This article covers the main settings to enable or disable Shift Swaps & Open Shifts and their cut-off timeframes. To learn about what Shift Swaps & Open Shifts are and how they work, click here.
- Go to the Settings tab and select Roster from the dropdown.
- Click on the Shift Swaps & Open Shifts tab.
- You can tick/untick the Shift Swaps Active and Open Shifts Active checkboxes to activate/deactivate each feature.
When you deactivate Shift Swaps, the option is not visible to any staff.
When you deactivate Open Shifts, you will be able to publish rosters with unfilled shifts but RosterElf will not communicate that shift to your staff. You will need to select someone and republish the roster before the shift starts in order to fill the shift.
- You can change the cut-off time for each feature using the dropdown.
Shift Swaps: Staff will be unable to swap shifts once they fall within the selected number of hours before the start time of that shift.
Open Shifts: Managers will be unable to publish an Open Shift within the selected number of hours before the start time of that shift.
