"Great scheduling software"

What do you like best?

Very easy to allocate projects / clients to tasks. Many other software didn't have a clear time allocation or overview week by week of the schedule. Float is very transparent, quick and easy to use and view the work an individual or team has booked. The reporting feature is also very handy to see where time has been spent by whom and if we are going over time!

What do you dislike?

The only feature I would recommend that isn't currently available is to duplicate time blocks easily, you can drag similar length projects across days, but sometimes I may want to work 3h on one day and 2h on another currently I'd have to enter the task twice, may be easier if I could just copy and duplicate then edit the time needed only.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Float is a case of use and implement it into your schedule or don't use it all, we initially had paper briefs and a scheduling white board, we did away with all of that and haven't looked back. It's most effective when used to the full across every team member.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has brought increased efficiencies across our design team, making it much easier to get projects briefed in, time allocated and client managed properly.

Response from Glenn Rogers of Float

Hey Dan, thanks for the feedback! You can duplicate a task by holding SHIFT as you drag the task. Then you can drag the height of the task to reduce it down to 2h. I hope that helps!

"Inspired scheduling tool with beautiful UX"

What do you like best?

Float is a really nice piece of software to use. Great attention has been paid to the UX, making efficient use of screen real estate, infinite scrolling in all directions, nice layout and an amazing search and filter toolbar. It's very easy to learn to use and although the design is simple, there is some clever logic going on that optimises your workflow.

What do you dislike?

My only real complaint is that (at least in the version we're using) it's not possible to lock down values in lookups. This results in inconsistent use of fields, making it difficult to analyse the data across projects and teams. For example you cannot set up a global task list, so each time you create a project you have to define the task types again and try to keep them consistent with your other projects.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have around 100 people working on around 20 projects at any time. Many of these people work across multiple projects simultaneously. It's difficult to plan your capacity and delivery timescales in such an environment, but Float makes this about as easy to do and as transparent as it could be. Bravo!

"Streamlined product that sticks to its core competency really well"

What do you like best?

I use Float for resouring with creative team members and developers, and it gets the job done well and in a visually appealing manner. They add necessary and not overwhelming updates to the product to enhance the user experience.

What do you dislike?

I'd like the ability to audit jobs a bit easier, but that may be a product of our large company use rather than Float. Very minimal if any things I dislike about this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Float is a resourcing product. Do not try to manipulate this product into a project management, billing or other tool. I value Float for sticking to its core competency, resourcing, and using it in this manner will be the most valuable use you receive from this product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Team members understanding what is on their workload for the day, and the amount of time they have been given to spend on those activities. It keeps a wide team aligned and therefore hitting deadlines and scoped hours.

"Multi disciplinary studio management top line "

What do you like best?

The simple usability of the software. How quick it is to add jobs, extend and move jobs around to different people. Flexible scrolling through the weeks. So easy to set someone up and get started with very minimal training. Report system very useful for monthly reports. For top line project management this is the perfect tool.

What do you dislike?

The search bar sometimes doesnt work or show particular jobs on occasion. Search seems to only work within the month you are viewing, rather then showing a job from a previous month. This is intermittent and sometimes works to find what you are looking for when refreshed. Still need to test this after the software update to see if it has been resolved.

Doesn't refresh for designers, so we have updated and moved jobs around and they aren't aware as their float has remained the same, unless they manually refresh the window.

Would be great to see more in depth project management potential, such as uploading briefs, designs and signing them off all on this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For very easy to use workflow management that everyone can get on board with and understand (especially coming from paper based or Excel system before) this is a great first step into digital project management for design. You can straight away see resource, book out weeks in advance and set deadlines. Plus the designers can mark on their jobs whether it was completed so PM's know straight away.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently managing a team of 9 designers in a multi disciplinary team with 30+ different jobs daily. Tool has worked perfectly well for top line management of workflow and constant changing priorities. Visually easy to understand. Since the recent update the software has performed so much better then expected and has made a massive difference to usability. Reporting monthly on resource was never in place before this tool so this allows us to be transparent.

"Lifesaver! Great tool for scheduling across multiple teams and offices"

What do you like best?

I've been using float for almost a year now. It has made SUCH a difference in allowing our teams to be able to track where and when individuals are working from home/out of office/on holiday on a simple and unified platform. The tool is also incredibly user-friendly and makes it easy for anyone to be able to use it on a day to day basis. I also love how quickly you can add and edit to your projects in your calendar.

What do you dislike?

Nothing major comes to mind about the tool that I dislike particularly. With that said, some potential improvements could include:

- Allowing you to drag and drop to copy a schedule from one person to another, instead of just relocating it

- A way to see notes on a project by just hovering over the icon rather than clicking on it

- Having additional colors to color code the calendar would also be helpful - we have 15+ people using the platform at a time and it would be useful to be able to have more colors to help organize people's calendars

- The relocation of tasks can also sometimes be a bit tricky

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'd absolutely recommend people to try the product for themselves! You don't realize what you're missing until you've tried it for yourself.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a huge time saver for me - allows me to easily access calendars of large groups of people without having to view each person's calendar individually. Float also helps keep everyone across both of our offices more organized.

"A top resource planning and scheduling tool"

What do you like best?

The ease of use of Float it top class. From the creating of projects to assign resources to, creating of tasks in the projects and managing the milestones is super easy. The calendar grid format makes it really easy to see what resources are assigned to and makes it really simple to manage your resource scheduling. Access management is good too. The reporting is decent. The UI is a delight to work with. These days it is all about the user experience. We make use of the Float API suite too to automate the synchronisation (create, deletes and updates) of our team's approved leave request between our leave management system and Float. This saved us loads of manual work to ensure that information is the same across systems. There is not a lot you cannot do with Float.

What do you dislike?

The only small gap I have found is a specific operational reporting requirement I had that the reporting suite didn’t cater for. I required a daily view for resources that did not exist. While there is a weekly view, it does not seem to offer a day-by-day report that can be imported into Excel (through CSV or other means).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Float is a well rounded product that caters for most of our planning and resourcing needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Float UI is so easy to use. Doing resource allocation is quick and easy using Float. The API has helped us a lot and saved loads of manual work for syncing approved leave requests between our leave request system and Float. The reporting is good and covers most needs.

"Great tool for scheduling across a busy creative team"

What do you like best?

The quick and intuitive means by which projects and jobs can be added, updated and moved around in schedules. It's a really handy way to both view and quickly update the full picture of workloads, schedules, availability and project progress.

What do you dislike?

While excellent for immediate-term planning, I would like to see a little more in the way of options for longer-term, or non-date-specific, planning - perhaps the ability to add a "pending" column that sits persistently alongside the day and date columns, to act as a reminder of jobs that will come onto schedule soon but aren't ready to be assigned to a particular day/week!

It would also be useful to be able to less evenly proportion time across days - e.g. spread a job over two days but assign more hours to one than the other, rather than the equal split as present.

These are feature requests rather than issues, though - on the whole the experience is excellent and does exactly as you'd hope/expect.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been trialling Float in order to replace a pen-and-whiteboard system in our office - it replicates the experience of that board almost exactly, with the added bonus that our team and other teams within the agency can view the schedule from anywhere, rather than needing to be at the office location. So far, with the exception of the minor suggested tweaks above, it has done everything we've needed it to.

"A great purpose-built tool which helps solve a huge problem in agencies."

What do you like best?

I really appreciate the simplicity of this tool. It doesn't take much to set up and only asks you for as much information as it needs in order to be useful. Because it is assumed that the tool will be updated frequently, there isn't a lot of extra data points that are required to set up a person's schedule.

What do you dislike?

In some ways the tool can feel a bit stiff or limited. Because it's built to really do one thing well-- scheduling, new users might look for other features like time tracking or dependencies which are found in similar project planning tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do the free trial and make sure you have full details around the exact problem you are trying to solve with this product and not try to solve too many with one solution, as this product does one thing really well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to plan out multiple projects with a small team and determining when work can start and get done. We are able to see who is available to work on things.

"Keep our studio organised, accountable and active!"

What do you like best?

- being able to allocated multiple jobs to one team member

- colour coding and access to different

- the new feature for dragging jobs down or up for more or less time

- reports on individual and team times and capacity

- The "Time Off" button

- new feature to continuously scroll forward or backwards

- The organisation of clients and jobs

What do you dislike?

- It would be great if we could automatically add our public holidays into float

- I don't like that every time I press enter after filling out a field that it adds the job directly onto the calendar

- It would be great to be able to zoom into a day view of the whole team with working hours next to it (similar to google calendar)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's great for managing time and using it for production or if you have multiple jobs coming in.

Always do the tutorials so you can keep your clients and jobs organized and optimise all the features.

Definitely create teams and use the roles resource as much as you can. This helps with organising teams and allocating jobs to the best people. Especially if you have a large studio that you are trying to manage.

We cast our float schedule to screens in our studio so that the whole team can see what everyone is working on. Very useful.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking projects

Laying out timelines for cost estimates

Evaluating studio capacity

Tracking team leave and overtime

"Float Review for Audio / Visual Studio"

What do you like best?

The feature that we as an audio / visual studio have found the most beneficial is the scheduling feature. This allows us as a team to assign and schedule tasks and projects, and allows each individual to keep track of what the need to complete by when and what is upcoming in the days and weeks ahead. By doing this everyone on the team can log into Float and see what it is each team member is busy on and when it needs to be completed by.

What do you dislike?

As a user i have found that the admin person can schedule tasks and projects for individual team members, but if these need to be changed suddenly then they can only be changed by the admin person and not the individual. I have had one or two occasions when I needed to update and reshuffle my schedule on Float but wasn't able to do so as the admin person was off or not in the office. This caused some scheduling delays for myself.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Float is a valuable tool for us a busy, up-and-coming audio and visual design studio. If you need a central, easily accessible platform to keep track of tasks, projects and individual's work loads on a daily, weekly and monthly basis then I recommend Float as a highly useful tool and one that we are relying on more and more, as the studio gets busier and busier.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Float we have used it extensively the last few months to help our Studio stay on top of the multiple projects we have on the go at one time. With multiple team members working on different projects it has allowed us as a studio to keep on the ball and make sure we meet deadlines, and has allowed us to see what we can take on and when. As the studio is getting busier and busier Float is becoming a vital, central platform that the team rely on daily to produce quality work on time.

"Perfect to manage maintenance teams!"

What do you like best?

We analyzed several reviews before getting a Float license for our maintenance team. What impressed us is the ease of use and immediate approach of the user interface. Even non tech skilled people can easily plan and update activities, without spending too much time on the software itself.

What do you dislike?

So far, almost 1 year after adopting Float, we can't identify any particular downside.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

After a long session of review screening and trials, we decided to stay Float. This software represent the easiest and time saving platform to allocate your personnel on several tasks, regardless the complexity you need to manage in your company or industry. Highly recommended!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Float we are able to coordinate a whole maintenance workforce and schedule all the activities for a manufacturing plant (pharma industry), very efficiently. The software has been thought to be time saving, and allows to focus on what really matters. Learning curve rise pretty immediately, and the final user feels a real benefit.

"CH - Float Review - 16JAN2019"

What do you like best?

Ease of accessibility and ease of use. Mobile application is quite useful, especially being on the go a lot of the time. ROI and forecasting is an excellent and helpful tool incorporated into the application. All features are beneficial in ways that show positive outcomes for the company.

What do you dislike?

Pop-up windows when clicking on a scheduled task have a tendency to cut off wording, making it harder to see the entire scope of the task. The ability to have a larger pop-up screen or scrolling ability would make this issue less bothersome.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The software will benefit productivity and organization in a huge way. Shows signs of return on investment quickly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Assuring productivity and organized scheduling. Also helps tremendously with forecasting and use analysis. Analyzing and running reports of employee allocation has aided in a huge way for adequately on boarding new employees and expanding the company in a way as to maintain productive and profitable.

"If you can get your staff to go all-in, it's useful"

What do you like best?

- Very clear readout & screen real-estate used

- Works very well on all browsers/mobile

- Colour-coding

What do you dislike?

- Reduced functionality for splitting up days

- Unable to mix time-allocated jobs with 'general' task lists for employees which have no discernible time attached

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you're ready for your entire staff to go all-in and use it regularly, else it'll be a point of contention for who is booked on what job.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Float is very difficult to work with if all your staff don't get on board - we often run into trouble where someone has booked a staff member out casually and not used Float because it was a 'quick job', and then the producer is surprised when that staff member isn't working solely on the tasks allocated by Float. An integrated desktop environment or secondary task list would help manage these 'little' things which crop up.

"Overall a Good, Helpful Product"

What do you like best?

Float is quick and easy to use. It takes no time at all to create a new project, add resources and allocate the resources time on the project. It's also easy for our team members to login and see their allocation for the coming weeks.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found a way to zoom in. The blocks are sometimes difficult to see. I've tried only selecting one person but that doesn't change the size or give me the ability to adjust the zoom.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Float for a resource allocation overview. We don't get into the day to day details. We use it to show a projects length, who is assigned to the project and how many hours a day they should be spending on this project to forecast whether they should be assigned to any new projects coming in.

"Float, an essential tool that powers our team scheduling"

What do you like best?

We use Float to schedule tasks across our team, ranging from tasks that take a few hours to complete, to projects that take multiple days or weeks. It gives us the ability to see who is available for scheduling, and allocate (or reschedule) work coming in.

What do you dislike?

We have duplication between Float and our team's Google calendars, but at different levels of granularity, so we can't automate synchronisation. We haven't been able to resolve that, so team members still need to book the work in their calendars as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Float has become essential to our scheduling and traffic, and is the go to place to check our capacity for planning new projects. For our scheduling, it is in constant use to keep track of and allocate work across a diverse team.

"Floatastic"

What do you like best?

Ease of use — the colour coding of projects, easy scaleable time blocks, that everyone has real time view of planning, addition of holidays and leave.

What do you dislike?

Most of the niggles we had with this product have been solved in the latest update. I haven't check on this one yet, but having to use hex codes for colour selection — it's account managers using the software not designers and it's a hassle.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it! It's great.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been using Float for at least 3 years I think and it's an invaluable everyday tool for resources and work flow planning. The whole team checks it daily and it's made work life so much easier to keep projects on track and ensuring we have the right people at the right time.

"Jacks Float review"

What do you like best?

Very easy and simply designed interface and software, I like the way it can keep a mass of information but all of which is easily found if needed. Specific people places and times just moments away. A super useful resourcing tool for us here.

What do you dislike?

To be quite honest I've only been using the software for about 3 months and so far I haven't found anything that has caused me any annoyance or dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I'm used as a resource which is booked on various different jobs each week it allows those booking my time in to do it with ease and for me to organise my weeks before they start by quickly going through whats been booked in when looking specifically at my time.

"Great flow and usability."

What do you like best?

Simply and easy to navigate interface, it's not overly complicated or busy. Streamlines our workflow and allows for a quick overview of what's happening in the coming weeks.

What do you dislike?

When dragging and moving jobs around they always revert back to one day, which can be frustrating. It would be great if it was easier to update client details and leave notes on client files.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It would be great if Float had a feature similar to smart sheets where you could detail our each stage of a job, and then transfer it directly to the standard float layout.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Structuring our weeks and identifying gaps and overrun in our scheduling has been a huge help. Overall, Float has helped us to be more efficient as an agency.

"Float is a great tool for seeing and managing project schedules. "

What do you like best?

Being able to visually see what the whole team is up to in one place. The simplicity of moving around/adjusting schedules on the fly.

What do you dislike?

When tasks need to be reassigned (to other team members) there doesn't seem to be a way to do this in bulk. I have to manually move each piece of the project to the assigned person. I'm pretty new to Float, so I may have not learned how to do this, but at a minimum, it's not obvious or easy to figure out.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have approximately 34 team members and constantly fluctuating project schedules. Float is super helpful for having one place to see what everyone is up to and being able to efficiently schedule project resources.

"Great for managing a development team and multiple projects "

What do you like best?

The ability to set up jobs and duplicate these across multiple employees. The automated colour coding. The ability to only show certain employees and save that as a favourite because it is controlled in query string.

What do you dislike?

When you add one long line of a job e.g. from Jan - April, you can't add a random day where an employee isn't working on that job or task. We get around this by adding the task week by week then adjusting when we add annual leave etc

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Float to manage a large team's working days, and organise sprints etc. It is very useful to visualise the resource available, and ensure we're not adding too many tasks for the hours available in the day.

"Float makes my job infinitely easier"

What do you like best?

I love that I can get a high level overview of where my team is at in one glance, and that my team can get weekly reminders of what their schedule is. The reporting, metrics, and utilization are also super handy.

What do you dislike?

The native color choices are kinda sad. I usually just end up throwing in a random hex code so all of our clients don't look the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just do it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solve our scheduling problem with Float. We operate on a more individual consulting day basis, rather than a block of time with a client. Float provides the best visual for helping me see what's still available. We are also able to keep track of our utilization and other metrics much easier!

"Veratile and easy to use project/people management tool"

What do you like best?

Float is intuitive to use. I really like the layout, clear and with lots of colour options for different staff and projects. Staff (and admin access levels) can be added, revised and removed easily.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, you don't seem to be able to move a batch of tasks similaneously. so if project is delayed, every task for every project member has to be moved individually (which can run into 100's).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the free trial period, test you requirements, sometimes you aren't sure what you need until you can do it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Multi-year, multi-project management visualisation and planning. do i have enough staff in place, with the right skills, are there any pinch-points likely to cause delays (I was looking up to 4 years ahead)

"Fast and easy time planning for teams"

What do you like best?

It's quick and easy to plan out each member of the team's schedules and keep track of how things are progressing. Also, should business or client needs change, it's super simple to move things around.

What do you dislike?

Sadly, there doesn't appear to be any way to have dependent tasks like you would in more of a traditional float chart style setup which would be handy for some projects where tasks must be completed in a series so you don't have to move multiple tasks around one by one.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scheduling has been made quicker and easier so there's been a great timesaving, also the team all have full visibility of what everyone across the agency are doing and what's upcoming.

"Does the job"

What do you like best?

The interface is very simple, pretty, and user-friendly! It's nice to see what projects I have coming up ahead of time - that way I can prepare for them accordingly. I also get an idea of which projects to prioritize based on where they are on a calendar day.

What do you dislike?

I don't make much use of the other tabs besides the Schedule tab. I'm often prompted to update it in the middle of the day, without knowing exactly what updates are taking place.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think it really helps employees to know what projects are coming up. We also have more than one producer, so it helps the producers schedule and prioritize time as needed on designers/dev/motion artists, etc.

"I start a new day with looking at Float."

What do you like best?

It is easy to use and very intuitive. Just one look at Float and I know what work I have to do during the day.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes zoom in / zoom out feature is not working properly, but that might be my device problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In my opinion Float is easiest to use scheduling app.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working as a frontend developer and I start a new day with look at Float so I know what to do. Tasks are added by PM's in my company and I know they like Float too. After all they decided to choose it as our work management app. Without Float it would be much more difficult to manage my day schedule.
