Pros

I like the ease of scheduling and the ease of accessibility. My employees enjoy having their schedule at their fingertips at all times.
It utilizes all of my employees' availabilities and I love having the ability to see that my employee has acknowledged their schedules.
We loved all of the features and integrations. With the new law that was supposed to go into effect for salary overtime, this was the perfect software to choose.

Pros

The product for free is so great it works great and gives notifications to the Security Staff on their schedule.
It was super easy to setup, super easy to connect my staff to it and eliminated so many scheduling frustrations I had been dealing with.
Ease of use, ease of setup, setup is organized and clear, love that it notifies my staff when I publish a schedule and is integrated with phone platforms/has an app.

Cons

I did not realize this when signing up, and find it a maddening waste of time when you have a real problem to solve (and you will have problems!).
My only bad experience is that I had to restart my phone a few times because of the GPS problems when I was trying to clock in, which was annoying and time-consuming.
If you make a mistake and accidentally alter the availability for one day you have to go back to that day and fix it before adjusting your availability.

Cons

There’s no option to edit a profile after they are connected. I also dislike that once I posted a schedule I could not fix any issues without notifying everyone.
Also, there was a problem my peers and I had with signing into OpenSimSim.
Some problems with getting employees disconnected.

I was a non believer!

Reviewed 7 years ago

I was a non believer in which I didnt think this product would work with our restaurant ways of scheduling. Boy was I wrong, not only is it EASIER then my old way, its much faster and everyone can see it at all times on thier phones (because we all know that everyone has thier phones by them at all times)! There were a few glitches at first, but those have been fixed and overall this is a great product. What did I do with out you SimSim??!!!

Pros

how quick my schedule gets to my employees, they also LOVE the fact that you turn your phone and can see EVERYONES schedule

Cons

when I go to schedule someone they ALWAYS come up as Bartender then I have to switch their job title, even when bartender is NOT in their scope of work.

Everyone can see the schedule, set when they can or can not work.

Pros

The visual is nice and I like that you can print out the schedule weekly or monthly

Cons

No way to tell who messed with it and changed things. Unable to do one person the same schedule each week. Need more room for notes at the top. Anyone that has an Android phone that is more than 2 years old keep having issues with the app.

Open SimSim as a good scheduler app

Reviewed 5 years ago

I am part of an organization that sets up the work shifts using OpenSimSim. I find it easy to use, practical and easy to change schedules when needed to.

Pros

I like is very easy to use, very informative, and flexible to do changes in the schedule. I think Flexibility is key for this type of apps.

Cons

Really I cannot think in what I like the list. Is very functional and practical. Serves the purpose for what it was created.

Excellent Addition For My Team

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have worked in the Operational Management sector for many years and always found employees coming up with new excuses when not turning up for work or 'I didn't know I was in'. This cuts all this out as it verifies when shifts have been confirmed by employees. It also cuts out tons of paper when doing shift swaps, annual leave and printing out rostas saving time and money.

Pros

Firstly I use the standard version so it's free, one of the only free rostering software packages I could find

Cons

Lack of auditing tools. I would have liked to be able to track back who has authorised annual leave and also have the ability to input sickness etc

Scheduling made easy

Reviewed 5 years ago

We have been using OpenSimSim for over a year now and all my colleagues love it. I used to get my schedule emailed to me, then I'd put it on my work Outlook calendar, then I'd put it in my Google calendar. Now I just open the app to view my schedule. It's half the work I used to do!

Pros

Having an app to view your work schedule is an awesome idea. You get updates when new schedules are posted or modified.

Cons

Can't see who is working if you are scheduled off for a day.

Great, but slow

Reviewed 5 years ago

So far OpenSimSim has been a mixed bag. When it works well it's a fantastic software. When it doesn't work well it's absolutely frustrating to deal with. We used OpenSimSim so that way if people needed to be able to switch shifts or request time off there was a place where these requests were stored and could be accepted or declined. Our old program was all manual so it's a big help being able to see who can work and who can't all at once.

Pros

I like that it's easy to see when you and/or your peers work on the web version of opensimsim. It's easy to set-up for your work weeks too so it'll accurately show how many hours you're getting in a week, and it being easy to customize is a nice feature too.

Cons

Sending messages to your peers is really slow. Even with a perfect connection it might take serveral (1-5 minutes) to send a message. Also, there was a problem my peers and I had with signing into OpenSimSim. I wish they had a feature to upload your schedule to a third party app such as Google Calendar or being able to do it on your phone using your Apple calendar. So that way my spouse and I can plan around my schedule. Another con is that it'll automatically sign you out every week. We had assigned computers at work so having to sign into my computer every single day is a waste of time.

Odd functionality

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

UI is easy to understand and accessibility on both mobile and desktop is really nice. I'm constantly referencing my phone to check when other employees are going to be working so I know how to balance the workload and who to send tickets to. I work in I.T., so knowing who is working when is really important for handling clients requests quickly. OSS is easy to navigate.

Cons

There are several discontinuities in the functionality. I can view other workers schedules on desktop, but ONLY on days when I'm working. But on my phone, I can view other workers schedules throughout the whole week by turning my phone on its side. It really doesn't look great to have my phone out while at work, so this is frustrating. Additionally, requesting time off and changing individual availability...

OpenSimSim for the win!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I think that the business I work at has benefited from OpenSimSim when it comes to communication. We are easily able to request off and put in our availability. We are also able to easily communicate in the messaging section of the application.

Pros

My favorite thing about OpenSimSim is the mobile app. It is very accessible at home and on the go, so if I need to ask off really quickly, this application lets me do so efficiently. another aspect of this application that I really like is that it is easy to maneuver through the app and I am able to understand where I need to go to do something.

Cons

I don't think that there is anything I do not like. However, it would be neat to be able to see what reason you put down for asking off (on a computer) after you submit it. I am able to see that on my phone, but not the computer.

An incredible piece of software that has improved the ease of scheduling and enhanced communication.

Reviewed 7 years ago

It gives me freedom to do scheduling anywhere, and make changes instantly while alerting the staff.

Pros

I enjoy that I can alert my staff instantly of schedule changes, and that the staff can request shift adjustments and have conflicts resolved immediately. Shift opportunities are very helpful, along with the ability to drag and drop, copy and move shifts. Messaging has come in very handy, along with knowing when staff has seen the changes in scheduling. Great work.

Cons

I would like to see the ability for the manager to remove or Undo "Time-Off requests" approvals. Sometimes scenarios change or the employees change their mind and don't remove their request. It may be wise to have an "are you sure?" confirmation dialog when removing a worker.

Scheduling & Sharing Made Easy

Reviewed 4 years ago

This software is very easy to use. It allows me to schedule employees on days when they absolutely must be here, offer up optional shifts, and immediately tells employees that a new schedule has been published (this has dramatically reduced the amount of texts I get at 10:30 Sunday night asking when an employee is scheduled to work). Employees also have the option to request days off, mark days they're absolutely unavailable, and send messages through the app. It's really nice to be able to communicate with a whole team with very little effort.

Pros

This software is very easy to use. It allows me to schedule employees on days when they absolutely must be here, offer up optional shifts, and immediately tells employees that a new schedule has been published (this has dramatically reduced the amount of texts I get at 10:30 Sunday night asking when an employee is scheduled to work). Employees also have the option to request days off, mark days they're absolutely unavailable, and send messages through the app.

Cons

The app can be flakey at times, and doesn't always notify me as the scheduler of changes. Time-off requests don't always show up immediately, and messages can be easily missed.

Fantastic and has been faltless so far.

Pros

This software has enabled us to ensure our staff know when they need to be at work and the ability for them to swap and take up extra shifts whilest not blownig out our budget for wages.

Cons

Nothing that jumps to mind. I could be under using the software but the ability to have reminder push notifications that a shift is the next day would be handy.

Ease of use

Reviewed 6 years ago

It's been helpful to just send a weekly schedule instead of printing and distributing a copy to each employee, it saves me a lot of time and paper

Pros

I like the easy setup and functions/tools when it comes to scheduling.

Cons

It would be nice to have a finger print function for login
