Shift Trade - Instructions for Staff

Amion lets you trade shifts with colleagues. Choose a shift you to give away, the person who will take it, and a shift that you will take in return.

You can also tag shifts you would like to give or trade away. You and your colleagues can then propose swaps from the trade pool.

1. Log in to your group's schedule at On the main toolbar at the top, click on the swap icon switch.gif (218 bytes).
