  1. 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. 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.

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

  6. Shortcut to Switch Manage and Overview "view"

    I would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut to switch from Manage to Overview. It would be much faster not to have to remove your hands from the keyboard.

  7. Enable more admin permissions granularity

    Allow only certain admins to be able to approve time-off requests, but allow everyone to publish schedules.

    It should be possible to assign a manager(s) to each staff member who is responsible for approving annual leave / shift swap requests. We have a large staff base and each line manager is responsible for a sub-section.

  8. Ability to add customizable labels to shift colors

    Right now colors are just labeled the colors, but it would be nice to be able to edit the labels for each color. For example if I want to designate a color to represent a location, or maybe I want to designate employee types like manager, assistant or associate.

  9. 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 ;)

  10. Allow open shifts for overtime scenarios

    Allow administrator to offer an overtime shift to team members who can respond if they are available, the order in which the responses are received are logged and it is also possible to keep track of who performed the overtime.

  11. View Only Option for Staff Hub

    We really need the ability to set a view only option for schedules. Meaning staff cannot make shift change requests. They can only view their schedules and contact managers with questions or concerns.

  12. shift swap default date

    When requesting a shift swap, the date of the shift to be swapped should be the default date for the person you want to swap the shift with.

    At the moment you have to select the date twice.

    1st. when you select your own shift you want ot swap.
    2nd. when you select the person you want to swap with as it currently defaults to the present date.

  13. Disable or enable Time Off reasons based on relevance to team

    We have added 'Training' as a custom Time Off reason. This reason is being used by managers/supervisors to add training days to their teams' schedules, but there wouldn't be the scenario where a team member would request time off for training. Likewise, company policy dictates that team members must call their manager if they are sick, and the manager would then update the schedule with this data. It would be really useful if there was an option to select what Time Off Reasons can be displayed in the app and which options can't so that the team member would see…

  15. Add option to show week numbers in calendar

    I would like an option to show/hide week numbers in the calendar view. Week numbers in others views would be helpful as well.

  16. Show team member's scheduled hours in mobile

    My team members are limited to only 10 hours per week max as they are student-workers. I would be nice for them to be able to see how many hours they are currently scheduled for each week so that if they need to swap shifts or cover someone, they can easily tell if they have the capacity. Could be nice for them to be able to see others' capacity, as well, to determine if an offer or swap is needed.

  17. 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.

  19. Only allow people to be invited from the team page.

    Currently, once you add a member on a group schedule, it auto adds that member to the team.

    It would be helpful to have a limitation on staff selection for the schedules on specific teams. For instance, I cannot assign someone on a team schedule if she is not added on the team in the first place.

    This means that you will need to add the person on the team page first before seeing her as one of the options to roster for that team.

  20. Need more reporting, like how many hours each staff member has worked in a week

    For each staff member have their total hours per week and then with each shift they are given subtract off the hours per weeks so that you can balance all staff shifts.
