Enable Shifts for Government cloud users - GCC
Please enable SHIFTS for government cloud users - GCC. I work at a government agency. We use Office 365, just starting to experiment with Teams. We have GCC license. We have shift workers - in fact 3 shifts each day 24 x 7. Shifts will be an extremely useful tool for us to schedule our workers. Currently we use a spreadsheet.
Shifts is now available in GCC. For more information, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/apps-and-services-cc1fba57-9900-4634-8306-2360a40c665b?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US#PickTab=Shifts.

Agreeing with all the others, we need to have not only Shifts available to GCC, but Manage Apps in TEAMS. Not sure why this is taking as long as it is to implement. We have these features in our Education Tenant now.
We would like to see Shifts available in the GHH High government cloud as well. I don't see that it is available at this time.
We are seeing that SHIFTS is now available for the Government Cloud version of Teams.

Please enable Shifts for GCC. It is a Microsoft application therefore it should have been one of the first 3rd party apps to work

Our (different) Public Library is also highly interested in Shifts.

We are a Public Library and could use Shifts in the GCC

Agree with others especially during the COVID-19 era when we are working unusual hours, teleworking, or alternating telework with in-office work, this seems like it would help.
I was under the impression that GCC license would have same or greater functionality as enterprise license with the added security of Government separated network. I am now told that no business apps are available through the GCC licenses. Which makes no since the Government is a business and needs the same business productivity suites.
This is now on the roadmap and looks like it is being made available for GCC.

Hoping this becomes available for GCC tenants soon.
Is there any update on if/when this feature will be available?

This would be very useful with our staff are working remotely due to COVID. Managers need to be able to better see who's working on what and when.
This would be highly useful now that so much of our staff are working from home. Managers need to be able to better see who's working on what and when.

Local governments without sophisticated scheduling and timekeeping systems would benefit greatly from Microsoft Shifts.
Another vote to add shifts
Shifts for Teams would be a great asset for our organization as well. First responders with schedule visibility on mobile devices would be extremely helpful for our users.
Shifts app would be super beneficial to our state agency. Please consider adding Shifts to the GCC pack it would be a tremendous benefit to our agency. Thanks!. Hopefully sooner than later.
Yes, please enable in GCC. We are having to create our own version of this until it is available.
Shifts enabled in GCC is an essential tool that could be utilized by the federal agencies. It is especially pertinent during this time of increased telework and alternate work schedules.
