Shift Pickup Pro

Shifts can be marked as requested for pickup, and other employees can pick them up.

How It Works

  • A shift is marked as requested for pickup (by the manager or by the shift employee).
  • Other employee can pick up the shift.
  • The shift is changed to the new employee.

Configuration

By default this option is not active, there are a few settings that affect this functionality.

  • Allow employees to request pickup

    Go to Administration > Calendars, choose a calendar, then click Permissions.

    Set the Create Pickup Request For Own Shifts option for Employee on.

    After that when employees go to Schedule, click on a shift, and they will see a new option: Request Pickup

    After a pickup is requested, the shift is marked with the pickup request label.

  • Allow employees to pick up others shifts

    Go to Administration > Calendars, choose a calendar, then click Permissions.

    Set the Pick Up Others Shifts option for Employee on.

    So that when employees go to Schedule, and click on others shifts requested for pickup, they will see a new option: Pick Up. Please note that a shift can be picked up only when it has a pickup request.

    After other employee picked up the shift, it is now removed from the original employee and assigned to the new one.

  • Allow employees to cancel their pickup requests

    Your employees may change their mind and no longer want their shifts to be picked up. So it make sense to allow them to cancel their pickup requests.

    Go to Administration > Calendars, choose a calendar, then click Permissions.

    Set the Cancel Pickup Request For Own Shifts option for Employee on.

Notifications

This Shifts Pickup module adds a few more notifications to the system, each configured per calendar.

Go to Administration > Calendars, choose a calendar, then click Notifications.

  • Pickup Request (Manager)
  • Pickup Request (Employee)
  • Pickup Request (Other Employees)
  • Pickup Request Cancelled (Manager)
