Hello Shiftapp Community,

We're thrilled to announce that Shiftapp has received a major overhaul under the hood! Over the past few months, we've worked tirelessly to modernise, update, and upgrade the code and infrastructure powering Shiftapp. And now, the results are in: Shiftapp is running faster than ever before!

No matter the size of your workforce, from a lean team of 10 to a bustling group of 500 or more, these upgrades will help you create, update, and maintain your work schedules more quickly and efficiently than ever before. With these improvements, Shiftapp is better equipped to handle even the most complex scheduling needs, so you can spend less time building schedules and more time focusing on what matters most: your business and your team.

Here's a sneak peek at what's new:

  • Improved page load times: Spend less time waiting for your schedules to load and more time managing them.
  • Faster data processing: Create, update, and maintain your schedules in record time.
  • Enhanced user interface: Navigate Shiftapp more smoothly and intuitively than ever before.

We're confident that these upgrades will make a big difference in how you experience Shiftapp, and we can't wait for you to try them out. As always, your feedback is essential to us, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

From all of us at Shiftapp, thank you for choosing us as your go-to schedule management solution. We're committed to providing you with the best possible experience, and we're excited to continue improving and expanding Shiftapp to meet your evolving needs.

Happy scheduling!

Best regards, Jason.

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.

For managers:

Assigning Employees: ShiftApp Help Center - Assigning Employees

Advanced Workforce Settings: ShiftApp Help Center - Advanced Workforce Settings

For employees:

Employee Introduction: ShiftApp Help Center - Employee Introduction

Employee Shift Interest: ShiftApp Help Center - Employee Shift Interest

We sincerely hope that this new feature proves valuable to you. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

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.
