  1. Remind users to clock in and clock out depending on their shift.

    We use clock in and out times to calculate attendance bonus. But some users forget to clock out overnight, or forget to clock in at the start of their day.

    A notification like "Your shift starts in 5 minutes - Do you want to clock in?" and "Your shift ended 5 minutes ago - Do you want to clock out?" would be so helpful to remind users to do it.

  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. Default view for Shifts

    Currently Shifts defaults to my shifts upon opening, however, my primary task is to look at how the team shifts are scheduled at. I would like to propose an option to have the ability to change the default view to what suits.

  4. More PowerShell Commands for Shifts

    Provide more PowerShell commands in the Teams PowerShell Module for managing shifts with different teams.
    I.e. add/remove shift schedules, updating shifts, import/export etc.

  6. Show shifts that are overtime, involve one or more premium pays or are extra shifts

    Add an attribute to a shift to indicate that particular shift is an overtime shift, involves one or more premium pay types (bonus shifts) or is an additional shift (worked in addition to a typical schedule). Incidentally, a single shift could be all three.

    Shifts - Reflect local timezone
    Is it possible to reflect the local timezone in shifts rather than following the set timezone for the specific Team?

  9. Shifts - Publicly Viewable Schedule

    Shifts would be a nice platform for maintaining and publicizing our on-call schedules if there were some way to allow view access to the schedule.

  10. Time Clock Station

    Will there be a way to set up a Time Clock Station on a Tablet or Desktop so team members do not have clock-in with their mobile phones?

    Not everyone has a mobile phone, unfortunately.

  11. Want to use the Shifts app Time Clock function in Teams desktop app

    It would be great if the Time Clock function in Shifts would be available in Teams desktop app in the future. Because the Time Clock function is currently available for Teams mobile app only.

  12. Reports for Shifts

    I'm trying real hard to get my managers on board with using the Shifts Calendar. The only reason they are hesitant is the lack of reporting. We need to be able to pull reports from shifts to:
    1. Show the total hours for the specific shift types
    2. Show each person's total.

    The existing export of the weekly calendar is not a very good report.

    Allowing Shifts data to easily be pulled using Power Automate and Power Bi would also be helpful with a couple of tutorials.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

    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.

  17. Disable/Filter notifications from Shifts

    There should be a way to disable notifications that come from Shifts such as "requesting an open shift". As an administrator I find myself being added to numerous Teams that uses Shifts but I don't have a need to be notified nor see the activity for that particular team in my activity feed.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! My name is Amir and I am a product manager in the Shifts team. This must be frustrating to get so many notification and I apologize for that. Did you try to disable your mobile notification for activities coming from the Shifts app within Teams? Is this issue mostly on desktop. We will add your ask to our backlog.

  20. 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.
