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.
Yeah, this is currently not helpful for us - we want individuals to be able to enter when they are on leave or offsite so anyone on the team can see it without making more work for team owners.
Seriously this is painful. If I make them owner of a team that is O365 connected then they're the full owner of the sharepoint site, mailbox, document library, etc. I want to have someone just manage shifts without gaining God mode over all of the data outside just the teams app
It would be really helpfull, if we get an update on these issue. Normal frontline workers should direktly implement shifts in teams. Without making them as an owner, they have to call everytime the manager and that makes more work for him.
If we make everybody as owner, the frontlineworkers could also accept request. These is really an issue!
So please make an update on these.

This has become a show stopper from using Shifts within Teams. We 'coordinate' our time together as a team; we do not 'assign' shifts therefore member input is mandatory (e.g. planned travel, vacations, etc.).

Please could we have an update on this?

This would be very useful, giving owner access just to change shifts is too much of a risk as it gives too much access on Sharepoint and Teams itself. Microsoft, can we please get an update?
This has been planned for so long now - is there any update?
As per below, please can we have an update on this!

Any updates on this?
We are about to adopt Microsoft Teams within the academic research project, most of the graduate students/employees work part time and they usually schedule themselves. Unfortunately we are not able to implement the same in Microsoft team.
Addition of a role that is able to make schedule would be great. For us it is a must indeed.
We used Staffhub before with multiple people managing shifts.
After the forced migration to teams it became useless because this feature is not existing.
If you port an application to a new environment, please check first if all functionalities are available and working!

Having really now adopted Teams fully this is a real pain in the backside. We have really got people using Teams and Shifts but I now get too many complaints of people who change around their shifts without the ability for the Shifts manager to even be informed. This is not a good thing. Shifts go empty.

We're trying to adopt Teams and Shifts, but we have to use a separate Team just for Shifts due to this limitation. People need the ability to add shifts but not have full control of the Team! Too many Teams leads to confusion and fragmentation.

This would be incredibly helpful. And if you could set permissions so that people could add notes to their own shift without necessarily having the ability to edit other people's shifts. We use this for our construction company, and if our guys in the field could make notes within their shift if for example, they stayed longer than the planned time, or if they need to input additional information about the job. The details section having a character limit is also bad for us, if that could be removed or increased, that would be awesome!
Have anyone heard any comments about this?
This is right now a delabreaker for me sadly

This isn't a major roadblock as we're a small company, but it's definitely a concern for us as it adds more room for user error.
Having the ability to allow user managers to approve without being an owner would be ideal. This is a feature we're interested in using and this is going to slow down our adoption.

the mandatory move from staff hub where you can have different people managing the schedule into MS teams where anyone who needs to manage the schedule needs to also be an owner of the team is ridiculous. the people in MS who are in charge of these programs needs to use the programs in the real world before implementing any of these 'improvements'
Managers of a team may not be the person who manages the schedule of the shifts, a person who manages the schedule in an organisation would not have permissions or ownership of the whole team.
This is a showstopper. It's not at all clear when you set up shfits that anyone that is "allowed to schedule" a shift has to become a team owner. This is a HUGE roadblock that is keeping us from moving from Staffhub.
IF it's not fixed soon we're going to have to move from Staffhub to a third party competitive product rather than to Shifts.
This needs to be fixed, Microsoft.
Yes this is needed ASAP now that staffhub is being shut off
would love this implemented pretty quickly. Thank you.
It is stopping our full adoption of the Teams System for managing our resources.
