Guest user in Shifts
Would like to add guest users in Shifts as they work alongside other team members.
Due to other priorities, this has been moved to the backlog. We will update you as we evaluate in the future.

The last MS response was from March of 2019????? What on earth is taking MS so long to light this up as a top priority?
Additionally, let's say I ask my schedule builder to build out and plan for the next six months...which will include the Winter Holiday Season. How can I do that without guest users...without empty name place holders? Like, I know that in December, I will hire three new guest workers...but I don't know who they are yet. How can I put their shifts on the schedule when I build it in October?
If you only have part-time workers who may come and go, it doesn't seem logical to add them as a member of your organization, but keep them as a guest to protect your business. Looking for this to be an added function!

Adding my request for this feature to be added.
my guess is that MS does not want this to be a feature so that we will need to pay for at least the basic user lisc even though this was a feature in StaffHub! typical.

Can this please be prioritized
+1 to @ZB
is there any time frame on this ? we really need this operational.
This feature really needs to be there, without it we feel very restricted and its getting difficult to manage. Please provide an update on this
Any update on this please?
I would also require this please give this priory
It's very difficult for me to call MS TEAMS a collaboration solution. Since it doesn't fit all for a collaboration solution and has enormous limitations. The common and essential features are on backlog for ages. Not allowing guest user in SHIFT is one of that kind. Guest user should have access to all features and tools in TEAMS by default. Let the project admin/project owner choose what feature/service will be accessed by guests.
Hi Engineering Team,
Our Account Strategist has encouraged me to post this to UserVoice.
We are the largest health research organization in North America, and have a number of medical resident rotations to manage across our programs. Some of our programs have successfully adopted Teams, and want to use MS Shifts within Teams for their resident's rotation schedules.
The issue is that our medical residents don't have a corporate email account when they receive their initial rotations (due to complexities that cannot be overcome at this time), so it would be ideal if Shifts could be accessible to these residents as Guests - similar to their Guest Access to MS Teams.
Enabling residents' access to Shifts would replace a Word doc that they've been using to manually manage rotations/time off/academic half-days. Shifts also allows more than 1 admin/lead to manage changes to that schedule, and gets updates out in real-time to all of the residents. Furthermore, the mobile-ready, integrated Shifts UI with colour-coding makes it really easy for everyone to use - not only ensuring that rotations aren't missed, but also helping residents to maximize their time on rotation when there are changes.
Please bump up "Guest User Access in Shifts" on the roadmap. For the work effort required, it would have an immense benefit to organizations like ours; especially at this difficult time.

Please give this priority...

We have many volunteers that could take advantage of this app, too expensive to have to give them all MS accounts. Please make this a priority.
This feature will help us making steps forward in the future

I agree with all the other comments. I don't understand how this hasn't been moved out of the backlog and made a priority since COVID when so many people are now remote. Emailing schedules and request for shift changes back and forth is inefficient.
Hello 'Teams Engineering' Team from the UK,
Could you possibly please provide an update to the many questions below regarding allowing Guest users to be assigned a schedule in the brilliant 'Shifts' app?
We are all waiting with baited breath - as we all would find this feature very useful - especially at the moment. I enjoy using the Teams Environment and I don't want to be forced to use another app and pay someone else for their software, when this feature could be added.
Thank you for your time, I hope you are all keeping safe...
