  1. Shifts Hourly view to my Hours of Operation

    When in Shifts viewing the hourly view have ability to set the time range.
    Instead of showing 12am to 12pm allow me to customize it to that only my hours of operation are showing 7am to 10pm etc.
    Also allow for marking specific days as closed.

  2. Shifts

    We want to use Shifts to align our absences in the teams. It should be possible to enter time-offs just once in one team for a team member and these time-offs are directly transferred/visible in the other teams in which this person is a member. Changes should also be done only once and be visible to all teams.

  3. Allow multiple existing shifts on the same member

    Make it possible to add multiple existing shifts on the same member. The only possible way seems to be on Day view or creating a new shift (not use the exisiting shift).

  7. Show Shifts from All Teams

    Offer a view in Shifts where managers can see all employees and shifts, not just one team at a time. I have employees on different teams and need to keep track of all of them. Toggling between 6 different teams to do so isn't productive.

  8. Shifts: Make color themes editable

    We finally have Shifts but I now cannot change the Theme colour of my time type off. Please make this editable like in StaffHub. So I can give the colour blue not the name blue but anything I would like and is useful for our users.

  9. Shifts - Publicly Viewable Schedule

  10. Integrate outlook calendar/Teams meeting with Shifts

    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.

  12. Add Reporting to Shifts, add time off caps.

    It would be a must for our business to have reporting on the total number of time off days for each time (Vacation, Sick, ect.) be reported in Shifts.

    We would also benefit from being able to set caps per user on how much of each Time Off type they can request.

  15. Allow Shifts to be accessed in browser

    Allow user to view just shifts in browser without having to load the Teams app, or go via Teams in the browser.

    With Shifts in Teams, there is some disconnect with what is available in StaffHub (understandable, but makes things tricky).

    A schedule created in StaffHub can't be viewed in Teams.
    A schedule created in Teams can't be viewed in StaffHub.

    StaffHub is currently a little more user friendly for large scale rota planning. It's quite buggy in Teams when dealing with a large number of people.

    Being able to edit a Teams-based schedule in a browser - just like…

  19. Shifts: option for a two week schedule view

    Shifts: schedule view: current options are for one week or one month. Would like to be able to view 2 weeks at a time, which is a pay period at our company. This would be useful to be able to view on one screen if part time employees are schedule their required hours for the pay period.

  20. Add alias user without email in shifts

    I know that the guest user ideas is in planned status.
    (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36605296-guest-user-in-shifts)

    Besides guest user, I think having alias user(no email, just give a alias name to his/her e.g. Volunteer A/ Temp A...etc) in the shifts could be useful in some scenarios. Those people might be in recruiting, might be from other parties which we would not directly contact with. I don't need them interacting in the shifts planning but I need to include them in the shifts for the time/headcount planning
