The objective of this tutorial is to help you understand how to request for an open shift from your Android device.


Access from your: Android Device
Applies to: Employees

After your management publishes an open shift, employee(s) who are eligible to pick up and work that open shift will be notified via email, SMS or push notification according to the settings defined by the management.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. Open shifts are created by your manager. If created then only you will receive notification to fill it up.

  2. Open Shifts are created for a single position, you cannot request for an open shift from another position.

  3. Once you request for an open shift, it’s your management decision to approve or reject it.

  4. You will receive notifications via email/SMS/Push as well as under the Dashboard Notification Panel after your management publishes an open shift.

Note: Now, it’s your management decision to approve or reject your request if they have disabled auto-approve settings.
Once the staff request is approved, you will receive a notification and will be assigned on that shift by filling the slot hence it is your responsibility to work for that shift.
