We are thrilled to announce the release of a new feature for ShiftApp: Shift Interest. This exciting addition allows employees to express their interest in shifts they have yet to be assigned to, indicating whether they are "Willing" or "Reluctant" to take on those shifts.
To use Shift Interest, your Workforce Settings must grant employees visibility into all available shifts. This feature is applicable only before an employee has been assigned to a shift. The previous pre-acceptance and pre-decline functionality has been completely removed from the system.
Once an employee has been assigned to a shift, they can still confirm their Shift Agreement by either accepting or declining the assigned shift, just as before.
In addition to the introduction of Shift Interest, we have addressed a range of minor bugs and made significant improvements to the overall performance of the system. Numerous screens and pages have also undergone a design update for a more enhanced user experience.
To complement the new Shift Interest functionality, we have released an updated version of the ShiftApp for both Android and iOS. Make sure to keep an eye out for the new app version 62.0.0.
Furthermore, we have updated several Short Video lessons to provide detailed information on how to utilize Shift Interest.

We have recently updated the styles used on our pages and screens. These changes are designed to improve the overall user experience and make the platform more modern and user-friendly.
If you notice any pages, screens, or dialogs that do not look quite right, please take a screenshot and send it to us. This will help us to identify and fix any problems as quickly as possible.
We appreciate your feedback as we continue to improve our shift scheduling software.
The Show More Calendar button, which appears at the bottom of the schedule "Month" view, has been updated to now load the entire following month rather than just an additional week.
This change is intended to be particularly helpful for managers who often plan shifts for multiple weeks or months in advance using the Month view.
The new ShiftApp.com is now live and available for any type of business to manage their employee scheduling.

We’re calling this a “beta” launch - just in case there are any kinks to be ironed out, but we’re not expecting any problems or issues.
