  1. I want to be able to add/remove holidays that are specific to my region

    I want to view federal holidays through shift. I also want the ability to personalize, i.e., add/remove, holidays that are specific to my region.

    For example, California recognizes Cesar Chavez Day, but not Columbus Day. I want to be able to add Cesar Chavez Day and remove Columbus Day.

  2. Shifts handover

    In shifts calender you have slot called "day notes".
    if we where able to attach a word dokument in this slot, it would make us able to add a word template for Day & night shift handover.

    this would be a great improvemt for the usage on "day notes" & make us able to have shift plans and handovers in one place

  4. time selections past midnight

    We operate 3 shifts, and when an employee has to enter in a time change that goes past midnight, the change shows for 2 days on the schedule vs just showing for that 1 day. Can Shifts be corrected to adapt for third shift coverage?

  5. Color Coding

    Allow owner or user to set the color coding for requests so that any time a user makes a request the color code is standard for all team members. (i.e. all vacations will appear pink on the schedule and it is not up to the owner to set them manually) Additionally, add more color options.

  6. Shifts--Page to view all vacation requests

    Can there be a page or tab added that allows an owner to view all requests? It would need to be broken down into vacation, or whatever options the user chooses. It would also be nice to select the view, i.e. all requests, unanswered, future, etc.

  8. 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.

  9. Allow sorting in Shifts

    When viewing by Shift, add a feature that allows you to sort the order of the Shifts. We custom name our shifts and need to be able to easily find the shift we are looking for. Currently the shifts do not appear in any discernible order. Thank you.

  10. Allow associates to add notes to their own shifts

    I want to be able to add notes to my own shifts. For example if I make an appointment with a customer, I want to be able to add a note so I can keep track of future appointments I've made

  11. Shifts may need some enhancement.

    I Have been using When to Work (W2W) scheduling tool for last a few years. I find Shifts has similar features in it, however; it may need some improvement.
    1. Members in W2W can request time off and put it in the schedule and it goes to supervisor/manager to approve it.
    2. Members can get notification via email when their schedule has changed.
    3. Members can check their schedule via smart phone.
    4. Supervisor/managers receive email when someone put a request for time off.
    5. Shift name edit field should allow more characters input. Currently is limited

  13. shift notifications once approved/record keeping

    send email notification to admin assistants for pay and tracking purposes.
    this should be adjustable to email multiple people including requestor and receiver of shots once the request has been approved. there should also be a way to keep track of all requests, approved or denied, for the team and should be able to filter and print or export requests.

  14. Shifts: Allow entries over several days

    We use shifts for Service assignments which often take several days incl.travel. It would be great to make one entry taking several days i/o copy and pasting every single day, in total it gives a better overview and saves time. Entries over several days a currently only availble for holidays.

  16. Ability in "View by Shift" to see at a glance who's assigned to the tasks

    When viewing the shifts grouped by shift an option to show with a view of who is covering that work would be useful.

    Currently you have to uncover it with the mouseover event.

  17. Timeclock Feature

    I would like to have a Timeclock feature to let employees clock in or out for their scheduled shift. Then at the end of the week create a timesheet for payroll.

  18. Adding AI to generate suggested Shifts schedules and monitor shedules perfomance

    Adding Azure AI to generate suggested schedules based on sales result, foot traffic, inventory receiving, etc. but considering labour hours budgets. For example for retails add foot traffic, historical sales linked with POS, skills rating for employees, so system can generate and suggest schedule filling according salary budget. For hospitably there can be factors as guests or patient numbers. So end user can choose factors, setup budget and get optimized schedules. Adding sales or other performance KPI data overlay versus actual clocked time to generate performance report. For example, import or connect sales result to employee Shift actual clocked hours…

  19. Intergrate Shifts with Payroll systems and Dynamics 365

    Would be logical to compliment Shift as scheduling software/app integrated with Dynamics 365 and payroll systems. So Shift should able generate time sheets approved by managers for payroll data, and have common employee database with Talent/Dynamics 365. Adding AI to generate suggested schedules based on sales result, foot traffic, inventory receiving, etc. would be big bonus too. Adding Time Leave requests would be nice too, to complete front line staff management from single point.
