  1. Fixed template shifts with central edition as with permissions

    Hard to get, if already available, or truly missing, a way to make fixed shifts as to be able of withstanding edition across all equal shifts going forward from a give date. Currently, as soon as a single shift is edited it becomes different from previously equal shifts all around, which in turn makes manually updating each one meant to keep being equal quite cumbersome. This should only be optional, and allow permanent definition for shifts as they remain on permission types, so updating its template model, all sharing the same template get updated. If not possible, the addition of…

  2. Ability to assign slots to group members in Shifts via mobile Teams App

    Make it possible to move or allocate an open shift to a group member via the mobile Teams App. Also the ability to move a shift back to open shifts from a user with the ability to comment a reason why as a tracking facility in shifts would be great!

  3. planing shifts for a whole quarter or year

    think about a team that has on-call responsibility for several customers. A team member has then on-call duty for some of the customers at the same day, week or even month. Therefore it would be great if shift is capable of

    Enter and showing shifts by week, month, quarter or year and grouped by customer or by employee.

  4. Shift - Manage real working time and display real planning

    When people ask for a day off (or couple of hours off) it's displayed on another line- many lines if you have more than 2 events on a day.... - and the planning begin to be hard to read -
    Beside that, the counts of people by day (or hour) is false as the shift do not disappear from the planning - the calculation of working hours / days off are not done

  5. (Shifts/Staffhub)Allow the ability to modify a current member's schedule permissions

    Hello Microsoft's Customer Advocacy Team,

    Currently, there is no way to modify team members' Shift permissions without remove and re-adding each member. Please enabled the toggle button; "Allow this person to create or update schedules" , that is showed while adding a new member.

    Thank you!

  6. Shifts - Adding colors/options to "day notes" on Schedule calendar

    On the scheduler, we can note important days on the calendar, but it is so small! It would be nice to have a way to make it bigger, colored, or more prominent if we add things like "suspend day" or "office closed for holiday" , etc.

  7. Ability to copy schedule into different teams

    It would be nice to highlight a schedule, copy it and paste it into another team on shifts. I am apart of multiple teams. We use the shifts portion to show people when we are at the hospital or not. How it is now is I have to input my schedule, each individual day onto 3 shifts. If I could copy and paste that would make life easier.

  8. Shifts: Filter by color or by request type

    It would be nice to have the ability to filter by color or by request type since you can already filter by user and date.

  9. Customise visible work hours in Shifts day view

    Instead of viewing 24 hours in the day view of a shifts schedule, allow customisation so that you only see the hours that you need to use (e.g. between 0600-1800)

  10. Import "Open Shifts"

    It would be great if you could import open shifts in Shifts. An example- We have data that generates predictive shifts needed for each location. It would be great to be able to import those as open shifts and then managers would be able to assign those shifts to their reports.

  11. Name colors

    The ability to apply colors to shifts is great, but I need to give the colors labels. Different departments are forced to use the same color schemes but those colors mean different things. If I highlight something in gray in my department, it should not be labeled Gray, i should be able to name that color so it says something like concrete or asphalt. But that gray means something else to a different department so each Group should be able to label it what they need. After that a simple color wheel can allow me to make all the colors…

  12. Location

    Currently, for the Time Clock feature, you can only have one location per Team, but it would be nice to have the flexibility of multiple locations.

    We have student workers all on the same team, but in multiple locations around campus, so the only way that GPS time punches will work is to split them up amongst multiple teams, which becomes cumbersome.

  13. Share single group schedule

    I would love the ability to share/copy an individual team's schedule, not the schedules of the entire team. Currently, when I share/copy a schedule, I need to coordinate with my coworker who manages another group within our large team
    so we do not share our calendars multiple times. If there was an option to share and copy for each group, I would have the option to make updates to the schedules I manage without meeting with my coworker before I share them.

  14. Conflicting Shifts in multiple teams

    A user is member of 1.2.3-8 teams.
    The user is holding a shift the first of December from 9-17.
    The user is shifting teams in the app. This team owner is requesting someone to take a open shift at the first of December in the peak hours from 10-14.
    The user want’s to help, and takes the shift. This is a conflicting shift – but there is no warning.

  15. Colour Code Time Off Requests

    Have each Custom Option for Time Off Requests as a different colour, instead of having to manually change each time you choose an option. This would make things so much easier to see at a glance.

  17. Show All Assigned Shifts

    Show Shifts from multiple Teams in the Scheduled Shifts location within the mobile application.

    It does not make it easy if someone is part of multiple Teams to view all of their Shifts.

  18. Import Shift activities

    To be able to break down a shift into different activities at the moment i have to click every single shift an add them manually. I would appreciate to have a import function so that the activities can be planned and typed within excel and then imported. This would improve the use of shifts enormously.

  19. Functionality to add days off like bank holidays in Shifts that will apply for all team members.

    It would be great to add days off in Shifts that will apply for all members of the group. It should be set by Group as we may have people located in different countries.

  20. Attach colour to the "Time Off" options

    Can we set a standard colour to the time off requests? At the moment this is being done manually and we are having to remember the colours for each type of leave e.g. Annual Leave = Green, Leave in Lieu = Blue, Public Holiday = Pink etc.
