Open Shifts appear when your Manager is requesting for you and your coworkers to pick up shifts yourselves. Open Shifts are on a first come, first serve basis. The first employee to pick up the shift gets it.

You can also take OpenShifts from iPhone/iPad and Android.

Things to do before you begin

  • Open Shifts are on a first come, first serve basis. The first person to pick up the shift gets it.
  • An OpenShift is up for grabs for all qualified and available employees until you tap “Take” on the confirmation screen.
  • Different OpenShifts may show up for different Users. Managers have the option to offer the shift to all qualified and available Users OR specifically select users they want to offer the shift to.
  • The When I Work web app displays up to 60 OpenShifts.

Take an OpenShift

You can pick up Open Shifts from the Dashboard or from your My Schedule page. From either of those pages, scroll down to the Available Open Shifts section.

Hover over a shift you’d like to pick up. Click Take Shift if you’d like to accept the shift. Click Info for more information about the shift.

Before you can officially take the shift, you must confirm by clicking Take Shift from within the pop up. You will be immediately responsible for the shift, and your managers will be notified.
