    It'd be great to be able to embed the calendar/schedule from Shifts into the Teams site.

  2. shift notifications once approved/record keeping

    send email notification to admin assistants for pay and tracking purposes.
    this should be adjustable to email multiple people including requestor and receiver of shots once the request has been approved. there should also be a way to keep track of all requests, approved or denied, for the team and should be able to filter and print or export requests.

  3. Timeclock Feature

    I would like to have a Timeclock feature to let employees clock in or out for their scheduled shift. Then at the end of the week create a timesheet for payroll.

  4. Trello cards attached to Shifts

    So when someone is on shift for a particular task they know without being told what they're working on that day and what they'll need to complete that task. We have Trello cards with checklists and comments underneath that help us keep on track with what is being provided to whom and when, what equipment is being used, etc. If we could view these directly in Shifts, it would save a lot of copy pasting.

  5. Allow multiple shifts day to be copy/paste

    An employee has an nights hift and an evening shift the same day so teams makes a second row for the evening shift.

    If these shifts are copied and pasted to another employee witch does not have two rows already the second shift is added to the employee below.

    Please fix.

  6. Ability to move a Shift Schedulke from one Team to Another

    We have been "Piloting" shifts and in our initial "uninformed" implementation we have created our pilot schedule in one of our daily Teams. Now that we know a little more about the product and the way it sets up permissions against the team etc, we want to create a dedicated Shift Management team where we can manage Leave, Events, Client Workshops etc. To make this transition a little easier we would like the ability to easiliy Move a Shift Schedule from one Team to another. Thanks for consideration.

  7. Change notification from bot when adding user to Shift.

    When in Shifts we add a user that did not exist in a Team, then in Teams we get a bit scary message Bot user - very long guid - has added user X to the team. It would be better if we would get information that user was added by the person who did it in Teams. If this is not possible, then at least the message should say "Shifts bot has added user X on behalf of user Y. "

  8. Shifts - Expanded assignee print

    When viewing the shifts grouped by shift an option to print out with a view of who is covering that work would be useful for the management. We have shifts but for each shift you are assigned different work, and the management would like a hard-copy listing for each task who has been assigned there, at a glance without having to scan through the by employees view to find out who is assigned what on that day.

  10. Remember user's choice for view settings in Shifts

    It looks like the "Your Shifts" view is default in the Quick Access View dropdown. When user selects "Team Shifts", this choice should be remembered instead of going back to the "Your Shifts" each time.

    It would be a lot more user friendly if it would not reset to default everytime, but rather remember the last choice of the user, or at least enable the user to set the default view depending on his/her needs.

    Thank you.

  14. In Shifts allow time off to be colored coded in settings, not each request

    In shifts setting for time off requests, allow to color coordinate time off requests in addition to a specific icon, versus having to change the color on each time off request

  15. Define Clock in/out Parameters

    The ability to define the clock in/out parameters would be helpful. For example, if an employee is scheduled to start work at 9:00 AM, a manager could set a restriction for the earliest clock-in time being 5 minutes before the start of the shift. This helps keep employee pay in-line with their schedule, and encourages them to start work when their shift actually starts.

  20. “Outside of Business Hours” Status Option

    It would be great if there was an “outside of business hours” status option so that you could still receive notifications if you would like, but those trying to reach you would know you likely won’t respond.
    This would allow those who need to still be informed to remain logged in without appearing available to all.
