Sometimes it can be necessary to get rid of a shift when other plans get in the way.
In Workfeed you have multiple options to do so.
Sell your shift
Transfer your shift to a colleague
Swap one shift for another with a colleague
Let's go over them one by one.
How to sell a shift in Workfeed
First start by clicking the shift you want to get rid of. In the detail-view of the shift, you'll see a button saying "Give shift away".
Now you'll see a blue button on top of the screen and a list of your colleagues underneath. In case we wanted to swap the shift or transfer it to a colleague we would click on the colleague. But in this case we just want to make the shift available for all our colleagues to bid on, so we click the blue button saying "Put up for sale".
Now your colleagues will be notified of the available shift and they can choose to to bid on it. You need to be aware that they can only place a bid if they're not already working on the same day as your shift. Furthermore, they need to have the same role as the shift. Depending on your company settings a manager might have to approve the swap before it's confirmed.
How to transfer a shift to a colleague
In case you already agreed with a colleague that they'll take your shift you're able to transfer it to them. To do this start by clicking the shift you want to transfer and click "Give shift away".
Now you'll see a list of all your colleagues. Just click the name of the colleague you want to transfer the shift to.
Now you simply click the "Handover shift" button. Then your colleague will be notified of the handover and he'll have to approve it from his side before the change is done. In some cases, this handover might also have to be approved by a manager.
How to swap shift for shift with a colleague
In case you already agreed with a colleague that they'll take your shift and you take one of their's you're able to swap the ownership of the shifts inside Workfeed. To do this start by clicking the shift you want to transfer and click "Give shift away".
Now you'll see a list of all your colleagues. Just click the name of the colleague you want to swap shifts with.
Now you'll see a list of the colleague's shifts. Simply click the shift you want to swap with and confirm the swap. Remember this change must be approved by your colleague. Depending on your company settings a manager might also have to approve the swap.
Why am I not able to see my colleague's shift under available shifts?
This is either because you don't have the same role as the shift or because you're already working on the same day. Roles are assigned by your manager. Is it neither of those things that's the issue try and make sure you look at available shifts for the right period.
Will I get notified once a shift swap is approved?
Yes, Workfeed will send you a notification every time there are updates to your shifts.
Can I transfer a part of my shift to a colleague?
At the moment we don't have a dedicated feature for this. In case you want to arrange something like this we advise you to run it by your manager.
