Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good but I’d have some improvements
I have it for work, pretty good. I thought it was a bit unfair to have the worker pay for something the employee is forcing them to get to know their schedules but the price wasn’t that bad so no substantial complaints. The set up is really easy although I know some of my coworkers are really confused by the availability and didn’t mess with it because they didn’t know how it worked. I had figured it out but I think it should just be set up nicer. And I think it would be really great if we had a way to categorize/filter our inbox. A lot of my coworkers spam there asking for shifts to be picked up, I want to categorize the important notifications managers messages and from that of my coworkers. Overall, like the set up, never glitches, and is reliable.
this app is so annoying
i’ve had the app for over 2 years now and i just got a second job that also uses hotschedules, which at first i thought was great because i’ll have both of my schedules in one place, BUT there’s no option to easily switch between both employers!! which is think is a simple concept but whatever. i have to log out and log back in if i want to look at both, which is so frustrating for several reasons, the first being that i paid for the app!!! i feel like what am i paying for if not convenience?? it is the least convenient thing ever. the second reason is that it never loads!!! so going back and forth is a whole ordeal and sometimes i can’t even get back into either employers schedules. making plans or trying to schedule my personal/private life around my work schedule is so hard because of this app. it brings me a lot of stress. it also makes communicating my schedule to both jobs hard as well. i don’t understand how this app is rated a 4.7 in the app store considering i’ve never read a good review and this is my experience as well, it just seems to be misleading to me. i don’t even know if writing this review will even do anything but i’m so fed UP with this app that i had to pay for?!??? still confused as to what i’m paying for because it doesn’t seem customer friendly design is considered
NOT A Good User Experience
I don’t know if anyone else has this problem, but I know that everyone I work with does. The HotSchedules app is absolutely TERRIBLE on my iPhone running iOS 14. Everything takes way too long to load (several seconds, even though I have a brand new phone), the app is glitchy and crashes a lot, and the messaging feature has some major glitches that really ruin the experience.
Whenever I’m writing a message, I’ll start writing as normal, and everything will work fine, until my message gets longer than what can fit on the screen and I have to start scrolling to see the rest of it. At that point, the scrolling feature seems to break, and I’m not able to see the rest of my message or scroll up/down to see anything other than what’s at the top of the message box. Additionally, parts of my message randomly disappear while I’m writing, and other parts get duplicated and pasted below my original message, which I don’t see until I’ve sent the message, as I can’t scroll down to see it in the composing window.
These problems wouldn’t be a big deal if this app were free, but I paid $3 for it. With an app like this that’s used by thousands of people around the world, and is NOT free, these issues I’ve mentioned are unacceptable, and this app should not have these major issues like this.
