  1. outlook integrations for shifts

    Once a user is assigned a schedule within shifts the schedule should sync to their outlook calendar.

    It would also be nice to see Available shifts in outlook and be able to accept them (or at least link to the shift in teams to be able to accept)

    Thank you for your feedback! We are hard at work improving the Shifts app experience including adding recurring shifts. In the meantime, we wanted to share some tips and tricks to help with some pain-points mentioned:
    1) Make Edits to Your Schedule (Delete, Undo, Minor Copy Edits): Shifts works similarly to Excel in certain regards, so make sure to highlight shifts with your mouse and utilize keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+Z) to copy, delete, or undo actions. We find it helpful doing this particularly in month view and week view.
    2) Copy Button: Use the copy button on the top right to copy any timeframe you need for the entire schedule.
    3) Search for Shifts in Creation Phase: When creating a shift, utilize the search command to find shifts that have already been created in the past.

    We’ll keep you posted when we have more news!

  3. Shifts - Let non owner manage shifts

    Only team members with owner role are able to manage shifts.

    Would be helpfull to define shifts manager seperate from their team role.
    Shifts are also assigned by supervisors, which are only team member and assigning owner role is not desired.

  5. Adding Shifts as team tab

    With Shifts now in place in Teams, it would also be nice to have a channel tab for Shifts, for easy access within the channels themselves.

  6. shifts notifications

    SHIFTS: Notifications for upcoming shifts
    StaffHub sent an email to the user assigned to a Shift, to remind them of an upcoming shift. It would be very helpful to have this as an option Teams.

  7. Notification of requests in Shifts should be more visible

    When working in Shifts on in the desktop client, new requests are not very obvious. Only some requests can be seen as a pulsating entry in the Monthly view for example, but that requires you to have the month in question in view. You need to open the Requests view in Shifts to see the requests.

    The obvious place for these notifications would be to have them visible in the Activity view in the client, where all other notifications are shown.

    What would also be nice-to-have is to have a specific notification easily visible in Shifts itself, so that as…

  13. Support on-call shifts.

    I would like to create an on-call schedule for employees who are required to be on standby for multiple days. Shifts can currently be a maximum of 23h and 45min long. This prevents the creation of on-call shifts that routinely last for weeks.
    Suggestion: Support multi-day shifts, full 24h shifts, or support on-call schedules natively.

  15. Shifts connector for Flow or Logic apps

    It would be great to have a connector for Shifts to Flow of Logic Apps, just like Stafhub has currently.

    Actions can include:
    - Get a schedule for a team in a certain timeperiod
    - Get the shift for a teammember
    - Get all teammembers with shift X on day Y.
    - Assign shift to teammember(s)
    - Change Shift of teammember(s).

    Triggers can include:
    - When your own shift changes
    - When a new shift is added
    - When there is a request for change/absence etc...

  16. Recover shifts data

    Unforntonaly shifts data is not recoverbable at the moment.
    We will like that you could have a recycle bin or a versions options available for Microsoft shifts.

    Also the we could have a retention policy for Microsoft shifts.

  19. Teams Shifts - Option to not require approval for shift offers & swaps

    Owners need to approve all shift offers and swaps, it would be good to have an option not to make approval mandatory, so owners manage the shift schedule, but members can swap and offer shifts without requiring approval.

  20. Shifts: Don't display reason for absence

    Desired Outcome:

    When employees request time off, give Managers the option to not display the reason given to the rest of the team. I.e. Make the reason (= color and icon) for the absence visible to Managers only.

    Reason:

    Right now even personal reasons such as sickness are publicly accessible to anyone. E.g. another employee could therefore track why a colleague is not in the office that day and draw conclusions about personal matters such as their Health from it. This would require consent from every employee; this consent is freely withdrawable under GDPR. One employee alone could therefore block…
