Timetastic overview

What is Timetastic?

Timetastic is a web-based staff leave planner and absence tracking software which helps businesses streamline the process for requesting and approving time off work, as well as updating calendars and schedules with a range of features including an interactive wall chart, personal calendars, third party integrations (Slack, G Suite, Google Calendar), and more. Native iOS and Android mobile apps give users the flexibility to request time off, update calendars, track annual leave and download reports on the go, via tablets and smartphones.

Timetastic allows teams to organize time off work from a central location. Employees highlight the days they want off, then receive request approvals or rejections through the same platform. All time off is updated and reflected immediately on the interactive wall chart and personal calendars. Timetastic’s interactive wall chart enables users to check who is in and who is not at a glance, and plan time accordingly to ensure busy periods have enough staff and avoid any clashes.

All employees have their own personal calendar from which they can view a summary of their annual leave. Timetastic allows users to group their staff into departments and set minimum staffing levels, so that teams can compare and review time off and ensure the right amount of people are always working. Timetastic supports any type of absence, allowing users to manage annual, sickness, maternity, unpaid, and compassionate leave, as well as meetings. Users can also create any custom or additional types of leave as required by their organization. Timetastic has the public holidays for more than 20 countries preloaded into the system.

Vacation and Leave-Planning Made Simple

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

I would love to comment about Timetastic's customer service, but I have never had to use it. The program has very few glitches, provides vacation and leave information flawlessly, and meets my organizations leave management needs beyond what I hoped. I highly recommend this program.

Pros
My company used to have four different managers who received time off requests, but the managers did not always communicate the leave schedule with the rest of the organization. Chaos ensued. With Timetastic, those same four managers still receive their time off requests, but once approved, the leave is scheduled and there for the whole organization to see. I especially appreciate the feature allowing each employee to have a designated approval person within the organization, rather than defaulting to Timetastic admin. My employees also love having consistent, easy access to their vacation time information. Employees are able to see, understand, and access their vacation time, making it easier for them to use.

Cons
The settings feature is a bit confusing, but Timetastic continually heard and responded to improvement requests, making items like local holidays perfectly customizable. My one consistent criticism is that it sometimes takes a day for leave requests to sync with Google calendar, but that is a minor drawback considering the benefits of the program.

Timetastic: It's Fantastic

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2019-07-23
Review Source: Capterra

In the end I'm very satisfied with Timetastic. It allowed me to let my employer know when I wanted to work and when I didn't, all without having to leave my desk. As a freelancer, it was a very beneficial addition to my library.

Pros
Timetastic is a software that lets you keep track of employee hours that they have worked or have yet to work. It contains a calendar with said hours, and offers notifications to let you know when someone is supposed to be on schedule (it also lets you plug in desired vacation times, which isn't something I've seen in other time-tracking apps). On the off chance that the boss isn't available for a period of time, someone else can be put in charge of the team (on the app) so that they can approve the hours as you plug them in. This allows everyone to keep working their desired hours, even when the higher-ups are out of town. Finally, despite its origin in Manchester, Timetastic can be used in the US, which is always a plus.

Cons
It did seem to run a bit slow on my phone, but I'm also using an iPhone 5s, which is somewhat outdated.

Timetastic Review

Used daily for less than 6 months

Timetastic is a real time saver, and it works for the whole office. The work sheet is fantastic, since it is divided into days and hours and even the pay deductions from leave times are based on that sheet. The work sheet is visible to everyone in the office, so there is no more confusion as to who is supposed to be on duty or who in-fact is on leave for the day, or absent on vacation.

Pros
What I like most about this nifty little Timetastic app is the fact that it is able to group staff members together, separate from the bosses' group, which is also grouped together. It really helps not having that blend-over. The app updates all changes made to it instantly, and it can be downloaded to mobile or to your desktop at work. This app in my opinion, is the fastest, smoothest way to book days off or to get approval for leave days.

Cons
What I like least about Timetastic is that while it is promoted as being a free app that you can use, the trial version does expire after two months and by then you feel like you have to pay for it. You feel that way because of the extent of time you've already invested into the app, and after having it on your phone for two months you have already logged everyone in the company's names, calendars, as well as everybody's leave day information and even private notifications that had been sent through the Timetastic app, and you don't want to loose any of that data, so you end up having to pay for the app.

I have loved using Timetastic. It works exactly as it was pitched to us. Knowing your coworkers PTO schedule was overlooked before we started using Timetastic, but now I cannot imagine life without it.

Pros
Timetastic is one of the cleanest and simplest tools I have ever used. It serves one purpose and it does it incredibly well. It provides a detailed look at the time off for everyone across our company. If I need to book a meeting, I always check my team's calendar first.

Cons
There really isn't much to dislike. Timetastic is so simple and does its job so well. Some people might say that it is too simplistic from a UX perspective.

Its great to have so we know the whereabouts of the team as not everyone keeps an Outlook Calendar. Also people don't always have to ask me!! The guys are very efficient / on the ball at answering my questions.

Pros
Its great to have a picture of all team members and where they are - be it on leave, on site etc. Easyish to use when people get the hang. Some people have trouble getting on in the first place (I think may be user error). Good for resourcing (when used properly).

Cons
If we could have a bit more flexibility with leave etc. that has been input if we need to cancel just one day out of 7 for example. You need to cancel the whole request and resubmit. More colours for categories would be good too.
