How Trades Work
If Shift Trades are enabled, employees can submit a shift into the trade pool by pressing the ‘give up’ link on a shift. Once in the trade pool, the shift can be requested by qualified employees from the pool.
If the trade is approved by a supervisor, the employee will get notified via email or text message and will be added to the schedule.
Shift Trades Save Time
Allowing employees to trade shifts saves management from the effort of manually finding employees to fill vacant shifts. Only the shifts that a worker is qualified for are presented for pick-up and the process always requires final approval from the manager.
