  1. Shifts handover

    In shifts calender you have slot called "day notes".
    if we where able to attach a word dokument in this slot, it would make us able to add a word template for Day & night shift handover.

    this would be a great improvemt for the usage on "day notes" & make us able to have shift plans and handovers in one place

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Remove the Ctrl+Shift+C shortcut

    Please, We are an IT team, so Ctrl+Shift+C is used in chrome to inspect an element. I often chat with someone and press this combination when i look on the other window. Is starts calling and I don't really appreciate it because often I have this .... situation.

  8. Block assigning shifts to unavailable employees

    I would think that in most cases, managers would not want to assign a shift to an employee if they are:
    1)unavailable (using Set Availability in mobile app),
    2)approved for time off, or
    3)already assigned a shift at that time.

    Shifts should block managers from assigning anything to employees when they are unavailable for any of the reasons above. If an employee has been assigned a shift in one group, their unavailability should extend to all groups. In fact, don't even show me that employee as an option when I am assigning a shift. Filter the assign-to-employee list to just…

  9. Export/Import

    I see there is an import and export feature, which is nice. The import feature allows you to download a template, but it would be nice to be able to export the schedule already formatted for import to another team. Currently, If I want to move a shift to another team, I would have to export the file, download the template and manually bring all the data over and do the conversion. If I have shifts assigned several weeks in the future this could be very time consuming. Unless I am missing something?

  10. Shifts - assign admin / approver per group

    It would be good to assign admin or approver per schedule group. So the admin or approver can be responsible and receive notification only for their own group. And also the time-off requests from the same group only send to the assigned admin or approver automatically.

  12. "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.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  20. Vacation overview

    We need an area in Shifts where employees can find an overview of their vacation. There should be a way to give each user a different number of vacation days.

    How much vacation is the employee entitled to for the year.
    How much vacation is already planned.
    How much vacation is taken.
    How much vacation is still available.
