                I think having a separate app is necessary for some frontline workers. In some scenarios, all the supervisor needs them to be able to access is what's in StaffHub.

                I do think, however, the two should be mirrored so that if a team utilizes teams, they can see everything they need to in StaffHub as well:
                - If a team utilizes StaffHub, perhaps make the messages the #general channel of a Team and vice versa. Direct messages should be delivered via Teams DM which StaffHub could utilize in the underlying framework (easier said than done, I understand, just thinking/dreaming). Lastly, notes could be echoed in Teams as well.
                - Place the StaffHub files in a folder (maybe called "StaffHub") under the Team OneDrive site.
                - To-Do's could be tough, but I think instead of integrating that with Teams or Planner, it should be integrated with Microsoft To-Do where any task assigned to you shows up in your To-Do.
                - Scheduling could be a Team's app that managers can leverage to schedule shifts, approve requests and make notes/announcements for the day. It could also be the place that team members go to view their schedules, request a swap or time off or see notes for the day.

                This allows a team to use one app or the other or both instead of splitting the purposes and scope between the two. You want them to be independent apps, but you also don't want them redundant, and therefore confusing and where things are now, it does feel that way.
