  1. 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.

  2. Allow Shifts to be accessed in browser

    Allow user to view just shifts in browser without having to load the Teams app, or go via Teams in the browser.

    With Shifts in Teams, there is some disconnect with what is available in StaffHub (understandable, but makes things tricky).

    A schedule created in StaffHub can't be viewed in Teams.
    A schedule created in Teams can't be viewed in StaffHub.

    StaffHub is currently a little more user friendly for large scale rota planning. It's quite buggy in Teams when dealing with a large number of people.

    Being able to edit a Teams-based schedule in a browser - just like…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Add alias user without email in shifts

    I know that the guest user ideas is in planned status.
    (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36605296-guest-user-in-shifts)

    Besides guest user, I think having alias user(no email, just give a alias name to his/her e.g. Volunteer A/ Temp A...etc) in the shifts could be useful in some scenarios. Those people might be in recruiting, might be from other parties which we would not directly contact with. I don't need them interacting in the shifts planning but I need to include them in the shifts for the time/headcount planning

  7. shifts activities

    Shifts - Ability to Add Types of Activities and Customize the Break Time.

    Is there a way to customize the length of breaks. Currently it is showing as "Any". Also are we able to add other activity tasks?

  8. History in shifts, who added, edited, approved and denied shifts

    When multiple users are owner of a shift, we need to see who created a shift, who approved, denied or deleted shifts.

  10. Option to remove weekends in Shifts

    Our organisation doesn't work weekends the majority of the time - as such it would be lovely to have the option to hide weekends until they're needed?

    A little like how we can hide and unhide columns in Excel.

    This way, when we wish to print out the week's overview we don't have to worry about the weekends always being blank and taking up unnecessary room on the sheet.

  11. 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.

  14. Block assigning shifts to unavailable employees

    I would think that in most cases, managers would not want to assign a shift to an employee if they are:
    1)unavailable (using Set Availability in mobile app),
    2)approved for time off, or
    3)already assigned a shift at that time.

    Shifts should block managers from assigning anything to employees when they are unavailable for any of the reasons above. If an employee has been assigned a shift in one group, their unavailability should extend to all groups. In fact, don't even show me that employee as an option when I am assigning a shift. Filter the assign-to-employee list to just…

  15. Please let normal users edit shifts in the Teams Shifts app

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    チームのシフトアプリについて
    Please let normal users edit shifts in the Teams Shifts app


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Microsoft Teams のシフトアプリでは、チームの所有者以外のユーザーがアイテムを作成、編集することができません。
    チームの所有者ではないユーザーでもシフトの編集を可能とする設定の実装を要望します。
    Currently only the team owner can create and edit items for the Microsoft Teams Shifts app, and all other users cannot do the same.
    Thus I hope that a configuration will be implemented to enable users that are not team owners to edit shifts as well.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. In Shifts, allow multiple shift offering ie. Monday to Friday offer in one block.

    At present we can only offer one shift at a time to someone (similar with swap shifts), What I'm proposing here is that multiple shifts can be offered or swapped as a block, say for example I have 3 weeks worth of work to request that the engineering team leader accepts (if they have the resource availability in the schedule) and then they can freely move those shifts around but essentially I need to block offer that booking up and know if the entire block or some of it can be accommodated instead of having to offer up individual days/shifts…

  20. Shifts schedule rename

    It would be great if it´s possible to change the Shifts schedule name or if the name is adopted by the corresponding team.

    At the moment we have amix-up through the Staffhub migration and when a team is renamed
