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.
We need this feature.

Please add this, it is urgently needed.
I manage an office who relies on Staffhub for scheduling and uses a third-party time keeping application, Kronos. It would be very nice if Shifts could integrate with Kronos, so that changes made in Teams can be synced with Kronos.
Just an idea.
Could you provide an estimated time frame for release of this feature? This is a big backwards step from previous staff hub functionality!
Would also be beneficial if you could choose which shifts are to be migrated into outlook, i,e in our instance fieldwork should be synced as dates are not flexible, where as reporting can be moved around and is added more to get an idea of resourcing, this would be excessive an redundant information to import to Outlook. Perhaps this could be achieved by being able to choose whether to sync published and/or unpublished shifts?
Any updates on this feature?
Pleeeease do this!

Keep in touch!
A integration between outlook calendar/ Teams meeting with Shifts could allow us to track a person's schedule. This way we can effectively provide right amount of coverage at our service desk.
You can use Flow to create a link between Shifts and outlook. However, Flow is not available for Shifts imbedded in Teams (yet - apparantly it is being developed)

Agree - you can do this on Staff Hub via Flow, but Teams does not yet support Flow (although apparently MS are "working on it".

Publish shifts to Outlook. Also clash detection so you don't double book someone
Great idea. I have the same issue. The users get a shift assigned and need to add it manually to their Outlook/exchange calendar. An integrated solution would be much better.
it would be good to also show time off requests that have been approved in outlook as well
Any integration is vital. Lack of integration is the reason we decided not to use StaffHub.
Perhaps even a separate calendar called "shifts"
Any sort of integration is crucial.

Once a schedule is complete in Shifts and then Shared with the team, it should show up in Outlook calendar as a separate calendar so that each individual can quickly see if there are any conflicts with other work or personal commitments. An alternative is that it populates in Planner.
