  1. Shifts Manager permissions for someone who is not a Team Owner

    Allow a permission setting that lets users manage a schedule in Shifts without making them an owner of the underlying team. Needed for scheduling larger teams.

  3. VHA

    I have been playing around with Shifts. It is much more user friendly to set up a schedule for a Team compared to using Excel. Feedback to improve upon for healthcare purposes:

    1) We want the whole team to be able to manipulate the schedule (or at least the ability to give permissions to certain people).
    2) We want the ability to put in "time off" without requesting approval.
    3) We don't need to see times for a lengthy day--rather to specify the hours of operation (like between 6 am to 6 pm)--the schedule view would look much better if…

  4. Ability to Set a Master Schedule

    It would be nice if a master schedule could be set, so that it can easily be copied to future weeks. It seems someone is always out, so any given week will not match the official schedule, which increases the chance of importing an error when copying forward.

  5. Shifts- edit time in desktop app (GCC)

    Currently team members can only edit their time (clock in/out, breaks etc) using the mobile app - and they can see their time sheet on the mobile app. Can we integrate those same features into the desktop app? Shifts in the mobile app is so much more user friendly. But employees shouldn't be using their personal cellphones to download the app and access information. Not all employees are granted work cells.

  6. Shifts - team members export time sheet

    Right now only the team owner can export a members time sheet. However, its important for team members to be able to track their time and export their own time sheet. Currently there isn't a feature for this.

  9. shifts share feature broken

    Fix Shifts Share with Team feature. Changes are made and can be 'shared', but no notification is received by the end user. This is for Windows 10 client, possibly works on Mobile.
