  1. Start Work Week on Different Day

    Our weeklong shifts change on Tuesday's. Would be nice to see an option to view calendar by a different start day.

  2. Allow scheduling by group rather than individual

    It would be great to be able to create a group, and put that whole group of people into a specific shift. For example, in a surf lifesaving patrol, the same people will always be on the same shift - it would be ideal to put them all in one group and just allocate the shift to that group.

  3. When copying previous schedule, any time off already booked on current week should not also copy a shift from the previous week.

  4. Request overtime

    Like the "request for leave" there should be an option for request of overtime. Deskless workers should be able to trigger overtime if they notice the demand for it out in the field. So the manager can approve or deny this.

  8. Copy a specific team members schedule

    You should be able to select which members schedules you're copying to the next week. That way if you have fill-ins, or people who's schedule changes, you can copy only the parts that stay the same.

  9. Show vacation accruals and update them after timeoffs have been approved

    One thing missing is accounting for holiday allowances for staff. It would be great that when a request for booking time off is made, it knocks the relevant number of days off from that person's allowance.

  10. Enable greater shift swapping rules

    There should be option for manager to put rules on the shift swaps, otherwise they can overlap and by the app you can work for 24h, so manager could just enable more options. For example we have one team, two buildings - they could swap between days (this app could suggest dates), like you cant have night and day shift in a row, and you cant then swap between buildings, app just wont show items that could not be selectable.
    And syncing with calendars ;)

  11. Alert when shift in the past

    Alert when I offer a shift in the past to a colleague (why does this functionality exist at all?)

  12. Allow selection of days and hours range in daily view

    We run a Monday through Friday 8 to 5 schedule and we would love to be able to "zoom" in to have a better view by eliminating the 24 hour only option as well as Saturday/Sunday. A setting menu allowing to select which days of the week and what time range to view when in daily view would be very appreciated by us users!

  13. Custom views or filters of team lists and schedules

    Allow users to customize their view

    If teams are quite large and have multiple groups and individual in the team may only be interested in their own or a subset of the team. Giving them the ability to customize who they see in their view would reduce the need to scroll up and down to search for those they wish to see.

  14. Change preview of shifts

    In order to negate the need to open a day entry in the calendar view, the shift name should show on the preview rather than the team name

  15. Allow adding " Category " rather than on add "shift", which would expand the scope of StaffHub to be used by lot other service industries

    One of the limitation seen in StaffHub is it is not addressing the scheduling challenges of Service industries where the Technicians are mobilized for different site activities.

    MS CRM group calendar was one of the option , requiring a case creation makes it hard for ADHOC plans .

    A lot of small and large companies ( Service company , construction industries, man power supply companies , journalist , police / traffic employees..etc. ), that require deploying staffs to different locations cannot be handled by the existing StaffHub concept.

    There is potential business opportunities out in the market that can be…

  18. Hide staff without shifts in the Day View

    It would be great if after setting up your weekly schedule with shifts/days off, etc. that when switching to the DAY view - staff who are not on shift are hidden from the view

  19. Smart scheduling for students

    It would be wonderful for a supervisor to set the weekly shift schedule, then have students block off when they have class or another job or obligation (and when they DO want to work). You can also include how many hours and shifts a day/week the students want to work. Then have an auto assign button and the program makes the schedule without conflicts.
