    It was easy to use, clear in terms of what was required and how much was left to do, and offered a pleasant user experience.

    It did accidentally clear out a form box when I uploaded my profile pic! But that was a minor issue.

    Automated all HR information tracking which has saved a huge amount of time from an admin perspective. Extremely beneficial when onboarding a new team member.

    Pros

    Very clear and concise interface.
    Varying levels of admin functions allow for complete control over editing company profile while also protecting conditional information.
    Support during the sale, contract and implementation have been fantastic. All questions answers and plan put in place to make sure we launch when planned.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a delay when clicking in to edit tasks in workflows but it's not something that would stop me from using the software

    Starting a new job can be difficult, but Sapling was used to help keep me on task and helped me feel comfortable in a new environment.

    Pros

    The feature that helped me the most was the directory of my colleagues when I started my new job, it helped me remember names and feel less afraid that I would forget someone.

    Cons

    At one point, my listed tasks vanished and I felt lost during one of my first days of training at a new job. The problem was fixed several hours later though.

    Easy On-boarding Process.

    Pros

    Simplicity and ease of use. The flows were logical I thought. Also the login process was seamless. I didn't face any glitches

    Cons

    The benefits sign on process was slightly less intuitive. I wasn't sure what I was NOT signing up for (E.g. was 401K sign up part of this?)

    It logged me out every other minute. Annoying.

    Centralized platform to manage employees and assign tasks for onboarding

    Pros

    Easiness of use combined with the option to scale according to business needs. Sapling provides a great platform to ensure employees stay organized.

    Cons

    Sapling has its own limitations and does not support a variety of other onboarding features that might be available through other solutions. Still, I believe this to be the best option for usability

    Pros

    It's easy to use. I don't have to figure out the steps of the process myself. The software gives me cues when a task is done and when I need to move on to the next task.

    Cons

    It's very glitchy on a phone. I tried on-boarding through my phone, it was very tedious. I couldn't understand what was missing, site isn't responsive enough for a phone.

    Major time-saver

    Pros

    Sapling is very easy to use and keeps everything organized. I don't have to worry about trying to keep track of everything because it manages that for me. I value software that allows me to quickly engage and do what is required without being gimmicky and substanceless.

    Cons

    Nothing really. Some of the signature and image integrations can be a little finicky, but it really works well 99.9% of the time.

    Pros

    Gives new hires a good first experience and interaction with the company. Great way to streamline new hire documents and introduce the team before the candidate arrives for their first day.

    Cons

    Does not play nice with other programs. We use a lot of different programs and it would be great if Sapling was more willing to share basic information with other programs.

    Set-up, integration and maintenance is very simple and intuitive. The support team is very responsive.

    Cons

    I wish they integrated with Gmail to route messages through your actual email inbox as some other software does (Lever, for instance). I also wish they utilized DocuSign rather than EchoSign for the eSignature feature. It's a bit more robust and easy to use.

    quickly and easily signed onboarding documents before my start day so I could focus on building relationships when I arrived at my new job instead of paperwork. Provided an easy to tackle to-do list for my first week.

    Pros

    I loved being able to check out the profiles of my future coworkers and see the organization mapped out by team.

    Cons

    I wish I could have advanced past the "upload a photo" page to finish signing docs and inputting other text info and come back once I had a photo ready. I didn't have a photo on hand so I it paused my process and i had to walk away and come back to it days later.

    I love the task center, it made onboarding easy. I'm not a fan of text box minimums on reviews......

    Cons

    I didn't like that there were authentication scenarios that were not addressed, like being logged in for the first time and my session expiring led to some weird interactions of having to log out entirely and start over.

    Also, some tasks wouldn't show up in the list until I deleted my cookies and started over. (I actually contacted your support team about it).

    I know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing any any given time during our work week. Particularly helpful when onboarding to a new company.

    Pros

    Everything is simply labeled and easy to find. Menus are minimal in length so I can find stuff, the colors are not garish, the work flows are intuitive.

    Cons

    I get logged out after some minuscule amount of time. Sometimes I get massive amounts of lag in between screens, which is frustrating and I over-click

    Cons

    On the forms, would be good to understand what we're signing it for (took some time trying to understand). Additionally, would be nice to have some of them autofilled from previous data provided (not sure if legally allowed)
