  4. 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.

  5. 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...

  7. 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.

  8. anrufschleifen und schichten verbinden

    Wir nutzen Schichten um festzulegen, wann wer ans telefon geht...

    hilfreich wäre es also wenn wir schichten und Anrufschleife verbinden können...

    Klingle bei dem der schicht hat, ggf. bei stellvertreter....

    Am besten mitsamt funktion geschäftszeiten zu belegen

    english:
    We use shifts to control who answers the phone...

    so it would help if we could take shifts and loop the phones...

    ring the bell where he's on shift, maybe a deputy...

    It is best if you have business hours together with the function

  9. Add a task overview to a Shift

    Dear sir/madam,

    I started using Shift to schedule my teammembers Shifts. The most important things about me scheduling my teammembers is that I have to assign them daily tasks. Some tasks continue all day (for example unpacking a dishwasher and turn it back on) and some tasks take up a few hours (for example clean the kitchen). It is however not possible to add this to one shift and it is also not possible to organize this in a clear way. Therefore my schedule now looks like the attached image.

    To assign multiple tasks to 1 person, I have to…

  10. 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.

  11. Choose Fields for TimeClock Export

    The Report Produced from the TimeClock Export Function has A LOT of fields that many things don't need.
    It would be nice if the Export feature included a field select similar to exporting a calendar in outlook.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Option to share Shift to only nominated people

    When I have completed a Weeks Shift pattern I want to send it to maybe one or two other individuals who may be in the team, but not on the Shifts for comments. Options only allow sharing to All Team members or members included in the shift.

  15. Break schedules in Shifts schedule

    when using the shifts scheduled and you add in the break schedules. When you export the shift to excel it only gives you the shift time not the Role the person is in or the break schedules.

    it woud be very handy to add the breaks into the excel sheet

  16. Increase the break length in Shift

    Increase the max limit of break length in the Shifts app. Preferably beyond 500 minutes.

  17. 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.

  18. Add New Request Type (Not Request Reason) "Overtime"

    As you are aware Time off, Swap, Offer are the only available request types.
    Provide Request type called "Overtime".
    With that request type, many hours and trees (printing paper) will be saved.

  20. Show e-mail address in time reporting shifts

    It's nice if Teams can add e-mail address for each person in time reporting. It's very usefull when there are many people with same names in one organization.
