Enable Transfer Bid Shifts (bid shifts that can be shared across locations)

Updated Feb 13, 2021

The Transfer Bid Shifts feature adds new functionality that allows managers to open up bid shifts to employees from other locations, as well as restrict employees from being able to bid on shifts that exceed a configurable limit of overtime.

For a primer on bid shifts, check out Maximize Scheduling Efficiency Using Bid Shifts. Instructions for utilizing Transfer Bid Shifts can be found in our Manager Guide: Scheduling and Approving Transfer Bid Shifts.

If you enable Transfer Bid Shifts, make sure to let your employees know to look for the word 'Transfer' when picking up a bid shift and to note the location of the shift.

Enable "Transfer Bid Shifts"

Locate the option under Company Settings and set to Yes

At the Corporate level, open the Set Up tab and click Company Settings.

Locate the Transfer Bid Shift section and toggle the button to Yes to enable transfer bid shifts:

This will open up an additional option to set the mile radius for other allowable locations:

Enable and set an overtime threshold (optional)

If desired, enable the prevention of picking up overtime shifts and set the overtime threshold:

The overtime threshold is for any hours "greater than" the number set. Thus, if we want to prevent employees from picking up bid shifts that would accrue ANY overtime, we would simply leave the threshold at 0.
