  1. Shifts Time Off let employees request a change or deletion

    Ability to have an employee change/delete and resubmit time off.
    Example employee have been approved for 1 hour off but instead needs to move the appointment to another day or add additional time. Also need an employee cancel button on the time off.

  2. Allow Shifts to be accessed in browser

    Allow user to view just shifts in browser without having to load the Teams app, or go via Teams in the browser.

    With Shifts in Teams, there is some disconnect with what is available in StaffHub (understandable, but makes things tricky).

    A schedule created in StaffHub can't be viewed in Teams.
    A schedule created in Teams can't be viewed in StaffHub.

    StaffHub is currently a little more user friendly for large scale rota planning. It's quite buggy in Teams when dealing with a large number of people.

    Being able to edit a Teams-based schedule in a browser - just like…

  3. shifts activities

    Shifts - Ability to Add Types of Activities and Customize the Break Time.

    Is there a way to customize the length of breaks. Currently it is showing as "Any". Also are we able to add other activity tasks?

  4. 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

  5. Shifts: option for a two week schedule view

    Shifts: schedule view: current options are for one week or one month. Would like to be able to view 2 weeks at a time, which is a pay period at our company. This would be useful to be able to view on one screen if part time employees are schedule their required hours for the pay period.

  6. Add Shifts to GCC

    Deploy Shifts (Microsoft Teams for Firstline Workers) to GCC clients. It's been available to non-GCC for a little bit of time, but some smaller GCC clients may find it helpful.

  7. Enable Shifts for Government cloud users - GCC

    Please enable SHIFTS for government cloud users - GCC. I work at a government agency. We use Office 365, just starting to experiment with Teams. We have GCC license. We have shift workers - in fact 3 shifts each day 24 x 7. Shifts will be an extremely useful tool for us to schedule our workers. Currently we use a spreadsheet.

  8. 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.

    I would like to see who's on shift in the mobile app. Staffhub shows this but the Teams app does not.

  12. 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.

  13. Add alias user without email in shifts

    I know that the guest user ideas is in planned status.
    (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36605296-guest-user-in-shifts)

    Besides guest user, I think having alias user(no email, just give a alias name to his/her e.g. Volunteer A/ Temp A...etc) in the shifts could be useful in some scenarios. Those people might be in recruiting, might be from other parties which we would not directly contact with. I don't need them interacting in the shifts planning but I need to include them in the shifts for the time/headcount planning

  14. Shifts - superior approving your requests

    Let superior approve your requests for Holiday etc.
    Now person who created shift plan is the one who is approving all request.
    If company has "Manager" atribute synced from AD to AAD then your superior should be notified about your requests.

  15. Time Clock Station

    Will there be a way to set up a Time Clock Station on a Tablet or Desktop so team members do not have clock-in with their mobile phones?

    Not everyone has a mobile phone, unfortunately.

  18. Show shifts that are overtime, involve one or more premium pays or are extra shifts

    Add an attribute to a shift to indicate that particular shift is an overtime shift, involves one or more premium pay types (bonus shifts) or is an additional shift (worked in addition to a typical schedule). Incidentally, a single shift could be all three.

  19. Delete a member that is no longer employed

    Allow owners to delete a member without having to remove each scheduled day. Or allow owners to replace an existing team member with a new team member taking over their schedule.

  20. Team Owners can't export time clock data from Shifts

    This is more of a bug than a "feature" request.

    If you have created a schedule for a team, then you can export time clock data. However, if you are a team owner other than the person who initially created the schedule, the export function doesn't work. Nothing happens. I have verified this across a number of tenants, and also have just independently had Microsoft Technical Support reproduce the issue on their end independently. Given that MS has no formal mechanism for reporting bugs, it was suggested that I post this issue here, on the Uservoice.

    The bug is easy…
