  1. outlook integrations for shifts

    Once a user is assigned a schedule within shifts the schedule should sync to their outlook calendar.

    It would also be nice to see Available shifts in outlook and be able to accept them (or at least link to the shift in teams to be able to accept)

  2. Shift notification update

    When I make a change in Shifts and a notification is sent to the affected Teams members it only indicates that their schedule was changed. My recommendation would be to indicate which shift, or day, was changed. I manage the schedule for 86 security officers and am constantly making changes to their schedules. We provide security at several locations and need to reassign officers to these different locations several times per week. When I make a change in Shifts, it would be extremely helpful to let our officers know what day and shift was changed.

  3. Default view for Shifts

    Currently Shifts defaults to my shifts upon opening, however, my primary task is to look at how the team shifts are scheduled at. I would like to propose an option to have the ability to change the default view to what suits.

  5. Shifts time clock on desktop

    At the moment, shifts time clock is only available on mobile. It would be useful to add the time clock on desktop too.

  6. Shifts - Date localisation

    Ability to localise dates - In at least AU and UK we use DD/MM - its becomes confusing quickly when half the dates are in local and the other half are in US format

    Thank you for your feedback! We are hard at work improving the Shifts app experience including adding recurring shifts. In the meantime, we wanted to share some tips and tricks to help with some pain-points mentioned:
    1) Make Edits to Your Schedule (Delete, Undo, Minor Copy Edits): Shifts works similarly to Excel in certain regards, so make sure to highlight shifts with your mouse and utilize keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+Z) to copy, delete, or undo actions. We find it helpful doing this particularly in month view and week view.
    2) Copy Button: Use the copy button on the top right to copy any timeframe you need for the entire schedule.
    3) Search for Shifts in Creation Phase: When creating a shift, utilize the search command to find shifts that have already been created in the past.

    We’ll keep you posted when we have more news!

  8. shifts notifications

    SHIFTS: Notifications for upcoming shifts
    StaffHub sent an email to the user assigned to a Shift, to remind them of an upcoming shift. It would be very helpful to have this as an option Teams.

  9. In Shifts, allow multiple shift offering ie. Monday to Friday offer in one block.

    At present we can only offer one shift at a time to someone (similar with swap shifts), What I'm proposing here is that multiple shifts can be offered or swapped as a block, say for example I have 3 weeks worth of work to request that the engineering team leader accepts (if they have the resource availability in the schedule) and then they can freely move those shifts around but essentially I need to block offer that booking up and know if the entire block or some of it can be accommodated instead of having to offer up individual days/shifts…

  11. Shifts - Let non owner manage shifts

    Only team members with owner role are able to manage shifts.

    Would be helpfull to define shifts manager seperate from their team role.
    Shifts are also assigned by supervisors, which are only team member and assigning owner role is not desired.

  12. Import Shifts Template Enhancements

    It would be nice if the Import template had ALL options associated with shifts. For example, I name my shifts (i.e. an 8 hour swing shift is an S8), and code them a specific color, but the import feature does not have options for this which means I have to go through manually and change everything after the fact.

  14. default settings / landing page in Shifts

    If you are member in several teams that are using shifts it is necessary to navigate to your main shift group first, which is confusing for some users.
    In addition, you'll need to jump to the current week manualy.
    Could we get an user based, save-able default setting for shifts, so you'll need to only set it up once (default Group/Team & always show current week)?

  15. Multiple Time Zones in Shifts

    Need the ability to have multiple Time Zones in Shifts. For Global companies a single Time Zone just doesn't cut it.

  17. Adding Shifts as team tab

    With Shifts now in place in Teams, it would also be nice to have a channel tab for Shifts, for easy access within the channels themselves.
