Good PTO and Org chart

Great overall, haven't had any issues with it.

Pros

Putting in PTO and viewing my company's org chart is really easy, never had any issues

Cons

Booking PTO over a holiday can sometimes be confusing. I wish the holidays were grayed out on the calendar or something.

Thanks for the feedback and review! We'd love to talk to you more about your holiday comment if possible. Holidays don't require any special effort on your part; you simply submit your time off request and if it spans a holiday, that day doesn't deduct any hours from your account. If you have any questions at all about this we'd love to talk with you!

Very Convenient

My experience using Built for Teams is very convenient. For, it allows ME to keep track of all the days I've already used and how much you have remaining.

Pros

I like that you can log into your account and request days off. Whether, you're currently at work or home.

Cons

That it does not allows you to carry over your personal days. Only your vacation days. If they did that would be awesome!

Response from Built for Teams of Objective

Replied December 2018

Shaniel, thanks for taking time to post this review for us! Regarding carry over of personal days, Built for Teams CAN do that but it sounds like your account administrators have chosen to not allow it. Bummer! For each type of time off (vacation, personal, etc.) the administrators can configure a bunch of settings including whether or not carry over is allowed at the end of the year. Feel free to ask your account administrators if they'd like to allow carry over of personal days. Built for Teams can do it if they choose to allow it!

Best PTO software

Pros

Easy to use, no more awkward chats with the higher-ups when you're trying to take some time off.

Cons

I have no prior experience with any other PTO software, so nothing.

Built for Teams is a great tool!

When we switched from Paycor in the beginning of the year, balances were way off and employees had lost trust in the process. Now, employees know how much PTO they have and trust the HR team to keep everything accurate.

Pros

Ease of use on employer and employee side. Balances are accurate.

Cons

The org chart feature doesn't work well for us.

Response from Built for Teams of Objective

Replied December 2018

Emily, I'm happy to read that we've been able to help employees trust your HR team again! Accuracy is critical to us and we've gone to extensive measures to make sure our product is accurate even in "edge case" scenarios that cause problems in other systems. I would love to talk more about the org chart feedback you posted. Do you mind telling me a bit more about what it is that isn't working well for you in that area of the product?

Primarily using for PTO

Good, easy to use. Nice way to keep track of exact amount of PTO used/avail.

Pros

Ease of use - I use this software mostly to track PTO. It is easy to see what time is available for the year and I like that it outlines what you have used and what is upcoming.

Cons

I have no complaints about this software.

Built for Teams

Pros

Built for teams is a convenient tool for visualizing team PTO and related statistics.

Cons

For larger teams, the calendar becomes quite crowded, making it impossible to find individuals. The calendar can also take a while to load.

Response from Built for Teams of Objective

Replied December 2018

Benjamin, thank you for the review and feedback! Regarding the crowded calendar view, are you taking advantage of the calendar filter feature that allows you to only view the group of people of your choosing? That can be a huge help for larger companies like yours and also makes the calendar load faster. If you need any help using that feature please let us know!

Tomeka, we appreciate you making time to review Built for Teams. It's always helpful to hear what customers think and to find out what we're doing well and where we could improve. It's definitely possible that your computer could be causing the slowness, but it's good for us to see if there are ways we can speed things up for you too. As you use the product over the next week or so, do you mind making a note as to whether it's a certain page that is slow? Or does it just seem slow everywhere?

Simple and Easy for Employees

Pros

The ease of use and the automation - It automatically reports the request to proper contacts and keeps track of everything for you. From an employee point of view it has been incredible and the platform is very user friendly.

Cons

You need admin in order to cancel a request or delete already approved hours.

Response from Built for Teams of Objective

Replied December 2018

Hi Michael! Thanks for the helpful review of Built for Teams. If we're helping to automate things and simplify things for you, then we feel like we're doing our job. Regarding the note about cancelling or deleting an approved request, we actually do have a setting that your administrators can change that will allow employees to cancel/delete their own requests after they've been approved. If this setting is enabled and a person cancels a request, a notification would then be sent to the person who approved the request, so that everyone is aware of the cancellation. I'd suggest talking to one of your admins to see if they'd be willing to change that setting in your company's account. If they have any questions about how to do that we'll be happy to help.

Such a great use for company calendars!

Pros

I love the feature that we can see PTOs, WFH, birthdays, and work anniversaries. To my knowledge, I do not know if we can export it to GMail. So that would be a plus!

Cons

I do not like the the org chart. The UI is not attractive and, in turn, would make the UX better.

Thanks for the review, Michelle! I'm happy to hear that these features have been helpful.

Other customers seem to love it so I'd like to learn what it is that you think could be improved. Customer feedback is always welcome!

PTO Tracking and Management

I would mention it to others, but wouldn't recommend or not recommend. I am not sold on it.

Pros

Very simple product to track PTO and Sick Days.
Decent Web Interface and small app to request time off.

#1 Pro - Cheap

Cons

It is very restrictive. The ical feeds don't work well on Mac. The way they handle everything according to Org charts is very limiting. There are no notification rules (for instance notify 1 month out of employee annual review). It is very simplistic overall.

Thank you for posting a review. I'm sorry to hear the product isn't meeting your expectations and we'd love to talk further to see how we can help. Regarding the iCal feeds on Mac, we use them extensively on Macs as do many other customers and we've not experienced nor heard about any issues at all. So, let's talk and see how we can help you resolve any issues you are experiencing! Perhaps it would help to go over the functionality of the product with you; it's really quite powerful and flexible but perhaps there are features/capabilities you're as of yet unaware of?
