We just got MS Staffhub implemented into our system, I tried to download the Windows 10 Mobile app and to my supprise, MS doesn't have an app for one of their own programs. Are you going to release an app for this on Windows 10\Windows 10 Mobile? I can ge

What level of deployments of WIndows Mobile are you seeing in your customers?
Once again, that is a companies nice way of saying we don't care about Windows 10 apps nor are we going to ever support or build anything. Message received.
At this time Windows Mobile is not in scope. We will continue to listen to customer feedback and reevaluate our priorities as we do for all feature requests.

The StaffHub app looks promising, but it seems to force us to create a new 365 Group when we create a StaffHub team.  We already have 365 Groups set-up, so don't need a new, separate 365 Group created, we just want to be able to create a StaffHub on an ex

We are evaluating several investments across the main feature areas (scheduling, communication, information sharing). What kind of capabilities do you feel would be of most value in the short to medium term (next 2-4 months or so)?

The app should have a configurable alert time - at the moment it's half an hour which doesn't help people who need to travel for more than half an hour to work :)
Set admins permission for group level, such that a group level admin cannot affect the Team level.

Save schedule templates at the group level.

We are trying to sign into Staffhub on the web site. We put in our Offie 365 email account and go to sign in, it sign's us in, refreshes, flashes and then says you have successfully signed out. Are other experiancing the similar issues?

Yes, that does make sense as to why we got blocked, but, what doesn't make sense is what is the difference in government access vs business access? So until a fix or upda... Read More

That is odd, because as of 2/3/17 we could sign into the MS Staffhub web link and have done so for the past 2-3 weeks.
We will take the feedback and work on a better experience to make it clear why you are getting signed out!!!
Yes, same thing. We currently do not have StaffHub set for Gov Cloud. Stay tuned as we are seeing many trials in the public sector space and will continue working hard to... Read More

If a user creates a StaffHub and he/she does not have access to create Groups, how can an admin then setup a Group for that particular StaffHub later if so requested?


Also can creation of StaffHub be restricted?

With StaffHub now being GA, I would have suspected a reporting tool of some sort be it in StaffHub Portal or connection to PowerBI. Is this coming soon?

Hi Scott - No timelines to promise yet, but feel free to add the suggestions in UserVoice and we'll update customers on the status there when it's supported: https://staffhub.uservoice.com/ Read More

Reports are definitely on our backlog, and a PowerBI connector may be the right way to go initially (TBD). Do you have any recommendations for top reports you'd suggest?

Will it be possible to set MAM-Rules for the StaffHub App like other Apps (Sharepoint, OneDrive) in Intune for Mobile Apps. It would be great to set an App-Pin with this rules.

@Adam Jung, can you help to answer this?
