  1. Sorting Options For Owners in Shifts

    Allow us to sort people by currently having a shift assigned and people who don't have shifts assigned be at the bottom of the screen to avoid massive gaps.

  2. Allow Team Owners to edit employee availability in Shifts app.

    I would like to manually approve and then enter my team member's availability myself.

  3. Set the default as no groups filtered rather than them all - prevents CPU spike and slowness.

    By default, all groups are filtered in when opening the app and that causes a massive spike in CPU as its trying to pull in all data. Would it not be better to start with nothing filtered as the user can then select what they want to see without having to wait 2 or 3 minutes for everything to load.

  4. Teams Shifts Connectors: Add schedulingGroup into ListShifts and GetShift

    Please could we have SchedulingGroup included in each shift that is returned using the Logic App Connector - Teams Shifts (List Shifts and Get Shift).
    Shifts are grouped by SchedulingGroup and it would be helpful to be able to identify which shift is within which Scheduling Group.

  5. Use Shifts to assign desks (Desk Sharing / Not to many people at the office during Corona)

    In our office, due to Corona, we are not allowed to use all desk so we can keep our distance.
    We use Shifts to assign desks to people.
    We use Open Shifts and named them with a desk number. People can request an Open Shift Desk.

    It would be nice if it's possible to give an shift (desk in this case) back as Open Shift so someone else can take it.

    Or add location to a shift?

  6. Looking for an ability to enter various rotation/roles for 6 months out for the team

    In my team we have a shift schedule for 6 different roles. We enter the shift data, person and role for up to 6 months out. Today we use shared Outlook calendar and we can import from an Excel sheet and build the schedule very quickly for 6 month out. Would like to have this ability in Teams

  7. Create Shifts Time Clock Dashboard

    I set up a log-in tool in powerapps for our office but would happily switch to shifts as a solution. However, one advantage of the powerapp is that everyone can easily see for what kind of activity (shift/day off etc) and where everyone curently is. If there was a way to have a status dashboard based on the time clock information, that would be great.

  8. Return the Conflict Alert Feature

    Please reinstate the conflict alert feature that was available previously. Maybe as an optional feature if some don't want it. My team found it useful.

  9. Shift pending

    Currently if someone requests time off I can view it in request but I have to either approve or reject it at that moment. If someone requests time off I would like to be able to send a message or add a note letting them know what coverage will be needed and leave the request pending until they find the coverage. Is there a way to add a pending approval option that sends a message or note back to the caregiver for the requests? Right now I can’t add any notes about needed coverage unless I also approve or deny…

  10. Grey shades between co-workers in Shifts to create a better overview

    The overview of the schedule in shifts would be better readable if every other co-worker would have shade of gray in their line.

  11. Make it unable to assign open shifts to a person which has a day off

    When I would like to assign an open shift to a person, I get a long list with all my co-workers, including the ones that have a day of. It would be nice if I can see already from here which co-workers are still available and which are not. For example: make the ones which are absent with a gray color or something like that.

  12. Exclude open Shifts when you share a schedule with the team

    When I like to share a schedule with my team, I cannot exclude the open shifts. Once I've shared these open Shifts and I would later like to assign these open Shifts to a person, the open Shift will only disappear from the open Shift once I share the schedule with my team. This make the overview very confusing.

  13. Connect a task/shift/activity to multiple persons

    Sometimes, there are more than one person that will work on the same taks/shift/activity. It would be nice to connect this to multiple persons.

    For example: when you click on a Shift to edit a ****, you cannot add an extra person.

  14. Tasks within Shifts

    I use shifts to plan regular tasks for my co-workers. We have tasks that occur every month, week or day. Some tasks only take up to 1 hour (for example, cleaning a desk) and some tasks take up an entire day (for example, answer the door when the doorbell rings).
    It would be nice to plan within a shift a tasks/activity and assign a time to it. I know it's already possible to add shift activities, but these cannot overlap each other. Next to that, It would be great to have an overview of tasks (which need to be done,…

  15. Integrate Planner and Agenda to Shifts

    It would be great to integrate planner and the Outlook Agenda to Shifts. Now I have to go back and forth from the Agenda and Planner, to see whether someone has a meeting of task to do, when I try to make the schedule for my team in Shifts.

  17. Shifts - Activities - Do not update activity start and end times based on new shift time

    When a shift start or end time is changed, Shifts automatically changes the activity times within the shift. This is an issue when you have multiple activities set up that you don't want to change. For example, a team member is scheduled to work 8-4 with an activities from 11-12, 12-2 & 3-4. If I roster them from 10-6 instead, I want to keep their activities as scheduled but Shifts automatically changes the activity times based on the new shift hours.

    To fix this I have to save the new shift times, then go back and change all the activity…

  18. Allow owners to request open shifts

    At the moment owners are not able to request open shifts for themselves. Our organization unit's Teams has multiple owners and some owners also do shifts. It'd be preferrable, if they could also request open shifts just like members do.

    This is currently possible in the mobile app, but it'd be good to have this one Teams Desktop version as well!

  19. Time count, holiday count in shifts

    Can you add an overview per Team member with regular working hours per week, overtime account and holidays account? Approved holidays should update account automatically, time stamp clock should update time account

  20. Deselect all option when filtering team members in shifts

    You can select several members of a team to show just their shifts. It would be good to have a select all option on the menu to clear your selection out and be able to view whole team again
