  2. 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.

  3. Shift change notifications

    We're finding that when shift changes occur, notifications aren't being sent to the members of a schedule on the desktop version of MS Shifts. Much the way conversation notifications from within Teams sends an email, it would be useful if Shifts did the same thing

  4. 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.

  6. Automatically open Shifts to "Today" week.

    I would prefer to have Shifts automatically open the session to the current week, rather than the last viewed week. It can be confusing if I don't realize the dates have changed and that I'm actually viewing the wrong shifts.

  7. Add Shifts to GCC

    Deploy Shifts (Microsoft Teams for Firstline Workers) to GCC clients. It's been available to non-GCC for a little bit of time, but some smaller GCC clients may find it helpful.

  8. 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.

  11. Multiple Time Zones in Shifts

    Need the ability to have multiple Time Zones in Shifts. For Global companies a single Time Zone just doesn't cut it.

  12. Recover shifts data

    Unforntonaly shifts data is not recoverbable at the moment.
    We will like that you could have a recycle bin or a versions options available for Microsoft shifts.

    Also the we could have a retention policy for Microsoft shifts.

  14. 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.

  16. Team Owners can't export time clock data from Shifts

    This is more of a bug than a "feature" request.

    If you have created a schedule for a team, then you can export time clock data. However, if you are a team owner other than the person who initially created the schedule, the export function doesn't work. Nothing happens. I have verified this across a number of tenants, and also have just independently had Microsoft Technical Support reproduce the issue on their end independently. Given that MS has no formal mechanism for reporting bugs, it was suggested that I post this issue here, on the Uservoice.

    The bug is easy…

  17. Staff per 30 minutes shouldn't include lunch and breaks

    If I have a team with my customer support phone staff, I want to see the number of agents I have online during a shift. Right now, when viewing "staff per 30 minutes", I see a total of all staff, regardless of whether or not they are on lunch or in another activity. Lunch and other activities should not count toward the total staff available in that view.

  18. Ability to Clock in/out using the web version in addition to the mobile app

    having the time clock option is great!... if everyone on your team has a smart device and is willing to use it to clock in. It would be very beneficial to have the ability as an employee to clock in for my shift on the computer when I login vs. having to use a mobile device.
