Understanding Microsoft Shifts Settings: A User’s Perspective

Microsoft Shifts is evolving, offering frontline managers more control over team-level capabilities. The latest updates aim to improve the end-user experience for both managers and workers.

What’s New in Microsoft Shifts?

Key updates have been made to the Shifts settings page, focusing on open shifts and frontline managers’ control.

Open Shifts

Previously, when the Open Shifts setting was off, managers could create but not publish open shifts. They could also view open and assigned shifts on their team’s schedule, including when workers are scheduled for time off.

With the new update, when the setting is turned off, managers can no longer create open shifts. This change gives managers more control over shift scheduling and improves the overall user experience.

“Frontline managers have gained greater control, on a team-level, over the capabilities offered in Microsoft Shifts.”

Why is this Important?

These updates are crucial as they allow for a more streamlined and efficient scheduling process. Managers now have a greater level of control over shift scheduling, which can lead to increased productivity and better team management.
