Pros

MakeShift has significantly improved my scheduling experience offering ease of use and implementation. We predominantly apply MakeShift for our temporary workforce and contractors. I employ it to construct and disseminate schedules whether spanning weeks months or a specific number of days and it proves highly userfriendly. This approach allows me to effortlessly view staff schedules in realtime tailored to my preferences. I particularly value this software for its mobile accessibility realtime updates scheduling capabilities communication features and its integration with ADP.

Cons

I'd appreciate MakeShift making further improvements in terms of ADP integration even though it's currently performing well and effectively fulfilling its role. While there are a few minor glitches they don't significantly affect productivity. Additionally the ability to leave a comment when making a bid or trade on a shift would be a valuable addition.

Pros

Identifying open shifts and their assigned employees is an effortless task.

Cons

It would be highly beneficial to have the option to leave a note when bidding on a shift especially in special circumstances like partial availability or potential overtime. The inability to do so can be quite frustrating necessitating email communication with a scheduler before bidding in such situations.
