How do I reassign a shift? (Desktop)

Modified on Fri, 17 Nov 2023 at 05:24 PM

You'll be pleased to hear that assigning a shift isn't final; you can still reassign or unassign it at any point until the existing assignee has clocked in or the shift has begun.

  1. Head over to the scheduling page by clicking on the 'Schedule' calendar icon on the left of your screen. You'll default to the week view, but you can change view if you want to.
  2. Find the shift that you want to edit, using the calendar picker at the top of the screen if the right day isn't displaying, and click on it. Choose 'Reassign Shift' from the dropdown.
  3. You'll be shown a list of other employees who are available to work the shift. The list will default to being ordered by remaining availability, based on the employee's scheduled weekly hours. Select an employee and click the 'Assign Shift' button at the bottom of the screen. 
  4. The shift will update to be assigned to the new employee.
