Sapling

Pros

Very intuitive and easy to use. I had no problems going through the process of pre-boarding.

Cons

Only complaint was that the text identifying the headers was grey on a background of white, making it hard to see where exactly the boxes to type were.

Straightforward but form filling is hard

Pros

Straightforward for the most part, and I get to see my future coworker's faces before I start

Cons

No additional help given for tax forms, and some tax forms that require a worksheet don't have the worksheet lines fillable.

Best onboarding experience I've had yet

Pros

1. The segmented approach to filling in forms make it very easy to complete forms
2. I like the prioritized approach to tasks with the clear red/green markers

Cons

1. The calendar doesn't clear delineate between tasks that I have and other events
2. The task window has too many things going on; assignee, workflow, completed by, etc. These feilds could be hidden in advanced area that would allow the user to focus on actual tasks.

Great software, would recommend!

Pros

How easy the implementation was! We were able to start using Sapling almost instantly, which meant we were able to speed up our onboarding process and save time right from day one.

Cons

There are some features which were not so intuitive, and we had to ask how to do them. But once you know what to do, it is easy to use.

Easy and straight-forward

Pros

Ease of use, the onboarding process over Sapling was very pleasant. the app has a very elegant Material design.

Cons

The first screen of the onboarding process looks a bit weird on very wide screen (34"), the text should be narrowed down.

Super Easy On-Boarding Experience

My overall experience was positive! First day on boarding can be a lot of new information to work through but this was very approachable and seamless.

Pros

I liked how easy it was to navigate Sapling, I used it to start my on boarding at a new job. The interface and functionality was super easy to understand, I found it easy to go through each task and complete them.

Cons

This is minor, but when exploring to find my team I constantly had to click "see more team members" to load more people, maybe a scroll or some other type of way to load this info might be helpful? I found myself clicking this button 4-5+ times and eventually moved on.

Saves so much time, but needs improvement

Pros

I appreciate the fact that I didn't have to physically walk into the office to sign paperwork and fill out forms before my first day. I also like that the interface was extremely simple and easy to use, especially for a non-tech-y person like me.

Cons

I think the software can improve by adding a "save changes" button. I had to ask HR a question regarding a form that was listed under the "your information (?)" section, and when I returned to it the next day, all the info I had input the night before was gone – not a totally huge inconvenience, but still a nuisance.

Congrats on the new role Katrina and we appreciate your candid feedback. We are happy to hear that you found the onboarding process streamlined and saw the befits of it.

Clean Cut Navigation

Pros

I really enjoyed how easy it was to through the process. Very well organized compared to other on-boarding apps have used in the past. GUI is easy on the eyes and has good flow. When I logged out and back in, was right where I left off. Really enjoyed seeing the team I am working with and all the new hires coming on board with me.

Cons

I did experience when I was signing a document the information boxes covered some of the content to view what I needed to input into a couple of boxes. Overlay was hiding text. I eventually figured out. This was the only thing the I ran into.

New employee... streamlined onboarding

Pros

Sapling made onboarding to my new company smooth and easy. I appreciated that I could find all the information I would need in one place. It was helpful to be able to write a short bio for myself to introduce (or reintroduce myself) to team member and to put names to faces before arriving on my first day. Also, having a timeline of the company's history was interesting to see what milestones they placed value on.

Cons

I really haven't had any negatives with Sapling yet. For the needs of onboarding as a new employee, it met all the criteria I can think of.

Easy Onboarding

Pros

Made it very easy to get started with my new role - clear onboarding instructions, details about the company, and notifications on tax documents and identification I had to bring.

Cons

The mobile interface wasn't as easy to use -- I started the docs in Mobile and ended up switching back to my computer.

Onboarding

I had a great experience with Sapling, I wish all companies would use this software for the convenience of the on boarding process.

Pros

The software was easy to use, I liked that I could use it from home and also that it only too a few minutes to complete

Cons

Some pages took a while to load, I would have to refresh the page to gain a response. Everything else was a breeze.
