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 + button on Androids.
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 put the shift up for sale, giving your colleagues the chance to request it themselves. If you have a lot of peers in your role then this option will take the hassle out of finding a replacement when you can't work this shift.
⬆️ The screenshots are from the iOS version of the app. While the Android version may have slight design differences, the functionality remains the same.
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.
