The Shifts tab will default to showing your your shifts. If you work at multiple Locations, this will default to show you all shifts at 'All Locations'.

To view a list of all shifts for you and your colleagues, use the tab 'All Rotas' at the top of the page and scroll down to see the shifts.

Open Shifts

If you want to claim a shift, simply tap on it and then 'Claim Shift'. Please be aware you will not be able to claim a shift if you have a clashing shift or are not assigned to work that Role.

Shift Actions

Some shifts can be acted upon (e.g. requesting unavailability, shift swaps, clocking in/out). Tapping on an actionable shift will bring up the available options.


If you have access to the Availability section in RotaCloud, you can get to it by tapping 'Availability' across the top of the Shifts page. From there, you can see your existing availability patterns, edit them, and create new ones.
