Shift Bidding, also called OpenShift Requests, is an option within an OpenShift that allows employees to express interest in the shift. You can then view who has requested to pick up the OpenShift and select and approve an employee to work the shift.
The Shift Bidding option helps you moderate the OpenShift pick up process to get the most qualified employees into the right shifts.
Shift Bidding is available on Pro level plans. The account holder can upgrade to Pro on the Account & Billing page via the web.
