  1. See who's on shift in the mobile app (Like StaffHub does)

    I would like to see who's on shift in the mobile app. Staffhub shows this but the Teams app does not.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Shifts - superior approving your requests

    Let superior approve your requests for Holiday etc.
    Now person who created shift plan is the one who is approving all request.
    If company has "Manager" atribute synced from AD to AAD then your superior should be notified about your requests.

  7. Federal holidays in Shifts

    It would be helpful if federal holidays are displayed in shifts, e.g. by a continuous grey bar or similar.

  8. Share a shift to a group

    It’s possible to share a schedule
    to the user assigned to it and to the entire team! It would be useful to share the schedule to a group in shifts also

  10. Shifts - Custom request reason

    Shifts - Custom request reason. These seem to be limited in the Shifts application to unpaid, vacation, off, sick day and parental leave.

  11. Double booking.Staff can pick Shifts from multiple schedules. ie 2 AM shifts on same day!

    Our business has multiple services and offers the shifts to all the different teams however there is nothing in Shifts thats says "Sorry you all ready have a shift at ..... " so staff can double book and not realise.

  12. 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.

  13. Vacation Accrual and Tracking

    I would like to be able to use Shifts as a PTO tracking System.

    Each employee should have a PTO and Sick Balance that is tracked in Shifts according to their accrual rates.

    When they request PTO/Sick, shifts should show both the employee and the manager how this request will affect their balance at the time the PTO/Sick is taken so we know if they will be going negative or not.

    Also when the time is approved by the manager their balance should be deducted.

  15. allow people to request Open shifts on the desktop version

    currently the app is the only way for employees to request an open shift. Would like the feature to be available on the desktop for those who don't want to use the app

  16. Blocking Shifts - Off time

    If an employee is scheduled to be off, or on vacation, teams should not allow me to assign a shift, or maybe a popup can appear saying so-and-so is on Holiday, do you wish to assign the Shift ... anyway?

  17. Shifts (StaffHub) - Email all staff scheduled to work on the current day

    Please add the ability to email all staff currently scheduled in Shifts (StaffHub) for the current day. This is important for managers to communicate with all current day scheduled staff in one easy step. This could be a Flow, but current Flow templates don't support this.

  20. Shifts - Let me see the entire team's schedule and not just mine on the App!

    If I am part of a customer service team, but am in a separate "group", I cannot view/manage other's schedules from the app because I can only see my shifts. This is a problem for managers trying to edit the schedule and check availability across multiple groups!
