  2. Real Time Shift Dashboard

    To help manage team availability, it will be great if we can see who is on break in real time.

  3. please allow the option of time-off requests to be posted in multiple department schedules

    When user A is a member of two departments, Team 1 and Team 2, and he sends a time off request in the schedule of Team 1, after the manager approves the time off request, only members in Team 1 can see this approved time off request, but Team 2 needs to see it as well.

    Could there be an option to post a time-off request to multiple department schedules (Team 1 AND Team 2) and choose the which ones?

  4. Ability for the admin to restrict "sharing" settings for shifts.

    We have 10 different people who simultaneously make changes to our full shift schedule. It would be helpful to have a setting that would share ONLY the changes that one individual made, rather than all un-shared changes. It would also be helpful for the admin to be able to restrict the ability for anyone to "share with entire team." My managers regularly share the schedule to the entire team on accident instead of only to "affect members" which always leads to firstline workers texting/calling and asking "it says you changed my schedule but I don't see anything." Being able to…

  5. Remove the character limit on labels for shifts

    As there isn't a currently capability to display shifts in the local timezones of the users/members of the groups, we are trying to work around this by identifying the region and shift times through a label, but it has a character limitation that is making it difficult to work well for the team.

  7. Requests

    Can we have the person's name show up on the shift they are requesting on the main site without clicking on the request? The app shows without clicking on the shift requested. I attached 2 pictures to show an example.

  9. Enlarging the button for time off requests in shifts

    The button for requesting time off in shifts is quite small. Enlarging it to make it more prominent would help ensure that time off is tracked accurately.

  10. Can we develop shifts that can be repeated

    We build our schedule every 6 weeks, all staff are on track ( 3 12 hour shifts per week). The shifts are the same each week. Example
    Week 1 m,w,f Week 2 s, th,f
    if we can have a DRAFT schedule to populate the tracks we can then post them once populated. Copying the current schedule does not work due to swaps, added shifts etc.

  11. My shifts are disappearing

    My shifts are disappearing periodically off of my screen for one day on desktop but can be viewed on phone app? For example, Saturday night shift one day is present and one day is gone.

  13. Drop down option for channels in Shifts

    When creating a shift for a team member have a drop down option to select a channel to.
    We create teams as our clients and channels as the projects assoicated with the client, we use shifts as our field techs schedule, we then assign the project to our field techs. Right now we type the project name in the custom label field and any imperative information in the notes

  14. Custom view in Shifts per team per user

    We have over 30 users accessing shifts on the same team. It would be great to be able to save a custom view for each user. Currently, everyone has the same view for the shifts. Each time someone moves a rota up or down the list, this changes for everyone.

  15. Default expand only certain shifts

    We have 18 shifts under 1 team. Shifts via the desktop app seems very clunky having to load all groups and rotas while I scroll down. It would be great to be able set a default set of rota's to expand and the rest to collapse or to mark certain Rota's as favourites, therefore those favourites appear at the top of the list.

  17. Get all the features of Staffhub

    Staffhub users. We had to replace the tool with Shift. However, many Staffhub features are no longer found in Shift. Example (notification of changes in notifications, icon on schedule during holidays, ...) is it possible to retrieve what was in Staffhub. It is not a matter of fair evolution not to lose what was working.

  18. Make the content in shifts searchable.

    It would be helpful if the content in shifts was searchable. We are using shifts to schedule all of our construction manpower and to distribute the job information to the men in the field. When they receive a shift, it contains job numbers, addresses, phone numbers, names, all kinds of information that is unique to that day. Sometimes you want to know "when did I send someone to Job X?" and if you could simply type "Job X" into the search and have it come up that would be super helpful. Or sometimes we name the shift something but would…

  20. Week view, days don't stay lined up with dates above

    You scroll right/left to see all the days when the window is not wide-screen. Days don't stay lined up with dates above. Causes scheduling errors.
