Shift Trade Requests

Paycor Legacy Support

May 8th, 2024 Updated

If the option to trade shifts has been enabled via the Settings (gear icon) - Schedule - Preferences page, then staff members will be able to trade shifts with each other. If you're okay with staff members trading shifts with other staff members that do not share the same jobs, there's an option you can enable. Additionally, by default, Supervisor level users will be required to approve shift trades. If you want this process to be automated, and allow staff members to trade shifts without approval, you can definitely do that. The options can be seen in the image below:


While reviewing pending Shift Trade requests, you can review shift information, and make a decision on whether you want to approve a Shift Trade request, or reject a Shift Trade request.

To approve a Shift Trade request, click the checkmark button. To reject a Shift Trade request, click the x button.


Once a Shift Trade request has been approved, Paycor Scheduling will automatically swap the shifts via the Schedule page, and the staff members will be notified that their request to trade shifts has been approved. The same notification process will occur for rejected Shift Trade requests as well.
