    The message feature is great, but kind of silly that we can only access it from the mobile platform.

    This needs to happen. With the latest update on IOS, I now have staff who can only access StaffHub from the web version. They are only able to see their shift and the first few words of any notes for that shift.

    Developers, is there any reason for not having the same features that are available in the app like messages and others available in the desktop version? Most software has more features in the desktop version but not this one. Why is that?

    implement the chat you can use in the app, to the desktop version as well. It's really annoying that you have to use your mobile phone if you want to communicate with your team.
    Would much more easier and faster if it would look like whatsapp-web

    This would definitely be useful for the shift managers who anyway use the PC and web interface to plan the shift and upload the files etc. I notice that StaffHub has decided to integrate with MS Teams, but guess what: not all companies nor shift managers use Teams. Their workday is extremely hectic and context-switching is not something that should consume their time. MS Teams is great for white collar, office workers - please don't mix those two target groups.

    This would be very helpful for users who cannot get cell coverage during a shift.

    Not just messages, all features in app should be available via desktop. Request time off, would be especially useful.

    I was unable to access the mobile app for sixty days after a regulation O365 password change, and while my issue was eventually resolved I could only access the web app for that entire length of time. I was without administrative functionality during an introductory period for my team of 40+ and I missed every single message that was shared for that entire two months because it's a mobile-only feature.
    If there had been a way for me to even just read messages sent out by my team, I would've been very grateful!

    I think the Staffhub team needs all resources on this! not all people are deskless! Maybe there is a manager who wants to communicate from the desk, while others are deskless....

    Some of my staff and schedule managers that are non-salaried do not want any work-related apps on their phone, but they want the ability to send and receive messages with the staff as they are primarily on a desktop during their shift.
