When you select one of your future shifts you’ll see the option to Swap, Handover, 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 Handover 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 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. To cancel the request, select the shift and tap Cancel.
