Free and easy to use!

I recently started using this app and it has been so easy and straightforward to use!
The updates and notifications are so timely and helpful in getting sub jobs and I appreciate how easy it is to accept jobs! It is also free and it is so nice to not have another expense to think about.

The Red Rover support team was also exceptional. They were always available to address any questions or concerns I had, providing swift and effective solutions. It's clear that customer satisfaction is a top priority for them.

Frustrating touch response on phone

My iPhone SE gen2 is not finicky with my touch, in fact it’s very accurate.
But this app is frustrating because it took minutes and multiple attempts to make selections “stick”. On most every option required. For example, one example in creating an absence is selecting the time of absence. A rotator scroll appears, I choose my time (1/2 day am), and it just scrolls back to “choose”. I try then touching that selection after scrolling the rotator. Nope. I end up back at the inital selection screen. And that happened with almost every selection item. And, try it when you wake up vomiting with fever at 2am!
And acknowledging that I had read the welcome bulletins and watched the video required minutes and multiple taps and retaps and going out an back in the bulletin. Whew it finally worked. Idk the problem, but not all absences are planned for surgeries next week, but sometimes are for real sudden illness… and I don’t have a computer by my bed, bicket and towel.

Jobs already gone

By the time I see them on my app exactly when it notifies me, they are already gone. And I’m seeing jobs at schools I hid. What’s the point of hiding them? I don’t understand preferences when I see jobs from schools I don’t want to work at. I don’t like this app, I’m not getting jobs.

I have hidden schools I don’t want to see jobs from, like all the high schools and junior highs and I still see those jobs, so hiding schools doesn’t work.

I worked pretty much every day the last 2 years on their old app, now the jobs are gone before I even tap them so they are NOT hitting everyone’s app at the same time. I hear the notification and can’t tap fast enough.

And as filters, those don’t work either. I chose one and it goes back to no filters applied. Preferences says default. I guess that means all schools show, even though you have all schools as a choice.

Other districts used the frontline app and I never had problems with it. I could actually choose the schools I’d work at and I then never saw jobs from ones I didn’t want to work at. And I could use Sub Alert that helped me see jobs first before they were gone. Your app is not one they support.

I still don’t like your app as I’m used to working and picking the jobs I want. Now I’m not working as I can’t even get a job. I worked the first 3 weeks of school last year and pretty much worked every day in jobs I wanted. I’m a retired teacher.

Developer Response ,

Hello - I'd make sure you take a moment to go under School Preferences to hide jobs from the schools you don't want to see. It sounds like you are using the temporary filter, which is designed to help subs in districts that might have hundreds of jobs available all of the time to cull through the list of jobs that are available at that moment. Sounds like you are working at a very competitive district, and at this time of year, jobs can last just a couple of seconds before they are taken.
