Employee Guide | Confirming Your Roster Shifts


1) What is a shift swap & why are they important?

The Shift Swap feature is available on certain accounts and allows users to find a replacement for their own shifts. This feature might be useful to organisations and their employees; as it allows users to find a replacement to a rostered shift that they might not be able to work.



Depending on your organisations rules, you request for a shift swap (or your acceptance of a shift swap) may need to be approved by your immediate leader / employer.

Please contact your immediate leader / employer to determine your organisations configuration (and policy) regarding requesting for (or) accepting of rostered shift swaps.

Your employer / organisation will need this feature enabled for you to be permitted to use the rostered shift swap feature.
