Shifts is a schedule management application in Microsoft Teams that helps you create, update, and manage schedules for your team. Shifts is enabled by default for all Teams users in your organization. You can add Shifts app to your Teams menu by clicking on the ellipses (…) and select Shifts from the app list.

You can either create a schedule from scratch (create for yourself or on behalf of your team members) or import an existing one from Excel. In terms of permission, you need to be an Owner of the team to create the schedule. The schedules will not be visible to your team members until you publish it by clicking “Share with team” button.
