Things to know before you begin:

  1. It is up to the manager to approve or reject the request.
  2. Employees must always provide a reason for each release request.
  3. You can only view potential covers who will be in the same position as yours.
  4. You will also be able to choose staff members who are unavailable as a potential cover when requesting a shift release.
  5. More than one potential cover can be selected.
  6. You will receive notifications via Email and SMS.
