Situations will arise where you are scheduled to work a shift, but discover that you are no longer able to. In this scenario, two conditions need to be met to allow you to find a colleague to swap a shift with. Firstly, the company must have a policy to allow shift swaps. Secondly, your employer must have granted you permission to perform a shift swap. When both of these conditions are met, a shift swap can be performed from a Mobile App (the majority of users) or from the Responsive Desktop via a web browser. The following process relates to performing a shift swap from the Mobile App.
