Teams Shifts - Option to not require approval for shift offers & swaps
Owners need to approve all shift offers and swaps, it would be good to have an option not to make approval mandatory, so owners manage the shift schedule, but members can swap and offer shifts without requiring approval.

I absolutely want this. I don't care who takes the shifts, as long as they're filled. And while it's not a problem for *my* team, I'm sure that other groups would need to be able to set things like hour limits, so that approval would be required if a request put someone over their limit per pay period (into full-time, or into overtime).
Making it optional for time-off requests would be useful as well. We are using Shifts for an on-call schedule and are using time off requests for unavailability. The schedulers don't really approve or deny requests. Making it optional would save them time and notification spam.

We would like this option - managers don't need to approve swaps.
I would like to modify this suggestion. As long as the swap does not push either party over 40 hrs, the owner does not need to approve the swap/offer. However, if it does move one or the other over 40...require the approval.
