  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. Customise visible work hours in Shifts day view

    Instead of viewing 24 hours in the day view of a shifts schedule, allow customisation so that you only see the hours that you need to use (e.g. between 0600-1800)

  4. History in shifts, who added, edited, approved and denied shifts

    When multiple users are owner of a shift, we need to see who created a shift, who approved, denied or deleted shifts.

  6. Location

    Currently, for the Time Clock feature, you can only have one location per Team, but it would be nice to have the flexibility of multiple locations.

    We have student workers all on the same team, but in multiple locations around campus, so the only way that GPS time punches will work is to split them up amongst multiple teams, which becomes cumbersome.

  7. Share single group schedule

    I would love the ability to share/copy an individual team's schedule, not the schedules of the entire team. Currently, when I share/copy a schedule, I need to coordinate with my coworker who manages another group within our large team
    so we do not share our calendars multiple times. If there was an option to share and copy for each group, I would have the option to make updates to the schedules I manage without meeting with my coworker before I share them.

  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. Show All Assigned Shifts

    Show Shifts from multiple Teams in the Scheduled Shifts location within the mobile application.

    It does not make it easy if someone is part of multiple Teams to view all of their Shifts.

  10. Import Shift activities

    To be able to break down a shift into different activities at the moment i have to click every single shift an add them manually. I would appreciate to have a import function so that the activities can be planned and typed within excel and then imported. This would improve the use of shifts enormously.

  14. Unable to remove a shift user in a shift schedule

    Unable to remove a shift user in a shift schedule.
    Once a Azure AD user is added to a shift it cannot be removed.
    Removing the user from the Group does not remove it from the shift.

  15. 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.

  17. Hide time off requests

    We would like the option to hide time off requests from the schedule. We will be using time off requests for unavailability for an on call schedule and don't want users to see other's unavailable dates.

  18. The printing of schedules on shifts for "teams" does not work

    The printing of schedules on shifts for "teams" does not work - certainly not like it used to for staffhub. Only a blank page prints. I have tried multiple times. The issue is not from the printer but from Teams.

  20. Allow Geofencing in Shifts

    We're a large university campus and we need to be able to use geofencing for the clocking in and out of Shifts. Setting the address doesn't work for us since we're spread across a large area that Bing doesn't recognize as our address.

    Please allow Shifts to be selected as one of the apps that can be selected when creating an Azure map
