    It is efficient, it is simple, it's priced reasonably, and it is just a fantastic platform for running a restaurant.

    Pros

    Schedulefly is a great tool for a multi-location restaurant unit. There's a parent login to each of your locations, and it's easy for staff who work between them to participate in multiple of them. The mass text feature is great for staff who aren't so great about checking email. In general, the tool has everything you need, and not a bunch of extra features that you don't.

    Cons

    The only complaint I have is that it isn't part and parcel of my POS, so there is a bit of redundancy.

    Pros

    The software's ease of use means no training is required and this means that a lot of formerly time consuming issues - shift trades and shift checking for example - are so easily done that I have forgotten what it was like before we started using Schedulefly. The price is also fantastic. As is the customer service.

    Cons

    There is nothing to dislike about this software. FYI capterra verified me through my linked in profile and it is making me use my distillery as my organization. I also have Top of the Hill Restaurant and Brewery and that is the organization I use Schedulefly for.

    One of our department heads had experience with this software from another job, and he was allowed to use it at our venue although the rest of our team uses Homebase.

    That manager obviously loved Schedulefly, but the rest of our department heads did not prefer Schedulefly.

    The manager has since moved away and we will be discontinuing the use of Schedulefly altogether.

    Pros

    This is a very stripped down scheduling solution with a low-tech feel.

    I love the daily crib-sheet emails, showing the scheduled staff in a very simple text-based format.

    I think that the way employees can be grouped by the roles they fill is much more intuitive and user friendly than with other solutions like T-Sheets or Homebase.

    I like that the cost is not based on the number of active users.

    Cons

    Because our theater uses project-based cost accounting, it's frustrating that I cannot assign a customer or job code to a given shift.

    I prefer a solution with an integrated time-clock function. I think you can get a time clock with schedulefly, but it comes at an additional charge.

    Pros

    It works, it's consistent, it eliminates so many unnecessary miscommunications, it empowers our crew and allows flexibility with scheduling across the board, whilst strengthening the teamwork mentality. It keep everyone accountable and connected without being invasive. The Schedule Fly crew are committed to their product and live it through their customer support as well as involvement in the restaurant industry as a whole.

    Cons

    Haven't found one yet. It is simplistic, functional and thorough by design, happy customer for several years now.

    You can swap shifts by sending the swap to one person or offering it to all staff. All shift changes are approved by management via smartphone or computer and real time alerts are sent out. Your schedule is posted on Schedulefly and all employees contact info is literally at your fingertips. Awesome way to staff and organize efficiently.

    Pros

    Schedulefly is the absolute easiest, most obviously simple scheduling software for a restaurant EVER. It never misses a text to anyone, it always stays right on time. There are no complications if you have whatever kind of phone, Schedulefly works. You could have a flip phone from 2008, have no fear...Schedulefly is going to still send you real time notifications and send real time notifications to the management team.

    Cons

    The only thing I wish was that Schedulefly had more of a following. They put HotSchedules to shame, Schedulicity to shame, etc. Unfortunately, both of those software systems tend to be used more which I think is a shame.
