Pros: It easily integrated with our current workflow and has allowed us to manage and view our attendance and leaves status even when we are out of office. The admin dashboard is also very easy to use, and lets us add our leave types and quotas.

Cons: The documentation definitely could be better. When I first tested the app, I was not sure if somethings that we required were implemented. It was not until I talked to a attendenceBot representative that I knew they were there. In my initial experience I didn't even know there was an admin dashboard.

Overall: We previously has physical registers to mark attendances. But that never worked for us, we forgot writing and HR had to manually manage leaves. With attendenceBot, it has become really easy for us to manage attendance and leaves.

Pros: Our company has an "unlimited" vacation policy and AttendanceBot helps us track and make sure team members are actually taking time off. Our team is remote throughout the USA and having the ability to add it onto Slack is a dream come true. You never have to leave Slack to know where someone is, when they plan on taking leave, or even get a full report of the year.

We've also started using it to track time cards for our hourly paid interns and it's so easy for them to clock in because when they get to work the first thing they open is Slack. Then at the end of the month we just ask AttendanceBot for a time sheet.

It's easy to set up managers and their teams, then customize it to each teams' needs. In our case one team doesn't need approval for a day of working from home or taking leave, but another needs approval for all times they won't be in the office.

Their support has been easy to work with when I need to customize things or have a question. They usually send me a response within an hour or two.

Pricing is easy and simple too! We don't have to worry about our bill growing every month when we hire new team members.

Cons: Some of the FAQ is outdated and you have to contact support to get the latest commands for AttendanceBot, but I've never had trouble of getting ahold of support. You can even do it right from Slack.

In order to customize teams you have to customize each person's settings individually. There is a "company default", but anything the detours from that has to be inputted manually. If you have many people that need the be customized, it can be daunting.

Overall: Time tracking is easy and requesting time off is even easier. HR/operations don't have to manually track time off and there are no more emails requesting leave filling up managers' inboxes or getting lost.

Attendancebot streamlines time and team tracking within Slack - so easy!

Pros: Easy for employees to check in and out. In channel announcements of team status and clocking activity. minimal effort required to initialize the system and integrate with Slack.

Cons: Not enough personalization as far as different managers wanting to see different data. i.e. I have one manager who wants to be notified of his team's individual time clock transactions but the rest don't. I cannot accommodate him without bombarding the other managers with the same level of detail. I'd like to have each manager set his or her own notification settings.

We are happy to use AttendanceBot, it does a good job at automating many menial tasks!

Pros: Ease of use through Slack and clear communication about who is available and being able to request and manage leaves very easily!

Cons: Many functionalities in the dashboard don't really affect the use. Still a bit confusing when it comes to shift management and creating team profiles (start date, seeing punch in/out times, seeing leave history, etc)

Pros: People are able to log their appointments using natural language. you don't have to open a separate application

Cons: Appointments aren't really "leave" so it doesn't fit the paradigm well. and the Time Reporting options are byzantine and difficult to get just right.

Pros: We've been extremely impressed with AttendanceBot. It does exactly what we need, is easy to use and we found it to be very reasonably priced. It's a cleverly designed tool.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind. So far we've liked everything about the solution and even when we needed something new - we contacted them and they worked with us on it!

Pros: - Easy to use for the entire team right in Slack
- Announces attendance of the entire team everyday keeping everyone informed
- Great reporting for our monthly time sheet requirements
- Tracks very well the vacation time for all employees
- Configuration is very simple and easy from the management portal
- Customer service and support has been fantastic

Overall it is a great product for our needs and the team at Attendancebot have been very helpful with some enhancements for us.

Cons: The is not much to not like about the software.
Hoping attendancebot will soon also announce up coming birthdays to the team.

Overall: Attendancebot has replaced our cumbersome HR software which we only used to track team vacations, and replaced our manual timesheets we kept in excel for compliance. The cost is about the same but the time we save in keeping the records has been significantly reduced. The entire team loves using the application! It is awesome!

Pros: Nice integration with Slack + Google Calendar. Very simple for end-users to add and manage PTO. Support team has been pretty responsive to our needs.

Cons: Not as customizable as it could be - reports are somewhat limited and multi-level authorisations are not supported (ie, if first approver is unavailable, someone else can do it).

A great time-saver for your organisation!

Pros: Easy to use & to implement. Has a wide range of options to customize it to your organisation (country/office/leave types/etc...). Slack integration is a great advantage also.

Cons: It is a pity that we cannot import the list of public holidays from an excel/csv. For now we need to do it one by one, but hopefully it is a function that will be available in the future.

Simple and efficient product. Quick to cater and develop new features to your business needs!
