Overall it's intuitive, pleasing to the eye, and has a lot of information. The search bar feature is awesome so you can search for anything within the system, whether that is a report, an employee, a section - this provides quick access to complex breadcrumbs. Our staff enjoys the system.

I have found UKG to be very intuitive and easy to learn. There are a few areas I wish merged better, for example, custom forms and security profile selection would be awesome but all in all, the system operates and functions the way we need it to. And I have to reference the support again, the team here is phenomenal.

After several years of using UKG, I would say it's pretty easy to use. UKG has really stepped it up with communication and instructionals, however there are a lot of changes happening regularly which can make it a little harder to stay on top of.

High rating as HR admin-level users have a lot of power customizing the system without support, but lower rating as the ease of use for employees/managers is not friendly so they can easily get lost even though we removed all [unessential] from their security profile. They get confused from having to 'Mark as Complete' checklist steps as not all allow them to auto-complete and they absolutely keep freaking out that the direct deposit step doesn't get a green checkmark because [it's] pending admin approval and they don't read the highlighted bold instructions telling them this. They also click to complete I9, w4s and then don't see the add new button and then think [there's] nothing to do since the screen is blank. We have a lot of training internally just to help our end users troubleshoot the system.

UKG is very user friendly. The web login allows our employees to more easily request time off and review their timesheet. The app is easy to use as well. The time clock connection with UKG makes it easy to setup another time clock and accurately record the district employees time in and out.
