Easy to use but the function is limited

It is easy to use, when the function is there. But really, it is so limited. Hopefully, it can allow me to do more.

Pros

I use both ADP and Dayforce. There seems no much difference between them. I don’t prefer either. For Dayforce, I like it most is it is straigt forward to use, when the function is there.

Cons

I don’t like the software is the function is so limited and restricted. I cannot change direct deposit; cannot change W2 form; even cannot update my personal information like phone number and address. So, the functionality is very basic to me. I need to seek other ways for more functions.

Dayforce

Pros

Software easy to use. We use it at work for checking in/out, requesting time off, and viewing paystubs. nothing to fancy just a basic program.

Cons

I wish there was a way to see what time off that your colleagues have requested so you don't request the same day off.

Used Dayforce for work, works but is confusing

My overall experience was pleasant...I used Dayforce for over 11 months for my job. It is how I would input my hours worked daily. It was fairly simple to use and had a lot of features.

Pros

I liked being able to adjust my menu bar according to what I wanted and was more important to me, I also really liked being able to access tons of information at my fingertips...information like what my previous earnings are, what my hours for the week were, what my vacation/holiday/ off days are or if I wanted to request any I could also do it through Dayforce

Cons

I did not like that for some reason the website is not compatible with google chrome, it will only allow me to input my work hours through safari! Strange!

Good if you need basic, cheap software; a joke otherwise

I had a love/hate relationship with it. It was easy to log in and out, the basis of the system to track employee hours. Many times in 2016/2017, the software wouldn't read those clicks though, so myself or colleagues would be working for several hours or off work for several hours only to realize our logging in or out hadn't took. Then we'd have to bother our boss to do it, who was hostile about doing so. Having worked in tech, I understand bug issues, but this is a big one to have. The software is affordable, which is why our company chose it. If the bug issues were resolved for good, I'd feel more confident recommending it.

Pros

I liked that the buttons were big and accessible and easy to see, and that they later modified different types of clocking in and out (lunches, etc). When they updated the software, you could tell they tried (and succeeded, partially) in simplifying some of the screens for users.

Cons

Past versions of Dayforce would freeze up a bit. Also, any time anything went wrong (sometimes a log in or out didn't take, sometimes a time would need to be edited) the manager or boss would have to personally modifying these issues. Under good management, this wouldn't be an issue. Under bosses who can barely handle stress and take systems errors out on their employees, it's a complete nightmare situation. This is where Dayforce could really look beyond coding issues and consider how to socially engineer better customer service solutions so even technically challenged supervisors can use the system easily.

Amazing!

Pros

We had several programs serving different functions and it became too much to handle. We are in the process of rolling out Ceridian Dayforce in order to keep everything in one program - recruitment, payroll, employee portals, vacation tracking, etc. It has been a dream to rollout. Very easy and it will make our lives so easy!

Cons

Rolling out will take time, as with any software.

Helpful program with difficult mobile app

Helpful HR tool, but should not be used for distributing/switching shifts for part-time employees.

Pros

It easily displays all employment information (pay stubs, address forms, emergency contact forms, etc).

Cons

The calendar function for picking up/dropping/switching shifts is very difficult to use. While it does show available shifts, it does not display the title of the shift, which may be necessary for certain industries. It also does not notify the user if a dropped/picked up shift has been approved, which is highly frustrating. This function is terrible on the mobile app, and only slightly better on the desktop version.

Punching the Clock is Easy

So far, it has beena great experience with this software

Pros

I like the ease of use and the features are easy to access, and the links are easy to click. If you need to make edits they are easy to do and save within the time clock function. Your time card is easily displayed

Cons

I do not have anything negative to say about this software so far.

So Far so Good

So far my experience has been good. The conversion for our employees from NetSuite to Dayforce has been surprisingly easy. I haven't utilized any of the reports or data yet but the time entry has been great.

Pros

I just started using this software but so far i love the SIMPLE layout !

Cons

It seems to prefer Internet Explorer for some capabilities over GOOGLE .

Dayforce is Slow to start

I am kind of neutral with dayforce. I don't hate it but I also don't love it. If it didnt have to load web components every single time I go to log on I might be happier with it.

Pros

I like that I can track my time sheet and view old paystubs and w2s. It is easy to navigate and put in time off requests.

Cons

It takes a long time to load. I have lost count of how many times I have went to log in to dauforce and 5-8 mins later am finally in the program and able to clock in or out.

Easy Peasy!

Pros

This software has such an easy navigation. Our team members were able to hop in and identify where to go and what to do to manage their own HRIS needs - specifically in regards to benefits and time off.

Cons

I feel like there are many features of this tool that we are just not using. Some of the scheduling features can be better applied, but we need to review the capabilities.

Very useful and organized program for HR and schedule viewing

It is a great tool for both an app and in browser. I definitely recommend it to keep track of hours, pay and scheduling. you can also put in time off requests.

Pros

I love the ease of navigation through the menus as well as the layout for finding your hours, pay and YTD information. The schedule and calendar are simple and easy to access.

Cons

The only downside was saving changes made on the hours, which was something I was having a little bit of trouble saving because my hours depended on me physically authorizing them in a separate screen. It is a two step security feature which can be a little tricky to miss in the app. It is good for validating hours though.

Pretty decent time management software

Pros

Am able to perform the functions necessary to submit time off requests without needing any sort of tutorial or outside help. Email notifications about changes in status are nice

Cons

As with a lot of time management software, the UI is very dated looking. It's not bad or unintuitive, its just not as clean and simple as some other programs I've used in the past. However, this is purely an aesthetic thing and does not affect the functionality.

5***** Amazing!

Over all i really enjoyed using dayforce!, Great software

Pros

Able to use on the computer and your mobile phone with a App, had a help option which gave you instructions on how to use each section. very well laid out! Also really enjoyed the feature to find what your missing when approving payroll.

Cons

Wasn't able to do everything on on the App on my phone like make the schedule, approve pay roll, would be nice to be able to everything on the app that you can on the desktop site
