  1. Change notification from bot when adding user to Shift.

    When in Shifts we add a user that did not exist in a Team, then in Teams we get a bit scary message Bot user - very long guid - has added user X to the team. It would be better if we would get information that user was added by the person who did it in Teams. If this is not possible, then at least the message should say "Shifts bot has added user X on behalf of user Y. "

  2. Fixed template shifts with central edition as with permissions

    Hard to get, if already available, or truly missing, a way to make fixed shifts as to be able of withstanding edition across all equal shifts going forward from a give date. Currently, as soon as a single shift is edited it becomes different from previously equal shifts all around, which in turn makes manually updating each one meant to keep being equal quite cumbersome. This should only be optional, and allow permanent definition for shifts as they remain on permission types, so updating its template model, all sharing the same template get updated. If not possible, the addition of…

  3. 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.

  4. Cannot offer shifts to members of different shifts group

    In shifts you can separate members into multiple groups. I have mine separated into regular workers and managers. Managers have a different schedule than regular workers. I do not want regular workers to be able to offer or swap hours with a manager and vice versa.

  5. BUG - Permanently Delete Group in Shifts

    I've had a real hard time trying to replicate this bug, so I'm just going to outline the actions I performed to produce.
    Basically if I 'add time off' and 'export schedule' there is a duplication of data from an old group I deleted.

    - Group 1 in schedules populated with a team roster
    - Group 2 has the same users and schedule, but different timezone
    - Realised that the second group would achieve what I wanted to do easily
    - Deleted Group 2
    - Finished populating Group 1 with data
    - Export schedule

    Please see attached image for clarification.

  6. 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.

  7. Delete a member that is no longer employed

    Allow owners to delete a member without having to remove each scheduled day. Or allow owners to replace an existing team member with a new team member taking over their schedule.

  8. Shifts - Expanded assignee print

    When viewing the shifts grouped by shift an option to print out with a view of who is covering that work would be useful for the management. We have shifts but for each shift you are assigned different work, and the management would like a hard-copy listing for each task who has been assigned there, at a glance without having to scan through the by employees view to find out who is assigned what on that day.

  9. Yearly holiday/vacation planner

    Many companies require before each year end that team members allocate their requests for holiday periods along the next year, following limits on number of days and number of persons able to take the same days within the same period. A must have feature, even if it takes a couple of years to bring it to life.

  10. Ability to assign slots to group members in Shifts via mobile Teams App

    Make it possible to move or allocate an open shift to a group member via the mobile Teams App. Also the ability to move a shift back to open shifts from a user with the ability to comment a reason why as a tracking facility in shifts would be great!

  11. Shift - Manage real working time and display real planning

    When people ask for a day off (or couple of hours off) it's displayed on another line- many lines if you have more than 2 events on a day.... - and the planning begin to be hard to read -
    Beside that, the counts of people by day (or hour) is false as the shift do not disappear from the planning - the calculation of working hours / days off are not done

  15. allow employees to decline Open shifts so theyremove from their list of open shifts

    currently open shifts list all open shifts you requested or didn't request.
    if there could be a step to decline a open shift, this will then move from their current list
    from In Progress to Done
    This way employees know which shifts they said they are available to and are waiting for approval without needing to open each entry

  19. Shifts Shedule in Teams Mobile App

    We use the shifts function to track holiday requests / leave / sickness etc for my team. This works great on the desktop app, but on the mobile app (IOS) the shifts schedule only displays my own holidays (I'm the Team Leader). So even though I can see requests for leave and approve them, it doesn't show me what the team is doing. This means that if I get a request on my mobile device outside office hours, I need to go to my PC and open Teams to see who else is on holiday etc. I've searched the help…

  20. Trello cards attached to Shifts

    So when someone is on shift for a particular task they know without being told what they're working on that day and what they'll need to complete that task. We have Trello cards with checklists and comments underneath that help us keep on track with what is being provided to whom and when, what equipment is being used, etc. If we could view these directly in Shifts, it would save a lot of copy pasting.
