Overview

OpenShifts™ appear when your employer creates shifts that you and your coworkers can pick up yourselves.

You can also take OpenShifts from your computer or iPhone/iPad.

Things to know before you begin

  • You may be notified for different OpenShifts than your coworkers. Managers have the option to notify all qualified and available users about an OpenShift or select specific qualified and available employees.
  • Open Shifts are available on a first come, first serve basis. The first user to pick up the shift gets it.
  • An OpenShift is up for grabs for all qualified and available users until you tap “Take” on the confirmation screen.
  • The Android app displays OpenShifts for up to 1 year. To view additional OpenShifts, use your computer.

Things to do before you begin

Make sure the When I Work Scheduling app is installed on your Android phone.
