  2. 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

  4. 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.

  5. "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.

  10. Validate Copying Shifts from One Week to Another

    When copying a Shifts schedule from one week to the next, have a verification check that lets the user know if there is already a schedule published or in draft mode for the week being copied TO, that allows a user to either cancel or select a different week to avoid duplicate shifts being created for the same days/employees.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! This is Amir from the Shifts product team. We added your feedback to our backlog as feature to manage conflicts when copy-pasting shifts (especially if they are recurring over a longer period of time).

  11. Shifts - allow time-off requestor to choose the manager for approval and filter by approver

    For example, We have a Shifts schedule with 200 employees, and there are only 5 managers that have the access to approve different time-off Requests.

    Now the 5 manager receive all the request from employees and they need to go through these requests one by one to find their own employees' request and approve it. It is very inconvenient for the 5 managers to deal with the large amount of time-off requests.

    Would be cool to allow employee to choose which manager the time-off request needs be sent to. And the manager can also filter out requests that assigned to…

  12. 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 :-(

  13. Intergrate Shifts with Payroll systems and Dynamics 365

    Would be logical to compliment Shift as scheduling software/app integrated with Dynamics 365 and payroll systems. So Shift should able generate time sheets approved by managers for payroll data, and have common employee database with Talent/Dynamics 365. Adding AI to generate suggested schedules based on sales result, foot traffic, inventory receiving, etc. would be big bonus too. Adding Time Leave requests would be nice too, to complete front line staff management from single point.

  14. Display only working hours

    The 24h range of shifts ist too much for us. It would be cool to specify the working hours in teams. Us for example, we need to display a range from 7am to 5pm. Would be great to customize that in the settings.

  15. 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.

  16. Filter shifts by members

    Should be able to filter shifts by member. We could have an option to filter by one or more members, so shifts rows would be displayed only for that members filtered. That would be faster to manage more than one team members at the same time, not looking for one by one member as it is today.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! This is a great suggestion especially for larger teams. How big is your team? We will add this suggestion to our backlog. We plan to improve in the future our filtering capabilities and your suggestion makes a lot of sense.

  17. Want to set alarm at the shift start time with Shifts

    It would be great if we could set alarm with Shifts. If Shifts might have the alarm feature like Outlook calendar, that would be great.

  18. Shifts - Export Options

    We need in HR the option to export the timetables of one and/or multiple specific employees.

    E.g. let us select in checkboxes which people's timetables we want to export
    - and/or -
    Give us an export option in the context-menu of an employee, where just his/her shifts will be exported for a defined period.

  20. Refuse shifts

    Allow staff to refuse/reject shifts without having to offer or swap. Still need Manager approval to move shift to open and require a reason from staff.
