Pros: We have been using the paper attendance calendars from HR Direct for a few years now. I received an ad for the online app version and thought I would give it a try since the price for the paper calendars is pretty much the same. It's easy to enter the employee information and enter the time off information. Each employee calendar can be downloaded and/or printed for the employee. It saves paper and makes updating and reviewing attendance with employees a little more convenient. It is also much faster to pull up a calendar on the screen than having to go through a binder with lots of other calendars in it.

Cons: There are only two categories for time off, vacation and sick time or PTO. We have vacation, sick and personal time. You also have to make the deductions of days off yourself. It doesn't deduct them automatically as you enter the time that's taken by the employee. So, you have to be mindful that you are deducting as you go along. There is a component to this app that is supposed to be launched later for employees to send you their time off requests. when they can just send me an email. I would use it if it came with the calendar app, but for another fee, it's a little too much, especially for a smaller office.

Overall: It saves me time and paper using this version, rather than the paper calendar.

Wish I could have had a free trial of the Attendance app before purchasing

Pros: This software would be good for small businesses if you track vacation/sick time by the calendar year. Nice interface.

Cons: No option to track time off based on hire/anniversary date. No feature to have more than one vacation policy or ability to choose a vacation policy per employee.
