Pros: we can message the staff quickly like a text message. no other pros

Cons: can't see who likes your messages, can't see when someone has read a message you send them directly. Wish we could post shifts for only certain people to see (able to put them in groups). Wish we had a list every week of who switched shifts so it's easier to keep track, so we can follow up with the staff. We should have the option to change the staffs name, some of them are putting inappropriate names where it asks for the department, and we as admins can't change anything

Overall: being able to connect with staff

Hi Caitlyn,

Thanks for your feedback! We are happy to hear that Shyft makes it easy to connect with staff.

I've let our team know that there is interest in knowing who has read direct messages. I've also outlined features that help address your comments:

- To view who liked a post, swipe left and click `like'.

- Posting shifts to custom groups is available. First, create the group and add the team members. Next, follow the standard steps to post the shift. After the details are complete, post to 'My Groups and select the group you would like to post the shift to.

- Lists of who has switched shifts are available in our Manager Dashboard at https://manager.myshyft.com/login. An `export button is in the Calendar.

- Our Manager Dashboard allows you to adjust employee names. First, click on the `Team tab and select the person. Once you have changed their name or title, click `save changes.

We can be reached at Support@myshyft.com.

Thanks again!

Shyft saves us a ton of time and makes it a lot easier for associates to get their shifts covered.

Pros: It saves a lot of the hassle of shift swapping. Before we were having each associate call the store to request and confirm swaps. Now we can approve swaps whenever convenient.

Cons: It seems when we post general messages, it's always hit and miss whether the associates will see them or not.

Pros: I don't have to get shifts covered. My staff takes care of it all. All I have to do is approve or deny.

Cons: I'm an Admin and I can't delete any public posts. Sometimes my staff will argue about things through public chat. It would be nice if I could regulate the chat room.

Slightly complicated to start and then glitches make it a little irritating to use.

Pros: I like that posting and covering shifts are easy to do, its easy on the eyes and the rejection message is hilarious-"tough break"

Cons: The"inbox" should have a disabling function, as our store doesn't want the staff using that as a way to message about absences and lates. I don't like that when shifts are deleted, they stay on the feed and some shifts will post multiple times or when taken, it pops up several times on the feed

Overall: We streamlined shift swapping and made it easier to see who was switching and how often. The associates find it easy to get shifts covered without having to come in the store to call other associates from our phone list.

Pros: I love how the leadership team does not have to ask individuals if they can or cannot work a shift. Having the ability to swap shifts through the software is much easier.

Cons: I wish the software allows employee to "change their mind" about covering a shift. When employees can no longer cover a shift. A leader has to deny and repost a shift.

Pros: Ease of getting a shift coverage, managers being able to see associates schedule when they post it on the app, and an availability update sent to the entire team.

Cons: There's a lot of glitches within the app. When a shift needing coverage gets posted and sends a notification on my phone, it sends a different date to what is actually posted. I have to go in the app to see the actual date posted. This trend has been happening with all associates in the store.
