Microsoft StaffHub is a new cloud-based platform for Office 365 subscribers, coming with a web app for managers and mobile app for employees. Microsoft StaffHub is designed for staff workers whose job requires them to be on their feet or on the go. It helps managers to schedule the tasks for their employees, approve requests and communicate important information with the team members. On the other side, it allows employees to access their schedules, swap shits, request time off, find information and catch up with the team.
Workers in retail stores, hotels, restaurants, manufacturing and other service-related industries can now easily get and share important information, without the need to rely on paper schedules, notices, hurried phone calls or text messages.
Features of Microsoft StaffHub:
Microsoft StaffHub enables managers to:
- Quickly create, update and manage shift schedules for their team, streamlining what has been a labor-intensive process.
