Microsoft launches StaffHub app for shift planning
If you work in shifts, I've got some good news for you: Microsoft has just launched a new beta app called StaffHub that will help make shift-scheduling a breeze. The application is part of the Office 365 suite and is available for both iOS and Android devices. Unfortunately, using StaffHub isn't as easy as downloading and installing the application: in order to have access to the app, the company that you work for must have at least an Office 365 Kiosk license.
As far as functionality goes, StaffHub offers a few features that are actually very handy. Although at a first glance it looks like a simple calendar, the app allows employees to easily swap shifts, create reminders, add warnings, etc. Furthermore, the application also embeds an instant communications tool. The shifts themselves will be shown on a week-by-week basis and the employees will be able to see who they'll be working with. As I previously stated, the application is still in a beta stage and if you're interested in using it, you will need to head over to the StaffHub official website and request a license from there.
