It works, assuming I close and reset it several times a day. Otherwise it doesn't show messages, goes into infinite load screens, or won't send messages to others. It took me almost three months of fighting before I could finally get it to change my profile picture. It's a very frustrating app most of the time but when it works, it's useful.

The service sling provides is great. I really, really like it. The app... Is alright. It's fine for employees - they can see their schedule and send and receive messages without revealing everyone's personal phone numbers. But as an administrator, the app is practically worthless. I only have it to respond to messages. Scheduling is impossibly complicated in the app, much faster to do on paper. The app also doesn't allow you to send announcements, at least not that I've found. There's also no way to view an announcement again. I wish it had a timer (available for x days) The UI also seems to be difficult for new employees to understand. There are too many different tabs and menus that give the appearance of a lot of features, that don't really exist. The website, however, is great

My favorite part of this app is the chat feature. Our work place is gossip and drama free. My staff chat on Sling about all things work related and not work related. I think it has really helped the staff feel like a work family. The scheduling feature is convenient. Employees can swap shifts without having to run it by me, but I can still see the shift trades. It makes "request off's" much more manageable and organized. We also use it to clock in and out.
