Teams shifts holiday entitlement functionality with Sharepoint lists

Hi all,


I like the features of Teams Shifts however it is missing the functionality to track annual leave for individuals for me. I want to create a flow but before i delve into the details I wanted to sense check the idea as I am new to automate and done know what the limits are (I've learnt JS and python so hoping the size of the project is not too much of a reach).


High-level concept


1. In Teams Shifts create a time off categories 

2. In lists have user ID (MS email needs to be the same as the shifts trigger ID), Hours_Annual_leave

3. I need to look at the user flow for deleting leave 


-Trigger > update/create, delete time off request

-Action > get user ID 

-Var reqHours> get hours requested from shift request

-Var Allowance > sharpoint list user_ID.Hours_Annual_leave

-Var decrementAllowance > Allowance -reqHours

-Var incrementAllowance > Allowance -reqHours

- Switch/conditional > /*to determine the type of time off request*/ 

Case ADD :

-condition> if (decrimentAllowance>=0) post adaptive card for the user to continue and show remaining hours else reject request and post message with reason. 

-Response from adaptive card

- Switch > 

Case CONTINUE: Update users holiday allowance in Sharepoint lists & notify mgr ready to approve (if rejected by mgr it will need another flow to update the Sharepoint list with old values) 

Case CANCEL: Reject leave and post message of confirmation.


-Action update list 

-Action delete a Time Off instance

-Action post confirmation to user 

-Action notify mgr
