  3. 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.

  4. Shifts - Collapsing groups by default option (not always)

    Shifts has the capability to collapse groups you don't want to see all the time for your schedules, but it would be nice to be albe to collapse them by defualt (optional check box) or something so we don't have to go collapsing groups every time we open the scheduler.

  7. Reminders for breaks

    As a call centre consultant my breaks set can vary each day. To allow for automated reminders I schedule these into outlook.

    It would be good if some integration between teams and outlook could be investigated. Or setting up shift reminders for breaks in teams, instead of just shift reminders on the start times

  10. Ability to move member into different group in Shifts

    I have multiple groups setup in Shifts and it would be nice if I had the ability to easily move a member to another group. It appears you can only move members within the same group.

  11. Native Kronos integration

    It would be awesome to have a native integration between Shifts and Kronos. The nature of our business requires us to perform clock-in/clock-out using bio-metrics so as an organization we will eventually move to Kronos for timekeeping. There's value in Teams with Shifts on the side of Communications and Collaboration which isn't Kronos' strongest offering. We would love to see the schedules we create in Teams show in Kronos or schedules created in Kronos show up in Teams. Our users maintain a single place for their schedule data (Teams) and we can meet or org's compliance (bio-metric clock-in)

  12. Shifts Planned Vacation

    Allow team owners to enable team members to put in vacation without approval requests.

    Currently to get this done you would have to make all members owners.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Shifts - "Copy Schedule" function applied only to for selected team members

    It would be great if it would be possible to select particular team members for the "Copy schedule" functionality in the Desktop version of the Shifts application. In current version, the schedule is copied for all team members. If the schedule changes for a particular group of members, it is not possible copy only their part of new schedule.

  18. Microsoft Teams - Shifts - Overlapping activities

    Per https://support.office.com/en-us/article/schedule-daily-activities-on-microsoft-staffhub-0ddad02f-c6cf-42af-9a87-52ea4ff935ce, "A single shift cannot contain multiple overlapping activities."

    I schedule overlapping activities for all of my employees everyday because they are required to multitask. I'd like to request the ability for activities to overlap, or at least a per-team setting to control this behavior.

  19. Option to notify approvers when requests are sent in the Teams Shifts app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のシフト アプリにて、リクエストが送信された際に承認者へ通知する機能の実装希望
    Option to notify approvers when requests are sent in the Teams Shifts app


    ■Description(内容):
    シフト アプリにて、ユーザーから送信されたリクエストは、二次承認として承認者による "マネージャーの承認" が必要になります。
    また、リクエストを承認する際には承認者がリクエスト タブを能動的に見に行く必要があるため、リクエストの送信から承認までタイムラグが発生します。
    このため、リクエストが送信された際に承認者へ通知される機能の実装を希望します。

    In the Shifts app, “Manager approval” means that user requests need to be approved by an approver as a form of secondary authentication.
    However, since approvers need to open up the request tab in order to issue approval for requests, there is a time lag between requests being sent and them being approved.
    Please add a function to notify approvers when a request has been sent.
