  1. Shifts - Custom request reason

    Shifts - Custom request reason. These seem to be limited in the Shifts application to unpaid, vacation, off, sick day and parental leave.

  2. Shifts schedule rename

    It would be great if it´s possible to change the Shifts schedule name or if the name is adopted by the corresponding team.

    At the moment we have amix-up through the Staffhub migration and when a team is renamed

  5. 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…

  6. Staff per 30 minutes shouldn't include lunch and breaks

    If I have a team with my customer support phone staff, I want to see the number of agents I have online during a shift. Right now, when viewing "staff per 30 minutes", I see a total of all staff, regardless of whether or not they are on lunch or in another activity. Lunch and other activities should not count toward the total staff available in that view.

  7. Allow sorting in Shifts

    When viewing by Shift, add a feature that allows you to sort the order of the Shifts. We custom name our shifts and need to be able to easily find the shift we are looking for. Currently the shifts do not appear in any discernible order. Thank you.

  9. Acknowledge shifts

    There needs to be some sort of confirmation that someone has received a shift and is accepting the shift that has been assigned to them. This would be great as an option, not as a mandatory thing for every shift but if we could flag certain shifts that need to be acknowledged. Currently, we will assign a shift, but still have to have an extra step of communication to confirm that the employee received the information and is actually going to be at their assigned job.

  11. Shifts: Allow entries over several days

    We use shifts for Service assignments which often take several days incl.travel. It would be great to make one entry taking several days i/o copy and pasting every single day, in total it gives a better overview and saves time. Entries over several days a currently only availble for holidays.

  12. Share a shift to a group

    It’s possible to share a schedule
    to the user assigned to it and to the entire team! It would be useful to share the schedule to a group in shifts also

  13. 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.
    We are having a problem removing a member that is no longer employed. Please Help

  14. Teams Shifts - Option to allow Manager of schedule to turn off swap

    The option under settings to allow the manager who sets up the schedule to turn off "swap" and "offer" of shifts. Not all industries who will be using Shifts wish to allow this to happen.

  15. Shifts (StaffHub) - Email all staff scheduled to work on the current day

    Please add the ability to email all staff currently scheduled in Shifts (StaffHub) for the current day. This is important for managers to communicate with all current day scheduled staff in one easy step. This could be a Flow, but current Flow templates don't support this.

  16. Offer Recurring Shift Capability

    Our staff is scheduled for the same shifts each week for the academic semester. We have a staff of over 50 with multiple shifts and locations. It isn't feasible to use Shifts in its current configuration for our scheduling purposes if we cannot easily add recurring weekly shifts.

  18. "View only" shareable link for shifts

    There should be a way to share a link of shifts to a third party without a Teams account, so the schedule can be viewed, but not edited.

    My organization has a few sites that were running google sheets live on a computer in their staff room to show the most updated schedule without staff always pulling out their phones, and without needing staff to individually log in.

    I would like them to keep this ability.

  19. Availability in Shifts for Desktop

    You can set daily availability on the mobile app. Can we do the same for the desktop app? It is so useful! The availability markers show up when making shifts.
