  1. Multiple time zones

    We have a global customer care team in multiple time zones, but currently it appears you can only build a schedule for a single time zone. We would have to use multiple schedules for the multiple time zones, which would make it a challenge for people to easily glance and view them all at once. Is this a feature that could be considered? Right now, it is more advantageous to continue to use a single Excel spreadsheet as we can view everyone's schedule at a glance that way.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Double booking.Staff can pick Shifts from multiple schedules. ie 2 AM shifts on same day!

    Our business has multiple services and offers the shifts to all the different teams however there is nothing in Shifts thats says "Sorry you all ready have a shift at ..... " so staff can double book and not realise.

  8. "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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. Your status in "shifts" should be reflected in your main status

    If you are off-shift or on vacation in shifts, this should be reflected in your main status. I have just messaged my manager who showed as available(green) in status but was on vacation. I got told off :-(

  17. custom fields for each shift

    We should be able to define custom fields, and they should display in addition to the "Notes" field.

    We would like to be able to define a small number of custom fields that can be used for each shift.

    Examples:
    For staff that travel, fields could be used for "client name" to visit, Location (URL) or address, etc.

  19. 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.
