 You may have received an email from your shift manager with a request to join your workforce and it's schedules on ShiftApp.

After creating your account, you'll be emailed a link to activate your account. Please click on this Activation Link to activate your account. 

If you're not already automatically connected to your workforce, or if you already have a ShiftApp account, then use the Job Invite Code from the invitation email in the add new job form.

Review the Schedule

Exactly how much information you, as an employee, get to see on the schedule view depends on the Workforce Settings that have been set by the schedule managers or Workforce Owner.

A typical schedule view might look something like the annotated screenshot above.

You'll see both confirmed shifts (to which the manager probably won't be making any more changes to) and shifts with a draft status which are still being planned.

Update your Availability

If your workforce is using the ShiftApp Availability feature then you can update your availability on the web schedule view or from the ShiftApp Mobile App.

You can register your availability in advance. Using the controls on the schedule, you can indicate yourself as available(green/free to work) or unavailable(red/busy).

Employees should discuss their general availability with the schedule managers and also about how they would like them to use the ShiftApp Availability feature.

Updating your availability on ShiftApp provides helpful information to your schedule managers when they are planning and allocating shifts.

Update your Shift Interest

If your workforce uses the Shift Interest feature, you might be able to indicate your specific interest for shifts you are not yet assigned to.

You can set your Shift Interest for an upcoming shift by clicking the Willing button in the shift details box.

Depending on the Workforce Settings your managers choose, you can also set your Shift Interest to Reluctant.

Update your Shift Agreements

If your Workforce uses the ShiftApp Shift Agreement feature, then you can respond to your assigned shifts.

You can indicate your Shift Agreement for an upcoming shift by clicking the accept button in the shift details box.

Many schedule managers like to see your Shift Agreement set to Accept as an acknowledgement that you've seen the schedule and are aware of the upcoming shift.

Depending on the Workforce Settings set by your schedule managers, you might also be able to set decline on an assigned shift. Please Note: Even if you've declined a shift, you are still required to work it - unless a schedule manager removes you from the shift.
