7 Shifts for restaurant schedule Management

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: My managers and employees love it.

Pros:

It is easy to use and anybody with a phone can have easy access to their schedule, send messages using it, and letting anybody know about changes. It is a very practical and professional tool for the schedules that we use in our Restaurant. We have the scheduling available on our P/R processor, but we prefer to pay for this service as it is more agile and practical than our P/R company.

Cons:

To be honest, I do not have any complaints, but we only use the scheduling module as we have other systems.

Thanks for the review Leandro! It's great to hear that even though you have the option, you see so much value in 7shifts that it goes above and beyond what is offered to you in your payroll provide. Know that we will always be looking to increase the value of our services for folks like yourself. Cheers!

Best scheduling / timesheet app to date!

5.0 last year

Comments: Support has been amazingly helpful and all around compassionate. Makes us happy to feel like we're a part of a community where our concerns are heard.

Pros:

Responsiveness. Ease of use. Employees not complaining for once!

Cons:

With scheduling, we have staff that want to have the same recurring shift week to week. This changes often so having a template for a time period versus just a person is proving difficult. Staff keep saying "but I thought that was my shift every week?" What's happening is, they offered their shift to someone else so when we copy the prior week to a new week, the wrong employee gets assigned the shift. This is getting hard to manage. Need the ability to print out day schedules the same way weekly ones look. We print our schedules out daily and assign breaks from them plus we leave notes about the day. Currently the only option to print a day view is in list mode and that does not show you visually where holes in scheduling are. We did find a way around it by printing the day view from the manager dashboard but that prints out the website not just the schedule. We close out pay periods but they are still just sitting there as open, so that's confusing. I wish we could name our group chats and create multiple versions with the same people. We like having group chats around topics to keep messages separate and easy to reference.

7Shifts simplified scheduling, switching shifts, and communication

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I was able to ensure that in the event I would need pick up a shift for more hours, or have someone else cover a shift for me, I could do that quickly and efficiently with the software.

Pros:

The ability to have a clear view of shifts for the week, as well as who I was scheduled to work with. I was also able to find co-workers contact info in case something came up and I needed to switch shifts. Very helpful.

Cons:

Not sure if anything was missing. We used a different software for payroll and time tracking, but even in 7 shifts I was able to see quickly the number of hours I was collectively scheduled for the upcoming week.

Alternatives Considered:

Helpful and Easy to Use

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Overall, it's easy and convenient to use and cheaper than some of the similar apps.

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.
