"Life saving experience. With 7shifts, your schedule is easily accessible. You do not have to worry about not being at work to see your schedule or forgetting because it reminds you. Also, it allows people to bit their shifts if they have a situation coming up. I like the fact that it is accessible on mobile so you don't have to necessarily be on a computer. time management for employee is the most important problem 7Shift solves. For managers, it's shows you who put their availabilities and if they don't, it shows to managers to ask them. Also it allows to have a global view of the schedule and what changed should me made"
"After the first week of scheduling, I knew that I'd do anything to convince my boss to keep using 7shifts. It takes the headache out of time off requests, availability and scheduling, by keeping everything in the same place and with an attractive and easy-to-use interface."
