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.

It's made training and onboarding easy

Pros

It's laid out simply so it's easy to navigate to each area. I also love that I can see my entire team on here.

Cons

Sometimes it was difficult to find a task again if I accidentally marked a task as completed when it wasn't.

easy to find people and understand the organization, which is quite helpful especially for new employees.

Pros

I like the user-friendly interface, allowing me to find information about colleagues easily. I also like the Org chart design.

Cons

Once when I was trying to sing some documents, there's a technical issue where I couldn't load the documents for hours.

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

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)

It seems pretty flexible. My HR organized the info needed into logical sections. The documents I needed to review were obvious. Progress was obvious and visible. I like that on the dashboard, the # of tasks I still need to complete is prominent.

Cons

Wish I could save the work in an incomplete section, so that even if I didn't fill out required fields, I can come back later and continue where I left off.

I really enjoy the ease of use. The UI covers all of the needed assets in order to complete my work in a timely manner.

The one major issue I have is that Sapling logs me out far too quickly. I walk away from my desk for 5 minutes or so, and then I have to relog in.

Easy to onboard new staff members.

Pros

Makes paperwork easy to get through, don't need to bring in all my documents and wait until I'm actually in the office to get started. Sleek interface, efficient movement between sections and helpful customer service.

Cons

Submit button would often be a little slow to let you through to the next page (despite the fact all required fields were filled) so didn't move through pages as quickly as possible.

It was great I could perform most of the tasks from my phone. It was also very intuitive right away and did not require any instructions to figure out.

Cons

That I could not see what the required tasks were from my phone even if I could not perform them it would have been nice to see what that was about. A con is this form has minimum amount and seems buggy with the word count reverting to 0 regardless of it containing text.

Pros

I can pass on tasks to other employees in the company and getting information to the employee before they begin.

Cons

Still some bugs they need to get through. I'd like to be able to customize a little more, but overall a good program.
