As an initiator, you can remove shift release request if you no longer wish to release the shift.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. Being a Manager/Supervisor, you will not receive email/SMS notification, if you have assigned a 'Scheduler' permission to that position from which employee is requesting shift release

  2. You all can view and manage shift release requests under 'Managing Shift Trade' widget on the Dashboard Notification Panel as well as via email/SMS as per your defined settings under the settings module.

  3. Managers need to click on each individual request to see the details of each.

  4. The Humanity conflict checker is also featured in the sidebar, letting managers know for which potential cover a conflict would be created if they were to assign the shift to that person. If no conflict is present, there will be a check mark next to that employee’s name.
