StaffHub will be retired
"StaffHub will be retired
Plan For Change
Published On : September 25, 2018
Action required by April 1, 2019
We're pleased to announce that Microsoft Teams is evolving to include a new set of capabilities that will simplify schedule management and help deliver the tools for every worker to get the job done. Because our investments in schedule management have been developed with Firstline Workers in mind, we’ve decided to retire Microsoft StaffHub and bring this capability in addition to a new Home screen experience, into Teams, making it the platform for all workers"
Very unsatisfying though
I hope this is a good thing but as it stands now even though Shifts is available in Teams it lacks a Clock in/Out function and home screen so not really functional
I want to be able to copy shifts that have a lunch break in them and have them paste with the same break. Currently if I copy a shift and paste the new shift will remove the break.
Any thought on open sourcing StaffHub Mobile App code ? I would like to merge it with my application(s) while reusing underlying O365 API integration.
When will this be added to MS Teams? Please let us know in advance so that we can plan ahead. We pre plot our schedule at least 6 months in advance and this will not help us. I am hoping to hear your response the soonest please.
So when is Microsoft going to stop depreciating products and replacing them with new ones? I am sick of shifting customers to products and then have Microsoft 'change their mind' a year or two in and go 'oh, so we had this awesome idea to disrupt all our customers and release a new product! yay!'

Seems Staffhub feature may be broken up into separate Apps, Home, and Shifts. I'm hoping all the previous "Working on It" Items for StaffHub will still be a the top of the list! We've waited too long for a desktop app with "Employee Number" option for Punch/Check In/Out.
