Overall a decent app. Only issue is the constant glitches. I've had past issues of not receiving notifications. Others in our company have had issues that are only corrected with Uninstall and reinstall. My current issue is not being able to message individual employees. Only able to message employee groups. When looking in the people list, I can see all employees (I think) but their ability to be contacted is gone and it says they have not accepted the invite.

[Edit] Issue has been resolved, and the app works beautifully. Thanks, Deputy, for a great product and great customer service. [Original] It's a decent app. The only issue I have with it is, when uploading an image to be posted, I get the "Cannot find file" error. This doesn't happen when uploading pictures taken through the app. Other than that it's almost seamless. Fix this issue and I'd give it 5 stars.

Hi Storm, we've now fixed this issue - thanks for letting us know. Please download the latest version of the app (9.5.1) and you should be able to attach images to posts and timesheets again. Sorry about that!

I find the app very useful! my only downfall is that I never get notifications on it anymore like shift changes and such, I did for the longest time, and they randomly just stopped. When I get text notifications about the schedule it always messages me 2 weeks after the shifts that I've already worked. I've tried updating the app. uninstalling it, then restarting my phone and downloading it... I cant find a solution other than checking the app everyday.
