Planday is a great tool for employee time tracking & scheduling! It really helped me streamline the scheduling process and manage time off requests and availability of my my team. The time clock feature is straightforward and easy to navigate. Employees can clock in via their phones and view their schedule on the go, which helps with confusion and missed shifts! Overall a great product for small business owners to keep their team coordinated, timely and informed!
  • Team Scheduling
  • Team Communication
  • Employee Time Keeping
  • Ability to assign tasks to employees and/or shifts.
  • Direct messaging between management and team members - not just the group chat.
Planday is a wonderful first step in organizing team management, such as mass communication, scheduling, time off requests, and centralized timesheets. I used it for my retail business and found it to be extremely helpful in communication with my team and keeping track of everyone scheduling needs in one place. As we grew, I noticed a need to assign tasks, which would be very helpful for larger companies or businesses with daily tasks that need to assigned to specific team members, departments, or shifts.
  • Team Communication
  • Scheduling
  • Time Keeping
  • Decreased my weekly scheduling time down to 20 minutes
  • Made payroll processing so much easier as I was able to export timesheets in a few seconds.
  • Increased overall team communication - saving me the time from individual conversations
Ultimately Planday is the perfect tool for simple straightforward team time management, communication and scheduling. I would like to see a task management feature added to Planday and perhaps some integration for employee rewards. Planday is leaps and bounds above Quickbooks Time, and TimeClock Plus but falls behind Deputy only slightly by having less features available. Overall I would recommend Planday to any small business owner with a team of 5-20!

Planday is used within our support department, which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is used to maintain shift patterns for each of the teams within the department. We also use it to manage absences such as sick leave and annual leave. It gives a great overview of staffing for the department.
  • Provides an overview of staffing levels for each team, and the department as a whole.
  • The UI makes it very easy to get a snapshot view of the staffing levels for set time period.
  • Managing absences and arranging for shift swaps are also efficiently handled using Planday.
  • Has a rigid structure, so there is only one way to do any particular task.
This is very well suited where there is a rotating support structure with larger teams involved. Our department as a whole has 16 full-time team members, with 4 people per team. The management of absences such as annual leave, alongside busy schedules or even seasonal downtime, is a breeze with Planday.
  • So much easier to manage than an Excel spreadsheet!
  • The relatively low cost is completely outweighed by the time saved using Planday
Other than an Excel spreadsheet and countless templates, we haven't really used anything else.

Planday is used across the whole of POLPO Ltd to manage all of our employee information, generate schedules for all staff and produce accurate hours worked which translate to payroll. This is for employees working in front and back of the house. The system is also used for all documentation storage, holiday scheduling and reporting, wage tracking, employee tracking in terms of recruitment and retention, and communicating, either within departments or across the whole company.
  • Employee profiling - easy to tailor to your requirements, set up and use
  • Schedule writing & reporting - templates are flexible, fairly simple to write & user friendly (in terms of managers & staff)
  • Communication function - easy to use, efficient
  • Holiday functionality - currently under review, new system launching early 2017 which will improve accuracy, calculate balances and deliver a more user friendly experience
  • Payroll reporting - data is not all relevant, could be more flexible
  • Schedule - could be more flexible to show employees consistently working across the group on one schedule
I do recommend Planday to people, it of course depends on their needs/focuses. Planday is well suited to small groups who need to collate all of their staff/schedules, translate hours to pay and communicate to multiple departments. Planday used at its maximum can run multiple reports, look at wages vs. revenue, employee reports etc. The app has continued to improve since its inception and is user-friendly for staff schedules, updates, and communication.
  • Employee profiles - 99% of employee profiles are up to date with right work info/ID/contracts & personal details, compared to previous 50% (estimated)
  • Wages - consistently reviewed through Planday and updated to reflect sales, busy & non busy periods
  • Schedules - more efficient scheduling & accurate hours logged and therefore, translated to pay - consistent and efficient monitoring by head office/ops team and managers at site level, through clock in and out system.
We did not have a system previously. In terms of feedback from employees since the launch of Planday it has been very positive.
