The recent updates to the mobile app are great! It’s so convenient for managers to be able to make last minute schedule changes from anywhere and instantly update the staff. The whole team loves having access to up-to-the-minute schedules. It’s been a game changer for us!
The last update that changed the weekly schedule view to a month view is horrible. You now have to select each day instead of seeing everything for a week. This makes planning around a work schedule more difficult and irritating. Please either bring back the week view or give it back to us as an option to select to view as that weekly portion in order to fix this issue.
Why did you choose to update this app and make it completely unfriendly to the user? It makes no sense what so ever. I can no longer see everyone’s schedule, which is a vital component of my job function. The previous version was easy to use, view, and navigate. Bring the old one back.
This app used to allow me to see a week at a glance … now it shows a month at a time with a dot on the day indicating that I am scheduled to work or that I asked off. It was OK to add that function, but not if it means losing the week at a glance.
I’m not able to see my coworkers schedule. I’m order to see if we can switch with each other we need to see everyone else schedule. I like the fact we can see the whole month but if I’m not seeing my coworkers schedule I rather the old one.
I am not sure how much money my employer is spending for this scheduling software, but whatever it is, I am sure it is too much for what you get. I will say it is nice to be able to see not only your schedule, but who you work with. But it just will not work for some companies. I will explain a huge issue I see with this app. Now it may work for businesses who work 9a-5p, or a day and afternoon shift with no night shift. It is not going to work for night shifts who also work overtime. I work in a 911 center, so obviously we are staffed 24/7. We have a lot of overtime. Now we work 7a-3p, 3p-11p, 11p-7a. If i want to know what I work on say July 15th and I am on midnight shift, I get on the app or website, look at “midnights” and then look for my name. Now normally this would say 11p-7a if I did not have any overtime. Now if I did have overtime from 7a-11a so I was working 11pm on July 15th and the morning of July 16th staying over until 11a, I would have to check my schedule for July 16th, even though it is the same shift from July 15th. Apparently there is no way to keep the overtime hours on the same day when it runs over in to a new day. Does not make sense to me considering my midnight shift is 11p-7a, so technically shouldn’t the app says July 15th I am working 11p-12a and then the next day, July 16th, say I am working 12a-7a since 12am starts a new day?
The developer hasn't updated since it's initial release in 2014 and there's only the bare minimum of functionality. You'll only be able to see one day at a time for multiple employees or a list of a week's worth of shifts for yourself. There's no calendar view, no notifications for messages or changes, no interface for managers, no integration with iOS's native calendar or Google calendar. There's only the minimum of effort applied to the app for the developer to say they HAVE an app. On a related note, if you or your business has the option to use a different vendor entirely, it would be worth it. The overall user experience for the main web interface is a pain and unnecessarily hard to use as a manager and view as an employee. The best thing I can say about it is that using the Web interface on an iPhone is painful enough to use this app, but only because it's literally only better than nothing.
Why would any company use this scheduling system is hard to understand. This "app" is just the same as a mobile web version. No new features. No innovative ideas. No way to "save" your schedule. Want to sync to google calendar to push to your iPhone? Nope. Want to a text message or email to tell you the daily assignment? Nope. Want to see a month view like on the desktop? Nope. Want ease in scheduling your employees and their daily assignments? Nope. ***To Atlas Software: if you are going to spam your app reviews with bogus 5-star ratings then at least make sure they can write correctly in English! ***
We use ScheduleAnywhere online and have for years. It's not the most elegant but it has features we haven't found anywhere else- even on very expensive scheduling programs. But this app- doesn't work at all. I hope they get it fixed because I've been hoping they would develop an ipad/ iphone version. It would also be nice if their scheduling program synced with our personal calendars. But that's another story.
I'm puzzled by the antipathy exhibited in some of the other reviews. This is a basic, straightforward app that allows me to check my work schedule from, yes, anywhere. From where I sit, it does what it's supposed to do.
Cant even log into our businesses scheduling system. The web version and mobile web version works, but this app is clearly a mis-guided after thought. No way to select the database to connect to so the generic one does not recognize my user ID. This is a DOA application. Don't waste your effort. The originator would require way too much hand holding.
This app being read-only is very frustrating. The whole point of being mobile is being able to update on the fly. Also, I work in an organization that has more than 150 employees in a single schedule. It’s virtually impossible to go through that on this interface.
Yeah, it shows you your schedule. That is ALL it does. I would have loved for it to sync with my iOS calendar so I don’t have to check an app every day. I should just get an alert through my phone that I have to work at a certain time. At least the app was free. I’d want a refund if it wasn’t.
The only thing this app is good for is looking at the schedule. The problem is, it doesn't scroll far enough to see everyone on my company's schedule. I can only see about the top 10. Might as well log in through the website.
This is nothing more than a web shortcut to their "mobile" version which is horrible anyway. There should be a month view like the full website. The app can't even remember your username and password. Complete garbage.
