A work scheduling app that allows workers to give and take shifts easily.
Employees have no common space to trade or accept shifts. They currently must message each coworker separately when trying to give away a shift, which is efficient and time consuming. With trying to give away one shift, said person may message up to 20 different co workers on different platforms.
Create a work scheduling app that includes a section for connecting all employees to trade and accept shifts easily.
A common thing for employees to do is trade shifts but none of the current scheduling apps/systems offer shift trading features.
As an employee, I want someone to take my shift as quickly as possible so I can focus on my other activities stress-free.
As an employee, I want to be able to pick up shifts easily, so i can get paid more.
The landing page of the app will be the user’s current week schedule. They are able to slide to view past and future weeks.
There is an organization tab on the Shift trade section to help users view the listing the way they would like. They are able to sort by closest date, furthest date and most recently added shifts as well as filter by job and post type.
Users can put their shifts up for taking by clicking the plus icon located on the bottom right corner. Users then will be prompted to select a date and the shift they would like to post. They are also given the option to write an incentive to encourage coworkers as well as the option for coworkers to switch shifts.
Coworkers can bargain for shifts if more than one person wants to take the shift. Once users claim a shift, a notice will pop up for them to confirm their action.
A user can view all their current and past notifications in the notifications tab. They can also click on specific notifications which then, the app will direct them accordingly. In this example, it shows the user clicking on a comment notification, which directs them to the comments section of their shift posting.
Users will be notified when a new shift switch request has been made. Users then are able to click on the notification and view all their requests. They then are able to accept shift swaps.
