Microsoft StaffHub is a cloud-based platform designed for employees whose job requires them to be on their feet or on the go. Examples include baristas, hair stylists, waiters, bus drivers, and so on. Microsoft StaffHub helps you create and manage work shifts, share files, and communicate important information with team members. It's available to Office 365 for business subscribers and comes with a web app for managers and mobile app for employees. The mobile app supports both iOS and Android.
How it works
Managers use the Microsoft StaffHub web app to create schedules, manage requests for shift swaps or time off, and share information with the team.
Employees use the mobile app to view their shifts, submit shift and time-off requests, and communicate with the team.
How to get started (manager)
Make sure you have an Office 365 for business license.
Send an invitation to each employee so they can download the app and see their schedules. Employees will need their work account to sign in to the app.
Frequently asked questions
Some of my employees are vendors and don't have Office 365 accounts. Can I schedule them through Microsoft StaffHub?
No. Everyone has to have an Office 365 account with your company in order to use the apps.
Does Microsoft StaffHub use Office 365 Groups?
Yes. Every time a manager creates a team in StaffHub, the app auto-provisions an Office 365 group. It adds all of the team members to the group. By default Office 365 Groups is enabled for a tenant, and everyone has permissions to create groups. If you've changed these defaults for your organization, use PowerShell to re-enable Groups, and give managers permissions to "send as" the Office 365 group.
