Take Shift : Partial Shift
TAKE SHIFT is a response to an OPEN SHIFT. One selects the OPEN SHIFT and clicks on TAKE SHIFT to communicate to the scheduler that they are available and would like to be awarded the shift.
In this example, we are going to demonstrate how to award a “Partial Shift” … which is different then awarding the “Whole Shift” (as posted).
1. Review the comment submitted by the individual. This is critical: The individual must communicate that they can work a specific range of hours vs. the entire shift (as posted).
2. Award the shift to the individual
3. Edit the newly awarded (assigned) shift to honor the individual's request.
- This will split the original shift up into parts. One part will be the shift you awarded the requester - The remaining will be open shift(s); depending on situation.
