift planning software allows the employees to schedule and update shifts with ease without having to be in constant back and forth with the supervisor.

Cons

If Humanity were to send notifications when new shifts become available, as well as text message reminders/updates instead of email reminders getting lost in the inbox.

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 have a nice mobile app which makes any remote workdays very easy to track.

Cons

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

Humanity Review

2019-01-06

Overall I would recommend this software for a small to a mid size organization. It is functional, however there are much better products available....for a price.

Pros

One of the best features is the ability to look at all of an employees data in one place.

Cons

some of the reporting functions are complicated and the filters do not always allow you to view exactly what you are trying to.

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.
