  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)

  3. 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.

  4. 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. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. 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...

  12. Support on-call shifts.

    I would like to create an on-call schedule for employees who are required to be on standby for multiple days. Shifts can currently be a maximum of 23h and 45min long. This prevents the creation of on-call shifts that routinely last for weeks.
    Suggestion: Support multi-day shifts, full 24h shifts, or support on-call schedules natively.

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Shifts- let the lunch hours be copied with the shift itself

    Right now, you can create a shift and add an un-paid lunch, but that DOES NOT copy to the rest of the week/schedule if you copy/paste that shift. It would be nice to "default" a non-paid lunch on an 8-5 or 9-6 shift.
