    Everything is all in one screen. You do not have to have multiple systems to clock in, check your earnings, or request time off. It is very convenient.

    Overall I really like the interface and the ability to suspend a job ie. Lunch breaks and keeps accurate record of vacation days. Excellent for remote employees, improvement over their competition Humanity's Shiftplanner. Highly recommend

    Pros

    Simple, easy to use and understand interface for employees. Great in keeping track of paid sick leave and holiday pay. Can utilize GPS data for clock in times for remote employees.

    Cons

    If you are using the system remotely, you need to be sure for adequate cell signal or WiFi connection to be able to clock in and out. I do not believe there is a way to clock in offline and have it upload when connection resumes

    I'm happy to move from ADP to Dayforce.

    Pros

    Easy to implement from other products, especially ADP Vantage. All features are straight forward and ease to use.

    Cons

    there are many good features, I do not know it is a cons, but since it has too many good features, it is little hard to remember all good features.

    Pros

    Dayforce is the best employee scheduling software I have ever experienced. Not only does it allow you to schedule your employees, but they can also post a shift they need covered or trade with specific others. The admin then gets to approve any changes.

    Cons

    It runs with Silverlight which has its own issues, I have heard they are moving away from this however.

    Pros

    This software is all encompassing - It has so many intuitive functions! We use it primarily for on-boarding, recruitment, payroll, scheduling, and time clocks. We have only scratched the surface of what this software can do. We are especially pleased that after switching to this software we have been able to shave an entire work day off of our payroll processing.

    Cons

    The initial roll out was lengthy and there are still some software kinks we are trying to work out. Sometimes customer support isn't always has helpful as we would like, and can take a bit to get us answers or troubleshooting directions.

    Dayforce is a good management software that our company uses to track employees.

    Pros

    Dayforce is a useful tool for employee management. I am a weekly user of this software, as it tracks my vacation, benefits, payroll, etc. It is very useful to go in to book my vacations, and to track what I have used in previous years. Once you have requested time off (whether it be for vacation, sick time or personal time), it then gets sent to my manager, who then approves it. It is then automatically logged and all parties know how many days of vacation I have left.

    Cons

    This software is quick and easy to use! It is intuitive and does not require much work to learn.

    Pros

    I worked at a different company prior to being here and when i found out they also had Dayforce I was very excited. It is very easy to use as an employee and also as a manager. I have been able to work at both ends. As an employee, having the ability to make request on the computer was simple. Checking and approving my time was a great bonus so I am always assured I get paid the correct amount. If there was an error, I can just do it then and it will notify my supervisor.

    Cons

    At the start I thought it would be complicated. From using a punch clock to now the computer. It took me some time to learn but after it was so easy.

    It's very easy to use and makes it easy to keep track of employee schedules and their time off. It's easy to move around the software as well.

    Cons

    It can take a while to log on when logging into it on the computer. I also don't like that you don't have the option to use your fingerprint to sign on on androids., but other than those two things, it's a great system.

    worked hours are logged and kept in a system, removes filling out paperwork for time off requests.

    Pros

    data management of hours work, vacation earned and banked and lieu hours. You are able to request days off on your virtual calendar which is then approved by your manager. Soft copies of your pay stub.

    Cons

    you have to scan in and out this is how they capture your time. sometimes the vacation earned is not up to date. Does not send notifications when a manager approves your time off request. If you make a mistake or change your date of your time off request after it has been submitted, it has to then be approved by your manager again before you can change it, this can be tedious.

    Pros

    Not Much good to say as a user. The interface looks nice, but is not user friendly. Not sure it is worth the integration.

    Cons

    Confusing wording. Constant alerts that you have to delete (who needs another inbox)? When you open the software, a pop up blocks the item you are trying to use (crazy). During pay period lockdowns, you can't do anything but still get reminders and alerts. Worse EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE IT SAYS YOU MIGHT LOSE YOUR WORK even though there is no save button.... what are you supposed to do? Leave it open and worry all the time?

    Much better functionality than the last Ceridian HR system we were using. Very modern, very user-friendly and encourages the self-serve functionality for clients.

    Pros

    What I like most about this software is that it's more user-friendly and can be built to suit the client/organization's needs. It's definitely more modern and more progressive in its functionality. Also the fact that everything is (or can be) paperless, is great as well.

    Cons

    The reporting and formatting of Dayforce reports can sometimes be frustrating to work with and not that visually appealing. The system can be glitchy at times with updates being pushed through - although customer support is great. Silverlight tends to crash regularly, but this won't be an issue in the future once Dayforce moves away from Silverlight.

    I am a relatively new user and have not used Ceridian's Dayforce software long enough to come up with any particular cons.

    It was a convenient way to see my hours and my earnings at work. It was easy to see important information quickly and conveniently.

    Pros

    The application is super simple and easy to use. The sign-up is based on the information provided by managers and once logged in, the application is secure and has a easy to use interface. The work calendar is simple and shows what the schedule is and what the employee's shift is. Every action in the app makes sense and the menus are descriptive to what they do.

    Cons

    The manager has to properly setup Dayforce or the application is essentially useless. The application is basic and has the necessary features, but it is missing customization for more advanced setups. The application is missing push notifications for important reminders and requires an outside calendar application for reminders.

    all in one provider (recruitment, HR tracking, vac/sick entitlements, scheduling, payroll, benefits management), reputable organization.

    Cons

    getting support can take several days or weeks unless it is super urgent (related to payroll). You are able to rank the priority (1-5), however, Dayforce can lower the priority (from a 5 to a 4) if not a production impact (e.g. payroll related).
