What is the history and popularity of the app?

There is no history information available, but the application is owned by Out Crowd, Ltd.

What are the differences to other apps?

The simplicity is what is unique about this app. Most users will be able to begin using it immediately without much introduction or instruction.

The most immediate competitor, ScheduleSource, recently received Certified Integration with SAP Applications, which may lure users to try them. They have more years of experience and high profile clients.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

A demo is available for those considering using FindMyShift. The demo is interactive and allows users to try functions with some direction and instruction.

The app is very intuitive. All schedule changes are easily managed. In addition to schedule creation, the app creates emails and text messages to those affected by any changes. Reports may be generated to track shifts, costs, time off, logins, and more. Schedules may be created and saved for up to a year at a time. Data may be directly exported to payroll systems to expedite the process. Staff leaves, vacations, and sick time can also be tracked and used to identify patterns.

There are quite a few tools incorporated into this application. Staff can use the app to communicate via email and notice board regarding scheduling issues.

The app allows various views of the schedule to help administrators see various patterns. The schedule can be viewed by facility as well. Shift patterns may be created and stored as templates for future use. Anyone who has used spreadsheet software can use this interface.

To set up a schedule, staff names, emails, and mobile numbers are entered or imported via CSV or Excel file. At that point, administrators can add options such as departments or job titles, filters like hourly rate or age, or download the schedule to PDF, Excel, or HTML.

Once created, the schedule may be filled in as a spreadsheet. It is easy and intuitive.

How does the registration process work?

The first schedule may be created without providing payment information. The service is free for the month, so users need only enter a name for the schedule, email for manager, first name, promo code if they have one, password, and security code. The one month free trial does not require payment information.

What does it cost to use the application?

The first month for each staff member is free. After that, one month is offered at a cost of $28. To schedule further into the future "top-ups" are offered. A 2 month top-up is $26.50 per month, 3 month: $25 per month, 6 months: $23.83 per month,and 12 months: $22.25 per month. That translates to $267 per year if you pay for 12 months at once or $336 if you pay monthly.

Text messaging is also an additional top-up that sends notifications to staff cell phones. Notifications allow 137 characters each and are available in bundles of 10-1,000; for total text costs of $2.78-$171.96, depending on the bundle chosen.

Who would you recommend the application to?

FindMyShift is an app that would be useful for both administrators and employees who need to manage multiple shift workspaces. It allows the administrators to send notifications via email or text and the employees to view shifts in advance as well as ask for time off.
