See pros and cons

Pros

Easy to setup, does what it has to, simple in use.

Cons

Some errors and warnings are thrown at wrong moments it seems. Pricing was promised to not change. We had 50 seats for Leavin a very long time while only using 40 seats or something. We wanted to expand and get a subscription for Clockin as well and were then forced to pay almost double for our long running Leavin module. This was against the email where it was promised the pricing would change if you didn't want to / didn't change the subscription. Ofcourse we got some explanation saying that it was because our subscription changed but that just seems like a way of twisting words and concepts to just get us to pay more... Until before that I was very pleased with Calamari. Now I have a sour taste in my mouth.

Main reason was for the pricing, but that was recently doubled on us...

Our Customer Success Team contacted you about the issue and I believe everything is clear now. We're sorry for the misunderstanding and hope that you will be happy with using both modules now.

Reviewed on 04/04/2022

Pros

I specifically wanted a product with Microsoft 365 single sign-on, and geolocation.

Cons

The sign-in process for sso integration could be better. It's not obvious to my users they need to press the "red square" instead of trying in their password first. Support also isn't available during our business hours.

Response from Calamari

Thank you for the review.
We're very sorry that you can't reach us. Our company is based in Poland (in UTC +2 - CEST time zone). We're working between 9 AM - 6 PM. If you can't reach us in those hours, please contact our Customer Success team via e-mail - they'll try to help you with setting up the meeting.

If you'd like to turn off the sing in via logging and password you can do it in Configuration -> Permissions.

Simple, Easy, fast and cheap

Reviewed on 04/04/2022

Pros

Simple and easy way to track daily time for each employee without the need to track time based on projects (micro-management). It took less than 48 hours to install set up all the structure. The overview for the holiday and PTO is also perfect and helps a lot everyone to schedule is time-off/holiday.

Cons

You need to understand the way that the platform is working to use it at his full potential. Missing a connexion with the Calamari Agenda and our Mac Agenda. So far, we need to update manually our booking calendar and the Calamari calendar.

Response from Calamari

Thank you for your review.
We;re glad Calamari meets your expectations. FOr better calendar synchronization, please contact our Customer Success team. They will help you find the best way to set things up.
