Mobile - Swapping shifts

Updated by Leigh Hutchens

You can request to swap shifts with a colleague in the Quinyx mobile app.

  1. Select the day and shift that you want to swap from your own shifts.
  2. Select Swap shift.
  1. Select the date and colleague you have agreed to swap with. Select Swap shift.


You and your colleague will be notified when a decision on your request has been made.

If you've made a shift swap request and later decide to withdraw the request, go to the swap request, and press Withdraw shift swap request.

If you're a Quinyx superuser and the swap option is not available even after enabling access in Mobile and staff portal permission, contact our Quinyx Support Team.

Mobile shift swap board for approval and follow up

We have a Shift swap board in our mobile apps where you can get an overview of everything related to shift swaps. We've also implemented the possibility for users to approve shift swap requests initiated by colleagues. The shift swap board provides the following possibilities to you:

  • You can approve or deny all the shift swap requests that your colleagues sent to you before they are approved or go to your manager for approval.
  • You can see all shift swap requests and their status, both shift swap requests you have initiated and ones your colleagues sent to you for approval.
  • You can send reminders to your colleagues if they don't approve your shift swap request.
  • You can withdraw a shift swap request that is not approved or denied by your colleague in time.
  • You can also write a message for the shift swap request.
With release 3.11, we no longer support shift swap approvals in the Manager tab in the mobile app. Go to Schedule > Notifications to approve shift swap requests. You can also approve shift swap requests from on your smartphone.
