How do I post a shift with a pre-assigned worker?

Learn how workers can be assigned to vacant shifts on the hub.

Sometimes, a worker may have agreed with a department to work a specific shift before it has been posted using Patchwork. In these instances, or in cases of retrospective bookings for workers to claim for additional hours worked, it is possible for managers to pre-assign workers at the time of shift creation:

  1. Select ‘Shifts’ from menu then select ‘Request Shift

  2. Fill in all the required vacancy detail fields

  3. Select the worker in the 'Clinician (Optional)'

  4. On the calendar, select the required day(s). If assigning a worker to multiple days, shift start and end times must be consistent

  5. Click ‘Request Shift


💡Use the 'Worker Notes' box to include relevant information about the shift(s) for the worker to see in the app.
