The objective of this tutorial is to help you understand how you will request just a part of an Open Shift.
Access from your: Android mobile device
Applies to: Managers, Supervisors, Scheduler, and Employees
Having the option to request just a part of the whole shift gives you more flexibility when you pick what shift you can work.
Things to know before you begin:
Open Shifts are created by your manager, when created you will receive a notification to fill it up.
Your Humanity Scheduling Android app needs to be on version 3.8. or newer.
Partial Open Shift Pick-Up functionality needs to be turned on by your Admin or Manager.
The minimum partial shift duration, that can be requested, is defined by your Admin or Manager.
Requesting to Pick Up a part of Open Shift
Step 1: Click on the "Pick Up" tab from the top panel while in the ShiftPlanning part of the Android app > Click on the Open Shift that you are interested in to see shift details, as shown on Image 1.
Step 2: Click on the Partial Shift Request button at the bottom of the screen to request just a part of that Open shut, as shown in Image 2.
Step 3: Click on the tab "I can start the shift" to pick a time from the beginning or edit time from the end of that shift by clicking on the tab "I can finish the shift", as shown in Image 2.
Step 4: Choose the time when you want your partial shit to end as shown > Click on the button "Done" to confirm the time you have picked, as shown in Image 4.
Note: The minimum partial shift duration, that can be requested, can't be shorter than what is set on the company level.
Step 5 (Optional): You can leave a note by clicking on the Note button > Typing in the text to provide additional context to accompany your partial shit request > Click on the green button "Done" to submit the note, as shown in Image 5.
Step 6: To submit your Partial Open Shift Request just click on the big green button on the bottom of the screen, as shown in Image 6.
Step 6: Click on the Proceed button to submit your Partial Open Shift Request and your partial shift request will be automatically approved (if your company doesn't have the manual partial request approval setting turned ON), as shown in Image 7.
Note 1: Submitted partial request can be in the pending status (if in your company manager manually approves requests). While it is in pending status, you can cancel the request or edit it by changing the time length or editing the note, as shown in Image 8.
Note 2: You can submit only one request per Open Shift, no matter if it's a partial or full request.
Note 3: In case your partial request gets rejected (if in your company manager manually approves requests) and that Open Shift is still not staffed yet, it is possible to choose a different time interval than the one for which was rejected and submit another request.
