  1. Allow users to see number of open slots

    Currently only the owner can see how many slots are available in open shifts, but it would be helpful if users could see the number as well.

  2. Create Flexible Shift

    Have the ability to have a fully flexible shift to show others in the Team when you will work from home, or when you will be working in another time zone. So not the actual shift that is defined but that you as a user can adopt it during the week.

  3. assign shifts in day view

    You should be allowed to assign open shifts to members in day view. Currently it is only possible in week or month view.

  4. Change the hours visible.

    Along the top of Shifts it lists the hours of the day. Our business only works between 7am and 6pm. We don't want to see the hours between 12am-7am and 6pm to 12am. That would also make columns of 7am to 6pm wider and more information in those shifts will be visible.

  5. Option to Display Activity Color Bars in Month View on Shifts

    My team uses shifts as a forward scheduler for onsite and temporary engagements. Typically these last all day so a single entry is fine. However, we also use it to note when a team member has a doctors appointment, and typically block out that time period in the same day. This can get messy when viewing it in the Month view, since it adds an additional row.

    We'd like to input these as Activities within the primary scheduled shift, and then have a color coded tick mark, or box, shown on the monthly view, so that we know to open…

  6. Ability to Swap Activites and Shift, Just Shift, or Activities only.

    You can Swap a shift with a team member, but the ability to Swap Activites and Shift, Just Shift, or Activities only would be nice and for Multiple Days. Also, when requesting Time off, ability to choose what days to apply it to if it spans across a different scheduling week. I.E Time Is 2 weeks Monday-Friday, person work M-F, it would include the weekends not scheduled.

  8. Time-off calendar that shows multiple shifts

    We have multiple shifts in multiple teams I would like to be able to see a Master time-off calendar that tells me who is gone without having to look at all of the separate shifts schedules individually.
    It would also work if time off was able to be posted to say an outlook calendar so I could use that as a master time-off calendar

  9. In Shifts, lock the agents names column on the left

    In Shifts, depending on your resolution, if you are scrolling over to the last day of the week or last days of the month, you can no longer see the column with the agents names. It would be useful if the names could be locked on the left and not scroll over with the schedule.

  10. End Of Shift Report (EOS)

    We need employees to complete a report at the end of their shift, an EOS report. The Manager would create a template with a series of tasks to be checked off by the employee with the ability to add short notes to each category. Ideally, this report would be an app that lives inside Teams. The most important feature would be an option when the EOS report is completed and the employees submit their report, an email would automatically be sent to a distribution list with a copy of the EOS. I would also like a Maintenance area with a…

  11. sort schedules in shifts

    When viewing your schedule with the view set to People, it would be nice if you could sort the schedule in alphabetical order or by start time of the shifts.

  12. Open shift availability on phone apps and shift change history

    Have the ability to add an open shift on phone apps. Shift history would be excellent to see under each individual shift tab as changes are made, rather than email notification.

  13. Managers to be able to see who is Clocked on

    Shifts is great, however there is no way to know who is on a shift or for managers to approve shift/time sheets. Managers also need the ability to end a shift in case someone has forgotten to clock off. I have used other services that are similar and these are key features that the Microsoft shifts is missing

  15. シフトアプリについて

    複数のチームに所属しているが、チーム間でシフトを共有できるようにしてほしい。
    外部に出る業務のとき、別のチームのシフトでは空き時間になっていて困る。チーム間でコピー&ペーストも出来ず1から入力しなければならない。

  16. shifts app to include shift colour and custom label in bulk excel sample data

    Microsoft Teams - Shifts App Hi, Can you please look at including the possibility of including the "shift colour" and the "custom label" when using the bulk excel file to import the shifts. Currently both of these functions can only be used from within the teams app and are not part of the excel (bulk import) sample data. Very time consuming to change all of these. Thanks

  17. Time Clock: Allow Owners to Review and Adjust Submitted Hours Before Exporting

    We'd like to use Shifts for tracking employee hours. However, there are scenarios in which the employee's manager may need to adjust their hours sending them off to the payroll department (If an employee enters hours wrong, or is trying to sneak in extra hours).

    We could try to edit the data in the exported excel sheet. However, however, that is messy and not suer friendly at all. Please allow for the ability to review and adjust hours before exporting.

  19. Have the ability to change the default view in the Shifts tab from just my shifts to the team. I have to change it every time and it's annoy

    Please allow the default view to be changed from just my shifts to the team's shifts permanently without having to change the view each time I go back to the shifts tab. I know my shifts, generally I'm going to this tab to see when the other people in my team are on leave so I can arrange my days as well.
