Hands-down the best app of its kind.

I’ve tried many different shift scheduling/clock in/out apps before. Some were good, some less than good, and some were outright treacherous.
‘When I Work’ is not good, it’s not even great, it’s spectacular; it is by far the best scheduling/shift planning/hours and pay tracking/extra shift finding app I have encountered with!
While the smartphone version offers all the features you need, it is not until you access ‘When I Work’ from your pc and realize this app’s incredible potential. The amount of clever features and details is amazing, it’s like having a bookkeeper/HR person sitting next to you ... for free! Time is money and having this app saves you both. Lastly, kudos to your customer service… big kudos, that is. When I first installed the app, I needed some help so, I e-mailed your customer service, hoping they can enlighten me within 24 - 36 hours. However, I was wrong ... I received an e-mail with detailed explanation within an hour. So, keep doing what you’re doing … because you are doing it right!

Good Ideas…could be more intuitive and informative

I generally don’t have problems with app. The only thing is when changes are made to my schedule by my employer I don’t get any kind of notifications. If there is a setting for this I haven’t found it. That’s not to say it doesn’t exist but It’s not something that I was prompted to set up. Also it wasn’t completely apparent that I needed to indicate that I wanted my availability to “repeat”. Otherwise what it does essentially is prompt you to list your availability for the following week, but it never prompts you to list your availability beyond that first week. If it weren’t for an incident where I had gotten scheduled for a Sunday which I thought I had indicated I was “unavailable” for but in reality I only listed my preference for any given day for the first week only. So I would explain to new users that you have to fill out your availability and use the “repeat” slide button or go through the calendar manually and list your availability for as many days as possible or at least for a few months. Other than that the app has nice and helpful features like who works and when, as well as a place to message co-workers without having their personal phone numbers.

Hello, thank you for your detailed review! We appreciate your feedback on notifications and the Availability feature.

The notifications you receive would depend on a few factors. We can certainly look into what is occurring with your profile and the account. Would you submit a ticket with us?

I can't see history as of yesterday

I work for a major airlines and we use this app to track our shift drop split and trade we also use the history to keep track of who we picked up because w have to note it the day we work. As of yesterday. The history is not there for us. We deleted and reinstalled still not working please fix asap

Also are team is large and we drop pick up swap and split a lot. Daily we have to put who we are working for. Can there be an added feature that when we pick up a shift that there is another line stating who we are working for it will eliminate a lot of issues for teammates and add the capabilities for teammates to add personal notes to a work schedule as a personal reminder. Right now it's only a supervisor feature. It will help teammates when we need to remind ourself for future task in one place.

Thank you in advance
