  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  12. Send a mail to team members when the shift is published, amended, swap request, offer and off.

    Currently the option to notify the team members when shift schedule is published is not working. Also, during the swap/offer/off request mail has not been sent.
    During, swap/off/offer requests mail should be sent to concerned person copying the team owner and their managers. Once the request is approved, mail should be sent to entire team about the change because many people work in the same shifts and others might have planned something with the person who is requesting for swap/off/offer, noticing before might help to plan their work properly. Hence, whenever there is a change in schedule, entire team should…

  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

  17. See who's on shift in the mobile app (Like StaffHub does)

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

  18. More PowerShell Commands for Shifts

    Provide more PowerShell commands in the Teams PowerShell Module for managing shifts with different teams.
    I.e. add/remove shift schedules, updating shifts, import/export etc.

  19. Yearly holiday/vacation planner

    Many companies require before each year end that team members allocate their requests for holiday periods along the next year, following limits on number of days and number of persons able to take the same days within the same period. A must have feature, even if it takes a couple of years to bring it to life.

  20. Blocking Shifts - Off time

    If an employee is scheduled to be off, or on vacation, teams should not allow me to assign a shift, or maybe a popup can appear saying so-and-so is on Holiday, do you wish to assign the Shift ... anyway?
