From your , ,

Applies to , ,

Overview

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.

Considerations

Shift Bidding is available on Pro level plans. The account holder can upgrade to Pro on the Account & Billing page via the web.

Require pick up approval

Require pick up approval on OpenShifts to allow users to bid on the shift. Shifts requiring pick up approval are marked with a pick up approval icon in the scheduler.

 

 

You can also create OpenShifts requiring pick up approval from your Android device or iOS device.
