  1. Time Out Allowances

    In order to move over to Microsoft Teams Shifts we urgently need the ability to assign an allowance for each of the time off categories.

    This is to ensure the manager and the employee understand how much time off balance they have. This is something which we asked for in Staffhub which went nowhere due to the app being discontinued.

    We need to be able to set the allowances in days and hours to suit each team.

    • Allow Shifts to be accessed in browser

      Allow user to view just shifts in browser without having to load the Teams app, or go via Teams in the browser.

      With Shifts in Teams, there is some disconnect with what is available in StaffHub (understandable, but makes things tricky).

      A schedule created in StaffHub can't be viewed in Teams.
      A schedule created in Teams can't be viewed in StaffHub.

      StaffHub is currently a little more user friendly for large scale rota planning. It's quite buggy in Teams when dealing with a large number of people.

      Being able to edit a Teams-based schedule in a browser - just like…

      • Shifts - Publicly Viewable Schedule

        Shifts would be a nice platform for maintaining and publicizing our on-call schedules if there were some way to allow view access to the schedule.

        • Shifts: Don't display reason for absence

          Desired Outcome:

          When employees request time off, give Managers the option to not display the reason given to the rest of the team. I.e. Make the reason (= color and icon) for the absence visible to Managers only.

          Reason:

          Right now even personal reasons such as sickness are publicly accessible to anyone. E.g. another employee could therefore track why a colleague is not in the office that day and draw conclusions about personal matters such as their Health from it. This would require consent from every employee; this consent is freely withdrawable under GDPR. One employee alone could therefore block…

          • Shifts - Allow multiple shifts per team

            Similar to how a Team can have multiple channels we would like to see multiple Shifts/Schedules in a single team.

                • Add Reporting to Shifts, add time off caps.

                  It would be a must for our business to have reporting on the total number of time off days for each time (Vacation, Sick, ect.) be reported in Shifts.

                  We would also benefit from being able to set caps per user on how much of each Time Off type they can request.

                  • Activity Logger

                    It would be great if there was an app you can add to Teams to track your activity. for example that I spend 10 minutes on document A and 30 on document B. This would make logging hours so much easier. I understood from a peer that Outlook used to have this function.

                    • Start a meeting without scheduling it

                      Make a meet now or start a meeting without scheduling it. This will be very important if you are to fully integrate with Skype as that is more of an instant system.

                      • Hi There, is there a way of replicating the Staff Hub scheduler within Teams?

                        Is there any way Staff Hub can be used within Teams as the scheduler tab is very basic?

                                        • Add reminders that can be entered via chat text

                                          Implement slash-commands (like Sl*ck) for reminders

                                          https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/208423427-Set-a-reminder

                                          Display reminders in the calendar so we can manage them easily.
                                          Combine reminders with mentions so colleagues can be reminded.

                                          Fun item: Reminders are like any chat message and can use stickers or emoji etc ... ; we can have Office Drama reminders :-)
