Teams is a new way for you to manage your roster and an integral part of our Organization Structure set of features. With Teams, you'll be able to create multiple teams and assign agents and managers to them. Managers will be responsible for receiving and acting on agents' requests related to Time Off, Shift Trades (coming soon!), or any other requests that might come their way.
Note: to access and modify Teams, you will need to have the Schedule - Manager (Full Access) permission enabled in tymeshift, check here how to do it.
