Not my favorite software

I wish my company had decided on a different scheduling software altogether.

Pros

I like that it has an app so I can work from my phone.

Cons

The features are very tedious and require so many more steps than necessary. I can't easily access my schedule without going through multiple avenues first. I can't delete shifts from the app. There is no "right click" option on the calendar for quick editing of a shift; you have to take the time to open the shift and make the changes, then save it.
