Offer up a shift

As an Employee, when you are unable to work a scheduled shift and need to find a replacement/cover, you can offer your shift in the Shift Pool on the 7shifts app. This allows your coworkers to volunteer to take it.

In this article, you'll see how to offer up one of your scheduled shifts on the web and mobile app.
