Shift Basic (Free)

With Shift Basic, you can add up to two email accounts and one application to your Shift setup. Never miss a meeting or an alert with the help of desktop notifications. 


Shift Advanced (Paid)

Shift Advanced allows you to make the most of all of the features Shift has to offer. Add any Chrome Extension, or Google Services, add an unlimited number of apps (with over 1500+ apps to choose from), and manage unlimited email accounts right from inside of Shift. Shift Advanced also provides you with access to additional power tools:


  • Use Epic Search to quickly find what you want, when you want it.
  • Use Mute Notifications to automatically turn off desktop popups and sounds for new messages during meetings, or cut out distractions for a set time when you need to get some deep work done!
  • Use Unified Calendar to have a quick look at all of your Calendars in one place in Shift.


Shift for Teams (Paid)

Shift for Teams gives you the advantage of being able to easily manage licenses for your team, with the added convenience of Unified Billing. Each Shift Team will have a Team Admin, who can manage the team's subscriptions from right inside of Shift through the Team dashboard. Team members would have all the same access as Shift Advanced users and have the ability to add the tools needed to their own setups. Your team members' setups are their own and independent from the Team Admin and from other Members.


Shift for Teams has the most features out of all three of our options and is a great solution for teams with multiple accounts and applications. From team sizes of 2 to 200, Shift for Teams is the solution to help keep you better organized and focused! If you ever need to reach out to support, your ticket will also be prioritized above non-team users to help ensure you get the fastest available service!
