  1. Shifts: Make color themes editable

    We finally have Shifts but I now cannot change the Theme colour of my time type off. Please make this editable like in StaffHub. So I can give the colour blue not the name blue but anything I would like and is useful for our users.

  3. Vacation Accrual and Tracking

    I would like to be able to use Shifts as a PTO tracking System.

    Each employee should have a PTO and Sick Balance that is tracked in Shifts according to their accrual rates.

    When they request PTO/Sick, shifts should show both the employee and the manager how this request will affect their balance at the time the PTO/Sick is taken so we know if they will be going negative or not.

    Also when the time is approved by the manager their balance should be deducted.

  4. Default view for Shifts

    Currently Shifts defaults to my shifts upon opening, however, my primary task is to look at how the team shifts are scheduled at. I would like to propose an option to have the ability to change the default view to what suits.

  5. Show Shifts from All Teams

    Offer a view in Shifts where managers can see all employees and shifts, not just one team at a time. I have employees on different teams and need to keep track of all of them. Toggling between 6 different teams to do so isn't productive.

  6. Connect Power BI to Shifts Data

    Hi, I would like to connect Power BI to Shifts data in order to be able to make reports from Shifts having real time data available.

  7. Shifts- let the lunch hours be copied with the shift itself

    Right now, you can create a shift and add an un-paid lunch, but that DOES NOT copy to the rest of the week/schedule if you copy/paste that shift. It would be nice to "default" a non-paid lunch on an 8-5 or 9-6 shift.

  8. Shifts Swap portions of your shift.

    Ability to have someone cover your shift entirely or just a portion. Example I need to take off 2 hours early but I only need to offer up those 2 hours to someone else. I will work the rest of the 8 hour shift.

  9. Shift notification update

    When I make a change in Shifts and a notification is sent to the affected Teams members it only indicates that their schedule was changed. My recommendation would be to indicate which shift, or day, was changed. I manage the schedule for 86 security officers and am constantly making changes to their schedules. We provide security at several locations and need to reassign officers to these different locations several times per week. When I make a change in Shifts, it would be extremely helpful to let our officers know what day and shift was changed.

  10. Shifts - Allow multiple shifts per team

    Similar to how a Team can have multiple channels we would like to see multiple Shifts/Schedules in a single team.

  11. Availability in Shifts for Desktop

    You can set daily availability on the mobile app. Can we do the same for the desktop app? It is so useful! The availability markers show up when making shifts.

  14. Remove the Ctrl+Shift+C shortcut

    Please, We are an IT team, so Ctrl+Shift+C is used in chrome to inspect an element. I often chat with someone and press this combination when i look on the other window. Is starts calling and I don't really appreciate it because often I have this .... situation.

  15. Shifts Managers ability to mark a person out when they call in.

    Make a feature that will mark the employee out if they call in sick/out. Thus quickly informing the rest to of the team.

  16. Import Shifts Template Enhancements

    It would be nice if the Import template had ALL options associated with shifts. For example, I name my shifts (i.e. an 8 hour swing shift is an S8), and code them a specific color, but the import feature does not have options for this which means I have to go through manually and change everything after the fact.

  17. Automatically open Shifts to "Today" week.

    I would prefer to have Shifts automatically open the session to the current week, rather than the last viewed week. It can be confusing if I don't realize the dates have changed and that I'm actually viewing the wrong shifts.

  18. Reports for Shifts

    I'm trying real hard to get my managers on board with using the Shifts Calendar. The only reason they are hesitant is the lack of reporting. We need to be able to pull reports from shifts to:
    1. Show the total hours for the specific shift types
    2. Show each person's total.

    The existing export of the weekly calendar is not a very good report.

    Allowing Shifts data to easily be pulled using Power Automate and Power Bi would also be helpful with a couple of tutorials.

  19. Shift change notifications

    We're finding that when shift changes occur, notifications aren't being sent to the members of a schedule on the desktop version of MS Shifts. Much the way conversation notifications from within Teams sends an email, it would be useful if Shifts did the same thing

  20. Remind users to clock in and clock out depending on their shift.

    We use clock in and out times to calculate attendance bonus. But some users forget to clock out overnight, or forget to clock in at the start of their day.

    A notification like "Your shift starts in 5 minutes - Do you want to clock in?" and "Your shift ended 5 minutes ago - Do you want to clock out?" would be so helpful to remind users to do it.
