What is Sling?

Sling is an employee scheduling software designed to help businesses manage employee shifts, work hours, payroll, costs and more. The platform enables organizations to design custom shift templates to schedule tasks, view employee availability and handle time-off or shift swap requests via a centralized dashboard.

Sling includes a time clock functionality, which allows employees to clock-in/out using mobile devices and receive notifications for late arrival or missed entries. Features include geofencing tools, timesheet management, overtime/leaves tracking, newsfeed, labour cost optimization and more. Additionally, managers can use the task management module to create tasks, add checklists, assign teams and track progress across projects.

The best scheduling software I've ever used.

This is has been an eye-opening experience. I didn't know such an awesome scheduling solution existed and is perfect for small or large businesses. Everybody with a team should be using Sling.

Pros

It allows for coordination across unlimited business locations and unlimited employees. The ability to offer shifts to employees and allow them to claim or apply for them is incredible. SMS notifications to employees for their shifts, daily email notifications for managers to know who is working where, allowing staff to call out or switch shifts, apply for time off, set availability, and more.

Cons

I don't really have anything negative to say about this software. If I had to find something, it would be that at times, the interface is laid out unusual to our expectations but once you see what it's doing, it makes perfect sense.

Best scheduling app out there

It truly has been a real asset for our business, I really believe we would be lost without this fantastic software.

Pros

Clocking in works great with SLING, scheduling and the employee interaction with the app is fantastic!

Cons

Getting use to messaging for help, were all used to calling someone. I found it works great and the response time is quick and responsive.

Reasons for Switching to Sling

No clock in options, that's what we needed mosst with our software.

Probably the Best Streaming Service Available

Fair to partly cloudy. The app itself is much better than it used to be.

Pros

Sling has excellent offerings that are far cheaper than what one would pay for cable tv. The add-on's aren't terribly expensive, either.

Cons

Sling has a tendency to change their pricing/packages frequently. It's annoying and I've written them to ask them to cool it, but I'm very sure that falls on deaf ears. So far it's been worth holding on to.

Excellent with limitations...

As a scheduling software great. no need for the extra features.

Pros

Easy access to distribute schedules and messages.

Cons

Private messaging. Users can private message each other within Sling. If these messages take a negative turn. Sexual Harassment or something else. There is no way no monitor these messages. Unless a screen shot was taken there is no proof, because if the either of the user deletes the message it is gone.

Reasons for Choosing Sling

Free

Reasons for Switching to Sling

This app is a game changer

Sling is excellent! I have been using it for several years and it’s getting better every year. I highly recommend it. It’s allows real time scheduling for team members as well as time off requests, shift notifications and several more options. It’s extremely convenient and easy to use. There are great simple features like colour blocking specific roles, it’s the little things that count. Along with all of that there is virtually no annoying advertising. Sling has created a seamless connection between schedule creators and team members creating easy communication and boundaries. Thank you Sling for generously offering such a great app.

Pros

There are so many options and it’s very easy to use from both the administrator and users point of view. It’s constantly being updated for improvements and there is absolutely no advertising on the free version.

Cons

It’s not really a con more of a possible option in the future and perhaps this is already an option. It would be great if it could link to iCal for apple users.
