You can request a shift swap via the employee mobile app and the online web app.

To request a swap on the mobile app simply go to 'My Shifts', click on the shift you want to swap, and press 'Request Swap'.

Any team mates who are not working at that time will get sent a notification letting them know a swap is up for grabs. They can then express interest or reject the request. Your manager will also get alerted and will action accordingly.

You can see the status of your swap requests at any time by heading to the Swaps screen in the Rotageek app. Here you can see approved, pending and rejected swaps.
