App Reviews

  • This App Makes My Scheduling Easy!

    By T. M. Yarrow
    Before the small company I work for got The When I Work app, we coordinated regular schedules and shift changes by email correspondence. It worked all right, but the managers had a lot of work to do in keeping up with changes in shifts. And as our company expands, their work increased. With this app, we are avoiding mix-ups and can post last-minute or long-term swaps or drops in shift hours, and have everyone literally on the same page with our scheduling. It makes it much easier for both workers and managers. The Work Chat feature is excellent for two reasons: explanations and details can be shared regarding schedule issues, and it provides a way for us as a company team to keep our personal way of being in touch with one another, as we used to have with our old email system. I also love the flexibility of the notifications in this app. I can choose the way I want to be notified of scheduled time or changes. This makes it really effective for keeping up to date on my hours.
  • Availability no longer usable

    By El Deano
    I am an MFA student, so being able to set my availability for different parts of the year is incredibly important. With the old version, this was incredibly easy to do. I was able to set different availabilities for different parts of the year, set when they started and ended, and add names and descriptions for each, making it easy for both me and my employer. But since the new update, that is impossible. The interface for availability has become confusing, and setting specific dates is no longer apparently possible. Any change made to a specific day is applied to all dates indefinitely, regardless of what the starting date or end date is set as. It is effectively impossible to set an availability beyond the current week, an even then it must be entered day-by-day using a calendar. This is unacceptable. I have no choice but to use this app, since my employer set it up, and now I have to submit my availability by hand and hope it’s respected. This may actually cost me shifts in the long run, since my employer is already inflexible with the schedule as it is. I imagine I’m not the only user in this situation. Please return the availability menu back to its previous, usable form.
  • Awful!!

    By Kylie1999
    Usually I don’t leave reviews on apps but for this app I need it for work and it’s glitches has created complications for my every day life. I updated the app and when I reopened it kicked me out of my work group. I tried to log back in and it said find a workplace and I typed in my job and it said it was waiting for approval from my manager but the same email that said I was waiting for approval is the email where I get notifications from this app saying my schedule as if I am already in the group even though when I go into the app it says it kicked me out. it’s super Frustrating because when I go in the app I can see my self as one of my coworkers like it’s two separate profiles even though it’s the same email and same profile which makes no sense. This is an app I need to see my schedule for work and to see my work chat for work updates finally my manager had to except the request that made it look like I was a separate profile but I have only signed up with one email and it’s the same email I used for them to accept me back in. So we had to start all over and I can’t see my past schedule or my hours but I can see my other profile that apparently doesn’t exist anymore
  • I can't see history as of yesterday

    By hughescloset
    I work for a major airlines and we use this app to track our shift drop split and trade we also use the history to keep track of who we picked up because w have to note it the day we work. As of yesterday. The history is not there for us. We deleted and reinstalled still not working please fix asap Also are team is large and we drop pick up swap and split a lot. Daily we have to put who we are working for. Can there be an added feature that when we pick up a shift that there is another line stating who we are working for it will eliminate a lot of issues for teammates and add the capabilities for teammates to add personal notes to a work schedule as a personal reminder. Right now it's only a supervisor feature. It will help teammates when we need to remind ourself for future task in one place. Thank you in advance
  • Fantastic company & Scheduling Service!

    By DarcInGA
    One of my clients has been using this service for almost a month now. They provide hands on training, which really gives you a quick-start boost to getting your company online. That being said, it is REALLY easy to use and gives you the option of publishing your shifts live, or just keeping them where you can work with them until the time is right to publish live! You can create recurring schedules, one time schedules, you can color coordinate different departments, communicate with all your people in one place, and send out individual message or blast messages! It really is an amazing service! And very reasonably priced! The only room for improvement I will say is the phone app. It is stupendous on a computer, but the phone app does need some visual improvements. But it definitely does what you need it to do! I love it!
  • Post and Pray Method is Out the Door!

    By Less Mush
    I manage a small swim club with approximately 27 staff members. I was using MS Publisher to type up a schedule, hang it on the wall and pray people showed up for shifts and had shifts covered when needed. The problems came when the guards started texting me to swap shifts and I couldn't keep track of it. WhenIWork has saved my life! I am able to develop a schedule, post it and the guards can swap away because the can only swap with other guards holding the same certifications! I no longer stress that there will be missed shifts, confusion about when to work and failure to cover for people! The app also helps me manage payroll to insure I stay within budget! I can't run the club without this app. I can't say enough great things about the support team and the ease of use. Download it! You won't regret it!
  • New update is TERRIBLE

    By Rusty728
    Before, creating my schedule and setting my availability was a breeze! I could switch it whenever school was in session or vice verse. I could even set a preference for being unavailable twice in one day, or set my availability for a certain time span up until a specific date. Now it is on a weekly basis - terrible idea. For example, for Friday I am available all day. But now, I want to make my Friday’s unavailable to work from 5pm-12. When I try and input this, it keeps telling me it’s “conflicting with another day.” This is absolutely absurd! It’s not conflicting with another day because I don’t care about future dates, I want it to be consistent every Friday now! Now I have to delete my entire availability schedule for each day just to change ONE availability for any day. It’s ridiculous. PLEASE undo this. Or at least give each person an option. Maybe it’s a glitch because being a 19 year old, completely understanding technology, me nor my coworkers the same age as me can figure this out.
  • Ok

    By Clockwork Orangutan
    I had a bad initial experience; but, after deleting and reloading the app, it Almost became useable. My main suggestion now would be to change the placement/color of the Clock in/clock out button, and the Take Shift button. They are the same and easily confused in haste. I picked up a shift unintentionally, because I was trying to clock in. The app froze...couldn’t clock in. Back out and came back in...pushed the button. Apparently came back to a different screen and ended up signing up for a shift that I didn’t want. Another update: received notification that the schedule for the upcoming week was released...so contractors can pick up time blocks. I cannot see any of them. Next week is blank. In fact, every day is blank. I’ve never been able to access this to sign up for blocks. Ever. Which means I can’t get priority on the jobs. In case I’m just missing something, I tried their tutorial videos...and what do you know?...they don’t play. None of them. Every one is a black screen. Well done.
  • Multi Store Manager

    By Val C
    I love this app , it's very useful for our business , helps tracking where people log in or out ,and it lets you know when someone forgot to clock in as well. We've been having problems for a while with it logging users out but i think that got fixed , the only thing that's not really convenient with the new update is the filter when wanna check out the schedule for a certain location , i think the old way was way more convenient especially when you have access to multiple locations it will show you all of the locations at once ... it's kinda of a mess ! wish you guys went back and eliminate that filter , other than that's it's a great tool !
  • The new “My Availability” section is terrible

    By brunocdeo
    We use When I Work in our college to manage student employees. They used to set up an “Availability” calendar based on each semester and whenever they require a change in schedule, we just would have them to either request time off or create a new availability for that period. The old Availability system allowed then to do that very quickly since you graphically visualize your week, but now we have to add slot by slot in a very complicated way. I understand that the new system would probably serve occasion when the employees will have a different schedule every week, but I honestly think this is a minority among When I Work users. I think it would be great to have both new and old systems working together.
