      • Allow schedule to sync with Outlook calendar.

        I have in my business multiple calendars between management software, desktop calendar, tablet and smartphone and I think this should allow them to update across platforms to avoid entering multiple times.

        • Add people to shifts not shifts to people

          We have very set shift times with standard breaks everyday. It would make it easier for managers to assign people to, say the lunch shift, rather than creating a new shift every time sometimes forgetting to add the breaks etc.

          • Options for copying schedules

            We would like to see options when copying schedules:

            1. Choose which groups to copy (not every group follows the same pattern). This is so key!!! We cannot use the feature right now because it copies every group.

            2. Choose if you want to add to or replace any existing shifts that are in the schedule

            3. Option to leave any pre-approved vacation in place and not have it written over!

            • Release Shift

              Instead of swapping shifts, or offering them you could release the shift and then anyone could pick up the shift. This way you don't have to offer your shift to everyone you work with.

              Thank you!

              • Waitlist a vacation request

                Sometimes a vacation request isn't approved or denied. An employee can be waitlisted. Make that an option next to the Approve and Deny button for the manager.

                • Delete All Future Scheduled Shifts When Person is Removed from Team

                  When deleting a person from a team, they still remain to be seen when moving forward in the schedule to future weeks you already had them scheduled for. This makes it cumbersome to continually remove them from these shifts throughout the remaining time you have them scheduled. It would be nice to have the option to 'delete pending shifts' when removing someone from the schedule.

                  • Cutting and Pasting Shifts w/ Breaks Embeded

                    Being able to cut and paste shifts without having to manually add breaks to each day. This is very time consuming.

                    • Drag and drop shifts

                      I would like to be able to drag and drop a shift either to another day or to another person. A copy drag (ctrl key modifier?) would be a bonus.

                        • Admin access on App: Ability to edit Shifts from the App

                          Managers (or admin) should have access to changing employees’ shifts using the app. Currently the only way to change someone’s shift is by logging on to the site using a computer.

                          • Offer custom schedule requests that are not time off, ie. 'Work from home'.

                            In my team, some of the employees are allowed Home Office 4x a month, currently there is only option to request time off via the StaffHub application, but could there also be an option to request working from home pending manager's approval

                            • Have a button on the top that says TODAY so that you do not have to scroll 2-3 months to get back to the current date.

                              Have a TODAY button at the tope of the screen so that as you are viewing monthly schedules you can default back to the current date.

                              • Ability to filter by group, and expand/collapse all groups

                                This will make large schedules easier to navigate to the group you need.

                                Collapse all groups makes it quicker to find the group you are working on.

                                AND, filter to specific groups makes it easier to navigate around the page. having to go all the way back to the top to change views and back to bottom to see your group is time consuming and frustrating.

                                • Automated shifts systems

                                  Organisations such as the Fire & Rescue Service require a minimum staffing level to operate. Dedicated shifts systems form the basis to provide the staffing requirements. Once structured staff can then formulate their own shifts following simple principles on numbers skills (groups) and hours required.

                                  • Create open shifts that can be accepted by all group/team members

                                    We have a requirement to set up 'unassigned' shifts that team (or group) members can sign up to and accept. These shifts would need to be marked as 'Open' or 'Unassigned' until a team member accepts to do them. As an additional feature, the team manager should be notified when an employee accepts a shift. Is it possible to do this in the current application? It would be great to be able to handle this scenario. Thank you.

                                    • Location Closed Days

                                      We are using StaffHub in an office environment mainly to manage the hours of part-time employees and vacation time for all employees.

                                      Right now, to notify employees of days the office is closed for Federal Holidays, we have to put this in as time off for each individual employee with a tag we created for this purpose.

                                      Could there be a feature to mark the entire day as a non-operating day / holiday for all employees to see in their schedules?

                                      • Staff are part of multiple teams; allow the ability to calculate all hours for all teams scheduled for that week

                                        I have 3 separate Teams. Mostly different staff on each team but a few that are on all 3 teams.
                                        Would like to have a total for staff that includes all the hours they are scheduled in a week across all teams, rather than only showing the hours scheduled in one specific team at a time.
                                        This will help avoid OT when using the "open shift request" function.

                                        • Alert (sound/vibration) before "activity" is supposed to start.

                                          It would be helpful for my team to get an alert on their mobile device 15 minutes before an "Activity" is suppose to occur. Sometimes the team gets bogged down during regular work and looses track of the clock. A reminder (like an Outlook Meeting Event) would be of great help.

                                          Bonus points if the manager can toggle if an alert is needed for a specific Activity or not.
