  1. Approved holiday requests overwrite existing shift?

    Whenever you approve a holiday or add time off it should replace the existing shift or overwrite that shift as a holiday.

    Currently, it looks as though it just adds another shift aside the original.

  2. Shifts

    Allow for shifts on mobile app to track location of users on the app rather then fixing the location to one place so you could track employees working remotely. Add the ability to punch into a shift on the desktop not just mobile app.

  4. let us choose which view we want to open to in shifts

    It seems that a week ago this started. when I look at shifts in teams, where our management posts our schedules. I used to see all my co-workers schedules. about a week ago it started highlighting just my schedule. I go into view and uncheck myself then check team. I can then see my co-workers schedules. but if i go to chat or check my email. it reverts back to myself. I had our IT department check. They gave me this like since microsoft made the change. I would like the option to be able to have shifts open up…

  5. Shifts Scheduler:

    We are a manufacturing facility so our shift scheduling model is significantly different than the existing shifts model. Namely that our machine operators do not "Bid" for their shifts. They are assigned to a line and shift. Also there are multiple people who would have write access to the schedule. Currently only the Team owner can write to the schedule ( as far as I know ). Need the mechanism to assign Schedule readers and schedule read/ writers. The application is that we are using the Teams shift data via the Graph Beta Api to use as a multi time…

  7. SHIFT SCHEDULER LEAVING RECORDS OF DELETED ITEMS

    Using the Graph API to PowerBi for to use the Shift Schedule for a multi time slicer.

    1) While looking at the data I see there are records for Shift Groups, Shifts, Activites, etc. that were deleted but left in the tables.

    2) Month view Shift editor does not retain the multiple rows when transitioning from one month to the other. Have to go to Day view on the first day of the month to get the second row started

    3) When picking a schedule from a right click the activities of that shift are not copied. Have to copy…

  10. Shifts - Add settings option to auto-share schedule changes with the team

    When a change is made to a schedule it requires sharing it with the team. It would be nice to have an auto-share option to prevent accidentally forgetting to share a schedule change.

  11. Shifts Location Area

    Allow a coordinate range to be used for time clock, instead of fixed point (ie. make a geo-fence area). This would allow teams to sign in from within the borders of a larger site with multiple buildings or work areas.

  12. Add external users shifts eg volunteers who don’t have an organisation 365 account

    The example is to use shifts to rotor staff - so internal staff with 365 accounts AND external staff and volunteers who will not have an organisation 365 account. To send all users whether or not they are internal or external updates on shifts and be able to submit their availability and for the organisation to confirm shifts.

  13. Shifts: interaction with Scheduling Assistant

    It would be great to have the option to see the Teams or Outlook Scheduling Assistant for all members of a group to allow for Shift allocation i.e. to see free time for each member before allocating a Shift.

  15. Decrease minimum time blocks in Shifts to 15 mins

    Our business model currently requires time blocks of 15 mins. Currently, Shifts only allows for a minimum of 30 mins.

  18. Recurring shifts option in Shifts

    Please add recurring functionality to shifts. Our shifts never change from each week in a 4 week rotation. It would be appreciated if we could use the recurring function to have the shift repeat itself instead of making a new schedule every month. Until this happens we will not be able to use this application that has so much good going for it. Until then we will continue to use an outlook calendar that can perform this function. We have the time to make changes to a schedule, not remake the schedule each month.

    Thank you

  19. Time Report via API/Graph

    Really would like to get a final time report via the graph API. This would be so useful from an automation standpoint. Allow me to specify the employee name and the time period and give me total hours regular time and total hours overtime in return.
    This would let me send the data to my Payroll application and/or insert intermediate reports or approvals. If you're not going to do third-party integration yourself, at least let us do it by providing this report programatically.
