  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Mark company holidays (per location) on schedule

    It would be a good option to have the ability to color the local holidays, so the workers and management could have an overview if that day is a normal business day or a holiday. This is useful for work planning and also for extra-work accountability since these days are counted as extra (at least by our country's law).

  9. Create re-usable shifts that are saved for weekly scheduling and assign a color

    It would be useful to have a place to create shifts. For our team we have mixed shifts (e.g. between Monday to Wednesday it's 09-18h and from Thursday and Friday it's 21-05h). If we could configure these shifts and save (color, notes, etc) it would be easier to do our weekly schedules.

    Thank you!

    I would like to be able to create base shifts. Grocery store example: I have cashiers and shelf stockers. I would like to create a shift named “Cashier – Morning”, “Cashier – Evening”, “Shelf Stocker – Morning”, etc. These shifts would have typical hours and colors…

  10. Be able to share schedule to non-StaffHub users (ie. web link/URL)

    For example, I'd like to be able to publish a weblink for the current schedule, which will allow me to share the schedule with people who do not have StaffHub accounts.

  11. Edit for multiple day

    Add option for context menu for multiple cell selection. For example - allow selecting four days and set time off for en employee.

  12. Make Schedule friendly to managers with 20+ people

    The schedule by day or week its not friendly with managers who handle 20+ persons. A manager will not be able to see if it has cover all 24 hours of the Day. My idea is that a schedule can be separated by Hour/half Hour and fill with colors of each group, each bar will represent a person, so 2 bars from 11pm to 7am will represent two workers from that Group. This way the manager can fill all the 24 hour shift with the different groups.

  14. Show all shifts across groups for a member in each group the member is in

    I'd like for a team member to be shown in more than one group, with all the shifts automatically populating in all groups when a shift in one group is put into the schedule for that person.

  15. Automatic schedule builder

    I would like to have a schedule automatically created for me based on team member availability. A schedule builder would be a nice feature. The schedule would build based on a members availability and skillset. The schedule would be designed to fill shifts within the groups of your team.

  16. View request history for audit purposes

    I would like to be able to view a history of "approved" or "denied" holiday requests for audit purposes. I would like to have somewhere where I can view any of the requests my team have made for holiday even if I have denied them. This is so I can count up total days of holiday taken, or see if somebody has previously been denied leave on a certain date or series of dates.

    Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for all of your comments on this idea. We’re excited to say that we’re starting to work on surfacing more request functionality on the web application, starting with the ability to view in progress and done requests, and act on requests.
    We will let you know as soon as it goes live!
    Thanks,
    StaffHub Team

  19. have all-day shifts or ones which can go across multiple days for on-call/support

    Our helpdesk agents are scheduled to work the same shifts for a week at a time. To initially set this up you have to create the shift and then select and apply the shift for each day of the week. It would be useful if for example when you create an initial shift on a Monday you could set that shift to be the same for the following 4 or 6 days. This would allow a weeks worth of scheduling for an agent to be done by adding only 1 shift

    We have some people who will be rostered to…

  20. Customize members shown on schedule view

    I'd like the ability to show/hide individual members or groups on the schedule. For example, I do not want to show the users with only a consultative role.
