  4. 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.

  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.

  7. Shifts Hourly view to my Hours of Operation

    When in Shifts viewing the hourly view have ability to set the time range.
    Instead of showing 12am to 12pm allow me to customize it to that only my hours of operation are showing 7am to 10pm etc.
    Also allow for marking specific days as closed.

  9. Integrate outlook calendar/Teams meeting with Shifts

    A integration between outlook calendar/ Teams meeting with Shifts could allow us to track a person's schedule. This way we can effectively provide right amount of coverage at our service desk.

  11. Shifts - Publicly Viewable Schedule

    Shifts would be a nice platform for maintaining and publicizing our on-call schedules if there were some way to allow view access to the schedule.

  12. Shifts

    We want to use Shifts to align our absences in the teams. It should be possible to enter time-offs just once in one team for a team member and these time-offs are directly transferred/visible in the other teams in which this person is a member. Changes should also be done only once and be visible to all teams.

  13. Allow multiple existing shifts on the same member

    Make it possible to add multiple existing shifts on the same member. The only possible way seems to be on Day view or creating a new shift (not use the exisiting shift).

    2. Create the posiblility for an employee to see all her/his shifts, even if she/he is a member of more than one team.

  16. 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.

  17. Add Reporting to Shifts, add time off caps.

    It would be a must for our business to have reporting on the total number of time off days for each time (Vacation, Sick, ect.) be reported in Shifts.

    We would also benefit from being able to set caps per user on how much of each Time Off type they can request.

  20. Ability to Clock in/out using the web version in addition to the mobile app

    having the time clock option is great!... if everyone on your team has a smart device and is willing to use it to clock in. It would be very beneficial to have the ability as an employee to clock in for my shift on the computer when I login vs. having to use a mobile device.
