  1. Shifts Requests should trigger a notification. Also the date format is US and I can't seem to change it to Australian date format.

    Shifts Requests should trigger a notification. Also the date format is impossible to change as it is it's currently US date format. Is there a way to change it to Australian date format?

  5. Stop users from clicking in early.

    It would be great to have a setting to stop employees from clocking in early for their shift and from thier lunch break. For flexibility i would keep them as two separate toggles.

    it would also be nice to see the ability to set the number of minutes, for example stop someone from clocking in ore than 5 minuts early.

  6. Shifts/Teams iCAL URL

    Allow iCAL URLs to be published for Shifts calendar views.

    This means mobile phones can subscribe to the iCAL and view 'who is on shift this evening' simply by opening their calendar app on their phone.

  7. Show Timeclock Data on Shifts Calendar

    When an employee is using the TimeClock, the Shifts calendar has no representation of their time. It would be amazing if People using the TimeClock showed on the shifts Calendar.

  8. Allow weekly shifts (or with start and end date)

    It would be nice to assign weekly shifts to members.
    This would be an advantage to plan our on-call duties.

  9. Show Clock/Break Status for TimeClock Users

    Show in Shifts a TimeClock Users Status:
    - On Shift (aka currently tracking house or clocked in)
    - On Break (currently tracking break time)

    Then Place the finalized shift in the Shift Calendar when they punch out.

    Right now the time only appears once the person punches out.
    And there is no indication of who is currently clocked in or who is on break.

    Time Clock Status, TimeClock, Punch, Tracking, Employee Status

  10. Improved schedule export function in Shifts app.

    Add the possibility to export and import the schedules when using custom labels for the different shifts. Perhaps by using one excel sheet as a custom label shifts database.

  11. view multiple team schedules simultaneously in Shifts

    For schedulers who schedule multiple teams, the ability to have more than one schedule open at a time. Allowing the schedules to be viewed side by side. And for faster navigation for scheduling in the moment. For example, you are working in the schedule for Team A, and get a call to make a change in Team B... much easier to have them both displayed across multiple monitors than have to toggle between the teams in the app.

  12. Shifts - Export Schedule Table in Editable Excel Format

    for so long, we have been using ABC Roster for creating shift schedules.
    would be great if Shifts is able to Export the Schedule Table in an Editable MS Excel Format (currently only able to print that table in PDF format from shifts), allowing for us to add on other information as and when required.
    export function in Shifts now, only exports the report, but we require a modifiable schedule table to submit on-site(s)

    just not enough customization capabilities in Shifts

  14. Collapsed Row View in Month View

    We schedule daily engagements in shifts and primarily view everything in the "Month" view. We also add in other daily tasks, such as doctors appointments and would like to see that reflected in the same row instead of as a new "Shift" on a separate row.

    We'd like to see a "Collapsed Row" view where both "shifts" (the normal shift and the doctors appointment "Shift") are displayed in a single row.

  15. Expanded Color Options

    Shifts has been a life saver during the COVID-19 pandemic. We've been using it to schedule our team and have been color coding the schedule by clients and/or engagement type. We'd love to see an expanded color palette added so we can further customize the schedule.

  16. Shifts - easy view on available / time off members

    in our organisation we use shifts as a holidaycard. To organize our departments well, we should be able to see how many members have a day off and how many members (numbers) have already been assigned to a shift. This to prevent to allow too many people to have a day off.

  18. Automatic export

    I need to export the shift data for a specific time period, routinely ever month or on demand. If I could enter the URL and specify the dates I want to export would solve my problem. Also be nice to specify the file name so I could process it directly.

  19. Shifts - Sub Categories

    For our company, we have our on-call shifts consisting of 3 people each on a weekly basis. It would be nice to be able to set up as a "Night Service" shift calendar, and have the three sub categories underneath.

    Putting everyone in one calendar tends to look a bit overwhelming and cluttered, and creating three separate calendars trying to look between them to see who is on-call is a bit cumbersome.
