Dear all,

 

We have an excel tool to manage our shifts and we would like to import it into Shift.

The import Sample file provided by Shift is limited to several fields only namely:

- Name

- Work Email (Required)

- Group

- Shift Start Date

- Shift Start Time

- Shift End Time

- Notes

- Unpaid Break (minutes)

 

When creating manually a shift , the following options are also available:

- color of the shift

- label (that is shown instead of the time) 

Is there a way to import them as well?

 

Many thanks for your answers,

Nick

Hi @NickDoha,

Not currently. They have to be set after

There is a uservoice open for exactly this here

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40283254-shifts-app-to-include...

Would recommend you vote on it to push it up the agenda. I have voted on it too

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
