App Reviews

  • Good app - I have suggestions

    By i<3glee :)
    Easy to use app, makes life so much easier to have your schedule and manipulate it easily. Three suggestions (requests to the developers actually): 1) allow people to create an auto pick-up from the "my schedule" page. It would be a LOT easier to create these when you can see the holes in your schedule (maybe even on the schedule page put "auto pick up set" for the shifts you're hoping to get?) 2) allow notifications for when a shift gets released that you're not already scheduled for. 3) when you're on the "my schedule" page and click on a specific shift, it shows you who is working that shift and who isn't (brilliant) BUT, from there, allow the option to send a message to ONLY the people working that shift (like - hey anyone want tonight off?) AND be able to send a message to ONLY the people not working that shift (ie. hey can someone work for me tonight) instead of having to go to the messages center, select individual people or blast everyone on the whole team. Thank you!
  • This app is great

    The reviewers who cavil about minutiae are probably unrealistic; what do you expect for $3? It’s a brilliant app, and well worth its price. I can see who isn’t working (to swap shifts), negotiate all sorts of deals, message w/o having a phone number, and managers can approve shifts IMMEDIATELY. I used to manage schedules new-old school with Excel. While HS’s features are still clunky, they’re an improvement in design and speed. I would hope at some point that HS would work in an algorithm to automate staff shift rotations, but with all these features, and for its current price, this app is well worth its value.
  • New update is terrible

    1
    By aeoklaroche
    I’ve been using this app for probably 4 years now for work... and It’s always been awesome until the latest update. Everything was so simple and easy to look at. Now, making your availability makes absolutely no sense. For some reason it says you can create different weekly availabilities for each day, and figuring out how to get my shifts I want has felt near impossible. This update has caused so many problems for me and my managers. I was scheduled outside of my availability last week and had to miss my night class to come into work. Why did the availability section have to change? I don’t understand. Why mess with a good thing. Please, for the sake of me and so many others change it back to the way it used to be. I’d be happy to leave an awesome review if you did lol.
  • It’s just a link to the desktop website

    By Chrisoka145
    I wasn’t going to buy this app because the website is actually quite good. Colleagues of mine said they loved it so I paid the $3. Once I logged in I first thought the app had redirected me to Safari and to the desktop version of the program, but quickly realized thats essentially what the app was... a link. I could very easily just make a shortcut for the website into an app for my iPhone for free. Seems amazing that there are still apps like this that haven’t been updated to be more user friendly for tablets and phones. I’ll probably still use the app because it’s a link to my schedule but I’m not happy about it. I’d give the program itself 5* but the app 1* so people can read what they’re actually getting for their money.
  • Thoughts of improvement

    By mkit816
    So my work uses hot schedules and it is one of the easiest apps to use. My managers recommended that I purchase the app and I recommend the same to all new hires. My reasoning for writing this review is to suggest that you show the scheduled hours for the work week for the employee, because I know for the manager side it does show that. My work wants us to be conscious of our own overtime and sometimes it hard to see if I’ll hit it if I pick up a released shift. It would be great if you guys added this to the next update 🙏🏻
  • It's great but one thing....

    By Allyssabradshaw
    It would be amazing if there were any option to see which employees are off for the whole day and not just AM or PM shifts. Everytime I need to check to see who's off, I have to keep switching back and for between shifts for that day just to see who's available to work. If we were to ever get an option like that, it would also be nice if there were any option to "message all who are available for shifts today". It would make functionality much easier! Other than that, no complaints 👏🏻
  • Mail feature needs work

    3
    By CreativeSoul76
    Seems like I never get notifications from the app itself. When my employer emails me, I get a notification from Gmail but not one from the HotSchedules app. I’ve gone into the settings for HotSchedules just to realize that every thing is activated to notify me, yet still it is not doing that. The little red bubble you see on most apps, that tells you how many emails you have waiting for before you even open up the app, doesn’t seem to exist on this app. It would be nice if they can make it have the same standard set of features that most other email applications out there have. Lastly, even after the app is open, the little envelope icon doesn’t indicate any difference at all. So an email could be waiting for you and you would never notice it. That icon should also have a number next to it letting you know how many new emails you have. Hope The team at HotSchedules finds this feedback useful, Cheers
  • Availability

    By Jillalien
    Hey! I would love if there was a way to schedule recurring availability complications, such as not being able to work until after 5 a few days of the week. Right now I can only make schedule adjustments for 4 different weeks, which is frustrating when I know I'm going to have the same days off x numbers of weeks in advance. Also, being able to edit the availability rather than having to delete it and redo it entirely anytime something comes up would be helpful.
  • Update

    By Twerkinwithbuddha
    Overall a great app but there was a recent update that won’t allow you to see released shifts on shifts that I have requested off. Just because I request off, doesn’t mean I may not change my mind and want to pick up a shift. I also wish there was full capability with the auto pickup feature. The desktop version allows you to customize which shifts, sections, and people you want to pick up from, but the app won’t let you!
  • Great app for work BUT

    By Gillianleighh
    I love this app! It’s easy to use and convenient. BUT to make it better, you should be able to combine schedules from different jobs. Or see both. I work for 2 companies that use this and it is so time consuming and annoying to have one schedule only on my browser, and one schedule in the app! Should make a way to view more than one schedule in the app!! Would make it so much easier and better.
