Teams: What is the Shifts app?

Shifts is a scheduling management tool application within Microsoft Teams. A Team/Group site owner can use Shifts to create, update and manage your team’s schedules. It is available in all versions of Teams (desktop, Office 365 or mobile app).

With Shifts, management can add notes to share important news about a specific day or time, block out scheduled times for training, meetings for individuals or the group, etc. and add Open Shifts that anyone can request to work.

Team members can request time off, swap or offer shifts with other team members and/or sign up for offered shifts. Management will approve or deny any requests within Shifts and the Shifts calendar will automatically update accordingly.
