Overall Satisfaction with Sling

I work for a smaller Assisted Living/Memory Care, we have 4 locations. We use Sling for a lot of our communication and almost all our staffing needs. Sling has been very helpful to cover shifts and to help with communication within our company. I like Sling because as a Staffing Coordinator I can easily see who is working where, we use different colors to signify bonuses and distinguish between office/aides. It has a messaging system, newsfeed & basically everything we need. We use the free version.


  • Ease of access for managers & employees alike.
  • Sling staff always reply almost right away when I have had questions in the past.
  • We love utilizing the different colors for the schedule, so it's easier to see who's what and where/when.
  • Easy for staff to apply for shifts.
  • Free version does everything we need it to!


  • Bring back the forever repeating shifts, they currently only repeat for 1 year so I have to go through every shift once a year & reset them.
  • Our staff liked when they had birthday notifications for staff.
  • Wish there was a way for admins to be managers of managers. What I mean by that is when management requests time off I do not get a notification so they have to let me know separately.
  • Colors for each position (you get to pick)
  • Ease of opening shifts and editing to split shifts etc.
  • That they have a free option as we are a small company
  • It has been much easier to fill shifts faster
  • It's easy to train new staff on with ease
We had a few meetings with OnShift marketing to go over features and everything but our management team is very satisfied with the free version on Sling. Sling has been the easiest and best for payroll. OnShift was very spendy for our budget and didn't have messaging built in. Our staff are able to message each other within the application and website without any trouble. OnShift also did not have any color coding which now that we've been using Sling- we can't see not having it. It's so very helpful and pleasing to look at!

Do you think Sling delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Sling's feature set?


Did Sling live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Sling go as expected?


Would you buy Sling again?


Sling has been our best option for communication and scheduling. We looked into OnShift and other scheduling systems that aren't free. Sling has been our best option. Our schedule is a beast and Sling has made my job much easier and for our on-call staff as well. You can change the color of positions (which we love) and we love to use green for bonus money shifts!
