We currently use Frontline Absence Management district wide for all staff and teachers who need to request a day off, including professional leave time, vacations, sick days, jury duty, etc. Since this is all digital, this minimizes the amount of paper being submitted and needing to be tracked from each submitter. This also helps us speed up the process and afford staff opportunity to submit these digitally the morning of the day, from their phones and computers.
  • Easily submission process. Select the day you need to schedule on the listed calendar, mark the type of request, and submit.
  • Works on different digital devices including phones, tablets, and computers.
  • Easily track your balances by looking at your account history.
  • Delete requests you have already submitted.
  • There really isn't much. This is a pretty simple program to use and is part of Frontline, which many school districts use.
  • Pricing is high. Especially with growing costs and the fact that it costs extra to integrate or streamline with single sign-on to the other Frontline products.
Great for school business offices or school board/main offices going digital with staff submission of days off, vacation, sick, professional, personal, etc. Helps alleviate time passing physical documents and affords the user a platform they can track their balances and easily submit requests digitally using their phone. If you are a Frontline user of their other products, this seems like a no-brainer and can integrate with them, as well as other programs.

Frontline is being used across the district with over 500 employees. They use it to record an absence, set up sub coverage, and put in for a personal day.
  • It's easy to access via the website. Employees can manage it from anywhere they have access.
  • Easy to set up up recurring absences, such as multiple conference dates.
  • Allows employees to keep track of absences and see days left.
  • It can be difficult to set up recurring absences.
  • There is a cut off time that we can sign in or go back and change particular details of an absence.
Frontline is well suited in that it allows you to access all of your previous absences and upcoming ones as well. It also allows you to leave comments to your supervisor and sub-plans right in the software.

Aesop is used to assign substitute teachers for teachers when they are absent. When a teacher needs to be absent due to illness or other obligations including professional responsibilities such as a field trip or professional development, teachers use AESOP to register their absence so a substitute can be found. AESOP is used for all teachers in my district. This program addresses the problem of finding substitute teachers for inevitable absences.
  • Allows teachers to mark themselves absent 24/7: this is a plus because you don't have to worry about the message being lost by a service. You can also procure a substitute in advance if you know you'll be out for a professional training or field trip.
  • You can upload your lesson plans or email your substitute so the substitute is prepared to teach your classes.
  • You can see a history of absences so you can cross-reference your leave allotments with your history on AESOP.
  • Teachers cannot cancel their own absence. We have to ask the office staff to do so. This is irritating when an absence must be canceled (Due to a canceled professional development, for example).
  • Sometimes absences go unfilled. It would be great if AESOP could have a roster of qualified substitutes to cover absences.
  • You cannot assign your absence to a particular substitute if you know he or she is available and a good fit for your absence.
Aesop is excellent for absence management in the school setting. Aesop has been used in elementary and secondary schools successfully. I have used Aesop as both a substitute and permanent employee. Aesop isn't a good fit if a district doesn't have enough substitutes to fill all absences. Aesop only matches permanent teachers with subs currently on a district's roster.

Frontline Absence Management, formerly Aesop, is being used by our school district to manage and track staff absences. We use it for staff submissions during sickness, family sickness, or other personal days. Substitute requests are also made within the system. Administration can also approve requests for vacations, professional development, conferences outside of the district, and other related staffing requests.
  • Frontline is very easy to use for submitting absences and requests for staff.
  • It is nice to see the allotment of days banked for a staff member, such as sick, family sickness, personal days, and vacation days.
  • The Frontline system for staff approval in my account seems very complicated, but that may just be my district.
  • A more detailed system for substitutes might be nice.
Frontline is great for school systems or businesses that need to easily manage staffing requests for absences, especially those that may require approval or need to be submitted in advance.

Frontline Absence Management makes it easy for my organization to put in personal or sick days at work. I am able to easily program the application for months in advance. My organization also uses it to track sick days and allows substitutes to pick up days through Aesop. I can also review the history of sick/personal/professional days.
  • The ability to see previous history.
  • Ease of use for placing in sick days.
  • Running list of what days are available (Amount of sick days)
  • I would like to have an app that is created for easy access.
  • Support from Frontline is not easy to access
  • I would like to see the number of times a specific substitute filled in for me.
Frontline Absence Management is very straightforward and easy to use, but I wish as a teacher I had more abilities to see when substitutes previously filled in for me. It is very well suited for school districts that are trying to manage their staff sick days. It allows teachers to also put in various personal, professional, or bereavement days.

Frontline is used to record teacher absences. You can track absences for various reasons, and see dates and information for each. You are able to record notes only seen by the administration as well as those only seen by a substitute. It is easy to use through the website as well as the app.
  • Easy to navigate
  • Access through website and app
  • Select dates and reasons with 1 click
  • The ability to view previous years' absences.
Great to track attendance for employees and employers to have accurate records.
