About Timetastic

Timetastic is a web-based staff leave planner and absence tracking software which helps businesses streamline the process for requesting and approving time off work, as well as updating calendars and schedules with a range of features including an interactive wall chart, personal calendars, third party integrations (Slack, G Suite, Google Calendar), and more. Native iOS and Android mobile apps give users the flexibility to request time off, update calendars, track annual leave and download reports on the go, via tablets and smartphones.

Timetastic allows teams to organize time off work from a central location. Employees highlight the days they want off, then receive request approvals or rejections through the same platform. All time off is updated and reflected immediately on the interactive wall chart and personal calendars. Timetastic’s interactive wall chart enables users to check who is in and who is not at a glance, and plan time accordingly to ensure busy periods have enough staff and avoid any clashes.

All employees have their own personal calendar from which they can view a summary of their annual leave. Timetastic allows users to group their staff into departments and set minimum staffing levels, so that teams can compare and review time off and ensure the right amount of people are always working. Timetastic supports any type of absence, allowing users to manage annual, sickness, maternity, unpaid, and compassionate leave, as well as meetings. Users can also create any custom or additional types of leave as required by their organization. Timetastic has the public holidays for more than 20 countries preloaded into the system.

    Vacation and Leave-Planning Made Simple

    I would love to comment about Timetastic's customer service, but I have never had to use it. The program has very few glitches, provides vacation and leave information flawlessly, and meets my organizations leave management needs beyond what I hoped. I highly recommend this program.

    Pros

    My company used to have four different managers who received time off requests, but the managers did not always communicate the leave schedule with the rest of the organization. Chaos ensued. With Timetastic, those same four managers still receive their time off requests, but once approved, the leave is scheduled and there for the whole organization to see. I especially appreciate the feature allowing each employee to have a designated approval person within the organization, rather than defaulting to Timetastic admin. My employees also love having consistent, easy access to their vacation time information. Employees are able to see, understand, and access their vacation time, making it easier for them to use.

    Cons

    The settings feature is a bit confusing, but Timetastic continually heard and responded to improvement requests, making items like local holidays perfectly customizable. My one consistent criticism is that it sometimes takes a day for leave requests to sync with Google calendar, but that is a minor drawback considering the benefits of the program.

    - Shared holiday calendar means all managers can see who is in/out at a glance (integrates very nicely in google apps)
    - Our entire leave policy pretty much just references 'use timetastic'
    - The cost is very much worth the benefits

    Pros

    Timetastic was a big step up from our previous spreadsheet leave system. As the team expanded, it made it easy for us to have a 'proper' approval system for leave, avoid clashes between critical staff and scrap the rubbish paper calendar on the wall that no one ever bothered to look at!

    Our leave booking is now simple, and there is no excuse for forgetting to mark your holiday. The calendar sharing means I can see at a glance who is out of the office. We also use Timetastic for signess leave and tracking who is out the office for sales trips and meetings (an extra bonus)

    Cons

    Some useful features are not there yet
    - If some staff get extra holidays each year, this cannot be done automatically
    - Holiday roll-over options are basic and may need manual tweaking at year end
    - Moving your holiday year end is a nightmare as you effectively have to 'start again', entering all holidays by hand (though to be fair this is not something you do frequently)

    Great tool to try and find out if your team sees the benefits for employee time and calendar management.

    Pros

    We used to help save time and move to a fully online and paperless way of organizing employee time without doing old way of forms and spreadsheets.

    Cons

    Some people still will argue the good old fashioned way of doing it by requesting to the manager may still be quicker.

    Its great to have so we know the whereabouts of the team as not everyone keeps an Outlook Calendar. Also people don't always have to ask me!!

    The guys are very efficient / on the ball at answering my questions.

    Pros

    Its great to have a picture of all team members and where they are - be it on leave, on site etc.

    Easyish to use when people get the hang. Some people have trouble getting on in the first place (I think may be user error).

    Good for resourcing (when used properly).

    Cons

    If we could have a bit more flexibility with leave etc. that has been input if we need to cancel just one day out of 7 for example. You need to cancel the whole request and resubmit.

    More colours for categories would be good too.

    The few times I've had occasion to contact them, the support team have always been quick to respond and very friendly. We've been using it for years and it's not hard to see why.

    Pros

    Timetastic is fast to use and easy to configure as an administrator. I'm responsible for a couple of teams and everyone loves how simple it is. I also like that you can subscribe to its calendars, so I'm always up-to-date on my teams' movements.

    Cons

    I'd like just a little more configurability around the types of "leave". For some workers we want to declare the days they're going to be in the office, so "leave" doesn't really apply there. I like that you can control whether a leave type is deductible from the overall total, but being to change how each "leave" type is described on-screen would be the finishing touch for me.
