Papershift brings rota planning, leave management, and employee time tracking into the cloud. Get 14 days Free Trial.
Very easy to train in new users. Interface very accessible and well laid out.
Strangely enough, it was too modern for the rather traditional setting of our pharmacy. I had to experiment quite a bit until I found out how to customize it.

never without papershift again
Comments: i save so much time and its all digital. i love it.
i love the support. always friendly :)
u need a lot time to learn to work with it.
Good Software for Owner
The Shiftplan is very food to use. For Position Manager as well. Easy to configure
The Usability for Workers. It will be easier if workers can use a app and login without private mail account. Maybe Personal-ID oder personal Keyword. Not in a browser. In a Android or iOS app.
Reasons for Switching to Papershift: Good Support from the first day. Is so important to be not alone in the first steps.
Great product! Easy to use and great customer service
Comments: Great experience. From the trial, to now, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been great at helping me with any initial questions and always checking in to see if we are still using ok and need any help.
How easy it is to use! The simple need for an online calendar which staff and management can see - request holidays and view others in their department is so useful
Everything is great, I would say a total number of sick days would be good on the employee profiles rather than having to calculate myself but its very minor
Reasons for Choosing Papershift: Costs, and overall need, the other system held other things that we really didn't need. And also the simple layout was very important.
Reasons for Switching to Papershift: Overall contact and communication and simplicity plus cost.
Lots of features but easy to use
Comments: I can log my work, sick days, vacations, and plan my calendar in a few clicks without disrupting my work. The app is very nice!
At my company, we work remotely and value our personal work/life balance. One of the features is the "Work Balance": I can quickly see how much time I've been working, the upcoming vacation days and holidays, and now I can plan better my own schedule. The time tracking feature is easy to input, we can note our breaks but we also have the setup that calculates it in case we forget. You can register sick dates and upload files related to it, so we don't have to wait to process it during hard times. Everything is in sync with the calendar, but my favorite feature is the sidebar, as it gives you a glance of the work balance hours and the vacation time. It's super easy to use and I know the HR team has everything organized in easy steps!
The only thing I'm missing is the auto-log hours. The feature is available, as one of the customer representatives from Papershift reached out to me once, but I'm not sure how to activate it. I guess I need to talk to the admin about that.
Comments: 6 hotels, mostly student staff that needs to change shifts frequently. Different hours every month
Intuitive to use, fast, platform independent
App, sometime the menu is confusing. Diagrams would be great.
Alternatives Considered: Shyft
its a good way to track working time but there are some issues
Comments: I work now over 3 years with PS and its a good tool to plan the working time but there are some not so nice things that they dont have a app for the workers that I don't like.but overall its a good tool and work well
1. Modern 2. Easy to use 3. Mobile compatible
1. Website to slow 2. No APP for workers 3. To less options for Planing the working time

Feedback on the Papershift as a user
Quite comfy and easy way to track your working hours and check when your colleagues are available in the office thanks to the Calendar week graph
Sometimes the time counter crashes, especially when you use couple of devices i.e Laptop and phone being not at the desk. This fact disappoints me the most since you need to count the time yourself and contact the admin to make the adjustments.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. The feature you are describing (i.e. multi device tracking) is something we are already working on. We hope that we will soon be able to release this. Thanks again for using Papershift. Best wishes. Kevin
Perfect staff planing
Papershift is for us a big simplification for the personnel planning. Each department can individually arrange its planning, if an employee works in several departments the planning is very clear and well to coordinate. The support is courteous, reacts quickly and is always open for desired changes, furthermore there are regular updates and improvements.
Unfortunately not every function from the premium or professional tariff can be booked individually.

Comments: Implementing the program in the organisation was rather easy and everybody seemed to get along with it from the very begining very nicely.
The use is very instinctive and user friendly. It is highly customisable.
It does crush regularly and sometimer it does take way to long to load.
Comments: It is a very good software to plan and coordinate work shifts and PTO. We use it on a daily basis and I would definitely recommend buying it.
- It is very easy to get accustomed to - Most features are self explanatory - There is a huge number of options to choose from - You can adjust the software to fit your company's needs
- There is no users manual, only a few videos which don't even cover all basic features - There are so many options that you can get lost trying to figure out how to adjust the tool

Good and Easy To Uwe Team Planner
- easy to Setup and to use - compies wird statutory requirements - nice UI
Plans start at 10 Users (5 would be nice)
I like mosteley the planning and vocation tool
the support / features could be more designated to customers wants. Sometimes some functions just change or get replaced without any possibility to stay at the old status. When asking support they tell, that they will check, but in 2 cases for us nothing happened.
Alternatives Considered: Microsoft Excel
The one tool I use everyday
Comments: There are functionalities for everything I need. It fits perfectly in my daily job. It helps me to manage my times, organise my vacations, track my overtimes.
Easy to use tool with all the necessary options and beyond. It helps me easily manage, track and organise my times on a daily basis.
I basically like everything. However the mobile app wasn't on its best, but the web app is good enough to cover the mobile need as well.
The apt forware for your payroll attendance tracking
Comments: This has been nice and satisfactory to business needs making it worth the deal
The easiness of punch-in & out for employees, the leave balance, hour balance is clearly shown. The application of leave and work tags make it easier to communicate with the administrator.
The onboarding can be more helpful overall but it was still good.
Very easy to use
Comments: I use every week to check the shifts at work, which is very simple and easy.
I like how simple and easy the app is to use that it is helpful to what I need to do.
I had some difficulties finding extra settings. I want to use more than I usually do.

Comments: Overall we had a great experience with Papershift so far. Especially the support is excellent and very supportive when one is having issues or need help with certain features.
At our doctors office we were looking for an easy to use software to track our employees working hours. With the support from the Papaershift team it was easy and really straightforward. It’s easy to use for the daily tasks and even the monthly accounting based on the Papershift reports is much easier and faster.
Sometimes I had some difficulties to find the right settings in the many different settings pages. But as one doesn’t need those on a daily base, it‘s not a big deal.
Bye bye to cumbersome excel worksheets !
Got rid of cumbersome excel worksheets
GIven access to to employees
More dynamic shift plans
Within a short time I got rid of the excel worksheet which I used to to my shift planning. Now I can also ask other employees to do this work and the employees love it because they get access to it from their smartphones. I am not using all features but the extract of worked hours goes straight into my accounting system.
I am looking for a more direct way to print the shift plan without going through export and download. But at the rate of change the product is experiencing I think this will come soon.
A versatile and easy to use Tool
Comments: It was good. I barely had any problems and would recommend using it for your company.
The simpleness. Being able to do your work and applying your times easily, without hassle.
A little bit slow and that it's accessed through a website. A dedicated app would be much better.

Hello Fatih, thank you very much for your kind review. Regarding an app for our service. We actually already offer a time clock app that companies can use to easily track times. However this is only available as a paid feature. We are also currently working on new apps, so keep your eyes open for news regarding this topic. Thanks again for using Papershift. Best wishes. Kevin from Papershift
First impression after about 4 months
Comments: With Papershift we were able to cover the entire staff planning in the logistics centre. Previously, a weekly schedule required around 8 working hours, now the same work can be done in less than an hour, as the shifts can be booked automatically, or weekly schedules can be easily transferred.
Papershift makes it very easy to display task areas and working times very well and in detail. The support and the customer friendliness are exemplary. Each problem is dealt with individually and very precisely, within the shortest possible time.
If different time models are to be created within the created shifts, this is only possible if the shift is created with the respective individual times.

Hello Nils, thank you for your review. Happy to hear that you enjoy Papershift so far. Regarding your issues about the breaks: I think you are referring to our automatic breaks. I am not quite sure what part of the break management does not comply with the German law. Maybe you can get back to me so we can further clear things up. Thanks again for using Papershift. Best wishes. Kevin from Papershift
Feedback from an ice cream shop with 3 branches
the support ist very good und kindly, easy to use,
It would be nice to have a function like "Undo". At some point, when I create or delete a layer for several weeks, the casts were gone and I had to start all over again
Very useful, easy in use platform.
It is very easy to use the platform. It is simple, and allows the superior to have an easy access to all the data kept in the system, so that he can control the hours, holidays, all kind of absences of the worker. It is also very helpful and easy for a worker itself, to have the control of the hours of work done, to communicate with the boss concerning holidays, sick leaves.
Nothing actually, it is just very helpful, clear and easy to use.
