split shifts opition
add the option to have multiple shifts per day, and also assign colours to specific roles/people
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?
The StaffHub Team
Being able to assign a split shift (even just 2) as a default to a team member would save a lot of hassle. Currently I select 'split shift' in month view to expand the team member's shift for the month. This allows me to copy and paste shifts for the month, but I have to add a split shift per week so the option stays available when going back to week view. If I create a shift with a 'lunch' of 1 hour unpaid the 'lunch' activity does not appear in pasted copies of the original shift.
As a use case for color coding .. we have staff that work at client sites on an outsourced basis - we use color coding to identify the area/building they're working in.
NOTE: the need for color coding is really a workaround for Staffhub's lack of "Site/Sub-Site" functionality.
For example; We have a group for a University - but we color code for Science building, Med School, etc. We do something similar for an industrial client with multiple buildings (client = group; building A = pink, B = blue, etc.)
My team works shifts on a daily basis on flex time and therefore not to a set hour schedule so this would be a welcome addition for us. Currently I am using the "Time off" option to schedule a day shift that shows the title of the shift on the mobile app (rather than the scheduled working hours as shift shows).

Thanks for your reply, with regards to the colours, we in the care sector assign staff to work with specific people, so if this could be included with colour reference that would be great

Enter a shift for the day and not hourly
