I can only talk to people within my company/network but what about other people and other companies so for me this doesn’t work
Issues on iPhone 2/5
Not sure why but several people within my office all have iPhones and all have issues with the app recognizing us as genuine users - some of us were even previously signed in and now it won’t log us in and instead gives error messages.
Works good when it wants to but too much of a hassle to use on a regular basis. The support pages are awful, only questions pertaining to those signed in.
Great way to connect. 4/5
By NMI IPhone User
Great app 👍🏽 Love being able to connect with our incredible partners and leaders. Easy to use for the most. Serves its purpose for our team.
With the recent update, I no longer see the “Photos” tab when in our profile. Before the update I thought this was a great way to organize our photos and find them easily as well because they didn’t get lost in the timeline.
BUT I do see that we can still add photos to albums we created prior to the update when you are writing a post/adding a photo. Just click the drop down arrow at the top, and choose the the album you want these pics to be added to.
Iphone app is very average 2/5
Its just a gray facebook for work related stuff. The group and layouts are confusing.
I love this application but having to use a separate messaging app seems redundant. I think that everything should be integrated into one app.
Turning a respectable business into high school 1/5
This app has turned the company I work for into a media obsessed circus. Managers and staff stoping to take pictures and videos at inappropriate moments such as recording fallen service men and women coming home (tacky and very disrespectful) also creating false narratives as most people do online but this is not high school and we are not attention needing children. Too much posting on the app and it is as if my colleges at work do not have a social life outside of the “workplace”.
Why 2 Apps 2/5
Why would I want a team space app AND a team chat app? Well I don’t. Ridiculous when the whole idea of these programs is to simplify and streamline work communication.
We would love to use this but it won’t let us set up an account. For some reason it won’t accept our company email. 😒
This app will not let me register with the email I use for my business matters.
Hate the notifications 1/5
I tried turning off notifications when coworkers join(there’s 10,000s of us). Never stops notifying me. Please fix.
Two Apps 1/5
Why not make it seven apps? There is literally no reason that this system should be in two separate apps. It creates a less-than-seamless approach to our workflow, which is both frustrating and unprofessional. Maybe your teams should take a few courses on app design. I’m sure the friendly folks over at Apple can help.
Great idea but needs a little push 4/5
I love the idea of a business related social media. I wish there was a way to sync my Facebook business page to my workplace account. I wish bot building would be easier. I have spent 2 days trying to configure a bot and all failed. I love the aspect of all company based email addresses can login without a invitation. A custom login page with company's logos would be more friendly.
Can’t sign up 1/5
Won’t let me use either one of my emails, so I can’t even sign up!
Universal links don’t work. 2/5
By i g z
This app is a mess, but my biggest gripe is the fact that universal links into workplace don’t open the app. The system emails you with relevant posts, but they include a half-sentence preview of their contents (useless!!!!) You’d think that tapping the “view on workplace” button therein would open the app, what with universal links being set up and everything. But no. instead I get taken to safari, where I have to log in to view the posts. The whole thing is extremely frustrating.
In no way shape or form does my work or Work place need access to my personal Facebook account to log me in. This does not keep my work safer in anyway- let’s just share all of our personal information with Facebook, that way they can just hack it all at the same time.
Won’t download 1/5
Hard to use it when it takes more than a day just to get it on my phone. :(
Push Notifications 1/5
So there are tons of people that don’t receive push notifications. As a mobile first company, it stuns me at how everyone gets ignored that has this issue. What’s the deal? Do Walmart employees have this issue as well?
Home screen is stuck on “create group” or “find groups” - can’t see the feed! Makes it pretty useless.
Great but slowly getting worse 3/5
By Barton Smith
Workplace is amazing for increasing transparency and communication across the company and for providing tools like Live.
But in typical Facebook fashion, a lot of sloppy features are being released before they’re ready. For example, the new calendar integration is cool except that the app constantly prompts me to respond to invites, even on weekends, and there is no option to turn notifications or the feature off.
Why would you split apps? 2/5
We liked Slack but the limits were annoying. Ryver has a great feature set but it is not very polished. I thought this would be better but the chat app is separate. Why would I want two apps? That is just stupid.
Workplace is amazing!! 4/5
Workplace has changed the way my business communicates as a company! The only thing I would like to see changed is the ability to upload files and documents via the app instead of having to use a desktop.
Good and bad 4/5
Great way to communicate with your office. Everyone has Facebook so there’s no learning curve. Buy the APP freezes and crashes. Can be very frustrating.
UNot User friendly 2/5
By Romey Lynch
Why can’t we use our own email to setup company workflow on Facebook work. Most of the businesses choose basic internet tools effectively to reduce the costs. Domain costs for email and cloud servers are not secure like face book work. But Facebook forces the users to buy a domain from another party. What’s the use of that. Why can’t we use normal Facebook if logging setups to use this one with these secure private features. I love this app and platform, but somehow other staffs are not using.
97 percent of our clients and all the staffs are Facebook users.
We hope to see the easy setup methods any time soon.

New Version Fail 1/5
By Notification Overload
I can no longer see my feed with the recent update. When I log in it wants me to "Find Groups" or "Create Groups". I have go to individual pages to view any posts. Please fix
Invalid e-mail? 1/5
I've got a business e-mail at my company's domain. Invalid how? 🤔
Pretty good so far 4/5
I've been using this for almost a month and I generally really like it, but there are obvious downsides. It doesn't support multiple profiles and there are many cases where one may have multiple Workplace accounts (i.e., contractors, parents belonging to various schools, etc.). I'd love to see this addressed in the future.
The most powerful weapon to decouple work from my personal FB account 5/5
The most powerful weapon to decouple work from my personal FB account
Keeps staff in the loop 5/5
The negative reviews come from folks who don't understand the app. This is for organizations that have their own email domain. Not for public email. Serious companies and corporations. Works as described.
Wont let me use my email account 1/5
I would love to use it but it won't let me use my email account.
Need to be open mind 2/5
I believe this is a great app, BUT, it only allows you to add same domain name emails, I have a starter and I don't have a domain name but we use free services like gmail and yahoo and hotmail. That's the first limitation I had and it's the biggest.
Won't download. 1/5
Won't download. 🤷🏼♀️
Nice if it worked...... 1/5
By B & M painting and staining
I'd really like to try out this app, but every single email I enter after the apps installed it says"you need to choose a different email. I entered every email I have and it says the same thing. This would be a great app for my business, but I deleted it.
Great tool 5/5
Work Place is a great way to keep your team connected. I have the opportunity to be part of an organization that is located in different countries, and this way we can work together, we feel connected and part of the team. WP gives you the opportunity to post articles, videos, links for announcements, meetings etc. WP makes easier to share ideas and help other teammates to grow.
Log in 1/5
By Tony borshevik
Logged me out, now every time it brings me to the "Work Chat would like to log you in using single sign on" page, and every time I hit "Allow" it does nothing. Very frustrating. So 1 star since it's not even usable.
Verification Email Not Received 1/5
Can't even get the verification email. Why would entrust my entire organization to this?
Useless-Can't Log In & No Way to Report Errors/Bugs 1/5
Out of the blue & for no reason whatsoever, the app logged me out two days ago. Ever since, whenever I try to log back in I get an error message on the screen. It's not about my login & my password is correct; it's an operational error. Well, when I navigate through the app to try to report the air the screen it takes me to simply has no option for actually reporting the error or the bug. And yes I'm running the latest update of the app and the latest update of the iOS. I'm shocked that there is just NO easy way on the site to log/report bugs. Crazy! What a total waste of my time and of people's money who are actually paying for the service for themselves and their communities. Way to go, Facebook. Thumbs wayyy down. BTW, the error msg I keep getting is (FBAPIErrorDomain error 1.) So if you're getting it, too, know that you're not alone, unfortunately. 😣
Screen sharing is an important part of collaboration too. 3/5
Please include it in mobile and desktop.
Crashes on my iPhone 6S Plus 1/5
The app crashes every time I open it. This started happening ever since i upgraded to the current version on 5/12/17. I am running the latest version of iOS.
Good App But 👇🏻 3/5
By Fatma Al Musawi
It needs to be improved as most of the times it brings all posts on the top. Or some posts have the option of (seen by) where others don't.
There's no option to block a user, that's highly required please.
Not complete 2/5
By Va beach rob
There is nothing here for assigning Tasks (no task management) at all for employees, this is supposed to be a workplace right and you can't assign tasks? No real project management like teamwork/Asana/etc. Come on. No calendar for scheduling/due dAtes etc. Just group chat and a totally SEPARATE app for chatting directly. So stupid it has to be 2 apps and not an all in 1 solution. The only thing this is good for is chatting with your team.
Worthless release notes 1/5
The release notes are worthless. Its not like they are going to claim the new version is worse and contains more bugs. A little content here would be great. I don't want to have to look in the app to find out what's new when there is a place here on the app store designed to communicate this information.
Workplace rocks 5/5
Best app to communicate with my colleagues for discussing on tasks. I normally create group for having streamline status and collaboration on that
Just like using FB! 5/5
Workplace is great, there is virtually no learning curve if you're used to FB! I've yet to try out the calling and conferencing type of features. Would be great if outlook and calendar were integrated to the Notification Center.
Fix sound settings 1/5
I like the app but the sound configurations simply doesn't work. You set the sounds to off but it keeps turning on again.
No longer have app. Stuck in updates 1/5
I hate the notifications. I no longer need this app and have since deleted it. Even if I redownload it it will not go away. Make it stop.
Watch app please 5/5
Please run this app on apple watch too
No access 5/5
By Girish giri
Need this for students
Requires Work Email 1/5
I'm an independent contractor and I work with different people and different teams. I get the general idea of who this is for, mainly to track the activities of a company then sell that information 🤔 but what about us small businesses who could benefit from this? Not one app can compete with GroupMe...
