  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Be able to disable swapping shifts

    Our staff aren't allowed to swap shifts among themselves so it would be preferable to hide this option in the user interface.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  8. Reminder notifications for tasks/to-do's

    send notifications for to do list
    You should get a push notification for items on your To Do list, since they are set to a certain time/date similar to task reminders in Outlook.

    Add a notification if someone else assigns a “TO DO” to me and a notification when a deadline passed without action.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    Hi,

    [Edited]
    Thanks for your comment.
    This feature is in the process of being rolled out over the next couple of months. When it is, you’ll be able to toggle on the ability to turn on announcements and be surfaced an alias that will reach your entire tenant as well as whitelist people who can mail to this alias.

    Please keep an eye out for the O365 Message Portal for when this feature is released! We’re excited for your feedback. Thanks.

    Thanks!

  14. 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.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your suggestion! We’ve released a preliminary version of this feature on our mobile devices that allows you to set how soon before your shift you are notified. This is a work in progress, so we’ll be improving on this feature. Let us know if you have any suggestions or ideas.
    Thanks,

  17. Multi-location clock in locations for different groups in a team.

    Different groups within the same team have different working locations. So allow different clock in locations for different groups.

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. Here is one way you can create multiple shifts per day in the weekly schedule view on web. If you right click a day that already has a shift you’ll get the menu drop down. If you go to the last option in the menu “More” and then you’ll see in the sub menu an option to “Add Shift” to that day as a second shift. So multiple shifts could be possible this way. Please let us know if this works.

    Can you provide a little more details about how you’re hoping to use specific colors for specific roles/people?

    Thanks!

  19. 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...

  20. 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.
