  1. When exporting only show days off between exported dates

    Currently when exporting data to excel an employee is showing as having 40 days off in a week because holiday is booked over a long period of time.

    I'd like to see the export data only show the days off between the dates I export.

  2. Scale the notes field when on week view

    It would be great if the notes field could scale. Right now If an employee is looking at the week view they can see there are notes in there but if there are a lot of notes they cant read them all unless they export the calendar to pdf. We use the note field so employees can see when their lunch is and where they are supposed to be working at during their shift.

  3. Cover Staff

    Allow staff to identify who is covering for them when requesting time off. This a) allows the manager to check there is cover b) can notify the backup person that they are off and need cover

  4. Select day or week to zoom into

    When highlighting a specific day in the month view and selecting day or week view, it should go to the highlighted day but it instead goes to the first week or day in the month.

  5. Additional permission settings for group members

    As of now if I add a member to group, though it is added READONLY user, he can still create new Groups.

    Added member do not have option to share Files.

    Can these permissions be added for increased efficiency and better control on users ?

  6. Limit number of hours employees may work based on time frame.

    At University establishments, student workers are limited in the number of hours they can work weekly. Adding a "maximum hours" field that is related to a time frame field (per day/week/month) would be helpful. This limit of hours would be useful in querying shift swaps/offers and ensuring they do not go over their limits.

  7. Send a swap or offer request to multiple team members

    Make it so you can sent a swap shift request to multiple team members. That way, all have the option to Decline the request with reasons, but first to Accept gets the shift (with manage approval). Or, make it so you can "Offer My Shift" but have an option be "Entire Team". Without this feature StaffHub is going to be really difficult to use in our environment.

  8. Set maximimum amout of annual leave

    It would be useful to be able to set the maximum amount of annual leave an employee can take, this would reduce as annual leave days are taken.

  10. Allow for multi-day shifts

    We need t be able to set and manage the schedule for tour leaders who are assigned to multi-day tours. So I need to be able to set the end of 'shift' as more than 24 hours after its start. Currently the end date is uneditable, it's based off the start date and a max of 24 hours

  11. Be able to extend shifts already published

    Once a calendar has been pubished, it would be good if that could then be unpublished or extend the time frame for that published calendar instead of having to publish the next "block".

  12. Add a legend to views

    We usually use only one letter for the shift description. Would it be possible to show a legend below (with "Description", "Begin", "End" and Color code) for all the shifts displayed at the actual page and for printout.

  13. Allow staff to schedule their own shifts.

    We have "flex time" users who can schedule their own time, but that time is locked once scheduled. A "flex time" user who can create/submit-for-approval and submit-edits-for-approval for their own schedule would be very useful.

  15. Paid break details into shift (i.e. lunch break scheduling)

    Insert paid breaks (required by law) into an existing shift like lunch breaks. Also request changes to a scheduled paid break during my existing shift.

    An example of a team that needs this functionality is an IT Help Desk which requires scheduling of lunch breaks to ensure there is always one employee on the phone at all times.

  16. Add Location to Staff Shifts

    It would be nice to add an location to a shift so the employee know's where he needs to be. In addition to that it would be great to add an "navigate" option so new employees can just hit the button and the navigation take them to the location

    Thank you for your suggestion! We’d like to inform that it is indeed possible to set your start of week day under the team settings page. We are reviewing the possibility to set the working days.

  18. Add additional schedule viewing options

    Week view and month view are very text heavy for shifts.
    Visual representation of coverage would be ideal. Need a way to ensure we have appropriate coverage 24/7 365days a year

  19. Allow Staff to Acknowledge Shifts

    When a roster is published we would appreciate staff having to acknowledge from within the app that they accept the shifts they have been rostered for. We could then either contact staff who haven't acknowledged their shifts to ensure they are available or to schedule other staff if they are not available.

  20. Allow Managers to Set Shift Allowances

    It would be useful to have an option in staffhub to define a shift allowance amount. Manager's can then calculate the total shift allowances of each or entire team. Also it will be useful to have an option to download the shifts in an Excel format.
