The manager/owner can edit the request options for time off. You can set to only have one option for all time off requests and put the details in the notes of the request. That is what we do. You could use Appt, Out of Office, Vacation, or Personal with as much or as little detail as you would like and put personal notes such as "Doctor appt for child" in the request notes. Notes in the request do not show on schedule unless the manager adds it after approving the requested time off. Does this do what you want?
Integration with Outlook is planned. We will update you as we have more details.
Thank you for your feedback! We are hard at work improving the Shifts app experience including adding recurring shifts. In the meantime, we wanted to share some tips and tricks to help with some pain-points mentioned:
1) Make Edits to Your Schedule (Delete, Undo, Minor Copy Edits): Shifts works similarly to Excel in certain regards, so make sure to highlight shifts with your mouse and utilize keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+Z) to copy, delete, or undo actions. We find it helpful doing this particularly in month view and week view.
2) Copy Button: Use the copy button on the top right to copy any timeframe you need for the entire schedule.
3) Search for Shifts in Creation Phase: When creating a shift, utilize the search command to find shifts that have already been created in the past.
We’ll keep you posted when we have more news!
Group Calendar is a priority for the team, and the feature team is continuing work on it. You’ll start to see some incremental improvements. We look forward to sharing more details and timeframes soon.
