How to view employee availability in Shifts?

Leroy Conway III (lconway) 0 Reputation points


We're looking at transitioning from When to Work to Microsoft Shifts for employee scheduling. One feature in When to Work that is helpful is that our staff can set their preferred availability as to when they can/cannot work. Is there an option in Shifts that allows employees to set their availability?
