  1. Multiple level approval for time off

    currently there is only an admin level approval feature, it's better if we could have multiple level approval by specify managers or team supervisor. for example:
    step1: team member request a time off
    step2: supervisor or manager approve or deny request/ if approve, go to step3
    step3: HR department finally approve

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. Warn me if I schedule overlapping shifts for an employee who's in multiple groups

    I have staff in multiple groups within one team. It would be good if I am alerted if I enter overlapping shifts.

  14. Time off approval should delete existing shift

    When approving a time off request, if there is an overlapping shift for that day or time, the shift should be automatically replaced with the time off.

  15. 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.

  17. Staff to view other staff's shift information

    From the StaffHub App, staff should be able to see other team members shift information.

    When we build shifts, its not only shifts to be in the store but to deliver and go to clients location. In those cases, there's the need to be able to view other staff's shift that is going to same client.

    Also, registration of location function might be an idea...

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. View calendar by employees or by shift

    Have view option where you can choose to view the calendar either by the employees or by the shift.
    So I could could view as :
    8:00 AM-5:00 PM shift:
    Tyler
    Matt
    Steve
