🎯 For employees.

As an Admin or Schedule manager, find out How to process Shift approval requests.

  • Please note that the screenshots may look slightly different between Android and iOS, but the process remains similar.

When you select one of your future shifts you’ll see the option to Swap, Hand over, or Sell the shift on an iOS device or under the + icon on Android.

  • A Swap request allows you to exchange shifts with a colleague. They'll get your shift, you'll get their shift. Perfect for swapping an early start for your colleague's late one.

  • A Hand over request allows you to give the shift directly to a colleague without replacing it. Use this when you have a specific person in mind to replace you when you can't make it to work.

  • Use Sell to make the shift available for your colleagues to request. It's a convenient way to find a replacement when you can't work a shift.

Please note:

The shift will remain yours in all three scenarios until a colleague accepts your request and a manager approves it.

Shifts with a request that is awaiting approval will display a pending icon. You can always cancel the exchange before the other party acts on it or a manager approves it.
