Real nice to open it and see my schedule--and everyone else's too. And send and receive messages with the boss and also other employees. The annoying thing is that opening and looking at a message doesn't turn off the little number that shows I have a new message on the icon badge. The bold print showing which messages are new is hardly different from the ones I've read. Since looking at a message won't turn off the new message notification, I have to be careful that indeed I have seen them.

I love using Homebase! My top favorite feature is if I can't seam to clock in or out there is someone who can help me and fix my error! A definite panic helper. I really love being able to see my wages as they are earned! I also don't want to forget the helpful members in chat. At least mine, always looking out for affordable entertainment and events for all ages! I definitely recommend :)

Loved it, very easy to use. The only part I didn't like was trying to connect my bank account to it, the way it is set up is confusing and when it gave me my security questions my bank lady did my password wrong and I got locked out permanently leaving me unable to connect my bank account and not able to draw money out of my check. But other than that little issue I absolutely loved how easy it was to use compared to other work apps, my favorite it tells you how much time is left on your break!
