When this will happen

We expect this rollout to begin in late March and expect the rollout to be complete by early April.

How this will affect your organization

With the connector, Blue Yonder is the rules engine and Teams becomes the system of engagement where schedules are managed in compliance with the rules set in Blue Yonder. Use the shifts connector wizard in the Microsoft 365 admin center to quickly and easily set up a connection. The wizard configures the connector based on the settings provided by the admin and creates the connection. PowerShell scripts can also be used to setup the shifts connector instance.

After the connection has been set up, frontline workers in organizations can seamlessly view and manage their schedules published in Blue Yonder from within Shifts.
