Reviews of Connecteam
Most Valuable APP for SMB Ever
Comments: Our company utilizes employees here in the US, and numerous remote employees in the Philippines (less than 20 employees). We had one solution for scheduling, another program for task and project management, another app for messaging, and a cloud-based program for time-tracking. Until we found ConnectTeam. Everything we needed (plus more), all in a single solution. Not only did we cut our previous costs by 80%, everything is now in a single solution.
- Only add the functions you want. Not encumbered by bloatware or features we will never us. - EXTREMELY intuitive. Once create an account, do the 5 minute walkthrough and you feel confident enough to manage yoir company. - Their FREE option is actually very useful and includes 80% of the features. - FLAT-FEE pricing! Once you decide to upgrade (we chose $29 plan) No 'per-user' cost like virtually every other solution. One flat-fee and can add up to 200 users with no hidden fees. - 24/7 live support; even for the free account! When we first got started, we had a couple hiccups, and at 1:30am, their live support spent over an hour helping us get everything working perfectly (thanks again Noam). - Supports overseas employees in other countries natively. E.g. we have employees in Philippines, and the installed the app and verified their phone numbers via text on their Philippines phone with no issue. Can text-message filipino worked through app, even on free mode. - Messaging/chat options are way better than other messaging apps. Like 'voice' chat, and the ability to integrate other formats. Supports rich text. Take FB messenger, Sling, and viber and combine all the good features, and this is what you have. - GPS tracking of all remote employees.
- At the time of writing this review, all admin features have to be done through website, and not through the app (though they say they are working on that). - Could use more hierarchy fratures, other than just basic. Would be nice to see customizable permissions for Administrators (may support but I didn't see). - App only supports Android and iPhone. No desktop app for Windows or Mac available.

Connecteam: A Comprehensive Employee Management Platform
Comments: Our overall experience with Connecteam has been positive. We've been able to reduce our administrative workload significantly by managing all of our employees in one place. The customer service is also very helpful in quickly resolving any issues we might have.
Connecteam has been an invaluable asset in streamlining our employee management processes. It has made it easy for us to manage all our employees in one place and stay organized with our tasks and projects. Additionally, the mobile app ensures that everyone is always in the loop with the latest information.
While Connecteam is a great platform for employee management, the pricing can be a bit expensive for smaller businesses. Additionally, the platform does not have the most user-friendly interface, which can make the learning curve a bit steep.

Thank you, Victoria! It's great to hear Connecteam helped you reduce workload and costs, and that you have everything you need in one place :) If you feel that some capabilities are harder to use, we want to hear about them and improve :) Regarding pricing, Connecteam is 100% free with all its capabilities for small businesses of up to 10 employees, and for bigger teams of up to 30 employees, we offer fixed prices for each hub, resulting in about $0.5/user/month to $3.6/user/month per hub, depends on the business size. This means that even the most expensive plans across all hubs, still offer the lowest price BY FAR for everything you get. And the best part is that each hub also includes the ability to use it entirely free with limited access, so you can enjoy a truly all-in-one experience but pay only for what you need :) And for larger teams and enterprises, our pricing is known to be flexible and affordable. Hope that helped, thanks again for your review and feedback!
Buyer beware (you get what you pay for!)
Comments: Their "customer service" is all online through chat, and they will always "put in a fix" and then expect you to go read some stupid newsletter to see if the fix has been implemented. They can't seem to see anything from their end as well, so they're constantly asking me for screenshots or videos of the issues. Their managers don't seem to care either. I had a video chat with one to discuss a bunch of the time-eating features, he didn't take any notes and only seemed interested in one thing that "should've been working," and still doesn't. They clearly don't care that their product is sub-par.
The employee use and ease is great. They love it. I hate it as the person who has to put things in, it's so un-intuitive and I spend WAY to much time scheduling.
They've clearly not done good product testing in this program, simples tasks like right-clicks and basic functions just aren't there. It's A LOT of mouse clicks to schedule anything. It is sold as a time saving program, but it's not, and I consider myself pretty tech-savvy. It's just very not user-friendly.

Thank you for your feedback, Josh. We're sorry to hear you have such negative feelings about the platform and would like to improve as much as we can. As for the schedule - did you try to have a live meeting with your account manager? That can help us understand what's important for you when scheduling your team, and advise on the best tools to do that (templates, open shifts, repetitions, etc.). As for the customer service you've received, the reason the team asks for screenshots or videos is in order to identify the problem. If it's a technical issue that's not happening in all accounts, it means we can't reproduce it. If we can't reproduce it, we can't understand what needs to be fixed. While this can be annoying, it's important so we can help. If it's not a technical issue, we need to understand exactly what you're doing in order to advise. My name is Chen and I'm from the product team. If you'd like to talk to me directly, please email me at [email protected] Thanks!
Connecting the team with one simple app!
Comments: Overall Connecteam has simplified our payroll system in allowing us to have the entire team connected in one place. We used spreadsheets previously and this is much more user friendly for the employees who have a harder time with computers and cell phones.
The ability to make various timeclocks for each department so that the clients we are working under is specific. This helps drastically with our billing for work.
The shift attachments are not fully customizable. Drop down lists with text boxes would be much more convenient for our use.
Thank you so much for your review! It's great to hear you're able to manage your team's day-to-day using a single, easy-to-use app :) In the Time Clock's Shift Attachments feature, you have the option for a Dropdown and Text fields, alongside the Number, Image Upload, File Upload, and Digital Signature fields. Can you please email me at [email protected] so we can connect? I would love to better understand your feedback (as this review is anonymous, I can only comment but can't reach out privately). Looking forward to hearing from you, and thanks again for recommending Connecteam!
Fantastic time clock software with a ton of extra features
Comments: We have saved time for the administration. We have gotten more clarity over our spend hours. Employees have gotten a better information and news overview. Employees have gotten a greater insight and clarity of hours. I could go on with all the extra benefits we have found using this software.
It is hard to summarize. The software covers so many different platform uses. We primarily use it for time clock features but we get so many extra possibilities presented: - tracking of incident reports- Easy communication platform for important news, updates etc. - HR tracking of skills and courses- Travel expenses- Task management- Etc-
Sometimes it is hard to find the correct way to setup a feature or function because there is a settings tab under each function.
Andres! Thank you so much for your amazing review! It's great to know you are happy with Connecteam and find it efficient for your business! Connecteam is an all-in-one platform. It means that it suppose to replace multiple tools businesses need to manage their team and have them all under one roof. What makes Connecteam different than other software, is the capability to build the app exactly to your needs, meaning activating and paying only for the things you actually need. That way, you're not being overwhelmed and not paying for stuff you don't need at the moment or at all! Because of that approach, each product in the platform has its own set of UI, capabilities, and settings options. And, of course, you have the main settings menu for all general options :) Hoped that helped clarify why things are built the way they are :) Thanks again for your review!
