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)
Integration with Outlook is planned. We will update you as we have more details.
This isn't even something that you should have to integrate. Shifts should always have been a feature in outlook groups. Microsoft is dumb in the way that they make all these huge apps with tons of config and no real usefulness for business. Why do we need six different way to chat??? Your platform is a mess. Switching to Google is something we're seriously considering. Cool features are useless when they take reading doc's for six hours and a PhD to implement.

Tina Rivera commented
This would be a very useful feature for employees and supervisors. Any updates on when we can expect it?

When is this being added?
Matthew Vance commented
This is 100% necessary, or shifts is fairly useless for most of my staff.
Do you have any plans to make it so we can drag a Worker from one group to another? Also on the desktop version of Teams in the Shifts module, Can we have the option to edit Worker availability? Thank you.

It makes it tough to adopt this application when this integration is not available. Could we please get an update to when/if we can expect this.
Yes it us kinda useless without the integration. Another thing I would like to see that especially for holidays that you easily can see how many days/hour did I take off already this year :) probably need to put that in another request.
An integration with outlook and ability to sync with other platforms (google cal) would make this app functional for use.

Any update on this? What feature will come when?
To add my thoughts to the cacophony of requests for integration of shifts with Outlook, this update is critical to the deployment of this tool. I struggle to understand how Shifts was released in its current format. Nearly every aspect of this tool that I expect to be there I find listed as a planned update.
Outlook Integration is the most critical yet.
How is it that this has been released for public consumption?
Can you provide any updates on timing of the alleged planned update?
The easiest way may be to set up a "calendar subscription" (example.com/cal.ics) for each user. This allows the user to use the shift plan on each end device.
I second this notion.
Shifts without outlook-sync is useless.....

This feature would be highly appreciated. Is there any way we can get more information regarding this?

Guys... This was expected! You don't have a MVP without Outlook syncing... Why such limited features for a giant like Microsoft? Disappointing! You're better than this.
