Overall, it's easy and convenient to use and cheaper than some of the similar apps.
You can work from the website or from the app which is convenient if you're bouncing between locations. On the website, I can preset shift times for faster scheduling. You can set multiple roles which is beneficial for staff that do multiple things. You can assign an hourly to each role as well, so you can see an approximation of your labor for the week.
Unfortunately, the preset shift times do not translate over to the app so you do have to manually do it which takes a little more time. Although I have my preference set to get push notifications for almost all the app features, they don't always come through.
Thanks for the review Jayelynn! We appreciate your feedback and love hearing that 7shifts can help you keep your schedules straight from anywhere. I've passed along your request regarding preset shifts on the app to our mobile development team for further consideration. Thank you!
7shifts is one of several scheduling software options that allows you to have transparency in calculating hours and costs. It's a strong communication tool to send out information in addition to creating schedules for employees. The setup is easy, maintenance is seamless, and the visibility into costs is very helpful in making decisions.
7shifts makes communication too easy, something that can be abused by both management and the team. When people can chat too easily, they will often abuse the system--something that was avoidable in the pen and paper days.
Thanks for the review Kumar! We are happy to hear that you find 7shifts a great tool for helping to manage your labor costs, budgeting, and communications. And that is great feedback regarding our chat functionality I will make sure a member of our team follows up with you to show you how you can set it up to remove the 'noise' from your team. All the best!
It is easy to use and someone is always there to help if we have questions, comments or concerns. It has made scheduling easier on us and our staff. Everything is right there on your phone.
We have 50+ employees at our restaurant. It used to be difficult looking up everyone's availability and time off. Now with just a mouse click everything you need to know about each individuals availability and time off is at your finger tips. It saves our management team so much time!
When you decline a request off and put in a reason why we can not figure out how the staff member sees those. It's most likely us and user error?
Thanks for the review Mallory!
