Publishing (First-come, first-serve)

Created by Aimee Bridges, Modified on Thu, 08 Sep 2022 at 05:03 PM by Amanda Schmalbach

Publishing allows you to make a shift available to some or all of your staff on a first-come, first-serve basis.

It can be useful when you have a large number of slots to fill or need to fill a shift on short notice.

As an example, you can publish 3 shifts to 10 different workers. The job will disappear as soon as 3 people accept the open shifts, so there is no risk of booking an extra worker.

Step by Step Instructions

From the calendar view, select the event of your choosing. From there, locate the shift that you would like to publish.

Click the Publish button within the selected shift, then choose the workers that you would like to receive the job request. You can select as many or as few as you'd like.

When you've chosen your staff, select the Publish Shift toggle to make the shift eligible for staff. You can optionally select the Enable Notifications toggle if you'd like to send a notification to staff.

Because publishing works on a first-come, first-served basis, the staff who respond first will get the available shifts. Once all of the shift slots have been filled, remaining staff will no longer be able to accept the shift.
