"Great Data Management System for Absences"

What do you like best?

Once you log in to the software I like the ease at which you can put in an absence or partial day off. It's very self explanatory.

What do you dislike?

Recently a change was made to the main login page. It took me and another colleague probably 15 minutes to figure out how to get into the system to put in an absence. Before it just took me directly to the log-in screen then to the place where I enter my info.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Frontline for business solutions in the academic setting. They have streamlined the way that teachers put in their absences and days off, as well as other staff on campus. The layout of the new interface took just a little time to adjust to seeing as the change from our other product was not that much different. It was a little more difficult to login at first but now having used the new system pretty regularly, I am much more use to the program.

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

A business problem that is solved with Frontline is streamlining absences of the staff on campus in one place, as well as with all the staff on campus not just the teachers who need substitutes.

"Frontline absence management has made my job much easier."

What do you like best?

I get all the absences in the next several months for the whole district and I can pick and choose any substitute assignment I like in any school I prefer. It gives lots of preferences. You can block out the schools you dont prefer, the timings you dont want a call and block out any days youre busy as non work days. It also merges several districts if you happen to work for more than one.

What do you dislike?

The only problem I ever had was when I put in a non work day by mistake and wanted to take it off. I could not delete it. luckily I had the contacts for the schools so I called them to see if they needed a sub, otherwise I would have gone jobless for that day.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its user friendly and organises yur life.

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

i can plan the next several days of work with this application. Previously I used to be awaken by the school management to tell me Im needed at school. it has taken the guess work out of subbing.

What School Resource Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Need a Sub?!"

What do you like best?

Frontline education helps me find a sub when I need one! Whenever I need to call out sick or take. Personal day I hop on this platform and find a sub. Usually I already have a sub, but if I am in need of Someone who I don’t know this platform finds it for me!!! Love it

What do you dislike?

I wish I was able to cancel jobs or modify jobs on my side of the screen after an absence has been created. Sometimes it can be difficult to get in contact with my secretary of a change needed to be made ASAP to avoid a sub coming In that you don’t want. I just think it would be faster if you did it yourself.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It’s great and easy to use!

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

Helping finding coverage for someone in my classroom if I need them

"Need Substitute Teachers? Get Frontline!"

What do you like best?

Their program allows us to get the substitutes that we need when our sick (cough, cough) teachers call in. It is a very easy system for them to use, and they have a pretty decent success rate.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if there was a way for teachers to be able to cancel a sub job on their own. Currently, we have to do it ourselves.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely consider it if I were looking for such a service. I don't know how they compare price-wise though.

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

Teachers calling sick can be devastating to our daily schedule. Frontline provides the platform for how we find substitute teachers.

"Frontline does a little bit of everything"

What do you like best?

The ability to digitize everyday forms and apply routing procedures to help manage them. With so much made about going paperless and saving time, the best feature is setting up specific routing paths so that the forms get to the people they need, and can be approved in a digital manner like a digital "signature".

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, there isn't the ability to create forms on your own. Everything pretty much has to run through Frontline, which is time consuming. The ability to be able to create forms on my own would go a long way. Also, even if Frontline creates the form for you, making edits isn't easy and often times you need to let them know to make the necessary changes. Again, time consuming. They have been nice about the process though, and willing to make the changes, as often as needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are a lot of options and features with Frontline, as they pretty much do everything that is needed in education, and recent teaming with Aesop just solidifies this notion. A good program for all things professional development, with the ability to create workshop catalogs, allow staff to register for events/workshops, and award/track professional development hours. I would make Frontline a consideration, but note that things aren't always easy with this platform and can at times be frustrating.

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

Paperless archive of district forms, digital forms with designated routing procedures, assessment and evaluation tools, and tracking of professional development for staff.

"Frontline Applitrack a breeze for consortium districts"

What do you like best?

Our county is in a consortium for recruitment and we enjoy the shared data. Frontline makes it easy for applicants to apply for multiple positions with a single application, at multiple districts within out region. It is a time saver for the applicant as well as for the hiring managers. On the consortium level, we enjoy the ease of use and the reporting and filtering. Going through applications in realtime is a saver. Multiple users can review submissions at the same time and all users see their notes. It has been a tremendous help in information sharing.

What do you dislike?

The consortium is limited in how data and add-ons can be used. Overall, we find more positive than negative in the consortium model for our region.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Frontline has made our applicant tracking and recruitment easier than ever.

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

We are using Frontline for applicant tracking. This platform give a "one stop shop" for our applicants. We are able to share data and review information across districts in the region.

"Frontline Insights - User Friendly"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of accessing the application on my phone and view all of my priority information. It makes needing a substitute and submitting the request so much easier that having to log into my computer. The website is easy to navigate, it has places to upload needed documents to both the supervisor and the substitute. It has a place to list preferred substitutes and gives those substitutes preferential treatment. I like that I am able to leave feedback for my substitutes. I like that it automatically notifies my principal and secretary that an absence has created. It also notifies them when the position has been filled.

What do you dislike?

Not all districts that use the web based program utilize the mobile app. It took a little bit to figure out how to locate my absence balance reasons as well as how to select preferred substitutes. This isn't totally a fault of the program, but partially the district not providing training.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As a user, it is friendly and easy to use.

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

It makes assigning substitute teachers to needed positions easier than previous programs. Teachers can access all of their available days for sickness, personal, etc. Teachers are able to leave feedback for substitute teachers. Teachers are able to upload lesson plans so the sub can access them before they arrive.

"Frontline"

What do you like best?

I love their technology! I use it for school . It is so easy to access IEPs as well as call out of work!! I am able to request a sub without calling into work!

What do you dislike?

I’m happy with this company and do not have any dislikes!

There are so many benefits to frontline. Substitute teachers can easily pick up jobs and teachers can easily put in their time off. The IEP portion of frontline is so easy to access and manipulate. I am able to write IEPs without any issue! It is so organized and clear cut

"First Year"

What do you like best?

I like that Frontline keeps track of training, when they are and which ones I have participated in. Having this online allows for more organization rather than having papers in a filing cabinet for myself, as well as administrators.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that after a certain amount of time courses become stuck in "limbo" between being approved and being completed. I have needed to contact administration to "complete" courses in order for them not be stuck being labeled as "in-progress".

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure that you complete any training or any closing surveys right after the training. Following a period of time they become trapped "in-progress".

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

Frontline is allowing for district wide professional development to be better organized and allow for participants to register for the courses that they which.

"Aesop/Frontline and Absence Management"

What do you like best?

In the short <6 months we have used this product, our teachers, employees and classified staff have enjoyed the change immensely, and it has shorted our down time.

What do you dislike?

It was fast and easy - a great switch from SADIE, our previous absence management system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Aesop/Frontline does the GUI interface well, and sets up companies fast. My previous company, the Evergreen School District, also switched from SADIE to Aesop and it was universally accepted, much easier, and set the company on better ground overall. The addition of selecting preferred substitutes while you are home sick is amazing.

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

Absences, teacher substitutes, time off, etc.

"Appraising tool"

What do you like best?

It's a good way to communicate between the appraiser and the employee as it stores the entire comments and documents used for an educator evaluation.

What do you dislike?

It can offer more folder systems. All documents are placed in the form of a list and it is difficult to get to the form I need in a short time.

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

Entire employee performance evaluation is done using this software. Yearly goals are set here. Appraiser comments and post conference feedback is store here.

"Easy to use and schedule your absences "

What do you like best?

We use this software to create and schedule absences for teachers. It is very easy to use. Substitute teachers can block out dates they are unavailable and administrators/teachers can easily identify their preferences for a guest teacher.

What do you dislike?

I would like more notification options. For example, there should be a function to notify substitutes when a new job has posted.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tool for absence management, great for school districts

Scheduling for teachers and substitutes

I enjoy the updated version but there are parts that could still use some revamping.
