Shift supports all of the web apps you know and love! 💚 You can be logged into multiple different accounts of that app simultaneously. Multiple Trello accounts? Just add another instance of the app to your setup and log into your other account. Adding web apps is easy! Follow our simple steps below.


Paid users can add an unlimited number of apps to their setups, while free users can add one app to their setup. More about plans here.


Check the full list of supported apps here.

How do I ensure my settings are set so that I'm receiving notifications?

You'll get badges and desktop notifications with sounds for your added apps in Shift. Make sure to turn off the auto-hibernate setting for the apps you always want to get notifications for (right-click on the app in the sidebar and select "Auto-Hibernate Off"). This will ensure these apps always send notifications to you for new messages. We recommend turning off auto-hibernate for any messaging-style apps such as Slack, Facebook Messenger, etc.


If you ever refresh Shift (Command/Control Shift R), reset your application data, or sign in and out of Shift, you'll need to click into your messaging apps once to wake them up even if you have auto-hibernate turned OFF.
