Good if you need basic, cheap software; a joke otherwise

Comments: I had a love/hate relationship with it. It was easy to log in and out, the basis of the system to track employee hours. Many times in 2016/2017, the software wouldn't read those clicks though, so myself or colleagues would be working for several hours or off work for several hours only to realize our logging in or out hadn't took. Then we'd have to bother our boss to do it, who was hostile about doing so. Having worked in tech, I understand bug issues, but this is a big one to have. The software is affordable, which is why our company chose it. If the bug issues were resolved for good, I'd feel more confident recommending it.

Pros: I liked that the buttons were big and accessible and easy to see, and that they later modified different types of clocking in and out (lunches, etc). When they updated the software, you could tell they tried (and succeeded, partially) in simplifying some of the screens for users.

Cons: Past versions of Dayforce would freeze up a bit. Also, any time anything went wrong (sometimes a log in or out didn't take, sometimes a time would need to be edited) the manager or boss would have to personally modifying these issues. Under good management, this wouldn't be an issue. Under bosses who can barely handle stress and take systems errors out on their employees, it's a complete nightmare situation. This is where Dayforce could really look beyond coding issues and consider how to socially engineer better customer service solutions so even technically challenged supervisors can use the system easily.

Dayforce is a convenient application that helps manage employees with their scheduling.

Comments: It was a convenient way to see my hours and my earnings at work. It was easy to see important information quickly and conveniently.

Pros: The application is super simple and easy to use. The sign-up is based on the information provided by managers and once logged in, the application is secure and has a easy to use interface. The work calendar is simple and shows what the schedule is and what the employee's shift is. Every action in the app makes sense and the menus are descriptive to what they do.

Cons: The manager has to properly setup Dayforce or the application is essentially useless. The application is basic and has the necessary features, but it is missing customization for more advanced setups. The application is missing push notifications for important reminders and requires an outside calendar application for reminders.

Comments: This has been a great product

Pros: This product has been a HUGE help in our offices going paperless. Before there was SO much filing and tracking down documents...and now we are able to just go an employee's page and look at what documents are uploaded.

Cons: There are a few quirks when it comes to using this product on Chrome. But there are ways to work around them.

Pros: I love that I can clock in and out from my smartphone rather than having to clock in and out at work.

Cons: It's difficult to clock in or out or make any changes when there isn't good cell service or wifi.

Comments: For the business, it was great to have payroll tied in with other functions. However, the security involved meant that there were a lot of menus to go through for the average employee to get the information they needed. Perhaps it was a poor set-up choice by the IT management, but it left a questionable taste in my mouth for Dayforce.

Pros: I liked how much horsepower Dayforce had. A lot of data across the organization's departments was integrated, and I never saw glitches or crashes, it was quite impressive.

Cons: The controls and menus, especially for end users, were vast and difficult to navigate. The learning curve was steep, and I found customer service on the slow side.
