  1. shifts non licensed user

    Allow non licensed users to be added to Shifts. We would like to use the scheduling feature, but do not need Office365 licenses for these people because they do not need email.

  2. shifts adding unscheduled dates

    When updating the 'shifts' facility within teams, I noticed a number of shifts had been added which I did not add. This is a worrying error with shifts and needs fixing urgently...

  3. Shifts - Add settings option to auto-share schedule changes with the team

    When a change is made to a schedule it requires sharing it with the team. It would be nice to have an auto-share option to prevent accidentally forgetting to share a schedule change.

  7. Shifts Location Area

    Allow a coordinate range to be used for time clock, instead of fixed point (ie. make a geo-fence area). This would allow teams to sign in from within the borders of a larger site with multiple buildings or work areas.

  8. Custom time period overview

    The ability to view a certain amount of days or weeks starting from any given date would a great addition to Shift.

    We have a repeating shift pattern which doesn't line up with months, so for us a 4 week overview would be great. I can imagine all the different kinds of shift patterns other users have, so i believe adding this option would benefit many users

  9. Preferred breaks

    It would be nice to be able to input your preferred breaks into shifts. For example, I start at 6am. My preferred break would be 10/10.30. Rather than the system giving me a 9am break. I really struggle after my break I prefer the shorter time after my break.

    Being able to see your break on shifts too would be a help. You could plan things on your break in advance, such as scheduling a phone call on your break or meeting someone on your break.

  10. Add external users shifts eg volunteers who don’t have an organisation 365 account

    The example is to use shifts to rotor staff - so internal staff with 365 accounts AND external staff and volunteers who will not have an organisation 365 account. To send all users whether or not they are internal or external updates on shifts and be able to submit their availability and for the organisation to confirm shifts.

  11. Shifts: interaction with Scheduling Assistant

    It would be great to have the option to see the Teams or Outlook Scheduling Assistant for all members of a group to allow for Shift allocation i.e. to see free time for each member before allocating a Shift.

  12. Multi-week View in Shifts

    We need the ability to see the shift calendar in 6 week blocks, instead of only day, week, and month. We run a six week rotation and it makes more sense to view it in term of weekly rotations, the month view cuts too many shifts of in the middle. Thanks.

  14. Decrease minimum time blocks in Shifts to 15 mins

    Our business model currently requires time blocks of 15 mins. Currently, Shifts only allows for a minimum of 30 mins.

  16. Ability to move person from one Group to Another

    As there might be people who move from one group to another in the same Team. We should have ability to move them from one to another as currently it doesn't allow it.

  20. 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…
