Modified on Fri, 22 Dec, 2023 at 12:54 PM

Happy to work, but less than delighted with the shifts you've been assigned? Not a problem! Swap them with your colleagues until you've all got shifts that work for you.

  1. Head over to the schedule page by clicking on the 'Schedule' calendar icon on the left of your screen. 
  2. Find the shift you want to swap and click on it.
    1. You'll be able to change the date range you're viewing by using the calendar icon and arrows in the top right of the screen 
  3. Select 'Swap Shift' from the menu
  4. Choose the team member you want to swap your shift with and select one of their shifts to receive in return. 
  5. If relevant, add a message to the team member.
  6. Once you're happy, click Offer Shift. The team member you've selected will receive a notification with the details of the offer and they'll be able to choose whether to accept it or not. 
  7. If your company is set up so that shift swaps have to be approved by a manager then the swap request will next be sent to your line managers. Once everyone involved has responded to the shift you'll receive a notification letting you know whether it's going ahead or not.
