Microsoft is trying to please more of its customers with a new app. StaffHub app is created for deskless workers. This is a new Office 365 service that was launched Thursday. This app now lets managers set schedules for worked that aren’t at their computers all day like service technicians and retail employees.
With the help of StaffHub app managers have an easier time scheduling for their workers. They can also talk and swap shifts with the help of StaffHub. This is another attempt by Microsoft to expand its Office 365 service.
Microsoft has created the StaffHub app in order to get the attention of workers who don’t spend all of their time editing Word documents or sitting at their computers writing emails. The company wanted to make an app that could help deskless workers. This can really help managers organize the schedule of those who don’t spend their time at the desk all day.
With the help of this app, the managers can stay in touch with their employees while there are organize the schedule or swapping shifts. After the shifts are scheduled for every employee with an assigned color they can be sent to the employees on their StaffHub app.
This app also helps employees. If one of them wants to swap shifts with another the request is sent to the other employee and then to the manager for approval. This allows employees to communicate with each other and change shifts without having to call one another and then the manager for approval. StaffHub app does all the work for them.
Another great thing about StaffHub is that managers can distribute and share links or files to all of the employees. This way employees can have all of the important resources in one app. They won’t have to search for hours for an email that was sent 3 weeks ago in order to find a file sent by their manager.
The StaffHub app is a great step for Microsoft because it is going to help people work efficiently while staying in touch with each other. Let’s hope that people start using this app and that they find it useful.
