Fed up of having to go hunting for Shiftie every time you want to view your shifts? Not a problem; simply save it as an app to access at any time

Shiftie is a Progressive Web App (PWA for short). PWAs function a lot like traditional apps but save you the hassle of having to physically install yet another program on your device. Instead of giving you a slimmed-down version of the desktop software that only works if you have a brand new phone and download every single update, our PWA lets you access Shiftie from any device

1. Log in to your Shiftie account using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

2. In the right-hand side of the address bar you should see an icon that says 'Install' when hovered over. In Chrome this will look like a computer screen with a down arrow, in Edge it will look like three blocks with a plus icon. Click the icon and confirm that you want to install.

3. Shiftie will open in a dedicated app view with the option to also save it to your desktop. Click this to confirm.

4. When you next want to use Shiftie you'll be able to open it in app view directly from the shortcut. You can also open it in browser and click the arrow-in-a-box icon to open the app view.
