  1. 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.

  2. allow people to request Open shifts on the desktop version

    currently the app is the only way for employees to request an open shift. Would like the feature to be available on the desktop for those who don't want to use the app

  4. Shifts - Let me see the entire team's schedule and not just mine on the App!

    If I am part of a customer service team, but am in a separate "group", I cannot view/manage other's schedules from the app because I can only see my shifts. This is a problem for managers trying to edit the schedule and check availability across multiple groups!

  5. Shifts - Date localisation

    Ability to localise dates - In at least AU and UK we use DD/MM - its becomes confusing quickly when half the dates are in local and the other half are in US format

  7. Choose the break down of visible times by hour, 30 mins, 15 mins, etc.

    The directors in my organization schedule activities for staff at 15 minute increments, or tasks start at 15 or 45 of the hour. It would be nice to choose the breakdown of the visible time, as the gray vertical bar that moves with the mouse can be harder to pinpoint the time without opening up individual staff shifts.

    They need to be able to compare staff schedules in this way to make sure everything is covered.

  8. Filtering Shifts

    Should be able to search and filter shifts across individuals based on time or a particular content of the shift i.e. to see who is assigned to a particular duty for the month.

  9. Create a custom list of "Activities"

    Create a drop-down of "Activities" on the Shifts App in Teams so that we can track more activities than simply "lunch" or "break".

  10. Person listed in multiple groups

    When a person is listed in multiple groups, their shift should auto-populate on the subsequent group. An example of this is when the Manager is listed on all of their groups shifts, their shift (i.e.schedule, vacation, holiday, etc.) should follow so you don't have to enter it multiple times.

  11. Shift - Manage real working time and display real planning

    When people ask for a day off (or couple of hours off) it's displayed on another line- many lines if you have more than 2 events on a day.... - and the planning begin to be hard to read -
    Beside that, the counts of people by day (or hour) is false as the shift do not disappear from the planning - the calculation of working hours / days off are not done

  12. allow employees to decline Open shifts so theyremove from their list of open shifts

    currently open shifts list all open shifts you requested or didn't request.
    if there could be a step to decline a open shift, this will then move from their current list
    from In Progress to Done
    This way employees know which shifts they said they are available to and are waiting for approval without needing to open each entry

  13. Cannot offer shifts to members of different shifts group

    In shifts you can separate members into multiple groups. I have mine separated into regular workers and managers. Managers have a different schedule than regular workers. I do not want regular workers to be able to offer or swap hours with a manager and vice versa.

  16. more options on how to view shifts

    provide more flexibility when viewing shifts. such as displaying shift details without clicking on a shift. also choosing how many days to view at a time/ an option to "zoom" to view more employees at a time

  17. 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.

  18. Shifts as a Volunteer Scheduler

    If there were a way to utilize Shifts to schedule volunteers for events by setting up time slots that would allow for up to X people to sign up for the slot but potentially allow people to swap with the shift's manager's approval. Reminders and mobile support would be great to have with it too, but the basic functions of the scheduling would be awesome.

  19. Shifts export : There is no column dedicated to shifts name

    When exporting Shifts from Teams...the Excel created in the process doesn't keep the information about the job that was undertaken. Only the cumulative worked and paused hours, by employee.

    I need to know what he has done, not only his hours.

  20. Enable a search function that allows searching through Shifts

    When I search for a shift that is posted somewhere in Shifts, I receive zero results. As it is right now, I must manually review each week to find what I'm looking for.

    For example, if I have a shift that is called "Shift 3" or "Visit 4", I want to be able to enter those into the search field an population all those shifts.
