  1. Sync calendar with iCal. Make the calendar subscribable by people.

    I would be great if my wife could subscribe to my work schedule so she can see changes. Alternatively I can access it in my iCal and see it along all my other obligations.

  3. Enter multiple dates of availability

    A way that employees can enter multiple dates of availability, as opposed to generic Monday to Sunday (All Day). Be more like: e.g Monday 11th June (9am-3pm), Monday 18th June (11am-6pm).
    So that managers/supervisors can do multiple rota's weeks in advance. With staff who's availability are always varying.

  4. Differentiate between an administrator and a manager.

    Differentiate between an administrator and a manager. Admins can support the department by creating shifts and adding/assisting employees but requests are sent to managers only for approval.

  5. Show available team members for Open Shifts

    If would be fantastic if we could develop shifts as an object and then see the available team members for that shift. We do a lot of event management and it would be nice to creat an event and staff hub would show the available team members for said event. This would be in contrast to the current system of working solely on the availabilities of team members and “hunting” for an open slot in everyone’s time.

    This could also correlate to a open shift field. For instance if it has not yet been assigned but is created and ready…

  8. Scheduled breaks view

    It would be great if there was a view which displays only break times allocated to each staff member. We need to ensure we have 70% of the team available to take calls at any given time and as such stagger lunch breaks and tea breaks to achieve this. Presently we cannot see how many staff are scheduled in each break interval.

  9. All employees see entire team schedule

    This app would work really well as a way to share when employees are on vacation, out of office, etc. With Outlook this requires looking at everyone’s calendars individually, or trying to stack meetings on one group calendar and it doesn’t look very good! This platform offers the opportunity to see at a glance who is available/working on any given day or when they are out. This would be highly useful especially for our home office or traveling sales group to view from an app. Currently, the app only lets you see your own schedule or you can click on…

  10. Ability to create staffing templates that can dragged to each day

    Our front line departments have staffing schedules that are dependent on a business volume forecast. For example, at volume X, we may staff 4 people in a department with various shift lengths, and at Volume Y, we may staff 6 people with differing shift lengths. We need to be able to create 3-6 templates per department to reflect these volume based schedules and quickly and easily assign a template to each day and then fill the shifts.

  11. Allow request to take somebody’s shift.

    Sometimes your colleague is doing you a favor by giving you their shift. As such, you want to do the legwork by setting things up on StaffHub for them...except StaffHub only allows you to swap a shift or give one away but you cannot offer to take another’s shift...frustrating

  12. "View Holes"

    It would be nice to be able to easily view staffing holes. Establish an "hours of operation" and staff to fill, but if you missed a hole and have zero coverage, it would be nice to be able to see the hole through a generated report so you can adjust accordingly. We are using it at a 24/7 facility and have occasionally had holes in the schedule.

  13. Highlight the current day on the schedule

    Can you highlight the current day of the week on the schedule. It makes it quicker to locate the day of the week it is and the next day schedule at a glance.

  14. Ablility to see Breaks or Activities in weekly view

    It would be extremely helpful to my team to be able to see their activities laid out in the weekly view. If you could change the color of different activities and have it overlay their shift, it would be perfect.

  17. Favorite views

    Its a little annoying and very slow to have to change between 'Grouped' view in 'People View' and Non 'Grouped View' in 'Shifts View' if you have large rosters (+40). If you could create a simple favorite shortcut to a view combination it would increase productivity dramatically and simplify use for non-tech admins.

  18. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to swap entire schedules for realignment of personnel with recreating them

    There doesn't seem to be an easy way to swap entire schedules for realignment of personnel with recreating them under a dummy name and then deleting and reassigning. Example. persons A and B change positions requiring them to assume the other's schedule.

    Make it so that you keep the shift and change the person assigned to it

  20. continental-shift

    continental-shifts are common in my setting. We use a 4 day on (11.4) and three days off schedule and have two crews that rotate through the rotation. Would be nice to be able to schedule this once.
