Pro outfit! Worth every penny!

2019-02-13

The functionality is great from a single location standpoint, but going multi location, the dashboard was great interface was great.

Pros

Easy access to multi location, great reporting tools with fully integrated labor financials.

Cons

That currently we do not have a POS that integrates with Schedulfly, but we are picking up a new POS that will, and excited to see the full integration.

Leigh Lockwood

By far the best I have ever used....

2018-11-05

All shift changes are approved by management via smartphone or computer and real time alerts are sent out.

Pros

You could have a flip phone from 2008, have no fear...Schedulefly is going to still send you real time notifications and send real time notifications to the management team.

Cons

The only thing I wish was that Schedulefly had more of a following. They put HotSchedules to shame, Schedulicity to shame, etc. Unfortunately, both of those software systems tend to be used more which I think is a shame.

Simply Amazing!

2019-01-17

In the years that we have used the system, we have called about 4 times, not for issues, but for adding a location, or asking for a little guidance on a report. Each call was answered by one of the guys and they were very pleased to talk with us, and guide us int the right direction.

Pros

Value-added reports, team messaging, system dashboard for all locations, post to one or all locations.

Cons

Honestly, I haven't found an issue with the service

Amazing customer support, easy to use, intuitive.

2018-05-21

Pros

Does one thing and does it well which is scheduling. So it's not bloated with add-on features or functionality making it simple to use even for non-tech savvy users.

Cons

Navigating dates in the reports screen takes too many steps.

Amazing Product

2018-10-31

As such, the time spent by management on scheduling has decreased dramatically.

Pros

Everything! The system is perfect for our use in contacting employees and scheduling them.

Cons

I have found nothing about this system that I dislike. However, it would be nice to be able to embed photos. I may simply not know how to do this, but would like to be able to let m y staff see actual promotional pieces and photos of specials etc.

No Nonsense Solution

2018-11-26

Employees can connect directly and the manager is not spending time fixing scheduling conflicts.

Pros

The interface for our business managers and staff is concise, easy to use and mobile friendly.

Cons

If there was more integration with our POS that would be beneficial.

We have been able to lower labor cost, increase the ease of distribution of training documents, communicate with staff members on an official platform, and made scheduling easy!

Schedulefly Scheduling Software

2018-11-13

We have transitioned away from it (or are in the process of transitioning) to a new piece of software with greater reporting capacity.

Pros

Schedulefly is easily readable and provides decent scheduling and flexibility. The communication component and ability to attach files is helpful.

Cons

Schedulefly's reporting functionality is limited.

Monen Family Restaurant Group

2018-12-17

Overall , it is very easy and helps me be able to create a schedule quickly and efficiently.

Pros

Very user friendly for staff to figure out how to use!

Cons

I would like to be able to create new shift "in" times in real time rather than having to exit the schedule I am currently working on and go back to the page to add in a whole new shift time.

Response from Schedulefly


Patience, thank you for the nice review! We've got an easy shortcut for you for your mobile device. Shoot us a note to support@schedulefly.com and we'll show you. Also, your employer has a setting in place preventing shift trades within 24 hours. That setting can be changed by them to enable same-day shift trades.
Thanks!

Employee Scheduling software for a budget that works

2019-04-27

For bottom dollar, it is a very good option. Much better than paper and pencil. Solid communication platform for staff too. Great entry level for someone with minimal needs

Pros

Very easy to use for managers and staff.

Cons

No app available which isn’t a deal breaker but at the time website was not optimized for mobile browsing

Observations

2020-02-19

The software helps us keep all scheduling in line while ensuring our employees are responsible for their own time off requests and pick up needs.

Pros

I like being able to have a view of a schedules draft while being able to edit. It is also helpful they do not need to be both set to the same position.

Cons

It would also be helpful to have shift swaps made clear, separate from shift pick ups. The mobile version of the site doesn't allow me to see a quick view of the schedule for the day of the pick up request.

This was a very positive experience. It was easy to make schedules.

Pros

This was a really user-friendly system to request time off, and view the schedule for the upcoming week.
