Allow setting a shift as recurring with beginning and end dates
Thank you for your feedback! We are hard at work improving the Shifts app experience including adding recurring shifts. In the meantime, we wanted to share some tips and tricks to help with some pain-points mentioned:
1) Make Edits to Your Schedule (Delete, Undo, Minor Copy Edits): Shifts works similarly to Excel in certain regards, so make sure to highlight shifts with your mouse and utilize keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+Z) to copy, delete, or undo actions. We find it helpful doing this particularly in month view and week view.
2) Copy Button: Use the copy button on the top right to copy any timeframe you need for the entire schedule.
3) Search for Shifts in Creation Phase: When creating a shift, utilize the search command to find shifts that have already been created in the past.
We’ll keep you posted when we have more news!
Recurring shifts would be super helpful! It takes up a lot of time to add each shift.
Shifts would be much more efficient and less time consuming if the recurring feature was added - please consider this.
When I add or edit a shift, I should have the ability to make it a recurrent shift, so I don't have to create it every day of every week/month.
This saves time and makes Shifts a much more useful Shift management application.

I now, that Staffhub will we unavailable and replaced bythe shift add on. In schools for schedule are recurent like recomended before
In schools, the schedule is the same but seen by diferent stakeholders prespectives, like a view to the admin to see grades and teachers shifts and the students to be able to see their schedule
It is a must feature. Our requirement is to schedule the shifts in the mode: one type of shift every Monday every two weeks, another type of shift every Tuesday every two weeks, and so on ...
Basically having the ability to schedule shifts in the same way that Outlook uses for scheduling appointments.
the utility for reoccurrence will be extremely beneficial

This is a must, otherwise you are adding the same shifts every single week.
I agree with this message, the utility for reoccurrence will be extremely beneficial
We definitely need the ability to set a start and end date as well as simply designate a shift as reoccurring. This is one of the most fundamental aspects of the work shift in the majority of business environments.

The number of job schedules that do not meet some sort of recurring pattern is extremely rare. Recurring patterns for job shifts is the normal use case. Without recurrence, shifts are pretty useless.
recurring shifts would be extremely useful to enable weekly shift patterns, too much admin at the moment to set daily
