Introducing Shift Reviews
See what your fellow Shift Bosses are saying about Shift and check out our new Reviews page:



Resolved: Shift keeps the .download extension
After downloading a file in app, Shift will keep the .download extension. This has been resolved to ensure that the .download extension is removed after the file is downloaded.


Resolved: Incorrect unread badge for Slack
Now, you’ll be able to know when you have unread messages in Slack and reply to them at your convenience.

Whether you’ve opted for the lighter side things, or chosen to go dark, Shift will now remember your theme settings even after you quit and reopen Shift. 


Resolved: Blinking cursor disappears over input fields in Shift
When typing in input fields inside Shift, the blinking cursor disappears. This has been resolved to ensure that this no longer occurs.  


Resolved: Outlook reload issue
When composing emails in Outlook, Shift will reload the interface causing the email to be lost. This bug has been fixed to ensure that Outlook does not reload in this way.   


Resolved: Outlook account appears as undefined if typo is made during the onboarding flow
If a customer makes an error typing in their Outlook email during the onboarding flow of Shift, Shift will register the email as “undefined.” This has been resolved to ensure that Shift will register the Outlook account regardless of typos.


Resolved: Zoom superimposes text in meeting invite
As seen below, Zoom overlays text in a meeting invite in Shift. This has been resolved to prevent this from occurring in Shift. 


Resolved: Incorrect mailbox selection during setup causes Shift to become unresponsive
Choosing the wrong type of mailbox during the Shift set up process will force an error in Shift and cause the app to become unresponsive. Now, if a mistake is made during the primary account set up process, the customer may go back and correct the error.

Resolved: Spotify stops playing music
We automatically set all apps to auto-hibernate in order to save the processing power of your computer. However, when Spotify is connected to Shift and set to auto-hibernate, the app will stop playing music when Spotify is forced into hibernation mode. This has been corrected to ensure that Spotify keeps playing after the app is hibernated.


Resolved: “Enable playback of protected content" Spotify error
Resolved to allow Shift users to access Spotify as intended.
