Pros

After doing our research on many types of scheduling software, we have found that Sling best fit our needs through value, functionality, and amazing support.
I must say, I do wonder how long it will remain free. It's a great product and certainly deserving of a monthly cost affordable to small business as well as large corporations.
Being able to use the integrated time clock is also a great feature. There are just so many feature and customizations that it would be an asset for any type of business at any size.

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

Sling seemed to have constant problems loading, or randomly needing to reload, and then having troubles doing so.
My personal feelings after having to pay such high prices for cable channels on the market we just had to drop them. Someone told us about sling and to try it.
Sometimes to the shows wont work or keep loading. They wont play or keep glitching it says a error has occurred to try later.

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.
