Learn more about Microsoft Shift

Microsoft Shift is the schedule management tool for first line workers and is exclusively available in Teams. Whether you’re putting together a schedule for your team or swapping shifts with a teammate, it has you covered. This app helps you create, update, and manage schedules for your team. Shifts can be modified when necessary, allowing the entire team to view changes in real time. Microsoft Shift tools enable simplified management of team members and their associated Shifts.

The feature of "Open Shifts" has the advantage not only of creating an unassigned task, which makes it possible to notify the existence of this task, but also to allow a coworker to make the request to assign the task. Shifts change requests can be used to swap the worker assigned to a task. Thus, an employee can lighten the workload of one of his colleagues.

Ultimately, Microsoft Shift is the simplified schedule management tool linked to your Office 365 suite for efficient and collaborative work.
