After spending the last three months in preview, Microsoft has pulled back the covers and launched Microsoft StaffHub for Android, iOS and on the web. The service and app is aimed at providing a centralized place for managers and staff to handle schedules, send out information and connect with other workforce management tools that are in the market. With it being across multiple platforms and on mobile devices, Microsoft is aiming to have staff management be easier regardless of where you are – work, home or at play.
Scheduling can be done by managers and allows works to see who is working when and for how long. This is particularly important for businesses with shift workers. Managers can also enable the ability for workers to trade shifts with other employees should a personal conflict arise. This is all done within the app and can be pre-approved by the manager when the feature is enabled.
