"Lots of features but easy to use"

Comments: I can log my work, sick days, vacations, and plan my calendar in a few clicks without disrupting my work. The app is very nice!

Pros: At my company, we work remotely and value our personal work/life balance. One of the features is the "Work Balance": I can quickly see how much time I've been working, the upcoming vacation days and holidays, and now I can plan better my own schedule. The time tracking feature is easy to input, we can note our breaks but we also have the setup that calculates it in case we forget. You can register sick dates and upload files related to it, so we don't have to wait to process it during hard times. Everything is in sync with the calendar, but my favorite feature is the sidebar, as it gives you a glance of the work balance hours and the vacation time. It's super easy to use and I know the HR team has everything organized in easy steps!

Cons: The only thing I'm missing is the auto-log hours. The feature is available, as one of the customer representatives from Papershift reached out to me once, but I'm not sure how to activate it. I guess I need to talk to the admin about that.

"Good Software for Owner"

Pros: The Shiftplan is very food to use. For Position Manager as well. Easy to configure

Cons: The Usability for Workers. It will be easier if workers can use a app and login without private mail account. Maybe Personal-ID oder personal Keyword. Not in a browser. In a Android or iOS app.

"Tolles Tool auch für kleine Unternehmen, um den Überblick zu behalten"

Comments: Wir können unsere komplette Urlaubs-Jahresplanung hier abbilden. Man kann Urlaubsansprüche auch in Stunden angeben und verrechnen lassen, das hilft beim Einsatz von Teilzeitmitarbeitern enorm, um alles sauber abbilden zu können. Die Mitarbeiter selbst haben auch einen besseren Überblick über ihre Arbeitszeiten, Zeiterfassung sowie ihren eingereichten oder bereits genommenen Urlaub. Meine Schichtplanung kann ich auch hierüber abbilden, bzw. den Vertretungsplan in der Urlaubszeit. Die Zeiterfassung hilft, Überstunden besser zu monitoren.

Pros: Den Mitarbeitern gefällt, dass sie ihre Arbeitszeiten auch über die App einsehen können. Für uns als Arbeitgeber entlastet es enorm bei der Schicht- und Urlaubsplanung sowie der Zeiterfassung. Die Urlaubsplanung kann nun in einem Tool für jeden sichtbar gemacht werden, ohne dass Zeiten bereits bestätigt werden müssen. Somit sehen die Kollegen, wo andere bereits Urlaub eingetragen haben.

Cons: Die Software ist für richtige Schichtbetriebe ausgelegt, Hauptaugenmerk Gastro, meines Erachtens. Das ist nicht immer kompatibel mit unseren "starren" Arbeitszeiten, es gibt aber gute Möglichkeiten auch das abzubilden. Die Darstellungsart der Wochenübersicht finde ich momentan noch nicht ideal, aber man kann sich behelfen mit Tags und verschiedenen Ansichten. Optimierungsbedarf gäbe es aus meiner Sicht beim Zurücknehmen von Urlauben, dass die Schichten wieder automatisch belegt werden. Auch bei der Anpassung von Arbeitszeiten und den dazugehörigen Sollstunden kommt es manchmal zu einem Durcheinander, wenn man nicht alle Eckpunkte bedenkt, da könnten Reminder helfen, das Ganze sauber neu aufzusetzen. Auch beim stundenweise Ausbuchen von Urlaub funktioniert die Zeiterfassung meines Erachtens nicht kompatibel. Aber das sind alles Kleinigkeiten, die man manuell trotzdem abbilden kann. Man muss aber höllisch aufpassen, dass es dann bei allen noch stimmt, bei 10 Mitarbeitern mag das noch überblickbar sein, bei mehr Mitarbeitern stelle ich mir das schwierig vor.

Hallo Monika,
vielen Dank fur Deine Bewertung.
Leider wei? ich nicht genau, welche Schwierigkeiten Ihr mit "starren" Arbeitszeiten habt, vielleicht kannst Du mir dazu noch weitere Infos geben oder Du meldest Dich nochmal bei unserem Support, die Kollegen haben sicherlich noch ein paar Tipps fur Dich. Bezuglich der Darstellung in der Wochenansicht, hast Du denn schon die anderen Ansichten ausprobiert (uber das Zahnrad rechts oberhalb des Kalenders)?
Auch fur Deine anderen Themen, etwa die stundenweise Verrechnung von Urlaub wurde ich Dir gerne einen Termin mit meinen Kollegen empfehlen. Schreib uns dazu am besten einfach im Chat an.

"Good but not good enough."

Comments: The operation of Papershift is not intuitive. You have to work with it for a long time so that all functions become clear.

Pros: - Time span freely selectable in 'evaluation' & 'time tracking'.
- Search function in 'vacation' & 'time tracking'.

Cons: - No public holidays will be displayed.
- Over time is onely available via 'user' -> 'evaluation'. No 'button' on the left side.
- Calendar/ overview with holiday of colleagues is hidden.

Vendor Response

by Papershift on 28/05/2019

Hello Christian,
thank you for your review.
We appreciate your feedback (positive and negative). Regarding the cons you mentioned:
Public holidays should be marked in the calendar (blue font and a note with the holiday) and in the evaluation (blue "f" button).
We are currently working improving the employee dashboard (top button) and will most likely incorporate the overtime there.
Absences from your colleagues can be viewed in the calendar view (calendar icon with an x) unfortunately in the mobile view this icon will not show at the moment. If you have any further questions you can always contact our support team.

Thanks again for using Papershift.
Best wishes.
Kevin from Papershift.

"erfüllt die Anforderungen"

Pros: - Exportfunktion in Excel/PDF
- schnelles "Tauschen" der Mitarbeiter

Cons: - die zuletzt verwendete Auswahl wird beim nächsten Login nicht übernommen
- Schichten an einem können nur alphabetisch, nicht aber zeitlich sortiert werden

Hallo Ralf,
vielen Dank fur Deine Bewertung. Leider verstehe ich nicht genau, was Du mit "die zuletzt verwendete Auswahl wird beim nachsten Login nicht ubernommen" meinst. Aber bezuglich der zeitlichen Sortierung kann ich Dir vielleicht helfen: Wenn Du im Dienstplan die Ansicht wechselst zu "Wochenansicht: Stunden" (uber das Zahnrad rechts oberhalb des Kalenders), werden die Schichten nach ihrer Startzeit sortiert (Sortierung nach Endzeit ist ebenfalls moglich uber das Zahnrad).
Ich hoffe, ich konnte Dir damit helfen.
