  2. [HIGH PRIORITY] Include GROUP when Exporting Time Report

    Include GROUP Column in Exported Excel Time Report.

    This is for payroll purposes.

    Separate Member Data according to Group

    For example:



    • GROUP A is manage by MANAGER A

    • GROUP B is manage by MANAGER B


    • MEMBER A works on both GROUP A and GROUP B


    Exported data should separate clock-in clock-out information for GROUP A and GROUP B so that MANAGER A and MANAGER B can handle MEMBER A indepentently by filtering by GROUP on exported data

  4. Shifts - edit time and export time sheet in desktop app

    Please allow team members to edit their time and export their time sheet in the desktop app. They can edit their time in the mobile app, and even view their time sheet. However they are not able to export their own time sheets.

  5. Edit one shift affects all team members on same shift

    When I add an activity or an update to one shift, I would like the changes to be applied to all instances of this job. So If I have 3 guys on a crew, when I change one, it updates all jobs

  6. Disable approval

    For a normal office, SHIFTS can be a very useful tool in these Corona times to schedule who is in the building or not. In this scenario it would be good to be able to disable the approval part, so any request for an open slot is automatically accepted (assuming an open slot is available).

  7. Allow supervisor to help to clock-in on Desktop

    Sometime the staff cannot clock-in due whatever reason, such as no network, equipment failure, etc. It is better to allow supervisor to help to clock-in in order to capture the working time as well as overtime

  8. Export Shift Time clock filtered by Group

    Allow Owner(s) of a Team to export Shifts time clock data filtered by group.

    For example:
    A Department (Team) have multiple divisions (channel) that is lead by a specific manager (Owner).

    When exporting time clock data, allow Owners to filter dataset base on selected Group. This will be especially helpful if there is an employee working in different GROUPS so that each Owner can manage that specific GROUP

  11. Owners of Shifts being able to add a note to a user

    Owners should have the option to add a note to a spesific user. Not on day notes or shift notes, but too a specific user. Feks, if one user can only work mornings Monday - Friday, Or alwas off Tuesday and Friday, it would be nice to have this option.

  12. Dataset tool that allows for timesheet construction

    Timesheets are a function of every organisation. Is there some way of developing a tool that would assist in timesheet configuration and construction. Many hours are lost with individuals in big and small organisations populating timesheets from shift plans.

  13. Linking seperate shift groups in real time

    Our group have more that one job function that would relate to a different shift. For example one day office, one day co-ordination centre (co-ordination Centre is 7 days a week with 3 different staff over a 3-2-2 on/off/on pattern). Identifying a function within one primary 'shift' should cascade in real time to another 'Shift'

  14. Export to Pivot Table

    The current data export is not Pivot Table friendly. As with the import function the data export should be constructed in such away as to allow for immediate pivot table analysis.

  15. Shifts

    When you approve absence, the hours are not deducted and the shift doesn't move into Open Shifts, it just creates another line for the person. There should be time allotments for allocated absence in order to track how much time is taken, and the user knows how much is left. Otherwise the app is fairly limited in its usefulness

  17. copy to multiple weeks

    When copying a schedule you can only do that for a maximum of 3 weeks. Change this to a field where you can set the number of weeks for yourself (numeric field).

  18. make the status of each person visible on the schedule page

    Make it so you can see who is clocked in on the schedule page without having to download the time report. Indicate it perhaps with a green checkmark at clocked-in time and a red "x" with the time they clock out

  19. Shifts needs Military-Friendly Jargon

    we use "Leave" for "time out of the office" (as opposed to Sick Time, Family, Personal Paid Time Off, etc). We need the ability to identify a time-off request as "Leave" or "Pass/Liberty". We also need the ability to identify a non-duty day (besides a blank white cell) without counting as hours worked on the weekly tally (because we operate on a Crew Schedule, for example in a 4-3-2 workday pattern). Some shift workers start a shift at, say 0500, and they work until the work is done...how can we schedule such a shift in Teams?

  20. Set up shift notifications through (I) notification in teams, (II) email for swap/change requests and other changes in shift plan. Allow

    Set up shift notifications through (I) notification in teams, (II) email for swap/change requests and other changes in shift plan.

    Allow swap/change requests with notification to entire team.

    Alternatively, create new FLOW connectors that allow to create notification flows for the entire team, NOT JUST the person having created the flow.

    Currently, SHIFTS is not usable for a large team that independently and freely administrates the shift composition and is able to freely swap/change individual shifts.
