it’s so confusing to put in a new availability: what happened to lunch/dinner shifts? Now I have to include time specific on-times? What if I can work lunch starting after 11:00a, and dinner by needing to be on by 5:00p? How do I input that? 11-5 as my availability? no, because now I’m only being scheduled between those hours and not getting approved to pickup shifts outside of that time frame. Go back to how it used to be, I never knew anyone complaining about your app or system. And its horrible trying to request time off, the old version was so much simpler and so much easier to look at. Now you can’t edit individual days with in your request, you either have to delete the WHOLE request and pray that it gets approved again, or pray that someone will release a shift on the day you can work again. It’s so restrictive and complicated. When it comes to work schedules, we want simple and flexible. What are you guys doing with hotschedules?! If this wasn’t a necessary app for my job, I would delete this new-version revamped atrocity of a system. and that makes me bummed because I was practically your biggest fan back in the day, with the green color scheme. :/

token and password issues EVERY update. plus the location is always messed up (you should make it with option to set location) so we can set a location for calendar sync. {and speaking of sync every time app is foreground it resyncs pushing calendar entries} Edit{} well now I'm not getting my calendar spammed but my password again occasionally doesn't verify at all through app unless i re download it fresh. This isnt a typing issue I'm using a saved password entry. This compounded an issue where this past Saturday a scheduled shift did not sync to my calendar at all. The email notification had it and online website had it but the calendar sync omitted Saturday but not Friday not Sunday. Look I paid for this app like everyone else but it LACKS the Website’s BASIC pickup shift features, but its ability to sync was its saving grace but you guys have now made it to where i cannot trust that it has synced. Further to complicate things was i was unable to login to the app to even verify the error. How the heck does one data point get omitted.

As a user why can i not login to see my schedule? Oh, right, because hotschedules did yet ANOTHER nonsense update, and without downloading the update you cant login. What is so critically important that this app has to be updated twice a month or more? It’s like mission impossible, only “your schedule, if you choose to accept it, is...(every normal day)... this schedule will self destruct in 10 days (when we update the app for no apparent reason) ...” What could possibly be so critically important and secure about my stupid work schedule that it needs to update so often???? Thus losing my login data each time, thus making me download a new version (needing wifi) and requiring me re-verify my identity and password each time I use it? It’s annoying. It’s just giving me access to my dumb work schedule and not anything important like my bank account or a government secret agency mission impossible whatever geez

I literally HATE this app. I wish I wouldn't have bought it and it was only $3 and definitely the worst $3 I've ever spent. I've been trying to open it to view my schedule since 8am today, is now 1pm. It has worked ONCE. Do you know how many times you can open and close an app in 5 hours? Any way. I gave it 2 stars ONLY BECAUSE when it actually does work, it's awesome! The idea behind being able up release and pick up shifts from anywhere is fantastic. But that's all they got right is the idea. I missed out on picking up shifts multiple times because of this piece of crap because by the time the app finally loads, 8 HOURS LATER, someone else has already picked up the shift. AND. For some reason, the app hardly ever Works unless I'm at home in my wifi. If I'm running on only data, forget it. It doesn't even load my schedule. It just throws an error and says I'm not connected to a network. LOVELY.

Despite the constant token and password word issues with every update, only half the reason why I gave two stars, I really like this app. It makes it super easy to leave notes for my fellow managers, to send messages to my employees via the app or to contact them by phone or text. The other reason I gave only two stars is this: There is no way for me to write my schedule on the app. The only way I can do that is to sit down at a computer and use the HS website. Being a manager sometimes I do not have the time to sit at a computer down to write my schedule. How great would it be if I didn’t have to be tethered to a desktop or have to lug my laptop around with me? It’d be awesome! I could do a little bit here, a little there. This would free me up to be able to do the schedule anywhere since I always have my phone.
