7shifts user reviews :
I really wanted this to work and it has so much potential, however getting it setup up and running smoothly was a giant headache. We only use the scheduling and time clocking functions for now and we had issues with 7 punches (maybe that should be reviewed separately but it’s all connected) logging out at our locations. The 7 shifts app can be glitchy. You user permissions are not as customizable as I would hope. Customer service is great so that’s their saving grace.
There’s a bug when clicking on the (+) icon in the manager log book, the program clicks on random other field instead. Happened on at least two different devices I know of, one of them a Google pixel 6 pro. I made sure screen was clean, device updates/restarts were made, ect, and the bug persisted. Gave it a four stars just for the bug as it was not an issue in previous releases, otherwise it is a five star app
We’ve had our 7Shifts subscription for about 6 months now, and use it for scheduling at our coffee shop. The idea? Love it! The website? Functional and easy to use. This app? Absolute junk as it is. It crashes. Some employees don’t get chat notifications despite having notifications enabled. Sometimes, for seemingly no reason at all, when creating a shift, the app will save it in a different time zone. For instance, the shift is 9-1, the app will show it as 10-2. Needs work.
- Hi Kristyna, I am sorry to hear about your experience! That definitely doesn’t seem to be working as expected. Please reach out to support[at]7shifts.com so that we can look further into this for you
The app was working well, but just recently, it seems to be glitchy. Sales and labor numbers are not always available or are not available until much later on in the day. It used to be very accurate, but there is an obvious lag now. I also am no longer receiving any emails regarding shift changes, announcements, and messages. This is much more recent, and I have already double checked my settings and spam folders.

I generally like this app, but I’m experiencing some issues with it. 1) I can’t sync to my Google calendar. That page eon’t scroll to the button allowing me to do so. 2) I can’t set a different notification sound for 7shifts. 3) I can’t mute the app when I’m off. I can either get notifications for everything or nothing. 4) I can’t turn off email notifications. Help? Or please add these features in the next update!

This is an excellent app that my company has been using for some time. Lately I have run into a minor issue where I’m unable to contact certain individuals through the app’s chat feature, however, when they message me first it opens up a new chat and we are able to correspond. I hope this is fixed soon, it is an odd bug and has caused some inconvenience lately. Otherwise, I really like the design and functionality of the app.
- Hi John! We apologize for the issues you have experienced with the chat feature. This bug has been resolved in Version 2020.29.2; please update your app to the latest version. If you have updated to the latest version but are still experiencing issues, please reach out to support[at]7shifts.com so we can look into this further!
