  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. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Shifts connector for Flow or Logic apps

    It would be great to have a connector for Shifts to Flow of Logic Apps, just like Stafhub has currently.

    Actions can include:
    - Get a schedule for a team in a certain timeperiod
    - Get the shift for a teammember
    - Get all teammembers with shift X on day Y.
    - Assign shift to teammember(s)
    - Change Shift of teammember(s).

    Triggers can include:
    - When your own shift changes
    - When a new shift is added
    - When there is a request for change/absence etc...

  15. Enable Shifts for Government cloud users - GCC

    Please enable SHIFTS for government cloud users - GCC. I work at a government agency. We use Office 365, just starting to experiment with Teams. We have GCC license. We have shift workers - in fact 3 shifts each day 24 x 7. Shifts will be an extremely useful tool for us to schedule our workers. Currently we use a spreadsheet.

  16. Want to use the Shifts app Time Clock function in Teams desktop app

    It would be great if the Time Clock function in Shifts would be available in Teams desktop app in the future. Because the Time Clock function is currently available for Teams mobile app only.

  18. Recover shifts data

    Unforntonaly shifts data is not recoverbable at the moment.
    We will like that you could have a recycle bin or a versions options available for Microsoft shifts.

    Also the we could have a retention policy for Microsoft shifts.

  19. Notification of requests in Shifts should be more visible

    When working in Shifts on in the desktop client, new requests are not very obvious. Only some requests can be seen as a pulsating entry in the Monthly view for example, but that requires you to have the month in question in view. You need to open the Requests view in Shifts to see the requests.

    The obvious place for these notifications would be to have them visible in the Activity view in the client, where all other notifications are shown.

    What would also be nice-to-have is to have a specific notification easily visible in Shifts itself, so that as…

  20. 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.
