What 7Shifts Does Not Do Well
As of the date this article was written (10/16/2018), there are very few negative 7Shifts user reviews online. However, some users reported occasional system glitches that resulted in notification delays. A few of them also suggested tweaking the messaging feature, specifically the viewing option, to help them assess who opened the messages and who didn’t.
“As the account owner, I still don’t get all the notifications on time. I wish there was better integration with Square POS, especially with the cash-out tip pools. That would be amazing.” — Jess McCarter
7Shifts offers three subscription plans: Entrée ($43.99/month), The Works ($76.99/month), and Gourmet ($149.99/month). The main difference between the plans is access to premium features, such as time clocking and compliance, manager log book, weather forecasting, mobile shift reminders, and more.
